An Game Creator Is You

Posted on 25 April, 2013


There aren’t any big words for this post, really.  Since I’ve sort of vaguely hinted at it before, I’m just posting this to let people know that there is this thing called Twine.  It lets you make games.  With texts and clicks.  Like this one.  Some clever folks have put in graphics, but that’s not really necessary.

Also, you should make a game.  No, seriously.  Don’t be intimidated.  It will only take 15 minutes, it’s easy, and it’s worth it.  It doesn’t even have to be about anything or for anyone.  You should open up Twine, follow along with these two tutorial screencasts, let it compile, open it up, and look at what you’ve done.  Even if you never move on to want to do anything more complex, congratulate yourself, you created a game in Twine.  That will be with you forever now, game creator.
