Chris Klimas has released Tweebox 1.0, which is a browser-based application used to create interactive stories.
Aside: You remember the good old Choose Your Own Adventures books. This is them for the web. I keep thinking that someone will do this for the big screen, and the audience votes at various times. Then people may pay to go to see the same movie more than once.
This is a fairly unique application in that because it reads and writes files on the user’s computer, it’s meant to be run locally. Nevertheless, it uses a lot of Ajax technology. It uses moo.fx’s old Ajax class to read files, browser-specific functions glommed from various places to write the files, and JSON saved to a cookie to encapsulate project data.
It requires IE6+ or a Mozilla-based browser, but the files it creates can be viewed in any modern browser.
