    As the complexity of interactive entertainment grows, Outline 4D and Dramatica could very easily become a necessary tool for any game designer. Both packages allow the game designer to flesh out detailed game concepts, characters and puzzles at the start of a project...

    On the surface, Outline 4D is an outlining program, but that's where it begins. It is an electronic index card system, and it is a timeline, and it is a brainstorming device, and it is just about the most versatile and creativity enhancing program I have encountered.

    Words of Praise from more Outline 4D Users

    "As far as I'm concerned, the addition of the Outline Mode has just catapulted Outline 4D into the stratosphere."

    "I love Outline 4D. The Outline mode has boosted an already highflying program right into orbit. The program's flexibility, abundance of modifiable tools, and aesthetic appeal allows my imagination, working methods, and idiosyncrasies to blossom in an environment truly supportive of the creative act. I've developed a method of working that involves just about all of Outline 4D's tools, and I wonder how I ever structured anything before I had access to Outline 4D's layout, tracking, and text-manipulation tools."

    "My compliments to the excellent work you've done on version 2 of Outline 4D. It's a huge improvement, both in features and in ease of use. I like the fact that it'll now automatically estimate running times for scenes. A very smart and flexible program."

    "Outline 4D 2.0, with its Outline view and new tools, has turned my head around. Initial story planning and structuring will always be one of Outline 4D's great strengths, but now there is more, much more, that can be accomplished with it. Because the complete text of a story can be laid out vertically in Outline view, the enticement to keep imputing text past the planning stage is enormous. And with the Timeline view always available, restructuring of scenes, even late in the writing process, can still be accomplished with ease. I now see myself taking novel length works all the way through to the last draft with Outline 4D, only transferring the text to a word processor for formatting and the final polish."

    "One thing I absolutely love is the ability to switch easily from showing Titles Only to Titles and Content to Content Only. I can use Titles Only to work on the story structure then use Content Only to actually write my story."

    "In general, the outline view promises to be extremely useful. It seems like magic to be able to enter or edit something in the outline and have it show up in the timeline mode -- and vice versa."

    Outline 4D's Outline window provides a familiar word processor interface that lets you write in a familiar top-to-bottom manner, similar to other outliners. Each bullet-point in an outline is called an Event. Add and remove events, edit them, promote or demote them (change their indent in the outline), move them around the outline, and selectively hide or show portions of the outline. Get to know the basic features and youíll be an outlining pro. It's easy. View additional
