Adding a Simple Choice

To create a simple choice, you must have dialogue to start it off, either the narrator or one of your characters can say something.

This is how a simple 3-option choice looks like:

NARRATOR

What is your favorite color?

choice

"Blue" {

} "Green" {

} "Red" {

}

  • To set a choice, you have to add the word "choice".

  • Your first option will be right after the word choice, on the same line or on the very next line.

Example: 

choice "Option here" {

or

choice

"Option here" {

Do not skip an entire line between choice and the first option (example below) or you will get an error message:

choice

"Option here" {

  • All option names must be inside of quotation marks.

  • To begin the option, add a starting curly bracket { immediately after on the same line. 

  • To end the option, add an ending bracket } on a new and separate line.

  • The second option (and third and so on) will need to be on the same line as the last end bracket or on the very next line.

} "Option 2 here" {

or

}

"Option 2 here" {

Do not skip an entire line between the end brackert and the next option (example below) or you will get an error message:

}

"Option 2 here" {

  • You must always remember that every starting bracket needs to have a matching end bracket! Always close off your choices with an end bracket, otherwise you will get an error message about a missing bracket.

  • The outcome of the option will go inside of the brackets.

Here is an example full choice:
