For Redlance, who’s getting sick of -30 workdays (and demanded a summer pic).
Admit it, you remember those things. Usually the only books worth reading at your school library…. I’m on a search to find a program to help me write one of those monsters. More in the lines of the old Fighting Fantasy gamebooks though. Specifically - I’d like something that would allow the reader to jump to paragraphs at any time. (to visit different locations whenever they wish)
So far, I’ve looked into Inklewriter, Quest and a few others that don’t seem to fit the bill. They appear to be very linear, in the sense that if a location is revealed to the reader, you must visit it immediately, or miss out on that adventure.
Of course, those programs might have those options and I am just not understanding them well enough to take advantage of them.
I COULD just write the thing out the good old fashioned way, but I like the idea of the maps these programs use to remind me if there’s a path I’ve forgotten to finish.
