StoryNexus: building your own adventure games

If you’re a veteran gamer you’ll remember the golden era of text-based adventures. The Hobbit, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Zork… titles that conjured whole worlds out of narrative descriptions and two-word player inputs.

That genre never went away, of course – interactive fiction communities still thrive on the web (a good place to look is the huge IF Archive). Often though, creating your own branching stories can be a complex undertaking; which is a where StoryNexus comes in. Billed as an interactive story platform, it allows users to create rich ‘storygames’ through an accessible point-and-click interface. These works can then be shared and even sold online.
