So the other day, I found this open-source program called Twine from a blogger here on WordPress. Her own Twine story is interesting, and thanks to her, I felt the tug in my own heart. I wanna do something similar as well, as games is such a passion of mine. Though I don’t have anything special powering my stories, besides some wonky fantasy, I thought I’d give it a try.
The thought struck me, do people read these things nowadays? I know I do, but it is a “market” for it, so to speak? After some digging around in the forum for Twine, it seems that it is surely a big thing, maybe always have been or just recently grew? I’ve really only heard of and played Visual Novels before and being mostly from Japan or in that, let’s say, “genre”, it lacks many things that one would want.
When I found this, and the concept of “Interactive Stories” it blew my minds. The possibilities!
Have any of you read these Twine stories before, anything like them and/or Visual Novels?
