Story Nexus, or Where the Fuck Did the Gamebook Go
« on: October 16, 2012, 11:14:17 pm »
So the folks behind Fallen London, a text based game full of hijinks and waiting-ten-minutes-for-your-energy-to-recharge have released StoryNexus.

http://www.storynexus.com/s

It's a tool set to create text based browser games. When hearing the news, I immediately flashed back to the gamebook wiki--that I'm PRETTY SURE was a real thing and not in my imagination--that was (maybe) on the Black Iron Prison. But I can't seem to find it, so balls.

So there once was an interactive fiction story around here, and now there's a tool to make interactive fiction.

I'm going to check it out in the next few days, but I figured some folks here might be interested.


If you haven't played Fallen London, check it out. It's got a very interesting game mechanic to it, and allows for ludicrously dynamic branching stories.

Cheers.

This is a very well-constructed spambot.
