Hello guys! I created recently this account but was here before that. Reading all the amazing stories, a goal crept into me, to create one too. I think, i may be a little jealous of developers since they make the readers go mad in some cases! (In a good way) They create engaging and captivating stories, with vast backround and everything. It makes you drown in all of it and hope that it will never end.
So, long story short, i started too. Have written 10 pages of content with small choices here and there. But as far as i get, i am loosing it.
Should i write everything in choicescript? Should i write in doc and include every option with a describing? Should i just write the story how i want it to be and after, include the choices?
I thought it was easy… hell it was not, and i kinda blocked. And then, there is also small choices that will impact everything and it is sooo overwhelming!
Also, i want to include punishment system. Like lost heir did. But i dont know what would make the player wanna sucrifice this or the other or better, regret the bad choice…
It is so easy when you think of it, but when you jump in, there is sooo much! Are then also any tips for starters like me? Maybe keep notes or something?
