Since focusing on Twine in the last year, Jezner has acquired a lot of visitors looking to create Twine inventory systems. In fact, my tutorial on creating a basic inventory is one of my most viewed articles.
And while this tutorial will expand on that tutorial in every way, this solution is just one solution in a sea of them. That’s the beauty of code. There is a multitude of solutions yet, that’s also a pain point. After all, of all the solutions, there are few that will fit your story like a well-tailored glove.
This is why it is important to understand the mechanics of any code-based system instead of blindly copying and pasting code. Doing so, may solve your immediate problem, but like introducing an invasive species. It may solve one problem, but cause a whole lot of other problems.
