A chatroom-style game of collaborative story-telling

A story that begins 'Once upon a time in a far-off land there was an...' with an input box for the next word, being worked on by users 'nlowery' and 'gwolfe'

I created StoryCircles as a final project for an online web development class when I was just starting to get serious about learning to program. It’s not particularly representative of the kinds of things I work on now or would like to in the future, but I still think it’s kind of neat for what it is and I’m keeping a page for it here to mark where I started (at least for now).

It’s an online version of the game where players take turns contributing one word to a collaborative story, like I used to play with my friends in high school.

The source code is available on GitHub here.

StoryCircles used to be available to demo on Heroku, but the services it used are not available for free anymore, and it doesn’t make sense for me to spend money to keep it up. Perhaps I’ll find a way to deploy it again in the future.
