software to write gamebooks ?

Farkran:


Hello everyone, this is Farkran of Divinegames.

We are fond of gamebooks and text adventures like you, and we decided to develop a gamebook creator which is complete, captivating and most importantly easy to use!

How often did you look for a editor and found only incomplete, overcomplicated or extremely limited programs? Our tool will be exactly the opposite: you will be able to use all the common features of a gamebook such as branching paths, but in addition you will be able to add and remove text dynamically through conditions, you will be able to set and use variables (such as character name, attributes, items, currency, experience and much more) and last but not least you will be able to export your book in a cool looking HTML page. All of this without need to know any programming language, because the program does it all by itself.

With your help, this project could come true :) support us on indiegogo: http://www.indiegogo.com/gamebook-creator?a=834321

If you are interested or if you have any question, contact us at [email protected]

Thank you for your attention!

Looks really fun Farkran!  :Thmbsup:

I could see designing this as raw webpages and then just giving each webpage a "page number". Then just export the whole thing.

GREAT!! please consider my requests on the post above:
visual branching of the scenes, playtesting and export to rtf/word
it'd be nice that your program would allow showing dice animations like the gamebooks from this site:

Good luck! I'll try to support your project asap

Edit:
If it's a NET app, have you thought of using MONO to support linux?
