So here's something I've been very, very bad at self-promoting:

Fractive is my open-source tool for writing hypertext games using Markdown!

It's a little bit like Twine, but for people who'd rather just write straight-ahead instead of fussing with the node graph.

You can also easily add custom game logic with Javascript if you want (though it's not at all necessary to make a normal hypertext game).

And it's extremely extensible; for example, @nqn has integrated with it to do some hybrid hypertext + graphical stuff.


It's been kind of a neat little side project for me to learn how to do stuff in a web-style environment, after so many years working in "traditional" .

Figured I should probably tell... anyone... about it... ever. 😂
