This is either of interest or of historical interest: https://github.com/storytron/swat

Are there any games available to play that have been developed in this system?

I hope somebody's working on a Storytron "Cloak of Darkness" as we speak!

Java! Eww! seriously though, I don't know why this system even exists IMHO. Crawford was a narrative genius, but his systems have always seemed too complex and unorthodox for their own good.

Can't believe I missed this. I am extremely happy that the source code was finally released. I've been itching to take another crack at Storytron since the shutdown.

Not that I'm aware of, which I gather was a major part of why it entered the "medically induced coma" that it was in.
