After being a bystander in this awesome community for a few months, I figured it was time to stop hiding in the shadows and create my own game! I’ve inserted the link to the demo above, but if you’re interested in some sweet, sweet spoilers, then please - continue reading!
“A Strange Birthday” is a game that has a story. Alright, you want some more depth? It is a dramatic fantasy. Sounds fascinating, right?! The story includes several unfortunate events that occur on some poor bloke’s birthday; through Choice-Script, I am finally able to put both versions of my story together and let you determine which path you want to take through having Ash or Max (the protagonists) retell their individual perspective of the story.
Right now, the story includes:
- Library scenes featuring a crazy librarian!
- Two, very different perspectives that focus on the same, mystical day!
- The ability to choose the gender of both major characters!
- The first two sixths of the story (the exposition and rising actions) / 10,500 words!
- Or 5,000 per perspective!
- 193 Unique Choices - each affecting a portion of the game!
- An adventure in conversation!
- The ability to fall in love!
- A frightening werewolf!
By 11/11 (November 11), I am going to incorporate:
- The next update!
By 11/20 (November 20), I am going to:
- Finish the story
What I Need Help On:
I do my best to make sure the game is in working order. However, as many comments have pointed out, I’m not the best at playtesting my own games (ironically).
So, if you’d be so kind as to play my game, tell me what scenes are horribly boring, and demonstrate what logic is confusing, I would be overwhelmingly grateful.
You’re willing to help a fellow Choice-scripter, right? Pretty please with a cherry and whipped cream on top?
Well, That’s all I Can Think of … for now.
If you have any questions, or if you’d like to contact me, please feel free to comment on this thread or shoot me an email at EleckarGames@gmail.com. I love receiving feedback, and I’ll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible!
