The future of StoryNexus themes

February 26, 2013 · Fallen London

We’ve been introducing a lot of new features to StoryNexus over the past couple of months, and the interface has been slowly changing to fit it all in. It’s taken a lot of time to make sure each theme can properly accommodate all these changes, which is partly the reason that it’s been a while since we […]

And there’s still more StoryNexus content! On the StoryNexus front page, you’ll notice besides Winterstrike that we’re promoting Maelstrom… and BELOW. Maelstrom is one of two worlds from the amazingly prolific Lilylayer4 (the other is City of Phire). Maelstrom made it to well-deserved honourable-mention status in the World of the Season competition, and we thought […]

StoryNexus release: THE UNEXPECTED

October 24, 2012 · Failbetter

This one’s a quickie. We’ve fixed a bunch of StoryNexus bugs and done some optimisations; we’ve also added A Credits field for worlds, to give suitable props to you and/or your team Markdown editing to all worlds-level fields (login page and whatnot), so you can finally add formatting A BUY NEX button on branches and […]
