No one wants me to give up? That’s very strange

I mean, it’s a fairly harsh option and no one here would actively put a writer down :cowboy_hat_face:

I do have a question though; how advanced are we talking in regards to technology? Advanced for 2019 or just advanced for 1867? I know you mentioned computers but that can range from old Commodores to a super intelligent AI :thinking:

More or less, 2019 technology.

Wow, someone wants me to give up… :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

It’s me, I want me to give up… lol.

Okay well since no one dislikes the idea I’m gonna try my hardest to actually work on it tomorrow and not login on ROBLOX and play Phantom Forces…

Edit: well not that I really gave you guys a choice to dislike it, I mean it was either ‘I like it’, ‘it’s okay’, or ‘give up on your dreams’. So not much of a choice… but thems how the world works… I guess… sometimes you have to give people the illusion of choice… and I guess I don’t play fair game…

Hey everyone!

I have recently begun planning my first interactive story! It is based on one of my passions, which is wrestling. However, unlike Slammed this will deal with the much more violent and hardcore “deathmatch” style of wrestling, which is depicted as very taboo due to the violent scenes portrayed.

Deathmatch wrestling is a style of wrestling known for insane bloodshed, mainly due to the weapons they use. Thumbtacks, glass, light tubes…you name it. This is a massive sport in Japan, and some states of America.

After doing some research, I am now planning the universe and history of the story - which will bit by bit be revealed. The public demo is ages away, due to me being a novice at choicescript and the fact that I am computer-less at the moment.

Feel free to comment any questions and I will answer them when I can! Ciao!

This is a good thing that you’re doing some research into Japan’s wrestling. I feel like they’re completely ahead of the business at this moment with their expansion into the wrestling world. Not to mention their insanely long history with holding death matches, doing moves if done wrong can either kill a person or paralyze them as it has done for many wrestlers in the world.

Since the WIP mentioned Toronto in the title, I am going to assume that the story takes place in Canada. May I make a suggestion that we learn wrestling from a parody of the Harts and the Dungeon?

That’s a really good idea.

I have a character who trains your character planned out, but he is a bit of a backwoods character. So the “dungeon” might be a little different.

Your idea sounds interesting, but I think the interest check thread would be a better place for your discussion until you have a working demo to share :slight_smile:

I’ll give it a read when there’s a demo. It strikes me as a little strange that the story is flagged both “Adult-content” and “Young-Adult-Fiction”

Probably because of the author planning on adding wrestling’s “death matches” which is extremely violent and you normally won’t see it in American wrestling.

Oh yeah…I get why it might be considered adult content…I just don’t quite get how something can be both adult content and young adult.

Isn’t it like saying, “this book is aimed at young adults, but contains things that are inappropriate for young people?”

I plan on removing the young adult tag. I just don’t know what else to tag it as :slight_smile:

But thanks for your interest!

Been toying about with the idea of having multiple promotions you can do sidejobs with, that can in turn increase your popularity meter. Thoughts?

I actually would like that to be honest. Maybe add some events working with a different promotion like Ring of Honor did with New Japan too?

Not a bad idea. Will keep it in mind.

There will be some “legacy” matches included in the base game too, which are just optional texts you can read for notable parts of the company, since the game starts in 2018 and the company started in 1995.

Do you mean something like the Hell in a Cell match between Undertaker and Mick Foley as Mankind? The one where Mick Foley was thrown off of the top and later crashed through the steel to the ring?

Well, these will be well known matches in that universe, so in a way, yes.

Well, this does seem like a pretty interesting project. Hurray for gratuitous violence! I’ll await for the demo with interest.

To be fair, I get the impression that a lot of the published young adult litterature nowadays would be labelled as adult content on CoG. I mean, it often tries to explore the themes of violence and sexuality (with various degree of success). I suppose young adult is still adult?
