Over at inkle we’re trying to put together a web-tool for writing interactive stories using a CYOA-style paradigm. It’s aimed for non-programmer, entry-level users - we’d quite like to get it into schools, for instance - but it might provide a good starting point to get people interested in writing interactively, before they move on to the Inform 7 and Varytale’s of this world. (It’s more-or-less the same as Adventure Book from many moons ago, which is kinda ironic.)
We’re approaching an alpha version: doesn’t look too shiny, but it has all the right buttons.
We could use some people to test it - see if you get it, see if you like it, see if you can crash it. Anyone interested?
There’s a screenshot (of what it will look like, rather than what it does look like right now…) up on our website if you want to get a sense of the thing:
If you’re interested, please drop me a line on email@example.com – and if any of you are/know any teachers who might be interested in using such a thing, feel free to forward on the link / my email address.
