If you want a simpler way to make interactive fiction, Inkle is here for you! No coding necessary.
I have been using it for a while, it really puts focus on the story and choices above all else. You will have to make/find your own art assets but the freedom it gives you to make whatever kind of story you want easily makes up for that. If you’re naturally a descriptive writer, this is great for you!
@Episodians You might want to consider this.
