Infomancer Forge is a tool for data design and capture. You decide how data should be shaped and how it connects. Infomancer Forge gives you a typical grid way to manage your data but also a visual map of data that makes it easier to see how your pieces of data tie together into a map.
We found a need ourselves when building games to have amore visual way to look at the data. From designing story flows and dialog to levels with encounters and monsters. It’s just so much easier when you can visualize how everything connects and interacts then to have to imagine it all in a spread sheet.
