Creative Storytelling Tools

for interactive video stories and games

What can Stornaway.io do for me?

Creative teams in Entertainment, Business, Learning and Agencies use Stornaway.io to easily craft compelling interactive video stories that build powerful lasting relationships with their audiences.

Unlike linear video, Stornaway.io branching video stories drive engagement and educational outcomes by connecting directly with the audience to keep them watching and replaying.

Personalise viewer journeys, follow different interests, see things from another perspective, unlock secrets and see the consequences of different choices.

Where can I publish what I create in Stornaway.io?

Stornaway.io is flexible and open, so you can publish your stories to Stornaway’s amazing player, to your own site, to YouTube (currently in Beta) or to other compatible platforms and to applications like Powerpoint which support embeddable players.

Your own site
For a  fully-featured and custom-designed experience, you can publish to your own site using our powerful Stornaway player and streaming platform. Different streaming packages are available – see Pricing for more details.

YouTube
Make interactive video stories in Stornaway.io and publish them direct to YouTube with interactive links, to reach their huge global audience of 2 billion monthly users. Currently in a Private Beta period – contact us here if you’d like to join the Beta.

LMS (Learning Management Systems) 
Stornaway.io projects can be embedded on LMS pages, and included in the SCORM packages that LMS systems and eLearning authoring tools use to exchange data and track learners’ outcomes. We are working on further integrations with LMS standards – please get in touch if you’d like to know more.

Powerpoint
Take your presentations to another level by embedding Stornaway.io interactive video stories into Powerpoint slides, for streaming playback. Download Microsoft’s Web Viewer Add-in to embed web pages – and then just copy the link to your Stornaway project, to play the whole story within a slide, while online.

Unity and Unreal – for Mobile, Steam, Consoles, VR
We’re working on a Unity publishing tool that will let you take your projects into Unity and Unreal for publishing to any of the platforms they use – get in touch to find out more.

Compatible VOD platforms
Stornaway.io was designed as a universal authoring tool, and we’re working towards integrations with major VOD platforms. If you’re a producer looking to publish to a 3rd party platform, we can solve your storytelling and delivery problems – contact us for more details.
