This extension was inspired by a forum request and my long standing passion for good old role playing games (pen and paper). Also I was an avid reader of these great interactive book from the eighties (my youth). I think there is nothing more inspiring then getting the imagination inflated with imaginary worlds of fiction and possibilities. Then with the dawn of computing text adventures became the first games widely available and since got much underrated with better and better graphics. Twine is a facinating software that enables educators and non-coders to start writing an interactive text adventure. And the focus is on the imagination of the reader … that said HypeTwineStage is a visual extension to underpin the story and bring your text-adventure into the world of picture books. In my opinion using this extension is very intentional from the beginning with a focus on a visual audience (young children etc.) or a tool to spice up an project with design and great illustration that initially had it’s focus on the story. Always remember story telling is what Twine is really about!
This first release is somewhat of an Beta as using it will show if command, interface or other things need to be tweaked for better usage. Your welcome to try it and give me some feedback. For documentation read the examples and code, for now! The extension is based on the Sugarcube-Storyformat.
