My name is Taylor and I made Wrdie.
Let me start by saying thank you for checking us out!
I've been working on Wrdie and its engine for more than 3 years now so it's very exciting for me to be able to finally share it with you.
Wrdie came from my passion for creating interactive things and my desire to share those things with others.
The technology grew from an online text adventure that I was writing. After I'd finished the expansive prologue, I played what I had made and quickly came to the conclusion that I'm a better programmer than I am a writer.
So I started with the engine I already had, added the ability for multiple users to make stories, created a drag and drop editor, built a site out of it, gave it a name, and Wrdie is the result.
But now that it's launched, my work is far from over.
I'm well aware of Wrdie's current deficiencies and limitations, and I'm very interested in hearing your feedback as well. As you read this, I'm already at work making upgrades.
Here's a peek:
So if you haven't noticed yet, I'm in this for the long haul.
Wrdie faces a major chicken-and-egg problem: it needs stories to attract readers, and it needs readers to attract authors. My solution is to start by focusing on the authors.
I want to make Wrdie the best interactive story platform on the planet and I need your help to do it.
I would love it if you played a story .
And it would be really cool if you checked out the story editor for yourself.
I made a getting started tutorial that you can follow to learn the basics of a Wrdie story.
Also, don't forget that there is a twitter feed to follow and a facebook page to like. They both should help keep you up to date with the improvements that I make. I also made a discord channel that you can join to get help and chat with me and others in the Wrdie community.
If you have any good ideas for improvements or need to rant about something that's missing, check out the feature voting and suggestion page.
Or even better, my email inbox is always open at [email protected].
Again, thank you so much for visiting and I hope you like what you find.
Sending you peace and love,
