Hugo is an Interactive Fiction development system by Kent Tessman. Plain text source code files are created using the Hugo programming language, and then compiled into a system-independent game file. Hugo source code files typically have the extension .hug. Compiled game files can be played on any system that has an appropriate interpreter.
Hugo allows for the creation of game with multimedia elements, such as sound, images and video. The multimedia resources are normally in separate files, and are distributed with the compiled .hex file in an archive file.
