The Written World

16 Jan

One thing I always end up spending a lot of my time on is browsing Kickstarter, especially if I’m feeling a bit flush at the time.On my last browse I came across what looks like an awesome new game. The Written World which is a collaborative multiplayer storytelling game, one that appears to be deeply rooted in old text adventures.
“At it’s heart it’s a game of Narrator versus Hero. The narrator controls the story; crafting a plot and presenting the Hero with encounters, and challenges. The Hero creates a character that she believes can make it through to the end. And when the story’s over it lives inside the Written World, for other people to read, re-use or play themselves.”
It looks like a great project and you should surely check it out at

    There is something fantastic about the concept of Kickstarter…I’ve found I’m spending a lot more time browsing projects (literary and film, mostly) as well as occasionally donating.

    Thanks for the recommendation; with a few hours to go, I hope they make it!
