Showing what the player has spoken

I prefer it personally. I don’t always play games straight through, so a reminder or reiteration of whatever choice I may have made several hours ago is helpful. I did get called out for doing exactly this on my wip, so I’ve been trying to rephrase/expand upon the choice just made rather than restating it, but both styles have their merits.

I like the way Wayhaven handles it; the choice will just have quote of what the MC says, and then the next page will work the quote into a full sentence with more description. For example (from TWC demo):


  • “Depends on how gruesome the murder is.”

“Depends on how gruesome the murder is,” I reply, shoving my hands deeper into my pockets.
