Download “Love Classic” Theme

Love Classic is a theme / base .tws files for making visual novels with Twine. It contains a few easy-to-use macros which take care of the heavy HTML & CSS lifting. Eventually this will be moved to its own page but, for now, see instructions in the above presentation (mid-way through).
