Did you ever play (read?) a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style book, and think, "I could make one of these!"? If so then this is the Experience for you!

We'll show you how to download and get started using a tool called Twine. This is a browser-based tool and is designed to make it easy for users to create precisely this type of content. As well as showing you how to use Twine, we'll also have suggestions for how to plan your adventure effectively. Once we've shown you the basics then we'll also discuss some of the advanced features of Twine so that you can create the best adventure game possible.

This experience will show you how to make an exciting interactive game in which the reader tells their own story and takes charge of their own character's destiny!
