Write Video Games

Okay, while I try to convenience Kevin that this needs to be our next Write Along Challenge, you guys need to check out this fantastic online tool for telling stories, Twine. Essentially, it lets you build a multiple choice narrative in ‘choose your own adventure’ game style. AND it’s a free program that you can download.

writing video gamesThis is a way of combining storytelling with game building, and the best part is that you don’t need to know code at all. You don’t need to draw pictures. You don’t need to make things move. You just need to write a story that could have various outcomes depending upon the reader’s choice.

I LOVE IT. I also love this handy dandy article that breaks down Twine in a step-by-step explanation on how to build your game. All you need is Twine, this post, and a story, and you are rolling.
