Yarn Spinner


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


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 used it as a foundation for my Salience Engine. I have since discontinued using it in favor of another branching narrative tool (Ink), though mostly for personal reasons.

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