Interest Check Thread

I am sooooo curious about how the earth and society would look in this setting! There’s so so many directions this could go and that’s exciting aahhhh. Definitely would love to hear a bit about the story if/when it’s ready and you’re comfortable! :smiley: Also would be super curious down the line to know more about different sorts of customisations are planned to be available for the character (appearance? personality? background? gender? sexual/romantic orientation?) and obviously I want to know aaaallll about the RO but that’s spoilery so I can be patient. :stuck_out_tongue:
Also, honestly even if this weren’t on a different timeline from our current earth I could see this sorta bs happening irl. We’d have next to no resources left and instead of seriously looking into renewable stuff capitalists would absolutely just go “let’s find something else to sell, ooooh look an energy source we don’t understand, let’s use it!”


To be perfectly honest the original protagonist was a straight white Male, however full customization for all aspects you listed are definitely something me and my co-partner are committed to. We want as many people as possible to be able to enjoy the world we created!

As far as the second part you pretty much hit it on the head. Desperation led to people scrambling to try and use something that they didn’t understand and had no business in using.

Adding on to this the background is the only thing that we may keep because it is such a big piece of the story, however if it can fit we will definitely try adding it in.


In a land far, far, away. Just kidding!!! You are a normal kid that goes to a normal school in a normal town. But after a late night trip to the town’s mountains, something’s different. You’re stronger, faster, smarter. The supreme human. But you’re not the only one. Half the school is now “better humans”. Now shipped off to a elite boarding school, how will you deal with your new life and new loves…


Thirty-Two is a gladiator game set in space. As a prisoner of the futuristic Empire, you have to win a 32-person tournament - or die trying. You can win your matches by being strong or fast, of course, but you can also give yourself more of a fighting change through foul play - learning your opponents’ weaknesses, sabotaging their equipment, etc. Will you earn your freedom as a citizen of the Empire, or will you try to steal a spaceship and live off the grid with one of five possible love interests?

The game will also feature:

  • Three unique, playable alien races (plus humans of course)
  • Genetic modification as a sort of progression system
  • A lot of variety: you can meddle with other people’s fights, effectively controlling which of the 32 tournament participants live or die.

You will be able to choose your gender and race - all romanceable characters will be player-sexual, so you won’t be locked out of any interactions. Let me know what you all think!


still working out the basics, but i’ve had a sudden idea for an argonauts based story. in here, you play as a crew member of the argo, joining them in many of their adventures. this is going to have a few liberties every now and then.

key features:
  • sail on many adventures with your crew.
  • retrieve the golden fleece, save cities, and slay monsters… or completely tame them!
  • become a champion of an olympian, and receive a blessing from them.
  • choose an olympian to represent.
  • romance one of your crewmates… or simply befriend them!
  • fight on for glory, for money, or for reasons completely your own!

Atalanta (f): She’s a champion of Artemis, and is skilled with hunting, as well as with her bow and arrow. She is reserved and stand-offish, feeling out of place in a crew mostly inhibited by men.
Jason (m): Leader of the Argonauts, son of Aeson, and champion of Hera. He seeks to reclaim his lost kingdom, and has sought you for assistance. He is steadfast and driven, and yet something tells you that he’s harboring guilt from something in his past.
Castor (m): He’s the twin brother of Pollux, and is a son of Tyndareus. He’s fun and free-spirited, preferring to take things on as they come rather than preparing for them. And yet beneath his smiles and his jokes, something bothers him.
Pollux (m): He’s the twin brother of Castor, and is a son of Zeus. Unlike his brother, he’s serious, never seems to know how to have fun, and always preferring to prepare for things before they even happen. But like his brother, he is hiding a secret.

a lot of the details are still being worked on but for now, these are all that i got.


For the veterans aware of my track record, the first thing they’ll have to think is how poor it tends to be, due to my lack of focus. But what I’m having now is the rare thing of actually feeling ideas properly flow. So what I’m having now, is the first bit of feeling actual inspiration.

