So I’ve been working on this one WiP I’ve had in my head for quite some time and after exactly 5 revamps and rewrites, I’m officially 30% done with the writing the “final version” and will just have to convert it to ChoiceScript to have people demo it. However, I would like to see if I would even have a interested group of people for such a project, especially since I find it rather…unconventional in it’s style. Which might be bad because I’m the ultimate loser with ChoiceScript right now.
Anywho, the plot is pretty simple on the surface. You’re the resident shopkeep of a small shop in a big merchant city that lives with your Ghost-like Pet and childhood friend of a Healer. However, the city gets word of an Evil Being being reawoken and adventurers going wild trying to kill the being for fame and glory. You don’t want any part of this because your profits are finally in the green due to this humbug, that is, until you run into a bunch of crazy people who just turn poor PC’s life upside down.
Said nuts being a royal water mage, a chivalrous master thief, and stoic fighting mercenary. Now stuck in those three’s issues, PC, Pet and Healer have no choice but to accompany these three on their quest or risk being executed for treason. Big issue is…nothing in this realm is quite what it seems.
It’s pretty dry comedy, being mostly poking fun of things in typical DnD runs and MMORPGS as well as some anime references/jokes being made. Luckily, I’m fond of parodic deconstructions, so it will definitely be dark.
So before I close, I will say it’s different in style, since I’m seeing it as more of a visual novel-esque style, with six routes (Healer, FIghter, Mage, Thief, Pet and Solo) that all have a code that will lead to the “True End” as well as each route having a Good and Bad End. Also because I kinda have a bias towards having all the main characters guys or all the main characters girls due to my severe lack of expertise in ChoiceScript and uniqueness I guess?
Edit but not of 11/5/15 at like, midnight because what is productivity?
Anyway, I managed to get a short demo up to give everyone a taste after literally a month! The writing isn’t top tier, but I’ll fix it up after everything gets all organized and not as chaotic. Also, I’m like 70% sure this link will work, if it doesn’t please tell me!
*Also, due note. I cannot paragraph for the life of me and for some reason italicizing was being testy. So there will be some weird…run ons.
