A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Elm Story is a free, cross-platform design tool that helps authors, designers and students visually compose and publish immersive storyworlds. Featuring a virtual storyteller (DM), audiences experience branching narratives tailored to player choice.
- No-code and no-DSL, for real: focus only on writing and design, handle everything else through the user interface.
- Easy to learn: start creating your own worlds by simply linking events.
- Narrative first (storyworld-focused): easily manage all the components of a storyworld (characters, objects, places, events, variables).
- Quality based narrative: the content of the narrative varies according to the qualities of the player or the world. Virtual storyteller: a system capable of dynamically managing the process of creating a narrative according to the interactions of the players.
- Self-publication: import your worlds and export them to JSON or offline-ready, installable web apps.
In future, Elm Story will help designers and writers to generate content for a dynamic and procedural storyworld capable of combining the incredible experiences arising from a previously designed and well-structured narrative with the dynamic simulation created with a bottom-up approach bringing closer the utopia of an emergent narrative with dramatic elements generated from above.
