Releasing a (free) JavaScript game-story scripter & engine


To browser game developers

We are considering releasing our JavaScript game-story scripter and engine as a free download, which could be easily integrated in your browser game development cycle for creating, testing and integrating game story scripts in the rest of your game.

What the engine does is taking game-story scripts written in JavaScript and running them in both emulator mode or (of course) integrated in the real game, supporting maintaining state of environment, player and non-player characters.

Would anyone be interested in getting it? As it will require some (little) effort to remove some dependencies to our overall framework before releasing it, and we won’t do it if no one is interested. Let us know in comments below or e-mail (

    This would be great to play with. In all honesty I probably wouldn’t end up making anything big with it, but it looks very intriguing.

    I’d love to play around with it! My girlfriend runs a bunch of roleplay forums and I think that working such a thing into her SMF forums would be sextacular.

  3. Ben says:

    Definitely interested. I’m preparing a class in game storytelling and exploring tools that will be useful.

  4. Very very interested!
    I am TA in a storytelling/interactive visualization class and one of the groups considers doing their application in js/html5. This sounds like a great fit!

    I would love to see what this is and how I could use it, even if I don’t end up using it… “not invented here syndrome.”

  6. What was your verdict? We’d love to see it, but what is your decision?

  7. So we are already at work doing it (see last entry on this site for details also about what we are creating). Thank you all for your feedback!

    I’d be very very very interested :-) (also in contributing, if this is going to be open source)