While massive spoiler warning, all these ideas for text games would take place in the same fictional universe, it would be nice to know what people would want to focus on as a thing for them to do. If a game is ever made and if it goes right, the rest can be looked at as tie-ins perhaps(Same world, completely different characters)

Ideas I currently have:

Exorcists hunting ghosts. I’ve already partially started on this(Debating how to progress it is another thing.) In this conflict, the conflict is between other exorcists of how to deal with dangerous spirits. Is it better to condemn them to hell or purge them from existence entirely? Is it really up to mortals to decide that? The sides aren’t about being right, but rather, just different points of views. That being said, someone can follow said school and still be a horrible person just as easily as a good one. But is there a right path, and what is it, if any? That’s the question the Schools war at each other with. They don’t want to just fight the opponent and beat them out. The Schools mean to do good in their own way, but all believe in their own ideology and want to convince the other of they’re path being the right one.

Immortals trying to hold onto immortality without upholding their end of the bargain(There’s more I’d love to expand on about this, but I’d hate to spoil the whole adventure.)

Angels trying to save humanity by making paradise. Basically, the angels completely wipe out all demonic corruption and save the earth by destroying demons. But now the angels and light beings are trying to make a perfect world for people but all of them have different ideas of what making a paradise for humans is. This isn’t simply Light=Law and Order. There are those angels, but they conflict into entirely different paradigms. Justice vs Mercy, Order vs Freedom, and the real risk of while few demons remain the potential of demon corruption to always taint and have someone fall. They all aspire to make the best possible life for humans, but have very different ideas of what exactly that means.

Elemental guardians spawned to save earth, which would be kind of like the light world but these are guardians who can be much more like jerkass gods, only worshipped so they don’t kill everyone, depending on which one. Once, the God of Life was lonely. Wanting to make some friends for herself, she created the minor gods out of elements of the earth. For the better part of a few thousand years, it was fun. But the minor gods while still powerful, have the key difference of being able to age and grow up over time, leaving a lot of now matured gods in the service of a child. When human life started to definitively evolve into a proper species, the elemental gods never understood why it was supposed to be so special compared to all other species. As beings that predate it, they have trouble understanding the Life God’s orders to act as actual guardians. Even as far as the nicest of them can tell, hurting humans is bad because it’s basically animal abuse. But being told that not only do they need to make room for this trivial race, but they’re being told that they need to be docile and helpful to them as they’re the Creator’s favored creations despite coming centuries later, with the guardians themselves apparently only coming in second to these mortals. How much they might resent their appointed roles, be supportive or just altogether indifferent, varies on the player.

  • Exorcists
  • Immortal Deal With The Devils
  • Angelic Paradise
  • World Defenders

Hmm. So the split, while leans just a bit more to the one, it’s not that far spread from the others. Just as well, the one I knew most likely to win out, was the one I was stressing having to focus on. While it seems like I could chose to focus on whatever, ultimately, I’m inclined to go with the direction people point me in. Still presents a problem in the sense, going with any decision will annoy people who wanted something else to be focused on, especially when it’s a relatively balanced split. I think as long as I’m able to do whatever well though, most will be inclined to forgive me for not going with exactly what they wanted as long as the end result is something that’s entertaining and fun to play. At least, that’s what I hope.


Personally all the games sounded very interesting to me, I’d buy all of them just off the description. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of them :slight_smile:


Okay guys, I have decided to dive deeper, I will really make a WIP thread starting November '20.

I’ve been looking at playstore for both hosted games and choices games, few are free titles with ads, and others are paid to unlock full stories or even paid to play, so how about the revenue share for authors?

Should I just shut down all hopes and set my game free or is it doable to hope for ‘okay’ side income from selling gamebooks, I’m not planning to be full-time writers or stopping WIP because there is no money in it.

I saw the download counts on playstore, which The Great Tournament has a whooping 500k, but other titles that are not completely free got as much as 100k downloads, I just want to know how much free with ads or paid titles got so far.

that’s what I’ve been thinking lately, any replies will be appreciated

thank you


Hello friends! I’ve been thinking of a game to make lately, but it’s a little different from your usual cog. I’ve been around for a year or so, and I’ve yet to see a game like this. (sorry if there is and I didn’t know :sweat_smile:)

I was thinking of making a book with four different stories in it. Each story has its own mc and each mc has their own character. At the start of the story you’d be able to pick one of them and, as the story goes on, shape how they are by the choices you’ll have them take.

For example, if you chose an Mc that at the start was shy and quiet. As the story goes one you may pick choices that’d make them more outgoing and such.

Do you think peopled would like it?


it’d be alright, I know two wips both have two different mcs during the storytelling.


There is actually a game like that. It’s War of the Gods.


