Hey everyone, I’m a new member here at CoG and thought I tried my hand at making an interactive story. Though, there are two things you need to know about me first.
I’m not a writer, I suck at grammar and English is not my first language. So don’t feel let down when you read my writing, because it can be quite blunt.
I’m entirely new to coding, never coded anything before until now with choice script. I do however, know the basics and have already started with my game’s intro.
There now that, that’s settled let’s begin with the story’s premise. (Just a note, it’s still in its early stages so expect a lot of changes as I progress with the game.) You’re a spy working for a top secret agency called Epsilon. This agency is not government funded, and has no specific allegiances. Its main goal is to insure the safety of the world against war and terrorism… at any cost.
Your past has been erased; all details of you have been stricken from all databases in the world. You no longer have a real name or past. You’re only known by your codename, which you will be able to choose in game. Your life is Epsilon now. Its kind of like Men in Black minus the space aliens.
You are sent to a fictionalised South Africa, to capture a high priority target hiding there. He’s wanted for treason, and conspiracy. It seems like a simple assignment, or could there be more to this than the eye can see?
Now you’re not going to be a spy in the traditional sense like James Bond. In other words, you won’t be driving around in a million dollar car with thousands of gadgets. But there will be infiltrating military bases and embassies while posing as high ranking officials and such.
But the game isn’t going to be just about spying. I plan to add a management mechanic nearing the end of the game. But I’ll say more about that later, just have to test it out first.
So that’s the game I’m busy with. There’s still a whole lot of stuff I’m going to change in the story. For example the story’s name, I’m not dead set on it yet. I’m going the change the spy agency’s name as well. Epsilon is just a placeholder until I come up with something better.
So any comments, tips or criticism are welcomed and appreciated.
