About

Welcome to GrinningC.at, home of the Penpal Engine—a “choose your adventure” story system.

Penpal is a tool I developed to give players nearly infinite choice in the context of a narrative, similar to a table-top role-playing game.

Through the medium of digital “post cards”, you interact with the story incrementally. Messages take time to go back and forth, like physical snail mail. How you progress through the story and what paths and decisions you make are entirely up to you.

Pay attention to the details. Use your imagination to solve problems. No two experiences will be exactly the same.

The game is free, though there may be limited seats to play. If you enjoy it, support me at my ko-fi.
