Hey guys, I’ve created my own choice-based interactive fiction site: diorama2-ussherpress.rhcloud.com
(I actually tried to post earlier but it’s not showing up. If it does show up, mods, feel free to delete this post.)
I was aware of existing systems for writing choice-based IF online, but I intentionally avoided reading about how they worked. I wanted t o see if I could design it with my own ideas in mind first.
My original goal was to write a site that made it easy to write quick, short narratives that you could share easily with others. However, after a while, I added more features to the site and soon found the syntax became a bit unwieldy. I wrote the first version of the site last summer. You can visit it at www.diorama.club.
Fast forward to a couple of months ago. I decided to rewrite the site and improve the syntax slightly. That’s what you see at diorama2-ussherpress.rhcloud.com. It’s still a work in progress. There are tutorials on the site to show how the syntax works. I created some examples as well, but admittedly I’m not a writer, so they aren’t the greatest.
Thanks for reading!
