How to build your own game on Twine

Are you an aspiring game developer but don't know where to start? Then Twine may be the perfect tool for you.

Twine is an online tool that allows you to develop text-based adventure games, similar to the ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ books we read when we were young. The only difference is that this time it’s online: you can create an interactive adventure where your decisions impact the story.

Why Twine?

Now that you know what it is, why use it? There are a few reasons to use Twine, and they’re all compelling!

For a start, it’s free, which means anyone and everyone can download and use it.

It’s also very accessible, making it ideal for first-time game developers (or anyone who wants to tell a good story). You don’t need to know how to code or worry about creating 3D models of dragons to fight. Your words are all you need to create a compelling story. Twine's functionality is so simple that it should take you only 10–15 minutes to get a solid handle on the basics.

Lastly, your finished game is a website, meaning it can be played by anyone who has access to the internet (no expensive graphics card required). Simply upload it once it’s done and watch as hundreds of thousands (hopefully) of people play your game across the world wide web.
