Make interactive stories for mobile with Gamebook.io
|Richard Harris in Game Development Wednesday, April 4, 2018|
Story-Driven content creation platform, Gamebook.io, looks to help developers to create intelligent content for TV, eLearning, marketing, advertising applications, and more.
GameBook.io is designed for anyone who wants to quickly create interactive stories, including storytellers with little to no technical experience. At the center of Gamebook.io is an easy-to-use graphical, browser-based editing interface with a text editor for writing scripts, and a graphical branching editor to create and track branches in the story. A separate publishing screen enables storytellers to preview (or listen to) the story on their target device, to track various versions of the story (such as localized versions), and to access assets and images used in the story. Once a story is finalized, Gamebook.io can output it to mobile (iOS, Android) and Alexa, with support for PC via HTML5 coming later this year. Finally, support for multiple F2P monetization options enable storytellers build in ways to monetize their content.
“For over a decade, our team of game development veterans has created content for other studios around the world. We know how much effort can go into the creation of one interactive game, let alone two or three. Our mission for the last three years has been to change that,” said co-founder and CEO, Prof. Thomas Langhanki. “We want to enable storytellers, whether individuals or teams, to produce high-quality, immersive content and stories in weeks, not years, and to do so far more cost-effectively. The result of our efforts is Gamebook.io, which we've been using internally to create our own content and we're thrilled to finally announce to the world.”
For current developers of interactive stories, Gamebook.io provides a tested platform to simplify the creation of new content, such as episodes or chapters. For those not currently developing story-driven content, Gamebook.io makes it easy for studios to start. Examples of what can be created with Gamebook.io include “choose your own story” style games, interactive audio dramas on Alexa, interactive books and apps, interactive shows for TV, eLearning and Training applications, marketing and advertising applications, and much more.
