TinyStory is a small indentation-based Pick Thine Individual Escapades engine I wrote some years ago just for the fun of it. It's not very powerful, probably has a whole bunch of limitations, but it works and you can play around with it too!

You'll find a sample game and manual included with the zip, as well as over on Github. Check out In Your Room and Looks Like Rain if you want to see it in action!

If you happen to create something with it, tag it with tinystory and feel free to share it with me!

Note: Simply opening the index.html won't work because the file:/// protocol doesn't allow the game file to be loaded. It will have to be uploaded to a server (or itch.io) to be played, so for writing and testing, I recommend Brackets. It comes with a Live Preview feature that takes care of all that, plus it allows live editing of CSS and such, which is pretty neat!
