Twine is an excellent tool for creating branching narratives. These narratives can be as simple as choice-based narratives a la Choose Your Own Adventure books or deep interactive media-based experiences.

This comprehensive tutorial series aims to teach you Twine from the ground up. The series assumes you have no Twine experience or even coding experience. Follow along at your leisure.

While you can jump around, the tutorials are meant to be followed in sequential order.

Note: Since I started this tutorial series, Twine had a major user interface upgrade. I am in the process of updating all the screenshots. That said – the code still works fine.
