New To Writing ChoiceGames

I just got into this two weeks ago and fell in love with this creative medium.

It took an afternoon to learn the coding, it’s really straight forward with the example, and the usage wiki made it beyond easy.

I’m half-way through my first project and it doesn’t suck. Noob first-offs always suck but as a writer, the coding is so easy to pick up, making a mess isn’t an issue, I can focus on the story and structure.

I’m having a fantastic time with it and I’m grateful to those whose work went into developing this medium into what it is - making writing enjoyable.

I see why you’re all so enthusiastic!

Coffee on, back to writing! :slight_smile:


I’m glad that you’re liking it. Hopefully you’ll have a WIP to post here soon! :smiley:


That’s awesome! I’m looking forward to seeing what you write, and don’t be shy about asking lots of questions!


Welcome. :smiley: I look forward to you posting a WIP thread.


Glad you’re enjoying it, and good luck with the project!


I’m in the same boat as you are. Long time reader and I recently started writing my own story as well. Best of luck to you! :slight_smile: Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it. This community will help you out if you need it.


Welcome to the community! I’ll be keeping an eye out for your first project.

One helpful tip I can offer is to open Notepad++ and download the Choicescript language extension. Comes in handy.

I’ve been using regular Notepad - what a step up with those handy line numbers! Thanks for the tip!

In the home stretch on the first draft.

I just have the climax files to complete, using the acquired choices to if/else the player through how things go down at the climax from all of their prior choices.

It should come in at ~50K words.

Are WIPs usually first drafts or file by file?
