Storymoto, the JavaScript game-story engine, is online

Storymoto demo

Storymoto is online here: http://storymoto.gamamoto.com/ . Online there is a demo, full sources (on GitHub) and also HTML and PDF documentation.

Storymoto is a prototyping tool that is particularly easy to put online – just HTML and JavaScript files, no server side or database needed. Hence it is a particularly practical prototyping tool, reducing testing costs to a minimum. Reloading the game after a change is as simple as reloading an HTML page (actually there is even a button to do that) – it could hardly be faster and more practical.

So if it is of any use for you – please donate and help us bring the project forward!
