BIG CHAOS TWINE JAM

 

make a Twine game over Sunday/Monday (here’s a tutorial). I’ll post them on Tuesday and still be taking submissions up until they get posted.

have fun!!!

to submit games: tweet me at @aliendovecote

hosting the HTML file: if you don’t have your own space or a friend’s space, you can use dropbox, google drive, or some other free hosting service.

 

OPTIONAL POWER THEME #1:

use this video game name generator as inspiration

 

OPTIONAL POWER THEME #2: Use custom CSS (this controls the aesthetic appearance of HTML)

Here’s how!

1) Make a passage and put “stylesheet” in the tag section (the title can be whatever)

2) Do CSS! Don’t know CSS? That’s okay, just copy and paste CSS from other sources and modify it. All my games have their source available too if you want examples.

The best thing about CSS is you don’t need to know CSS. You can google “[stuff i wanna do] css” and you’ll probably find it real easy. Like, “background color css” or “fonts css” and stuff way more esoteric than that because CSS has been around forever.
