I somewhat remember it, too. Wasn't it something like YAGI or YAAGI as in Yet Another Adventure Game Interpreter?

I did a little Googling on it, but didn't get any hits. I didn't spend too long on it. I had some memory of a link to it on Nick Sonneveld's site, but could not find anything when I looked there. Half of the links there are now dead, anyway.

Did a quick google for AGI interpreters, and found these:

DAGII -- written in Portable C++ (hehehe, "Interpreter Interpreter" ;D )
AGI -- written in Java (VERY confusing name, that!)
MeAGI -- written mainly for phones'n such, and doesn't seem finished

That's all I can find (besides the typical ones: NAGI, Sarien and ScummVM). No YAGI or such.

Another thing I've found:
http://web.ist.utl.pt/antonio.afonso/agi/
I can't check it out, cause I'm at work right now (LSL might have a boss key, but still...), but'll check it out further this evening.

Yeah, that looks like the very first AGI interpreter written in Javascript. Sarien.net was the second such interpreter but is obviously the more advanced one these days. The one you've linked to was written in 2006 I think, and sarien.net was around 2008. Incidentally, I know of a third AGI interpreter written in Javascript that is being worked on at present but I have no idea what the status is. It hasn't been released.

I recall that Sarien had an earlier name that started with Y... something like Ydrassil (I've definitely got that spelt wrong... might have had a g in it as well).

Anyone have some old DOS binaries of Sarien?

Dunno if it's this one, but modified: 2004-07-21... Comes pretty close, no? Especially since all the Win versions I find that clearly state they're win versions, are from 2007.

There is an MS-DOS version there, but it loads the title screens (after complaining that it couldn't ID them) and then lock up.

Stuart George is still contactable. I was talking to him about 6 months ago. He might be able to answer the DOS question for us. He might even have a version sitting around.
