I’ve spent a while getting all the systems I want in my ChoiceScript project working - stats, game end conditions like health, a way to get around the limitations of *gosub_scene… But I am having an issue in writing the actual story.
To sum up my story idea: You’re a magic trainee in the fantasyland equivilant of the ROTC. I have ideas aplenty for the plot, but I think I need more characters to carry it.
I realize that no good story is complete without some good side characters. Problem is, I’m having trouble thinking of characters. Currently the count is 3 ‘main’ NPCs and a few side characters. The energetic roommate, the stern drill instructor, the eager magic nerd, the quiet studious classmate. I feel like I need at least one more ‘main’ NPC to round out the player’s interactions with the world and its people. Do you guys agree or disagree?
On that note, does anyone think I should upload a ‘demo version’ of my WIP game? I would only want to show the sections that are fairly typo-free, but that’s about 5-10k words I would guess.
