The  World’s Only Interactive Story Engine

The heart of Dramatica software is its patented story engine that keeps track of every choice you make for your story, cross references their collective dramatic impact and alerts you to any holes or inconsistencies in  your structure.  Your story will be solid every step of the way through development.

Makes Suggestions To Improve Your Structure

Dramatica’s story engine not only points our holes and inconsistencies, but also provides suggestions for the best kinds of topics and story points to fill and fix them.  You’ll always know what to do to solve your story problems.

Develops Detailed and Structurally Sound Characters

Dramatica’s Build Characters tool enables you to select from a palate  of traits and elements and assemble them into structurally sound characters who have a real purpose in your story.  You can built anything from archetypes to complex characters to single-purpose characters and stereotypes.  You’ll always know who your characters are and why they are there.

Builds Your Plot in Signposts and Journeys

Dramatica gives your plot a complete timeline, marked out in signposts (key junctures) and journeys (the path by which those junctures are reached.  In the Plot Progression area, you’ll see how your characters’ arcs interact with the flow of your plot so each drives, affects and is affected by the other, integrating the human and logistic aspects of your story.  You’ll always know what happens in Act 2!

Helps With Inspiration, Development, Exposition and Storytelling

Dramatica’s Brainstorming section will help you choose a structure from over 30,000 available!  You can then tailor each to your particular story with Dramatica ensuring you maintain a solid structure.  Dramatica will suggest characters for your story, with slider controls to determine the balance of traits and attributes.  Get Step by Step guidance with the StoryGuide, which takes you point by point through the entire development process.  Every story point provides examples from well-known novels, stage plays and movies that share your dramatics.  Build your story chapter by chapter or scene by scene with built-in templates for novels and screenplays.
