Hi I’m new to inform and intfiction. I started writing my own IF a week ago but I would like to know if their is any way to monetize my inform7 stories. Any help will be highly appreciated.
The easiest way is to use the “Release along with an interpreter” option to create an HTML/JS playable web page; then upload that to Itch.io as a web-playable game. Itch.io lets you offer a game for any price (or pay-what-you-want) and it’s very easy to get started with.
Of course, promoting your game is an entirely separate problem.
There is currently no easy way to make a Mac/Windows executable game file out of an Inform game. I’m working on something, though.
how do you create a HTML/JS playable web page
Read the manual chapter 25, particularly 25.11.
First, add this to your game code:
Release along with a website and an interpreter.
Then, click on the ‘Release’ button at the top-left.
