For my current WIP, being written through NaNoWriMo as you read this (cross fingers) I am toying around with multi-media inclusions to tell parts of the story.

The genre is sometimes referred to as choice-based narratives, and in gaming terms, as an MCG (multiple choice game). Today I’m taking a precursory look at a couple of environments which allow a writer to create IF storylines.
