This is a very powerful tool if you at all interested in video game story writing. You can create branching dialogue paths with ease, or if you want a script version of the story, this can do this as well. I would recommend getting the "DLC" for this software for the extra utilities that this brings. For as high of level of program as this is, and as much as you get, $100 is really not a bad price tag for a professional level design tool.

This is a very interresting piece of software for any game developer of any sort and level of professionalism.
Beyond its clear usefulness for indy and professional realm, I would also highly recommend this software to all game design and game programmer schools to develop more constructive and critically thought games and that is for all domain of a video game, mechanics, designs, and more to achieve and emphasize on product fulfilement and quality.

The software is fully functional, it requires "some" learning curve but nothing from outer space. price is a bit steep to be honest, but this software could very quickly become a game development standard tool worldwide if people at Articydraft keep bringing more functionality and FLEXIBILITY that could and would supplant traditional GDD and TDD platforms and methods.
On my side and from the very little experience I have with this software, I can say with confidence I am more than ready to give Word, excel, or others like Open Office a kiss of goodbye, kick those out as Articydraft can make it happen.
I am moving a GDD and TDD onto a Articydraft as we speak.

Articy:Draft is a must have product for anyone interested in game design. Make no mistake; there is a learning curve to this tool as with any professional grade software. Once you've learned it, the productivity you'll gain will more than make up the initial learning time. I used the team version of Articy:Draft 2.1 in my Game World Creation class, and what it enabled the class to create is beyond anything I was expecting.

Pros:
It can handle just about any game design task you can throw at it. Complex branching dialogs? Easy. Detailed NPCs with complex relationships? No problem. Have a massive game world with many areas interconnecting? Have at it. And once you're all done, hit the export button and get a nice XML file with all your text content ready for use in your game engine of choice.

Cons:
* Price. You get what you pay for, but you will pay for it. Regardless of how awesome it is, $200 is a steep price to pay if you're doing this as a hobby. Knock that up to $300 if you want to go commercial.
* Export Formats. While I did list this in the Pro section, it's also a con as well. The docx export is difficult to read, almost to the point of being useless as a general purpose document. The xml format will take some serious digging through and studying to fully understand how Articy:Draft is linking things together. The product could really use some polish on this aspect.
* No resizing of areas. When you draw a zone in a location, there's no resizing it, other than grabbing it point by point and moving them around. This was a major source of headaches in my class as many groups discovered they had scale problems and needed to resize things. Much gnashing of teeth was done that day.

Bottom Line:
If you're serious about game design, buy this software. You will not regret it.
