Hi there, everyone. I’m the author of the HGs Trial of the Demon Hunter, Captive of Fortune, and Foundation of Nightmares, as well as the WIP, The Magician’s Task. As a chess tutor and an aspiring Chess Master, I’ve wanted to write an interactive novel about the game for a long time, and now I’ve started this up again.
In Journey of the Chess Master, you are an 18 year old who has just recently graduated high school, and you dream of one day becoming a Chess Master. You are currently a chess tutor, and you are one of the highest rated players in Nebraska, but you are still just a strong amateur. In order to become a Master, you will have to study like crazy, practice constantly, and hardest of all, get through Ronald, the only Master in the entire state, who also happens to be arrogant as hell.
Currently, there is only a very small demo to give you a feel for some of what’s to come, but I plan on making this a large story with tons of chess and lots of (hopefully) interesting and three dimensional characters. Here is what there WILL be when it’s finished:
- The FIRST and ONLY interactive novel about chess
- Plenty of tense strategical struggles and brutal tactical melees over the board!
- Lots of stats that detail your chess attributes, personality, relationships, etc
- 6 Romance Options: 3 male, and 3 female
- Choose your gender: nonbinary, male, or female
- Romance males, females, both, or no one at all
However, progress for this story will be very slow until I finish my main WIP, The Magician’s Task. For the most part, I will only be working on Chess Master when I get stuck on TMT or if I get a lot of inspiration to write for this one.
Anyways, enough of my rambling. Let me know what you think. It will be quite difficult to make this interesting and accessible to readers who don’t play chess, or people who are beginners to the game, but that’s my goal.
