Why are you asking me that?

Why do you want to know?

What's that got to do with you?

Well, I'm a hat designer! I've never felt so creatively fulfilled as when I'm designing a hat.

The shape of someone's face, their colouring, their skin texture against the fabric... It's all so important for finding the right hat.

Don't get me wrong, a <hat_choice> would look great on you... but I think we can do better.

Testimonials

“One of the most exciting things about working with Charisma is that there’s always more functionality to discover: you can build a really engaging interactive story with just a basic understanding of character and player nodes, but as you become more confident working with subplots, memories and gates, more intricate and nuanced possibilities are opened up.”

Rachel Hodge

“Learning to write on Charisma is both easy and so much fun. Character and player nodes allow you to write as you might for a script, while the linking functions transform how you think about the relationship between linear, digressive and cyclical narratives. I feel I have only just scratched the surface of its potential!”

Felicity Brown
