I am currently developing a ChoiceScript game called Sentinel. Right now I am still among the first few pages of the intro, but I’d still like some feedback.
I am completely new to ChoiceScript (and writing as a whole) and would appreciate it if you gave me tips and told me about any glitches you find.
In Sentinel, you play as a genderless Socoid, androids created in the Artificial Era to compensate for the lack of humans.
Humans on Earth were very industrious, always wanting to advance in the world of technology. Soon after discovering a new type of energy source called Circo and a new metal alloy, humans could easily power and make more machines than ever before. With more artificial products rolling in, machines had outnumbered humans 3 to 1, with mankind completely relying on technology to support them.
To combat this, a group of human scientists and mechanics formed Erigan Corp. and made a plan to repopulate their home planet. They would recycle dead robots and replace the insides with the organ systems of the dead. Using Circo to start their body over again, Erigan Corp. successfully brought the dead back to life.
However, the people thought the idea too inhumane and the “ReBots” were hidden away forever.
Soon, Erigan Corp. came up with a new idea to keep the Earth a human planet. They recycled the idea of “ReBots” but added a twist. These new androids were called “Socoids” and were robots with an artificial organ system heavily inspired by the human body. They were powered by Circo and only needed to breathe to survive. But Erigan Corp took it one step further. Every Socoid was implanted with a strict set of morals, ambitions, and emotions that made them more man than machine.
So where do you come in all of this?
You were the first Socoid, a prototype that was released from the lab early in development by your surrogate father. Still unstable and vastly different from the complete bots, you are as close as an android can get to being human.
But what kind are you?
Will you be a charismatic mischief maker, willing to do anything to keep yourself alive?
Or a hardy fighter with enough guts to withstand the roar of a dragon?
Who are you? And what will you be in this ruthless world?
Find out by playing Sentinel.
