Storytron was Chris Crawford’s attempt at commercializing his thoughts and ideas about Storytronic interactive storytelling back in the 2000's, built off his previous work with the Erasmatron. It didn't achieve commercial success.

After twenty-five years of working in this field Chris has decided to retire from Storytron work but he’s given us permission us to make key components of the code publicly available under an open source license at www.storytron.org.

If you're familiar with Chris' work and believe, like we do, that the open sourcing of Storytron is a new beginning for this seminal interactive storytelling tool, we could use your help.

Right now our expenses are small–we've got a domain, an email address, a free Github repository, and some source code (the first two will need to be renewed next year).

But we've got lots of ideas and plans:

  • New documentation and tutorials focused on the open source version of Storytron, combining the best of the old with the new stuff we've implemented
  • Tutorial videos geared towards the open source version of Storytron
  • A static portal site for all things Storytron
  • A web-based version of the Encounter Editor
  • A web-based version of SWAT (StoryWorld Authoring Toolkit)
  • Upgrades to our Slack account to handle unlimited searches, unlimited apps, voice/video calls, interactive screen sharing, and guests
  • Upgrades to our Github organization to handle unlimited public repositories, private repositories, and collaborators
  • Planning and logistics for Storytron-ocon 2022
  • And more...

Your support will help us figure out how to do these things and more.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. - Any questions, email us at [email protected].
