Yarn Spinner

Definition:

Yarn Spinner is a collection of open source writing tools, originally created by Secret Lab.

Background:

Yarn Spinner was originally created for Night in the Woods, but was later polished and released as an open source project. It is easy to use and provides built-in integration for use in Unity projects.

I have personally used Yarn Spinner in several prototypes, and it is a key part of my current project, including as the foundation for my Salience Engine. I have been quite happy with it, and highly recommend it for anyone looking to use branching narrative in a Unity project.

Further Reading:

Yarn Spinner has plenty of official resources for getting started and using the tools:
