About Troll-Me-A-Story

Troll-Me-A-Story is an experiment to see how story telling across social media would play out. Also the need for an actual free game with no strings attached was the way to go. The only data that is collected is of course first and last name, age, email, facebook id and twitter id which will not be sold to anyone. Also just basic interactions with the site are analyzed to see where and how the game is interacted from various users.

You don't need to join to contribute to the story

The idea of needing to sign up just to help of friend was always lame. Seriously... it really was lame. Thus, the reason why here on Troll-Me-A-Story you do not need to sign up to help or add to your friends story. The only thing you will not get is your own storyline. Only those who actually join can start their own storylines or adventures.

How to Play

You're probably going "Okay, that's nice and all but really how do I play this game? Or HOW can I add to my friend's story?"

Which is fine. There are a few game out there that are similar to Troll-Me-A-Story such as Twine or even your run of the mill command line text adventures. Troll-Me-A-Story takes those concepts and adds a visual layer to the story as well as helpful guided steps to get you started.
