Happy Holidays & Development Break
In the spirit of this time of year, I want to thank you all again for being part of Story-Bat!
You have helped me creating a community out of this site. It isn’t just an idea in my head anymore but a real place I gladly check on every day! :-]
I wish you all the best for the next year and hope you are able to spend some restful moments with your loved ones.
I want to use this broadcast as an opportunity to announce my plans for the better first half of 2019: I am going to travel the world!
From mid-January to the beginning of May, I will be visiting Japan, New Zealand, Hawai’i and Canada. Naturally, I am going to use every opportunity I get there to promote Story-Bat. ;-)
What does this mean for the site?
Well, I have configured it in a way that allows me to access it from anywhere in the world. So if any problems arise, I should be able to handle them. However, the site accessibility was quite good without any big manual labour from my site. So, rest assured that Story-Bat will remain online.
The online downside to this is that I won’t post any new content myself. I hope you can reduce…
The „Story-Batorials“ encompass now 14 Videos with a total running time of 35:18 minutes.
Here is the link to the playlist on YouTube:
The playlist covers all the functionality of our site.
Naturally, you can always also check our FAQ (https://storybat.com/faq).

Bug Fixes 28th November 2018
This is probably the biggest push (after our release) that we have achieved on Story-Bat! I think everybody has earned their presents this year. =]
You can find detailed pictures about this bug report on our Discord Server!
General bugs / Desktop View
- “edited” to “Edited” (only SP) because it looks better,
- changed “Favorited” into “Favourited” because British English rules, and
- changed “steps” into “Steps” so it looks better for a title.
Story-Spotlight & Reminder for the Raffle
Apocalypse Town - Zombies!
With "Failed test subjects" released yesterday, "Apocalpyse Town - Zombies" has created its 11th Story-Block!
You can find out all about our running raffle in this post: https://storybat.com/node/130
Only a little bit more than a week left to participate! :-]
How to create a story on Story-Bat
I did it, mum! Longest tutorial video so far:
I hope this video gives you a good overview on how to create a new story on Story-Bat yourself.
Tutorial about our Story-Modes
The newest tutorial video is up!
In it, I talk about the Story-Modes we currently have. It is a good insight into one of the capabilities of Story-Bat.
You are welcome to share this video to show off our "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure"-Mode. ;-)
Our next video will be about creating a new story on the site. I have heard feedback from some people who were unsure as to how to correctly fill out a new Story-Page. You can look forward to that video next week!
I champion you all to tweet, post or in general talk about https://www.storybat.com/ using the #storybat hashtag on any of your social-media sites.
At the end of November, every Facebook-, Twitter- and Youtube-follower as well as active people in our Discord will enter a raffle to win some steam keys to Metro 2033, Strata, SUPERHOT and lots of other games!
So fly and good luck to you all!
Progress on Ad revenue
I want to thank those that have clicked on the ads on our homepage.
(Hint: You find them on some pages at the bottom of the right sidebar)
I already made 0.50 CHF in the last month and am probably going to receive about CHF 4.- for this month. This sounds like nothing or that I am mocking it but I am dead serious!
When I say every little bit counts then I mean it! Until we find people that are willing to support Story-Bat directly, those ad revenues help finance the server costs.
Even just those 50 cents mean that I have to pay 50 cents less out of my own pocket for the servers.
I wanted to make sure you know that your actions do have an impact!
Thanks again and happy writing~
Facebook Fanpage set up
In another push to get the word of Story-Bat out, we have created a Facebook-Fanpage:
If you are roaming FB or know people there who might be interested, please forward them this page.
