Hello community, unfortunately, I am assuming none of you have ever played any of my games, unless you were here 2 years ago and managed to wiggle your way into my Cercia beta test before I scrapped it and had the thread hidden. Sadly, I have yet to publish anything, but I aim to change that. World building and plot development have always been two of my favorite things to do, so much so that I suffer from the dilemma of wanting to move on to my next project before I’ve finished my current one. My goal though, is to finally get a game finished and released so that I can establish myself. So far I have managed to remain steadfast in writing my current project, which I have not announced yet. I try to keep my work on the dl because I put a lot of thought and effort into making them unique and, in the event I don’t finish writing it, I don’t wan’t the ideas out there for others to steal. My current project is at 17,000 words and is about 2/5 complete. With this project I am aiming for randomization and generation to improve replayability (hence my recent post about the *rand command). I hope none of you allow me to abandon this project until its finished. But while I work on this one I would also like to start thinking about the plot of my next story and I have come up with some ideas.
I have come up with 4 potential stories that I could write and I would like community feedback on them and help me decide which to develop further.
Eidetic: PC is an a young mercenary assassin set in the future, probably around a realistic 2200 CE, and is someone gifted with a photographic memory known as an Eidetic. Player suddenly finds themself in over their head and must use wits to survive. (Maybe some interactive ways to use the stat screen to house memories or something.)
Steampunk meets magic. The role of the PC could vary depending on the plot, but I think it would be really fun and interesting to see how a steampunk-esk city could blend with magic. Maybe the city uses technology to amplify magic and the player chooses either for or against it. Plot ideas are welcome.
Lyserius Part I: This idea comes from my original Cercia. Set on the fantasy continent of Cercia, the PC is a mercenary who follows the “Chosen One” on his quest to defeat the god who created the world.
Lyserius Part II: In the sequel the PC, different person from Part I, must defeat the antagonist who seeks to harness the power of (secret character you’re not allowed to know) to resurrect his deceased lover. (I’m thinking of a pretty rad plot twist.)
- Steampunk & Magic
- Lyserius Part I
- Lyserius Part II
The poll is anonymous because I know some people don’t like their names showing up, but I highly encourage feedback. Ideas are ALWAYS welcome, bad ideas can lead to good ideas. What do you like and dislike about these ideas? And feel free to message me to make sure I’m still writing.
