    What makes Story Architect unique is tools inside the app. It allows you to work on unlimited amount of episodes within one project as well as to include various types of text in the project (e.g. screenplay, plain text, audio drama, etc.). You can also store a pack of drafts and all the additional material in one place. There's no second app where you can build maps and profiles of relationships, locations and worlds so smoothly and with so many details.

  5. What's the story behind Story Architect (STARC)?

    In 2013, programmer Dimka Novikov received a proposal to create film shoot planning software, sparking the idea for Kit Scenarist. By 2014, the first version was launched, capable of formatting scripts to international standards. English localizations arrived in 2016, marking the start of Kit Scenarist's global journey. In 2018, attempts to monetize through crowdfunding failed, also revealing architectural limitations.

    In 2019, Dimka returned with a plan for a new software, leading to the birth of the Story Architect (or simply STARC). Released in 2021, STARC integrated six years of Kit Scenarist experience with significant technical improvements. By 2023, Kit Scenarist support ceased, and users transitioned to STARC. Today, STARC is a full-fledged program for authors, offering various subscription levels with advanced features.

    Hi! You can try out software named Story Architect. It allows you to filter index cards by text or tags, so you can just ask it to filter cards via character name.
