Wow thanks so much for all the great comments. I’m really excited that people actually like this!
@Mystogan I’ll definitely play around with your suggestion. I’m not really happy with the way the run-off sentences look right now, so I’ll probably try a bunch of things to try and get it to work visually.
@Ramidel I’m glad the Commander Shepard bit made you laugh When I realized that Lt. Commander was the rank that seemed to make the most sense age/experience wise for the story, I knew I had to make Shepard one of the default last names, especially sense most of the other characters’ last names are pop culture shot-outs.
@Luke Thank you so much! I’m glad you liked it.
@FairyGodFeather You are the sweetest! I wanted to add the dossiers to the list when you asked for them, but I wasn’t sure how. I’m a lot more comfortable with the coding now though, so I’ll go back and play around with it. In the meantime, I’ll make it clearer that the “I’m done reading” option only refers to those two dossiers.
@stsword I think it’s going to be a mix of both. I definitely want to include a lot action adventure stuff, since writing car chases sounds fun and everyone has superpowers so you might as well get some cool action set pieces out of it. But at the same time, my goal for the game is for it to be really character driven, both in the past and present segments. At the end of the day, it really is (hopefully) a game about who your character is, who these other characters are, and how you grew and changed because of your time together.
@FalconXCII It makes me so happy that you’re looking forward to what happens next, I can’t wait to write it.
@FcA I have no idea what version of Choicescript I’m using, I am very much not a programmer, so that stuff is all over my head. I’ve never had a problem with a female character being referred to as male, I’ll definitely check it out. As far as the first name options go, there’s only one list of names default names. I just picked names I liked from a list of unisex baby names. Now that I’m more comfortable programming, I can try and make separate lists though.
