Hello everyone! My name is deers and I’ve been a longtime lurker on the forums and a big fan of CoG and Hosted games for even longer than that! I finally decided to bite the bullet and make a game myself.
This is the first time I’ve ever written a story for public consumption so the process has been more than a little nerve-wracking (but also exciting!)
So with all that introduction stuff out of the way, I’m sure you’d want to know about “Roots”, the story I’m writing!
Plot: You’re just a regular joe-schmoe who works at a diner in Hawaii trying to rub two cents together trying to make ends meet. When a mysterious pearl falls into your hands one rainy night, your life is changed forever.
That’s more or less the basics of it without getting into spoiler territory!
This story will be heavily focused on mythology and urban legends from many different cultures and will have the MC traveling all across the U.S (and beyond) with some companions from different mythologies they can recruit along the way.
Updated Chapter 2. This update adds 3-4k words, a couple more options during character creation, and a glossary for words that you encounter during the course of the game.
I realize I said I would hold out until the chapter branch was finished, but since I start school back up next week I thought I might as well post what I have as a last hurrah.
Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the private testing session! I think it went really well and I’m glad that I decided to start one up
Going to open a poll for whether or not anyone is interested in beta-testing. If I did open up beta-testing, the public link would only be updated once I was confident a branch/chapter was done. Beta-testers will get much more frequent updates but as a consequence, they will be a lot smaller.
Depending on the poll results, I’ll either continue business as usual, or start inviting people to a private testing thread.
Also in other happy news! I recently reached 100+ followers on tumblr
Thank you everyone who’s supported my project so far! You all make me want to write more
