Hi, I’m thinking about doing my first choice script game which may turn out very dark.
Possible themes for my game are going to be mental health issues which I think are underrepresented in most aspects of life, poverty, depression, which is a mental health issue but this would be a major theme throughout, discrimination and suicide. (Possibly trans too).
Not exactly cheering but I wanted to make an emotional story which immerses the reader within the storytelling and really just emphasis how some people see the world differently and I wish to represent this through their perspective, while raising lots of issues and challenging political perspectives. I also know that you shouldn’t have too much control over the story but perhaps this could be put to effect through the use of going on a downward spiral and you can’t do much to escape; making the reader feel desperate and connect to the character and understand what their going through.
What do you think about it? Would it be too dark? Would you want to read it? Like to see anything in it?
