Hello, Hello, Hello, I’m Soul and I was curious about a few things, like how did people start off writing their own stories and what do people really look for in these types of games and some other questions.
(Also, if I’m not allowed to post questions on this category or if I am using the wrong category, I don’t mind deleting this and putting it in the right one.)
So let me start by why I want to ask these questions, 1. I’ve been thinking about writing my own stories and I see this as being an easy way to have people read my stories and get feedback and see if people will enjoy it or have no opinion about it but since I’m new to, well, making these types of games I’m not entirely sure where to start, which is why I’m making this post, obviously, pfft.
I kinda want to hear what people have to say, maybe I could get some ideas from this? Maybe this could help other people start out? Or this could let people voice what they like and other writers could see what people enjoy?
Curiosity killed the cat but I am really curious so I guess I should start off the questions;
So for Writers both old and new, what are your guy’s advices if you have any and what was it like first making your stories? I’m honestly super nervous and I’m not even sure if I’m posting this in the right category or something and I haven’t even wrote anything, lol.
What are some people favorite things about CoG mechanics? Like do you guys enjoy states, randomness like with abilities, if you will suceed or not, or something else? Kinda like the mechanics in Breach: Archangel Job and having the possibility of failing or suceeding.
What type of stories do you guys enjoy? Like Horror, Mystery, or stuff with action? I’ve noticed some people enjoying the romance genre alot.
How usually long does it take for some people to write these types of games? I know this could either take an afternoon if it’s gonna be short but like 10,000 words would take a long while, maybe even take half a year to maybe even a year, would make sense with writer blocks, outside forces, and even just having other jobs to do.
(Changing it from 500,000 to 10,000 so people don’t think I’m actually gonna do that, I swear I am sane and not gonna spend a couple of years to write a IF with 500,000 words)
So, I can’t really think of anymore questions as of rn, my mind is running out of ideas on what to ask sooooooo, I hope everyone has a wonderful day/night/afternoon and remember to take care of yourselves and watch out for boredom since that isn’t fun, pfft.
