I don't really use Inform, but if I have a sudden urge to create a z-machine game I will use inform 6 because 7 is so far outside of my programmer comfort zone.

Also there is an emacs inform-mode. Not sure if it is up to date to run with modern versions of editor and language, but it can hopefully still be used somehow.

Thanks all! This should be fun to play around with. :) Where can I find an Inform6 compiler/editor? The link through the IFArchive appears to be dead...

I cleaned up and uploaded an unfinished I6 game to Itch for Emily Short's Bring Out Your Dead last year and spent about two days fixing issues in the code. It was actually a lot of fun and in many ways simple parser IF is easier (to me) in I6 than I7. But anything serious I would do in I7.
