I have an idea for a game, and I’m looking for advice/wanting to know if it would be liked.
In the world of the game, all of the characters are imaginary. And they know it.
They understand that they were thought up of just for entertainment purposes. That whatever they did, someone was making them do it. And that whatever they do, they have the same fate, depending on the author’s choices.
I was thinking about having a land full of “scrapped characters”, characters that were made, but didn’t make it into the final book. Because of this, some of them would be “underdeveloped” or “Mary Sue-like”, to those that come across them. One of the main points of the story, if I go this way, would show that even someone who “is overpowered” or “needs more development” is just the same as any character. If I do this, the main character would be one of them, probably a Sue/Stu.
I might have the characters come out into the real world as a plot twist, how does that sound? That’s really all that I know about the plot so far, though.
Of course, you’d get to choose your character’s gender (if they identify as one), orientation, name, personality, appearance, and other things.
