Tales of Mobile Entertainment

Tales of Mobile Entertainment


Tales of Mobile Entertainment (ToME) is a story engine that is part game, part creativity exercise. You bring the setting and Protagonist to the story: the application adds qualities and elements as plot “hooks”. Using a set of Controls, you ask question about what happens next, moving the story forward. ToME provides answers, introduces unexpected Complications, and keeps a Log of the events as they're written. Sessions are saved internally; you can export any particularly interesting session as a plain text file.

ToME was inspired by authors who over the years have combined writing and gaming. Philip K. Dick threw the I Ching to write “The Man in the High Castle”. The long-running Wild Cards series edited by George R.R. Martin, and R.A. Salvatore's series, are among the many books influenced by role-playing games. ToME also owes a nod to the many creative, independent game developers of The Forge, Evil Hat Games' FATE System, Word Mill Games' Mythic RPG, The Engle Matrix Game and Risus.

Great app If you're familiar with Mythic it's a breeze to jump in. The only recommendation I have is to make the text fields editable. Currently, if you tap the field you get a blank box, so if you've already put a sentence in, you have to re-type it. Minor inconvenience, but still inconvenient.
