Hello, I’m a big fan of the choose your own adventure genre, and have been since I was a kid. I still have my Batman Choose Your Own Adventure books, Young Indiana Jones one, and a few D&D Choose Your Own Adventure books. When I found Choice of Games and the Choose Your Own Adventure games offered here I was thrilled. It’s like playing a choose your own adventure book! Finally now though after playing so many of the amazing games offered here under the Choice label and Hosted games alike, I’ve decided to start putting some serious work into one of my own.
Elemental Discordance is based on an idea I had some years ago, though it’s gone through a number of changes to fit my current idea for this story. In my vision of this there will be multiple games, with the first one following the main character, a young man, as he’s given the chance to make his dream come true, becoming a mage. He’s faced with the realities of that decision, what really comes along with using magic. The realities of a world outside of his small town, and those of society as well.
This first game in the planned series will place a lot of emphasis on the classes he takes and the magic he seeks to learn, yes, you’ll actually play out multiple classes. I plan to make learning fun! Well, pretend learning anyway. The rest of the focus will be on the dynamic between the main character and the other students at the school, and the separate dynamic between him and the people he meets in the town.
I hope to have a demo ready within the next couple of weeks, but I wanted to make this post to sort of push myself to do so since with this I’m “advertising” the game in a sense.
