iStory - interactive fiction and text adventure
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
iStory is a new spin on interactive fiction and storytelling. You'll love being able to choose your own path each and every time you play through.
But that's not all!
iStory includes StoryScript, which takes the interactive story telling genre to the next level.
Random events, variable tracking, and even entire text games are possible!
I have created 4 sample adventures to show what iStory is capable of:
*Mission To The Moon
*Cross The River
*Magic Prediction Ball
To create an iStory, use iStory to register your iPhone or iPod Touch. Then, you can create and play iStories on the iStory web site.
Once your iStory is created, You'll be able to play it on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
You can also invite your friends to help author your iStory and create truly collaborative content!
Special thanks to Julius Willis for the great logo.

Good Idea, Needs Better Community
iStory is really good idea for people that get into the whole idea of "choosing your own adventure" games.
Although you can't actually make istories right from the app itself, the online story maker interface is quite easy to use and gets the job done.
The istory community, however, is lacking. It would be nice to be able to see and view comments of what people say so that story devs can improve their stories. So far I've created a few istories including iVacation, Foxdale Ghost, Late, and just recently submitted, Studio 5.
Overall, iStory is a good app for making your own adventures, mostly since the user interface is easy to use without going through the complicated codes.
Come on, you know everyone loves choose your own adventure games! I took a chance on this app and it's really suprisingly fun! More people need to contribute though. Just like those books I read and loved when I was nine years old. Thanks to the dev for coming up with such a great idea!
One big problem, I can only see about 15 stories, is that all there is, or are there more or something?
