I started working on my first ever interactive fiction game earlier this year, which I named The Lure of the Gallows. Since this is my first ever game and I’m still not used to the coding involved, I would love and appreciate any feedback or advice that could help me improve the game.
In The Lure of the Gallows, you are the last living seer in Washington Bay after a mysterious fire burns your family home to the ground. As you investigate the circumstances of your family’s murder and delve deeper into the corruption of your hometown, you begin to realize that the secrets of your ancestors may be the only thing keeping your town together…
Since the game is aimed towards young adults, there are no heavy themes that are either violent or sexual. There is some mention of murder since the plot revolves around it, but there are no graphic details! Also, there is no sexual content, but there are brief mentions of promiscuous encounters of one of the main characters who is an incubus (kind of his thing, really).
- Uploaded the next part, Chapter One, which clocks in at 25,153 words
- Updated the game’s official summary to give more surprise to the main characters you counter
If you have any questions you can privately message me on Tumblr or right on the forum. There’s an F.A.Q and extra info on the game’s Tumblr page as well.
