Character Update Released!

Hello storytellers!

This update we focused on creating not one, but two new sections in Campfire!

  • Character Arc View – Want to track how your characters change physically and emotionally over the course of the events in your story? The Character Arc View allows you to create custom attributes to view character arcs on graphs.
  • Relationship View – Perfect for creating family trees or relationship webs, utilize the Relationship View to visualize how characters feel about each other or interact.
  • Deleting Connectors – Added by popular demand, click on the lines between connectors in the Timeline and Relationship View to delete connections.
  • Various QOL Changes and Bug Fixes

This month we were able to launch the Campfire store on Zazzle, you can find it here: https://www.zazzle.com/campfire_technology. We’ve had an abundance of users reaching out to learn how they can support the development of Campfire further, and we thought this is the best way to do so. With shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, stickers, pens, coasters, and more, show off your love of Campfire!

We’ve been relentless in working to push out two brand new views to Campfire users this month. The last few months have been an incredible whirlwind for us as we try to implement the most requested features into Campfire. We ask that our Steam users please go to the Campfire store page and write a review. Here is a link to the store page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/965480/Campfire_Pro/. While we would love to see our rating on Steam improve, we also appreciate any criticisms you have to offer on how we can improve. We read every review and try to address all of the issues brought up, and we feel Campfire has made great strides over the past few months. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to write a review.

We hope you all are enjoying using Campfire. As always, we’d love to see what you create on social media if you’d like to share it with us on any of these sites:

About This Software

Complete your character design, plot manipulation, and worldbuilding all in one place. Designed to be a revolutionary tool for writers to plan out their stories, Campfire Pro is the writing software novelists and screenwriters need to go from the seed of an idea to a detailed plan that’s ready to be executed.

Character Development: Add characters with essential information like name, age, and personality traits. Then flesh out your characters by adding backstory, relationships, custom panels, and grouping characters together in their respective factions.​ Use the Character Arc View to track your character's physical and emotional changes in a graphical format. With the Relationship View, create family trees and complex relationship webs to have a visual representation of your characters' interactions.

Plot Design: Use the powerful Timeline tool to add scenes and other plot events. A straightforward drag-and-drop interface allows for easy reorganization and story manipulation.​

Worldbuilding: Campfire Pro is also a full-featured worldbuilding tool. Upload an unlimited number of maps, then add pins for each location. Flesh out your locations with history, culture, and politics. Campfire's Encyclopedia provides a place to store all other information. Use it to write out your magic systems, languages, cultures, objects, and more.

Campfire strives to be flexible and inspiring, providing a variety of features to achieve these goals. Each character has their own cork board, which holds an unlimited amount of custom panels and images. The Timeline is infinite, allowing writers to work with an endless canvas as they add a plethora of scenes and events. The World page allows users to upload any number of maps and pin locations onto them, creating a concrete, visual resource to geographically keep track of the story. Finally, Campfire’s seven themes provide different aesthetics to work within, keeping writers inspired regardless of genre. Fantasy novelists can expect a medieval-style writing experience, while Sci-Fi writers receive a visually high-tech version of Campfire. For writers who don’t want a dramatic theme, the Simple Light and Simple Dark themes allow for a plain, distraction-free writing experience.
