What game creation software is currently available that is suited to building games (or levels/mods) with a focus on branching narratives and dialogue
, of the sort found in role-playing games like Mass Effect?

To put it another way, when Chris Avellone says here
that "the best way to break in [to narrative design for games] is to actually write for games, even if it's for free and as a hobby. There are plenty of mods and game editors out there that you should be able to work on or contribute to..." - what mods and game editors is he talking about?
I'm a little out of date on games and editors so would appreciate any help. I'm a programmer but am ideally not looking for software in which the programming would be a major focus - I want to focus on the writing/dialogue/level design. Thanks everyone.
