The language, ink, allows gamers to have their stories turned into basic-level, playable web pages
Spotted: Independent narrative game company inkle has created an open-source language for writing interactive fiction. The language, ink, encourages gamers to try it out and have their stories turned into basic-level, playable web pages.
The UK company’s latest release, Heaven’s Vault, is available on PS4 and Steam. The game follows archaeologist Aliya Elasra and her robot assistant Six. As players learn and translate hieroglyphics, their decisions affect the progress of the game. The scripting language remembers everything players say and do and incorporates those decisions and actions into what happens next.
As also illustrated with its two other games (Sorcery and Around the World in 80 Days), inkle creates interactive stories and apps in partnership with other organisations, all with the same high-quality interactive playability.
