Writing Interactive Fiction with Twine: Play Inside a Story

If you've ever dreamed about walking through the pages of a book, fighting dragons, or exploring planets then Twine is for you. This interactive fiction program enables you to create computer games where worlds are constructed out of words and simple scripts can allow the player to pick up or drop objects, use items collected in the game to solve puzzles, or track injury in battle by reducing hit points. If you've clicked your way through 80 Days, trekked through the underground Zork kingdom, or attempted to save an astronaut with Lifeline, you're already familiar with interactive fiction. If not, get ready to have your imagination stretched as you learn how to direct a story path.

The best part about interactive fiction stories is that they are simple to make and can serve as a gateway into the world of coding for the nonprogrammer or new programmer.

You'll find expert advice on everything from creating vivid characters to building settings that come alive. Ford's easy writing prompts help you get started, so you'll never face a blank screen. Her "Try It Out" exercises go way beyond the basics, helping you bring personal creativity and passion to every story you create!
