I absolutely adore ink — it’s a deceptively simple language for writing interactive fiction that has incredible layers of functionality — and I used to love working in Twine. Over a few years of working in Twine the workflow started to bother me — working in the GUI was buggy and not very conductive, and writing in plain text / Twee code and then compiling via a command-line was also arduous.
After Death Does Something Nice! I lost interest in writing interactive fiction, even as my love for it grew from reading work like Birdland by Brendan Patrick Hennessey or The Writer Will Do Something by Tom Bissell and Matthew S. Burns.
For transparency, I needed a cool icon for this project but I didn’t make it! It’s called “Drop” by Creative Stall via The Noun Project.
