In Tally Ho, which I’m just finishing up, I have a way that the MC could have a bad ending about 7/8 through a long, long game. How would you feel about a choice that was set up like this:
#“All right, I agree,” I say with conviction.
#“All right, I agree,” I say, lying.
#“Absolutely not. I refuse to betray her.” (Note: this choice will end this narrative here, offering a tragic conclusion.)
This choice shows up if the MC has gotten themselves into a real bind, with no way out other than to work with a foe.
Would that annoy you, or would you appreciate the fair warning?
