Twine 2.2.0

Release Date: December 14, 2017


  • Passages can now be wide, tall, or just plain large.
  • Tags can be assigned colors, which show up as a vertical stripe on a passage in the story map. Every tag doesn't need to have a color.
  • You can now press the plus and minus keys to change the zoom level of the story map.
  • A Turkish localization has been added thanks to H. Utku Maden.
  • A number of extraneous libraries have been removed, so the overall file size of the app has been decreased, and it should load faster.
  • The built-in SugarCube story format has been updated to 2.21.0.
  • The built-in Harlowe story format has been updated to 2.1.0.


  • When you zoom in and out, Twine does a better job of keeping the window centered where you were looking.
  • The zoom level you last set for a story is now remembered by Twine.
  • If for some reason a story format can't be loaded, you can still delete it.
  • The desktop app is more tolerant of story files that it has trouble importing at startup -- it keeps going, so you at least can get to the story list.
  • If the desktop app does run into problems on startup, it shows the error message it should; previously, it would show a blank white page.
