My name is Pieter, and I’m looking for some people to test out my first Choice Script game, Caves & Dinosaurs! I am a little bit of a noob, and I hope I did everything correctly.
I used the ChoiceScript IDE and ran a lot of tests until it didn’t seem to break anymore. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t there hiding in wait.
This game is a little different than most of the other awesome Choice Script games on here–mainly because Caves & Dinosaurs is based on a choose your own adventure game print book that I wrote.
I started this project as a quick add-on for people who backed my KILL ALL PLAYERS TPK boardgame on Kickstarter. What was initially intended to be a <100 pages CYOA pocket book, quickly turned into >500 pages, with 70+ endings and 50 ways to die. If I hadn’t pumped the breaks, it might have ended up twice as long. While the print version will be for sale, I was hoping to host the Choice Script version on this site as the only digital version.
This game is based on my TPK boardgame KILL ALL PLAYERS. In K.A.P. you (as a DM) are competing against other DM players in order to see who can kill their party first. You can set traps, buff skill tests, curse items, and spawn some over-powered monsters.
Unlike the KILL ALL PLAYERS boardgame, the Caves & Dinosaurs story takes place from the perspective of the players who don’t know they’re actually inside a game.
If you like D&D or LitRPG, you will love this interactive experience.
There were many limitations, due to being confined to my book’s formatting. In the future, I plan on making a different full-fledged Choice Script game. This one, however, is geared towards multiple playthroughs and has very limited character creation. Some endings are really quick, while others are quite lengthy. Each run through will act as a little puzzle piece to glean more details into the broader picture and plot.
I’m not looking for low-level feedback (grammar, word choice etc.). Nor am I looking for plot or character development suggestions.
Mainly I’m looking for typos, bugs, broken scenes, and scenes that don’t match up with each other. If you find any problems, you can post it here or email me.
Here is the OPEN beta link:
Thanks for your help!
All the best,
