Create Your Own Interactive Story with Twine
If you’ve ever wanted to make your own game but were intimidated by the coding skills necessary, one easy option would be to create your own text adventure. Twine is a free program for PC and Mac that allows you to create interactive stories as easily as typing an email.
The interface consists simply of passages and links. The passages are your bits of text, and they link to each other to give the reader branching options. It can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. When you’re done, just export it as a webpage for anyone to view.
Although Twine is too barebones to create a role-playing adventure like you can with coding, it is a great way to get into interactive storytelling. It comes with no barriers of knowledge, price, or even platform, so if you’ve got an eye for fiction, get downloading!
