Other Comments

This seems to be a pretty good AI Dungeon 2 alternative, the games are very similar. In fact in some cases this game's AI seems to be less random and has a better grasp of storytelling at times. Unlike AI Dungeon however, the AI in this game doesn't seem to accept every command as some result in a message saying that it's confused and to try something else.

Hey all. I thought I might add my own advice from my experience playing the game that I found helpful to me in overcoming some obstacles.
Tips and Tricks: The Infinite Story

Tip 1: Doing and Saying
On your screen, you should see a button that by default says "Do". Tapping this will change it to "Say". If you want to say something, change to "Say" and write what you want to say. If you want to do something, by default start your actions with a verb. But if you want something to happen, someone to do something, etc.—basically actions that anything or anyone other than you does—you don't have to start with a verb. For example:
Say you're going along in your story, and you want someone to pull up in a black sedan and offer you a ride. You are totally able to first switch to Do, then write, "A person in a black sedan pulls up beside me and offers a ride." (Remember what mom taught you about accepting rides from strangers.

Tip 2: Training the AI

At some point in your story, the AI will get confused and make something happen that you don't want to happen. Most of the time you create a story, it will say, "Hint: Rollback to any point in the story by long pressing the text." So, if something happens following something you do or say that doesn't fall in line with the story flow at all, simply long press on the text before your action or words and redo them until the AI gets it right. This is your story. You are ultimately in control.

Most importantly, have fun. Be flexible. If the AI wants to go somewhere that doesn't completely confuse everything, let it happen and have fun with it!

If only they can sort out their accessibility issues. Since this is basically a spin-off, I can't see Many improvements in the future. The developer of Ai dungeon contacted me Regarding the access ability issues, so I'm not sure how long we'll have to wait to see those issues addressed, if at all.
