I started work on a very simple Interactive Fiction engine (think Twine but with way fewer features) that runs as a Gemini server.
Right now it is configured with a relatively-simple YAML file and the linked example just shows essentially a tour of my house. Describe a room, follow a link to move to another room.
Already this could be used to create simple branching (or linear) narratives, but I’m planning to add the ability to create and track simple conditions to create slightly-more-complex stories.
Anyway, is this something other folks would like to try out? I plan to throw it up on gitlab or sourcehut or something, but I’m wondering what the interest would be for like providing updates to the community and stuff.
So let me know what you think!
Gemini is a new internet protocol which:
Is heavier than gopher Is lighter than the web Will not replace either Strives for maximum power to weight ratio Takes user privacy very seriously
