Playable Stories is a narrative game engine. The system allows game designers to focus on designing compelling digital stories and visual experiences, without needing any coding background. If you can use a content management system like WordPress to create stories for the web, you can create a Playable Story. Here is a link to our demo game, Can you make it in the VA?
