In the last few weeks I’ve been reading up on what kind of IF possibilities the Kindle opens up. The short answer is, “anything” – well, anything without too much animation. The Kindle is a computer like any other. But the more app your thing becomes, the less e-booky it feels. So what can the lowest-tech approach achieve?
I’m working on tidying up the tool I’ve written for making Undum game-files from a simple text format.
While I get that sorted, I thought I’d publish the single most useful other Undum thing I’ve got, which is an extra function to avoid writing in HTML. Following I7’s lead, I’ve called it “say”, rather than the Undum default, which is “write”.
I’ve been doing some more work with Undum (which I’m starting to link to off this blog so frequently I should really make a category tag for it. In fact, I will).
