I have been planning to develop a ChoiceScript game for a little bit but I have encountered a problem when it comes to writing. My story is about a failed child prodigy racer who ends up getting roped into street racing (initial d style) but I don’t really know how to properly detail the races.
I kind of want it to be similar to Initial D in terms of the races. There would be your protagonist in your car and you would pick your choices (which might be timed) and your rival would react accordingly. I feel like 1st person would not allow for the rival to play much of a part in the race until you overtake them or they overtake you. 2nd person has the same problems as 1st person, but it wouldn’t be as jarring to switch perspective mid race to show what your rival is doing. 3rd person might be the easiest in writing races but I don’t want the entire story in 3rd person, only the races.
So yeah, if anyone wants to share their opinions that would be great.
If none of this makes sense I don’t mind clarifying.
