Conclusions, endings, every story has one and Choice Games have several, but just where exactly does one draw line on just how many there are or how different they are from each other? Those were the questions on my mind earlier today as I was working through the storyboard of my latest Choice Game. The endings to which I thought I’d done pretty good. That was until I’d got them all together and read them back to back.
Four distinct Categories emerged.
I’m going to have to go through again and create some “happier” endings. Though, considering that I’ve just watched 3 hours of reenacted American (US) child abuse, read several articles and polls on the subject. All of which has tarnished my soul forever and spoiled my view of California and the United States as a whole, not that my view on the latter was particularly high anyways, but I did kind of put the former on a fairly high pedestal.
So what are peoples thoughts on endings? How many should a good Choice Game have, how varied should they be and in general what kind of endings do you like to see?
