Choose Your Own Twitter Adventure

Terence Eden has created a CYOA game on Twitter and describes his creative process here on his blog. Inspired by reading ‘The Wanderer’ by Timothy J Jarvis (- an eldritch horror novel), he used Inklewriter to construct a branching narrative, which was then published to 23 separate Twitter accounts (which as he explains, is more complicated than it sounds). The story quickly went viral and has received coverage in The Independent and The Telegraph amongst other publications, so we should undoubtedly expect further updates in due course. It would be interesting to see how the same technology or similar like Twine might be used for a CYOA journalism game?
