Authoring Simulation Genres: Branching Stories

One well-understood simulation genre is branching stories.

In branching stories, students make multiple-choice decisions along an ongoing sequence of events around what to say to another person in a given situation. The decisions impact the evolution of the story, ultimately terminating in either successful or unsuccessful outcomes.
Their ease of use, ease of deployment, and content style make them highly appropriate for entry-level salespeople, call center representatives, freshmen, customer-facing retail positions, and entry-level managers. Any high-turnover position should be trained, although not exclusively, using branching stories. Companies like WILL Interactive have advanced the genre to handle more moral and complex situations, making them also appropriate for higher-level employees as well.

One tool kit is:

You can also use PowerPoint, although it is tricky.

Do people know of other branching story toolkits?

Hi!
I've been so grateful for your explanations about Branching Stories in typical and Simulation for Future Learning in general. Without your book & site I'd be in much more trouble trying to analyse the Web-SP program, as a part of course in Simulated Learning Environment, at the IT University of Gothenburg. (which I’m trying to pass) Web-Sp (Web-based Simulation of Patients) is my choice of examination task because it was the closest I could get to PE and health, which is my professional area. I’d like to know more about simulation “predicting future health” and/or “unfair effects of physical activity and training” … do you, anyone know? I know of “the mirror of future Health”, developed in France – but it’s really complex and include cameras and IT artefact which are only working in lab environment. Anyway, thanks for your eye-opener – in my age you need these kinds of “kicks”. Eva Fors, Stockholm University College of Physical Education and Health, www.gih.se
