Anybody know a smart place to export my game to once I'm done writing/re-writing it (which I'm sure will take another year or two)?
I know I'll have to export it by hand, but if my ultimate intention is to make an android and iphone app (via hiring a developer)... should I move it by hand to Inkle? Quest? CoG? A plain word or notepad document?
Don't want to waste money hiring a developer to do the data transfer that I wouldn't mind doing myself anyways...
@Morgan_R was working on a project that could allegedly convert to Twine, but otherwise your best bet is probably copy pasting all your shit into a Word document
Never got as far as Advanced Editor support, sorry to say.
fyi, anything made here is property of Halogen (or some word like that) Studios. It's in CYS' terms of serveces. Legally, I think you may need to receive permission from Alex, but in reality I don't think he'd mind. idk, others know more about this than me.
except alex has literally said it doesn't matter, and the disclaimer is there to protect the members
I actually emailed Alex about that when I started... He said I can still independently publish whatever I want (and that others had done so in the past?)...
Thanks so much Stryker and all. :-D
I wouldn't have a clue how to calculate the number of pixies or whatever magic you said makes these computers 'go', so will see if I can twist a developer's arm to do it all for me, and then will keep Twine as a close second depending on the cost.
With regards to sales, I'm actually pretty sure the app will be free (including no commercials). It's definitely more of a passion project.
I've actually been enjoying the book assembly and light coding/scripting aspects of this site's bookbuilder (although, ironically, I haven't been able to get font changes to stick!), so I think I would like Twine.
With regards to happily curling up in a ball and going around singing praises of ink/twine... Would I have to be rolling or can there be some sort of a wagon? :-)
