Hello I am new here and this is my first time posting something. I have an idea for a game and I am writing it but I am worried that the story is not interesting enough so I want to share the plot so I could know if it is interesting or if I can do something to make it more interesting or if I should just move on to an entirely new game.
Here is the idea, at the beginning of the game, you play as a seven year old(you grow as the story progresses), then you saw a phantom like creature while you are climbing the stairs. He intends to grant your wish or your dream because of something good that you have done. Since you are only a kid, you don’t have a proper or grand dream yet so he decided to stay with you for awhile until you know what it is that you truly want. The dreams that you could aim are for your family, for romance, or for your career. However, after you were able to realize your wish, the phantom will give you a series of challenges to compensate for granting the wish. I was thinking that the challenges are going to be like solving simple mysteries. While clearing the challenges you may still change your wish. Because things may come up like your brother getting sick. There will also be flashbacks to why the phantom became a phantom (since his appearance is that of a teenage boy/girl and he/she was also a human once).
The key to the game is to clear the challenges. I am thinking of a lot of endings, both good and bad, based on the choices, though as you play, you might not realize the relevance of some question but your choices will definitely affect the story.
I was thinking of elaborating more but I think that will do for now? I am not really good at summaries (and titles). Still thank you for reading this! I will really appreciate comments and suggestions. I will also understand if the idea is not good enough. I am actually a beginner and I just want to try doing this because it seems fun. However please don’t be too harsh
