Arcweave overview

Arcweave in a nutshell

Arcweave is a cloud application for designing and prototyping games on your browser.

You design your game's story and logic as diagrams on multiple boards, connecting nodes (called elements) and conditions (called branches). ฮคhen, you can run your game's prototype on play mode.

Arcweave aims at bridging the distance between the writer and the developer. It implements logic, while staying as much writer-friendly as possible.

Having its own play mode as well as various exporting options, Arcweave offers a tool for creating interactive fiction and prototyping larger-scale projects.

Finally, it allows real-time collaboration for teams of two or more.
