Twine

TwineYesterday I was reading this article over at Gamespot.com called Power to the People: The Text Adventures of Twine.  It is a very good read.  Talks about how a text adventure can be a game.  What got me the most is that any one can make one for free with the the program called Twine.   It is kind of like and web based choose your own adventure book.  Growing up we had a bunch of these book.   After watching the videos on how to use the program (you can see them here or below) it is a simple but very powerful program.  You are only limited by your imagination.  Going to give this a try.  Looks like it would be fun.   If it turns out ok or not will post it for sure.  If you want to see what a finished product looks like check out this link.  This is the one they use as an example in the GameSpot article.  Below are the videos on how to use the program.
