About the ChoiceScript Wiki
This Wiki is a ChoiceScript Game Developers' Community Project, created by the community, for the community. It is intended for anyone who plans to learn ChoiceScript, for those in need of clarification on specific subjects or commands, and those just seeking a clearer understanding of the likely cause(s) of a particular error.
What is ChoiceScript?
Developing Interactive Novels with ChoiceScript is simple and fun. It's free to use, doesn't require any previous programming experience, and it's very easy to learn -- while also being a powerful and flexible development tool for experienced users with highly creative ideas.
ChoiceScript games can be published on the web, on iOS, Android and Kindle devices, and even on Steam. ChoiceScript authors earn royalties from their games when published by Choice of Games LLC. (View the requirements on their website.)
