What is ChoiceScript?

ChoiceScript is a simple scripting language developed by Adam Strong-Morse and Dan Fabulich of Choice of Games for writing text-based, multiple-choice games.

Developing "interactive fiction" story-games with ChoiceScript is simple and fun, it 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. ChoiceScript games are published on the web, on iOS and Android devices, and now even on Kindle.

Thinking of becoming a ChoiceScript Game Developer? Start by downloading the latest version (.zip file).

Can I edit this Wiki?

Only Admins are allowed to edit the main pages of this Wiki; this is in place to protect the Wiki from vandalism. You can still add comments on every page, and we invite you to post any and all suggestions for improvements on the official ChoiceScript forum in the Wiki discussion thread: ChoiceScriptDev Forum Discussion

If you are currently developing your own ChoiceScript game you may however add (and edit) a Wiki page for it. Full instructions are provided on the WIP Games Hub.

More Admins Needed!

If you are currently developing your own CS game (or have already done so); if you have been active on the official ChoiceScript forums for quite a while; and if you can see several areas for possible improvements / better clarification (or perhaps simply have some ideas for new & useful articles that you'd like to explore), then we would be delighted to consider your application to join the Admin team. Please PM AlexCosarca, CJW or Vendetta on the ChoiceScript forums.
