I want to tell interactive stories through my website and I need help! I'd like to hire you for two hours for a skype chat to discuss feasibility and then book more time with you to build thereafter. I am probably the world's worst coder however I think I have identified the correct tools needed to make the stories.
The overall goal of this project is to make a master code template, “Pixistory”, that allows me to create stories by simply dropping in new text, assets/files and changing simple variables then uploading to my website. This way I don’t have to ‘reinvent the wheel’ every time I want to tell a new story and it helps get me around the fact I am a bad coder. The stories will combine text, audio and illustrations - ideally these illustrations will be animated.
Fast, browser based, mobile and tablet optimised/responsive
Full width web page experience
Works in wordpress or easy to embed/link to a wordpress page
audio player that can play multiple sounds at once with different volumes and looping/single play options
Linking passages/segments like twine, could even utilise twine for scripts
font animation and custom fonts
For this to work it seems that [url removed, login to view] is the best route as games engine like unity, play canvas etc are overly complex/not fit for full width experiences. Pixi seems fast and robust.
What I would like to do is spend the two hours talking through with you the feasibility of the project on skype and going from there. Does that suit you? Kind regards,
