Orbit: Digital Storytelling – Let’s Create Twine Games!

February 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

This month’s Digital Storytelling meetup will feature a group activity where participants will make a game using Twine, an accessible visual tool for creating branching stories and interactive fiction. No previous experience with Twine is necessary, so newcomers are encouraged to join in! We will be covering some basics about Twine up front, and providing a freeform Q&A session as we all work on creating our own Twine projects during the gathering.

NOTE: Due to the current circumstances, this is an online-only event. We are hosting it on our Discord server, which you can join using this link: discordapp.com/invite/mrTDyau

ABOUT ORBIT: DIGITAL STORYTELLING

Do you like to write? Do you like story based games?

If you are new to game development you can learn how to create interactive stories using Ren’py, Twine, or other game engines! We will also discuss other aspects of writing, game design, and interactive fiction.

The Digital Storytelling Orbit group meets at 1pm every first Saturday of the month in the #general-voice channel of the Tech Valley Game Space Discord. These group meetups provide opportunities for participants to share information, discuss projects, ask questions, and obtain guidance from experienced mentors.
