For those that also fancy themselves a writer Episode encourages story submissions which can be released for others to play provided they meet some basic criteria (certain number of words, don’t focus on offensive content, etc).

Regardless of the story you choose gameplay is generally similar with players customising a character look and then going through a series of story points where a decision must be made. These decisions can then impact on the direction and ending of the story. The games feature some animation although are mostly text based.
