Hello there, im a new writer and have an idea for the COGs. i have been reading much of people’s games and found other idea fascinating, seeing what kind of world and characters the created. anyway heres my idea:
PRIMED (title up for debate) Backstory
The year was 200X, an hour of meteors struck the earth, destroying much of human works and killing a lot of people. Governments created aid programs to help and unite humanity to building what they lost. In humans dire time, a blessing (some say curse) occurred. The debris from space polluted the earths atmosphere with some sort of radiation, giving individuals powers; humans combining with and having complete control of a natural element (from the periodic table). Humanity was scared once again, fearing these PRIMERS. There were some who would use their power for good, aiding the public and advancing the rebuilding of civilization but some used their power against others. In 5 years humans got back were they were, in 3 years, humans advanced to new length thanks to PRIMERS.
It is the year 20XX, You are local nobody residing in the advance city of NEW HARAS (name up for debate), you are attending a local university, who suddenly get powers and must choose what to do with it. Join the heroes program and register as a hero or become villain to do whatever you want.
What I Planned to Do
- have personality choices and responses: Good, Neutral, and Bad (which then determines personality) (also if decided to be hero, choices wont be locked so can pick the villain choice)
- have ifs; if you have high Bad stats non choice conversations will be affected
- have romance options, must ‘hang’ with person of interest and maxing out or reaching a certain point in bar stat for romance scene
Things I Have Thoughts On But Still Need to Think About
- Main character is plain so no ‘physical’ customizing except gender (makes it easier to write) but can choose backstory and costume style
- Have characters that are romancable be gender locked and have own sexual preferences (or just have main character romance anyone they like regardless of gender)
- Power, I do not know what kind of power the main character should get but will be powerful in any case.
I already have everything on paper figuratively speaking and some of the intro written but I AM NOT A WRITER and this is my first real coding project. So this might take a long while but I just want it out there. In any case I am thinking of submitting this to the Choice of Games contest but I am not sure, have to see where this ends up to see.
Any thoughts would be appreciated, especially on the ‘thoughts that still need thinking’
