Weather The Storm

Hey, look, I wrote an actual interactive story finally! :slight_smile: A cozy little 2500-ish word piece about spending a night at your family’s rustic cabin to get away from your troubles and…er…running into other troubles starting a fire, cooking food, etc.

I haven’t really written fiction since doing school assignments as a teenager in the 90s, so I don’t expect the story is anything to write home about, but I had fun making it, and hey, feedback is welcome. And as a little experiment in using cycling links to select verb/noun commands and storylets to respond to them, it might be interesting to some people as a more worked-out TinyQBN example.

Play it at or check out the source code on GitHub.


That was really fun to play, Josh! It’s been years since I was anywhere outdoorsy, and having been stuck in front of a computer in my London flat for months it was great to imagine being up in the mountains! Thanks for supplying the source code, too!


That was fun! :+1:
One thing that was slightly annoying is having to scroll up to move to a new location after trying a lot of commands. Repeating the initial paragraph (or a minified version with only the links) after every command might work or perhaps having the initial paragraph in its own frame that stays at the top of the screen.

Oh, good thought. Shouldn’t be too hard, either.

And thanks!
