Twine.jpgWas going though some of my old posts and realised that I have started or planed to start all kinds of projects.  The ones I have started never got finished and the ones I thought about never got started.  So on January 24, 2014 got back to work on a project I started back in February 2013.  Thins one has me using the program called Twine.   This lets you make a text based choose you own path program.  Some thing like those choose you own adventure books.  Mind you it can do a lot more than that.  The plan is to make a simple story with some comic book like drawings worked in.  So far the story is done and set in the program.  Have started the drawings now.  Mind you I can’t draw very well.  They look like the same way I used to draw when I was a kid.  So I guess that will be my “style”, lol.  The goal is to finish this and have it some were on this blog of all to see.  Not sue how that is going to work.  Since I have tired running a few test within WordPress.  Which didn’t work.  So will have to think of something new.

Twine.jpgBack in January made a post talking about Twine.  This is text/choose your own path program.  If you want to see a finished product on what it can do click the link.   Of course it can do more than that with it.  Well yesterday got around to giving it a try.  But first had to watch the beginner tutorial videos.  You can see them > here.

The plan is to make a simple story with some drawings worked into so I can get some use of my Wacom Bamboo Splash.  Have started the working on it.  It will not be a choose your own adventure.  More of a text story with some comic book strip worked in.  Pretty sure it will be pretty terrible.   But it is not about that.  Want to try this program.  It is very cool and easy to use.   Once I get finished with this project will post it.  In all its terrible glory.

TwineYesterday I was reading this article over at 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.
