Write and share quick, interactive stories


Welcome to Diorama Club, a place to create and enjoy stories where you are in control.

Your decisions determine the outcome of the story!

Read a story.

Anyone can publish stories—even without an account! Once you've written a story, share it with the world.

Write a story.


How does it work?

It's easy. Just write your story in a special format that's super-easy to learn. You can even test out your story as you're writing it in the browser.

Here's an example:

You are standing in front of a house.
You wonder if it's possible to get in the house.
{ Crawl through the window
  You crawl through the window... 
  Oh no! You are far too fat to fit.
  You are now stuck!
}
{ Go through the front door
  You open the door... That was easy.
  You are now in the lobby.
  { Go up the stairs
    You walk up the stairs slowly.
    At the top of the stairs was some gold!
  }
  { Leave, this is scary
    You run out the door!
  }
}
The end.

You use special characters called braces ('{' and '}') to enclose a branch in your story.

The first line of your branch is the title of the branch. When you want the reader to make a decision, start creating a few sections using the braces. Each title of each branch will be shown to the reader.

When the reader makes her selection, the story continues inside the branch. You can enclose branches within other branches as much as you'd like.

Do I need to make an account?

Nope, not at all.

However, with an account, you'll be able to take credit for the stories you've written. Stories written without an account will get an anonymous byline.

In the future, you'll be able to favorite stories and do much more with an account.
