Yes, but you won’t be able to get published and Spanish is not a practical language to use except you go for all characters being gender locked. So basically, It is not practical at all.

Yes, i need a gender locked with the main character yet created.
And why it’s not possible to publish?

Because it is an American company and they don’t know Spanish, so they can’t certify if you follow their rules or not. Also if doesn’t have a English language version is not commercial for an American company.

It is totally common sense, and is established in the rules to be published

Here you go CoG’s conditions for publishing:

Currently, official publishing isn’t possible with games that arne’t in English, but if you want to make it and have it on the forums, you can! You could make the games public but have a patreon, so people who like your work can support you. You can’t make the games Patreon exclusive, though, they need to be in the forum.

It’s completely doable to make them in Spanish, and you don’t have to genderlock anyone, it will only by a bit slower at the start but as you get practice you won’t notice it.

Like this:

*choice
  #Soy un chico.
    *set e "o"
    *goto contente
  #Soy una chica.
    *set e "a"
    *goto contente

*label contente
¡Estoy content${e}!

If you pick “Soy un chico” it will read “¡Estoy contento!” whereas if you choose “Soy una chica” you will get “¡Estoy contenta!” Choicescript is very user-friendly, and lets you do a lot of stuff. I think this one is the most efficient one (regarding time and effort) but another way is:

*choice
  #Soy un chico.
    *set chico true
    *goto contente
  #Soy una chica.
    *set chica true
    *goto contente

*label contente
*if chico
  ¡Estoy contento!
*if chica
  ¡Estoy contenta!

But it’s a lot slower. Or

*choice
  #Soy un chico.
    *set chico true
    *goto contente
  #Soy una chica.
    *set chica true
    *goto contente

*label contente
¡Estoy @{chico contento|contenta}!

Lots of ways to play around the language’s restrictions, so feel free to let your imagination run wild! :smile:

Ok, so it possibile to do but

  1. if i put in this forum all free

It’s possible to put the same game in another website that use for example patreon, right?

What most people do is make a thread for their WIP in the forum, and in the main post link their patreon page. I don’t know about hosting the game in other sites, but it would have to be the same version everywhere, you can’t put here a demo with, let’s say 5000 words here, and the full game in patreon.

I thiiiiiiiiiink it’s possible to have an update of difference between public-patreon demos (like version 2.1 and version 2.2 as long as that patreon demo became public eventually too) but don’t quote me on that one.

@emperorshin – You may not make money from any game you host/publish yourself, no matter where you put it.

I think you should do your research by going to the helpful link Lycros provided.

I’m closing this thread now.
