Writing games is difficult. I’ve yet to finish one. (Unless you count the project I did in 12 days which I don’t really since it’s nowhere close to publishable.)
While you’d think that converting an existing piece of fiction into a game would make things easier it doesn’t since you generally have the wrong sort of structure. Things that work well in linear fiction don’t always come across so well in interactive fiction (and vice versa).
You’re right not to want to compromise on your story and characters just to make it interactive.
Hang around on the forums, read the other projects and contribute where you can. You never know, perhaps inspiration will strike and you’ll have a fantastic idea for some interactive fiction.
Don’t feel bad for this being an unfinished project. I’ve a ridiculous amount of those. (And far too many unfinished game posts on these forums too).
And don’t apologise for being confused, we’ve all been there.
I’m closing this thread like you asked.
