I want to learn how to create a simple web browser game. Finding Twine I discovered a away to play with html that isn’t too complicated as I have 2 Weeks to work with it.
Following the tutorials by user VegetarianZombie on YouTube, I’ve created a demo game following his narrative.
The aim is just to follow along, and learn how to create so that I can apply this to my own work.
This is what the initial page looks like. An interesting part about twine is that you can save within your browser.
Although you can save your project as a file, and it’s probably a good idea when finishing for the day.
The structure looks like this. Each box represents a page of text. To go through to the next page you add a [[ ]] to the box with text you want to sprout pages from. If you want to change the name of the new page from the text in the [[ ]], then you add a | beside it. For example:
[[“Go Home” | This is you’re home]]
To add variables/numbers you can change, you structure it like (set: $theamount to 1) on the starting page.
And that was the first two tutorials. Here is the think to the playlist:
