 +===== Story Formats =====
 +
 +Story formats are separate from the Twine editor, and determine the markup and code you use to write your stories. They allow you to add conditional logic, display effects, and other interactivity. ([[twine2:​how_to_choose_a_story_format|How do I decide which story format is right for me?]])

 +==== Other Formats ====
 +

 +  * [[https://​mcdemarco.net/​tools/​entwee/​|Entwee]] exports a Twine 2 project as a Twee source file.
 +  * [[http://​www.maximumverbosity.net/​twine/​Illume/​|Illume]] is an improved proofing format.
 +  * [[https://​github.com/​massivedanger/​protagonist|Protagonist]] is similar to Snowman, but has more functionality built-in.
 +  * [[https://​longwelwind.github.io/​adventures/​|Adventures]] is a RPG related story format based on Snowman 2.
 +  * **Jonah** and **Sugarcane** are formats packaged with Twine 1. Sugarcane has been superceded by SugarCube, while there as yet no successor to Jonah. The main difference between the two is that when a reader clicks a link in Jonah, new text appears underneath the existing text, instead of replacing it.
