Inklewriter is quite a fun little toy to play with. It's a very simple, intuitive tool for writing choose your own adventure stories, but also gives you the ability to use markers, counters and paragraph run-ons to far outstrip any of the CYOA or Give Yourself Goosebumps books you may …

First two episodes have been leaked. Go find them.
