In November, Write an Interactive Novel with Us!

Posted by: Dan Fabulich | Comments (5)

Have you ever wanted to write an interactive novel? November is National Novel Writing Month or “NaNoWriMo” for short. This year, thousands of authors will write 50,000 words of fiction between November 1st and November 30th.

Of course, most NaNoWriMo authors will write traditional linear novels this year, but we’d like to invite you use ChoiceScript to write an interactive NaNoWriMo novel. ChoiceScript is a simple programming language for writing multiple-choice games (MCGs) like ours. Writing games with ChoiceScript is easy and fun, even for authors with no programming experience.

And you won’t be alone! A number of authors on our forum are going to work on their novels this month together, reporting their progress and encouraging each other to finish.

When you’re finished, you can even submit your finished ChoiceScript game to us; we’ll host it for you publicly and give you a share of the revenue your game produces.

Choice of Games wishes all participants of NaNoWriMo the best of luck. Happy writing!

    Even if you’re not writing a game feel free to drop by the thread and join us. Or just cheer the participants on. It’s proving a lot of fun so far, and the more the merrier.

      Emily come join us on the forums. Even if you don’t hit the 50,000 word mark it doesn’t matter, we’re still having a lot of fun. Some are doing traditional novels, some are writing Choice of Games, and some of us don’t have a clue what we’re writing, only that there are words on the screen and hopefully it’ll make sense by the end of the month.

        Hahah wow, I would love to but I rarely get on the computer and if I do it’s on a public computer… If I still owned my old computer I would. And when I get my new computer I plan on making a choice script game… But I am still really looking forward to all the amazing writings.
