Creating a CYOA game in ADRIFT 4

Post by Blinddrifter »

Hi.
How does one go about making a choose-your-own-adventure style game in ADRIFT 4.0?

Maybe he prefers it to Adrift 5.

To create a CYOA style game in Adrift 4, the easiest way is to have a separate room for each section and handle movement back and forth between the rooms / sections via tasks. There are several CYOA games on the site right now (a few of mine included) which do this kind of thing so you should probably open up a few of them to see how it works.

Because ADRIFT 5 is not accessible with screen readers.

This was the problem Mayana had as well when I introduced her to the program. I can't remember the exact issues she had, but switching to v4 resolved most of them.
