    Arrow is a free and open-source tool for designing game narrative and developing interactive fiction. It is released for Windows, and Linux, and can be build for Mac OS X.[1]


    Arrow focuses on being a no-code development platform, utilizing nodes and graphs to create storytelling hypertext. Users can place atomic narrative blocks (nodes) such as content, dialog, user-input, etc. on a grid and link them with graph connections to create both content and logic in the visual editor.[1]

    A scene system lets user to split projects into smaller chunks which then can be connected with jump nodes as a mean to create hyperlink between nodes.[4]

    Rather than producing an executable, Arrow supports the use of customized runtime environments and comes with a bundled official runtime developed in HTML, JavaScript and CSS. It also uses this runtime to export projects as playable HTML documents which can be run in Web browsers.[5]

    Arrow saves project data in JSON textual format with custom .arrow-project file extension, by default, but a binary save preference is also available.[6][7]

    The main software (editor) itself is developed on top of Godot (game engine) and the source code is mainly in GdScript.[1]
