Do you want to explore the world of video game writing?
Developer Kent Hudson will soon publish his independent video game, The Novelist (trailer embedded above). We caught up with Hudson, getting some advice for aspiring video game writers:
If someone was looking to experiment with games, there is a free tool called Twine. It basically is a story tree. It is presented as a web page, so you can create little HTML stories. You can give the player as many choices as you want: Do you open the letter? Do you walk out the door? You can create however many branches you want. They pick one, and go to a new branch. When you are using the tool, it is actually visually mapped out. It’s really easy, simple and cheap to use.
