I’m working on a story for my schoolproject, which is at the moment called “Metropia” (altough if I find a better title, I will swap it). The story is based around you, trying to survive in an apocalyptic-urban enviroment, and my goal is to encourage younger generations (primarily teenagers) to read more fictional literature.
The length of the story is about 10, 000 words each chapter, and I am currently aiming towards 2-3 chatpers (First chapter is done, and second chapter is half-done). In the end of the story, there will be a short analyze on the readers personality, morals, and how well the reader would manage in an actual acolyptic enviroment. It might sound a bit dull at first sight, but if everything turns out as planned, I think it would be an interesting way to end the story.
Altough, I have some questions regarding how CoG handles the games they recieve:
a) How long does it take, on an avarage, for a story that is around 20, 000 - 30, 000 words, to be made into a working download-able app on Andriods/Apples (count starting from the day I send in the story)? My schoolwork is supposed to be done in the beginning of Mars, and I need to have the time it takes for the story to hit phones into my calculations.
b) Will the application be free?
c) Will I be able to add new chapter to the story after the story have become an app?
d) Is there anything else I should know before and after I have submited my story to CoG?
On an unrelated note: I will ask all readers of the story to answer a short survey after they have read the story. The survey will be about how much time they spend reading fiction, and if they would be interested in more fiction-stories like the games CoG is offering. Just giving a heads up about it.
Ps. Be warned! English is not my native language, and grammar misstakes are bound to happen!
