Tinychoice is a simple tool for making HTML text games, or stories with choices; it’s similar in principle to Twine but is much less complex and has fewer functions. You construct your entire game through the text field on the Tinychoice website, creating text ‘scenes’ and connecting them with hyperlink choices in your narrative. This produces an unadorned text game that you can save and upload to a host of your choice, though it may be possible for people with advanced HTML and CSS skills to customise and edit their game once it’s downloaded.
You can also export Tinychoice games to a format suitable for playing on Arduboy (an Arduino miniature game system the size of a credit card).
Unfortunately there are no tutorials available for Tinychoice, so you’ll have to work it out by playing around with it and downloading a sample game.
