Did you try from incognito?
Requires login to read it -> nope.
There is an “x” in the overlay to close it. You don’t have to log in.
I think that depends on how many articles from medium you’ve read that month. I opened the article at work and there was overlay that didn’t have “x” and required me to log in.
Edit: https://imgur.com/a/1kSEv9d <- just opened few other articles, I think the limit is something like four articles.
That’s unfortunate :(
(Nitpick: they mean Choose-your-own-adventure, not RPG.)
This seems like a really, really simplistic tutorial. Maybe useful for beginning programmers. If you actually want to create a full CYOA type game, the obvious tool to reach for is Twine.
nitpick to the nitpick:
I think the borders are not clearly defined. A very elaborate CYOA with certain features (inventory? stats? character creation? character classes? party system? combat?) can be a simple single player RPG.
You’re right for the scope of the thing described though.
Agreed. The “Sorcery!”games have crossed that line, despite being ports of old CYOA books.
InkleWriter is a more advanced CYOA tool that looks like it could support that kind of game.