I’d be interested in reading it :smile:

More like a future version of earth. However instead of nations there are kingdoms. Think of a cross between Skyrim and Halo.

There are two routes through the game. The first you play as a “Spartan II” type of person. No augmentations or anything like that. That grew up in a place that would make living on Pluto look like nothing but a pleasant dream.

The second route would be that of an “OUTSIDER” or someone not born where the other pc option is from. With this route you will basically have to fight for your right to choose who you end up with. While trying to find out what happened to your “soulmate”.


This is a little look into the kind of weaponry that would exist in the world.


  1. DRAGON tank
  2. NLM’s (Nuclear Land Mine)
  3. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber sniper
  4. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber light machine gun
  5. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber minigun
  6. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber pistol
  7. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber shotgun
  8. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber submachine gun
  9. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber rifle
  10. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber medium machine gun
  11. TIBRAINIUM 500. caliber heavy machine gun
  12. TIBRAINIUM 1000. caliber rocket launcher

(A 500 caliber TIBRAINIUM round is the real world equivalent of a 50 caliber armor piercing round the size of a round fired by a battleships main gun.)


  1. BATTLE CARRIER types. The BATTLE CARRIER has it own separate branch of the navy and thus are not subjected to the same rules. The BATTLE CARRIER was first developed by the UNSC. However the prototype that the UNSC built was lost during a routine test and was assumed to have been destroyed with all hands lost. Most of the crew on board the prototype went into stasis while a skeleton crew was kept awake to keep the ship in top condition, with the crew members switching every two months. Five years went by before the ship was discovered by the THUNDER kingdom of the USC. The ship was taken to a nearby space dock. Where it was thoroughly searched for any tracking devices, then taken deep into the heart of the THUNDER kingdom.

    The INDEPENDENCE class of BATTLE CARRIERS is by far the strongest and toughest ship in the entire navy. The biggest ones are capable of fire a staggering 800 shells per minute. While the smaller ones can fire close to 609 shells per minute. The INDEPENDENCE class has a total of 600 separate turrets. The main weapon of this class are the 16 MANC guns. Each MANC gun fires three shots per charge. One round from any of the MANC guns can punish a hole clean through three hundred feet of highly condensed battleship armor.

  3. NUCLEAR class
    The main feature of the NUCLEAR class is the amount of fighters and bombers it can carry. Though it is not as big as the INDEPENDENCE class, it is just as tough. The NUCLEAR class is armed with 600, 500 caliber AA guns, capable of blowing a hole through pretty much anything.

  4. HEAVY class
    The HEAVY class is mainly used for support. Due to the amount of armor it has little in the way of fire power. This type of BATTLECARRIER can usually be seen with two different types of BATTLE CARRIERS.

  5. MEDIUM class
    One of the smallest BATTLE CARRIERS is the MEDIUM class. Due to its size it is nearly impossible to hit at close range without blowing apart your own ship in the process. The main feature of this class is its ability to penetrate deep into enemy lines and attack from behind. What it lacks in armor and weapons it makes up for in speed and mobility.

  6. LIGHT class
    This class is by far one of the smallest BATTLE CARRIERS. It originally was intended to be a heavily armed cargo ship. However at some point in development a mistake was made which turned into a battlecarrier.

  7. DARK class
    The DARK class was made during a time of peace. So there was no need to give it huge amounts of weapons and armor. However when fighting broke out. Most of the DARK class BATTLE CARRIERS were refitted and rearmed with the same weapons and armor as their big brothers in the LIGHT class.

  8. Time class
    The TIME class is well known for its capability to perform quick infiltrations and extractions. It was built due to the demand of transport vessels need to take back certain colonies. At first this class was apart of the army. Later on it was put into the BATTLE CARRIER branch of the navy.

  9. SPACE class
    The SPACE class was designed for short term engagements. Mainly used for scouting missions. It was never meant to be used in large scale battles.

  10. ESCORT class
    The ESCORT class is by far the smallest class of BATTLE CARRIERS. However it’s size is deceiving. A single escort class battle carrier can take down three enemy capital ships.


Hi American Ninja Nine,

You’ve got a list of WWII-era weapons, and a few terms taken from Halo, but I’m not really sure what this story is about. A list of weapons and battleships is fine and dandy, but there’s nothing really that interesting about the weapons aside from the fact that they’re World War II But Bigger.

