There’s no set-up, no programming, no drawing diagrams – so there’s nothing between you and the empty page. And once written, you can share your stories with whomever you like.
To support new writers and interactive story-telling, we ran a competition for inklewriter fiction.
The inklewriter lets you write as you play, branching the story with choices, and then linking those branches back together again.
That’s why we’ve created inklewriter, to help writers tell interactive tales with the minimum of fuss.
inklewriter keeps your branching story organised, so you can concentrate on what’s important – the writing.

The series was based upon a concept created by Edward Packard and originally published by Constance Cappel's and R. Montgomery's Vermont Crossroads Press as the "Adventures of You" series, starting with Packard's Sugarcane Island in 1976.
When Bantam, now owned by Random House, allowed the Choose Your Own Adventure trademark to lapse, the series was relaunched by Chooseco, which now owns the trademark.
Nineteen other series of the same format began being published by rival publishing houses.
The large popularity of the concept led to the titling of a new genre of writing for the format, which was called gamebooks.
This allows for a realistic sense of unpredictability, and leads to the possibility of repeat readings, which is one of the distinguishing features of the books.
