Way to make it where players only have a current amount of time to pick

Twine Version: Harlowe
I want to make it where you only have a few seconds to pick then it picks an option for you is there a way

Harlowe has a macro called (live:) that I think you’ll want to use.


Essentially, it starts a countdown, when the page is displayed, that can then execute whatever is inside the macro. I believe a (live:) loops unless there is a (stop:) macro inside when it fires.

Here’s a very in depth tutorial about how to take advantage of the (live:) macro.

So yes, Harlowe can do what you’ve described.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
