I know there was a previous topic on this but I’m starting a new one, since it was a bit old and nothing came of it.
Would anyone be interested in a Choicescript Jam? (Actually I’d be willing to extend it to interactive fiction since I know Twine might be easier for some people and I know learning choicescript in a short space of time is tough.)
Theme wise, would people be interested in some sort of diversity, or discrimination theme, or even flipping traditional game stereotypes?
Like how Choice of the Dragon does, with the very first game and the whole kidnapping Princesses or Princes. (Of course that’s a fake choice and you end up with a Princess regardless. We could totally change that!)
Or maybe even playing with the Damsel in Distress stereotype? (YES I WATCHED THOSE VIDEOS! But rather than discuss them, I’d much rather just see if I (or you, I bet you could) could do better.)
But really, as long as we get a theme that everbody’s interested in it shouldn’t matter.
It would have to be before November since NaNoWriMo is then and everybody gets busy. Would August work for people? (Or would September be better?)
If so what length of time would people like? A weekend? Slightly longer? In such a short space of time I know we’re likely just looking at a single scene/vignette, or the equivalent of a short story as opposed to a full length novel, however I absolutely love short stories. So I still think this could be doable.
And one of the great things about having something designed to be super-short is you can go absolutely wild with the choices and the consequences thereof. If all the branches are short, you don’t really need to worry about keeping them under control.
Would anyone be interested?
