Looking to advance your career in the video game industry? We've got some good news for you: The free annual Game Career Guide for 2015 is now available!

Anna Anthropy is a noted advocate for putting the tools of game creation in everybody's hands, and that's just what Twine does: It's a simple engine for creating text-based games. In an article from the 2015 Game Career Guide, she explains how to get your first Twine project off the ground.

It has distinct advantages, she writes: "Twine is free, text-only, and requires no programming. It's a very easy-to-use platform for creating hypertext games and stories. Plus, it's easy to distribute; Finished games are published as HTML files, which can then be uploaded to a site like www.philome.la. As a bonus, Twine games are more player-accessible than most, since they'rep layed with just the mouse and generally require no dexterity."
