How do I create IF map?

Get help using Construct 2

Hello guys,

I've been trying to wrap my mind around the concept of a map in an Interactive Fiction game.
Like in the old days where you would have to type "move north" but without having an actual map, just text.
But in reality the player would move in a labyrinth-like map with walls and rooms.
I couldn't find anything in the forums, can anyone help me come up with a solution?

Thanks

It is not entirely clear what you are trying to do. You just want to have a player sprite move around a graphical map?

I don't check the forums much anymore, but I will receive an email for PMs.

I haven't attempted it myself but I think it's just a matter of assigning different squares to different arrays and saving info into a JSON file.

Each array element has multiple conditions.
Maybe:
[0][0][x] can contain ID of square and actual position of a square in a map
[0][1][y] can contain info like number of directions possible and id of adjacent squares.
[0][2][z] can contain info like items and interact-able elements in the map...
