Bringing Storytellers and Technology together
to create living, breathing, interactive story worlds
Tell me a Story!
StoryStylus is a publishing platform that makes it easy to create narrative-driven games. Aimed at amateur and established storytellers, you can create story games with your text, media files and a little bit of coding.
StoryStylus is in open beta. That means we’re working to regularly add new features, giving you more options for creating your living, breathing, interactive story worlds. At this stage, we welcome early adopters with extra patience as we further refine the development process. Your feedback benefits everyone!
We work with students, authors, game designers and #1 New York Times best-sellers to create engaging, story-driven games. We’re passionate about storytelling in games and we believe great content creators should be paid for their great work!
How Does STORYSTYLUS Work?
Creating story games with StoryStylus is simple AND fun.
Copy & paste your text, drag and drop media files (photos, illustrations, sound files) and when you’re ready, there’s some simple logic and LUA scripting to put it all together. If you’ve never coded before, it might seem daunting at first. We’ve got great Help files and YouTube tutorials.
Make your story worlds linear, branching or sandbox exploration-like. Create top-down exploration maps or a Point-of-View world for players to explore. Want to add challenging quests for players that are time-based or collectables to find? We’ve got you covered.
What Games Has It Made?
StoryStylus has been available to the public since late 2015. We’ve created mystery, sci-fi, cyberpunk and thriller games so far and you can find them at One More Story Games. They have all different art styles, stories and voices because different storytellers and artists collaborated on them. We’ve got cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic, mystery and dark comedies.
Stay tuned for the release of the interactive game based on #1 NYT best-selling author Charlaine Harris’s book Shakespeare’s Landlord!
Who Should Use StoryStylus?
StoryStylus is for storytellers young or old. Whether you’re a writer, game designer, screenwriter, graphic novelist or poet, use it to prototype, create games to cross-promote your books, or create games to publish in our marketplaces. Or just practice your storytelling skills.
We also work with educators and libraries to teach youth how to create story games – developing their language, communication, logic and programming skills.
We’re developing StoryStylus to be as easy as possible. In our beta release, you’ll see us continue to develop features, implement your feedback and build an amazing platform for the next generation of storytelling games.
