Hello, I wrote a few words of a game about being a vampire over the course of a couple of days. I know nothing about writing, but I do like interactive fiction so I thought I would write down the story I had, like literally in a dream.
Its only a few thousand words (like 7 thousand), and its lacks “tightness”, especially the 2nd “chapter”, but, i did write in in about 24 hours.
but but but, the other alternative was to throw it in the trash, and I thought some others would get a kick out of it, and if you’re anything like me you are all starved for more interactive fiction. even bad and short interactive fiction.
Anyway I want to say straight up that this is not a “work in progress,” I have no story planned, this was literally a dream, and as such I woke up before it finished. So I’ve run out of story as of now. Maybe I’ll have a think about it and write some more, but writing is hard work! (edit: i had another dream about the same thing so maybe ill write that up too!)
Also its 100% story focused, so no need to worry about your choices changing any sort of “stat”, also its really linear, which you will see if you play through 2+ times, mostly its about people reacting in different ways to what you do or say. I have also realised that when you write these things it becomes really hard to judge the “tone” of different playthroughs so some things might wobble around in tone, idk.
I called it The Bloody Queen, becaause you play a female vampire, and they like blood. and also I lack imagination!
Story: You’re a vampire, asleep in a hotel, then everything goes “pear shaped” Even vampires can get hurt by bullets, uh oh.i don’t really want to spoil what little “plot” there is.
Vampires: its cool to be a vampire, you can live forever, but also not, oww sunlight will burn you to a barbeque, bullets, they hurt too. You’re strong but not that strong, and also you have to drink blood like all the time, otherwise you get all weak and maybe you would die, not actually worked this out yet, the dream didnt specify.
Stats: theres no stats, i find them boring and difficult!
Sex/gender: sorry your a female vampire,the best kind of vampire because i didnt want to bother making anything complicated.
relationships: none, you’re a blood sucking monster!
Can you die or mess up in this game: no, so pick whatever choices feel good even not saying anything at all, which is lucky because if you die in a game you die in real life.
WARNINGS: vampires are gross, they murder people and drink their blood. Also they swear a lot.