I also don’t know what a Spartan-II is supposed to mean in the context of your world. I’m sure it means something in the Halo universe, but you’re not writing a Halo novel … are you?

In any case, seems like a pretty stock standard video gamey FPS arsenal and RTS fleet, but I don’t have any sense of a story.

My recommendation is to pick one of those ships and tell a small, self-contained story within it. As a challenge, include only one major fight, and have that fight near the beginning! Can you tell an interesting story set in the DARK class battleship, with a totally non-violent climax?

I highlighted the DARK class ship because it’s the only one with a story attached – it’s a ship built for peace that has been retrofitted for war. Nobody on the ship wants to fight. The ship wasn’t even designed for it. They’re barely supposed to be in the war at all. Their armor is like paper compared to the guns their enemies are no doubt wielding, and their cannons are like BB guns compared to the impenetrable armor they’ll be facing off against. And yet some idiot bureaucrat back on Earth signed some bill with a clause attached that the DARK class is going to get shot out into space with all the other ships as cannon fodder, not even as strong as the ships literally called the LIGHT class. Everyone wants to get off this god damn death trap. Everyone wants to return to their coast guard job rescuing kids from riptides or whatever. They want to go home.

And then they get their chance. Some ridiculously gregarious supersoldier blows up an enemy mothership and then rockets through space protected by nothing but his armour and just so happens to attach himself to the DARK class battleship, pounding on the glass of the bridge and demanding that they take him back to Earth immediately so he can deliver the important information downloaded into his helmet. The rest of the fleet will clear a path – just go – NOW.

And we’re off! Good start to a “be careful what you wish for” story as the crew ponders the nature of war and the morality of their mission when the dark secret of the data contained on that helmet is revealed …


True but you have to remember that each of the ships serves a specific role. And they rarely fight alone. I have a segment of the story written out but need input on where to put in choices. I will post the story segment right now.

Chapter I


February 13th 1987: It was a peaceful day the wind was blowing, kids were out flying their kites. All of that changed around noon. I was walking home from school that day. When I saw something flying through the air it was too big to be a basketball and too small to be a plane. I didn’t know what it was until the sound caught up with it. The object just kept getting closer and closer. Then everything went black. I came too not knowing what happened. When I tried to move my body, all my joints would scream in pain. That was when I looked to my left and saw a full fledged battle raging in the middle of town. I looked around me and saw that I was the only kid outside. No kids were flying kites. No one was playing a game of hopscotch. There was nothing like that. I remember hearing someone scream to my right. I turned my head in the direction of the screaming to find out who it was. It was one of my friends. She was trapped under a piece of concrete. I tried to help her out from under the giant slab but it would not budge. Her screaming was attracting unwanted attention. I froze not knowing what to do. In that split second of fear I noticed that time started moving slower. When I moved my hand it seemed to be moving at the speed of light. The enemy was twenty feet away now. I had to act fast if I wanted to save my friend. I went to find a crowbar, but when I got back they were already on top of her. I knew the only way to save her was to get their attention, but how? I looked around and spotted a fire hydrant. I ran over to it and ripped off the cover. Sending thousands of gallons of water shooting into the air. I took control of the water and sent it rushing at them. They turned around to see what was going on. To their disbelief a wall of water fifty feet high was rushing at them. They started to run for their lives. They only got three - four blocks before the water overtook them. I still regret what I did. Yet I know there was no other choice. After the enemies were taken care of. I started to help my friend out from underneath the concrete slab. After she was free we started to head home. Only to find out that our homes had been destroyed. I never felt so angry in my life. If my friend had not been there to calm me down. I do not know what would have happened. We took refuge in the alleyway behind my house. My friend and I were the only people to make it out of the battle zone alive. I lost my family. Only my older sister who was away at college at the time of the attack survived. My friend was luckier than me most of her family had gotten out just before their house collapsed on them. Until that day I had no idea of the power that was inside me. Over the next few weeks we searched for survivors. I would direct the rescue workers to the piles in which survivors were trapped farthest from the surface first. We all knew that they would need to be rescued before anyone else. After a few days of digging we freed the last of the survivors from their ruined homes and workplaces.


Anyone interested in an isekai game?


Sounds potentially interesting, but you’re going to have to give more details than that. What world would the MC transported to? How? What’s their role there?
