    Twine, a tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories

    I think Articy is a bit of overkill for most people; it can be kind of clunky. I find Twine is usually enough for most games.

  • Arrow

    JSON is just a text file with some specific conventions to be easily readable by other programs. Though, I took a look at the Inky's JSON export, and it's kinda convoluted. In your case Arrow might be a better fit. You can also consult with your programmer, since he'll be the person implementing your dialogue in game.

  • SurveyJS

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc. PHP, ASP.NET Core, and Node.js.
