One of the first times I ever really joined in with a weight gain community was on writing.com on those cool interactive stories, before they decided to basically make anything impossible to read if you were so much as to exist for a minute (except for the first 3 chapters, of course). The first interactive I had encountered was The Curse of the Lipomancer, and after that I had branched out to others, but always returned to that one the most. Either way, its ease of ability to contribute to a story and watch it develop as others added to it was honestly kinda fun. Seeing how the story went when selecting one option and then later being able to go back and read through all of the possibilities just made it fun.
Either way, I’ve never been code savvy enough to start an elaborate project, but I’m also not exactly active enough to contribute to other projects (I have a tendency to vanish for a month or so at a time), so Writing provided the perfect environment to contribute something every now and again.
Does anyone know of any alternatives to Writing that either allow the creation of interactive chapters and/or the ability to add to them? Any of them that allow weight gain related content?
If not any of that, does anybody know of a game engine or website with a simple interface designed for writing stories with branching chapters? I remember images for The Pokemon Village while it was in progress showing what looked like story nodes being connected together, though I’m not sure what that was.
And for reference of personal ease of access, TextAdventures standard engine left me confused, and the other left me realizing how convoluted just making a few branches would become. Though, if there is an alternative to TA’s Quest or the other one that might be good for others to see, I’m don’t want to hold anyone back from sharing information that could be gold to someone else.
Also, I suppose if any is curious or was wondering, my username in Writing is “what”, so if you are able to catch a chapter before being blocked out, that’s where you can find it.
