Stuck in a Tragedy Game idea (small update in informations)

Here is the summary for the game: (Feel free to add your own ideas)

(To those who decided to leave right now, I thank you for your attention and goodbye! And those who stayed, thank you and let’s continue on.)

I am truly sorry about not posting any demo but as I have previously mentioned coding and me are not in a good relationship as of yet.

But maybe the next time you see this game there would be a demo to play so stay positive. :slight_smile:

I don’t want anybody to be sad about this. I’ve learnt my lesson and got some help.

In case you came here out of boredom here is a link to my imagine/one-shots book with Romeo&Juliet characters.

My game would have been about an imagine I wrote but you still have to wait to read it until I find my long lost coding skills.

I’ll put the first chapter’s link for the wp book below, it includes the request forms and the characters I make imagines/one-shots for.

If I am correct you can continue looking at the other chapters as well from there.

Very important question!

So as you know in the game you got to travel to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

When I first decided to make this game, I had an idea that I would be happy if it was possible.

There are many adaptations of this tragic play. Musicals, films you name it.

Therefore I want to make it possible to travel to more than one adaptation.

According to what MC is reading/watching.

I’de like to include at least 2 musicals and a film.

I’m afraid that this would result in a big branch, because in some cases not just appereances but the personalities differ.

My question is that do you think that this is possible to do at the begining of the game?

Or should it be something like how MC changes their appereance?

I mean something like:

You looked at the man standing in front of you. Unlike the actor he was portrayed by he had…

Choice: long curly blond hair which reached his shoulder blades.

Choice: shoulder-length straight dark brown hair.

Choice: shorter black hair with a silver streak.


I know you said that you aren’t very good in coding, but with lots of trial and error and lots of practice I’m sure you’ll be able to get the hang of it :grinning: The plot itself is interesting, but if someone else were to write the story it might come out differently from what you were thinking and their plot decisions might not line up with yours. Perhaps it would be easier to write the story yourself? I hope I didn’t come off as rude or anything!


No, you didn’t come of as rude at all. Honestly this was what I thought as well when I decided to post this topic here.

Well, I actually tried choicescript at some point but it didn’t work out well.

but if someone else were to write the story it might come out differently from what you were thinking and their plot decisions might not line up with yours.

What I am hoping for is to find somebody who is able to cooperate with me. Well, they might think up something I wouldn’t have dreamt of writing, looking at this in a different perspective may come in handy.

I guess another try with choicescript wouldn’t hurt though. :slight_smile:


I know what you mean. I’ve tried it as well and honestly, I don’t understand the majority of it.

Coding makes the progress of the actual story slower than I’d like and it becomes tedious and difficult to keep up.

I can’t help out, but I hope you find someone willing to take on your project. If nothing else, there is someone developing a visual coder that could help out. Haven’t used it myself yet since I’m waiting for it to be completed, but it’s an option.

If you really want it written, just keep plugging away at doing ChoiceScript. It is daunting as all get out for a noob, but I have been slowly working on it and with some pain, some patience, and a buttload of help from the people posting in my help request thread, it is starting to come together in my brain. Not everything, but the basics of variables, choices, indentations and so on. Unless you are worried about the contest, there is no rush so take it easy and do just a little every day or week.

If you are trying to enter, well, then you gotta get in gear! Less than six months to deadline!

Thanks for responding! The different perspective part is understandable, and that’s great that you’re gonna have another go at choicescript. The beginning of coding is definitely the toughest part, but I’m sure you’ll do great!!

I look forward to your story when it comes out! :grin:

Thank you for your kind words. :slight_smile:

Would you please tell me about that visual coder?

Maybe a link would be nice.

No problem. :slight_smile:

So I looked at choice script just yeterday to see if it is as difficult as I remember it to be, and I found a problem which of course could be solved.

I don’t have firefox on any of my devices and ghe last time I downloaded it on my computer it got viruses.

At the end my uncle had to delete everything from my computer and then put them on again with protection this time.

Does choicescript work on other browsers?

Because if it does then I could be able to try it out (for real) .

Cside web is really easy to use.

Good to know. Do I have to download it from somewhere?

Nghmm… in term of testing your early game, firefox is mandatory (chrome and safari won’t work. IDK about Opera, tho) :thinking:

However, there’s this coding tool CS-IDE which have a feature that allows you to “preview” whatever you have write and code so far.

Check out the master list of links for it (and other various tutorials you might interested)

Thank you. This is very helpful. :slight_smile:
