I have decided to write an interactive story using ChoiceScript, this will be my first time writing a book and I doubt I could do it well as I lack the vocabulary and stuff to write a good one but still it’s all for fun so it doesn’t matter if the book doesn’t turn out great but I’ll surely try my best.
Plot - “Survival in an apocalyptic world, where basic type of infected are similar to “zombies” while there are different types of mutated zombies with different abilities”.
I know I should be more creative with the idea and it is a cliche or whatever but for my first book I’d rather choose to write about this.
First of all, the thing that concerns me is if people are playing a survival interactive game then do they care much about the cause of outbreak ? Because I was not sure if I even have to think much about a justifiable reason or just give a simple reason and make the game more about an experience in this world rather than the a satisfying cause of out-break.
Secondly, I see how in most movies/books/games of similar genre, the electronic devices and stuff like cellphones don’t work (can work but no signal) and there is no electricity. But when I get into the shoes of a writer I can’t understand if this all needs a good scientific explanation, or can it just stop working just like that and no explanation for now and later some weak explanation will be given for everything and that’s it ?
If it was an actual novel or movie then I understand it would require a good explanation for everything but in an interactive survival book is it really necessary ?
Also, it could really help if you guys could link me to similar games hosted here.
