Life in a New Realm (WIP)


#1

Ok, so hello CoG! I just recently found this amazing site and after playing through several games I decided to try my hand at it.

I’ve never coded anything ever, but I do believe I have some sort of grasp on CS after fiddling with it for a day.
Anyway, the game I intend to make will be called Life in a New Realm (if the thread title didn’t give it away)
I’m going to try and make it quite depth-y. Having many different paths and such for different ages and genders.
I really have no idea how well it’ll turn out or anything, just trying to try something new.

Now to the details of the story:
You will be a person differing from age 9-55 who has found themselves transported to a completely different realm. You can try to find a way out, or acclimate to the land.
Knowing nothing of the land though, you find yourself picking a mental guide from “The Emporium of Mental Guides.” They can help you learn magic, become adept in swordplay, or even be a very close companion. Many things need to be done in this realm, it’s up to you to decide what to do. A fantasy type game is what I’d consider it.

Now I’ve got the very bloody beginning done. I work my way down the list of ages, so currently the youngest choice has the most. Just barely though. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/175148678/web/index.html

Let’s hope that everything works so far. XD

Well anyway, this reminds me of the Children of Iseir game, except with a more typical fantasy focus. (Not that I’m trying to say that it’s bad)

I’m curious as to your approach, though: You get lost, you find a portal, you go through it (Lord knows why), you find yourself in a forest.
It seems very… meatless, for lack of a better term.

Eh, I learn fast. :stuck_out_tongue:
I’m trying to give a sense that who you were matters nothing here. It’ll get more detailed.
Also you didn’t really choose to go through it. Just kinda happened.


#4

Eh, fair enough.


#5

Going for many different pathways? An admirable goal; try not to get overwhelmed, eh?


#6

I must agree with Drazen. It is very easy to get overwhelmed with an enormous work.


#7

Just make sure you have a clearly defined point where you know you need to *finish* the story, and a clear idea in your mind about what *has* to be in and what can be cut.

And keep at it, you’ll be fine.

This sounds like a good idea although (no offense meant) if you are going to have a lot of paths and such you might want to try to get someone to help with coding or writing also the link gave me a 404 error. Good luck! :smile:

@Wolfsra Just so you know, the forums have a handy new flag button which is a quicker way to call the moderators attention to something that is breaking the rules. It’s easier than typing in our names and perhaps forgetting someone. :smile:
