#1

At long last, the game that, like, thirty people have been waiting for…

… is finished!

If you would like to participate in the beta testing, just message me or reply here saying you want to and I’ll respond in a message with what I’m hoping to find out, the link to the beta, what I want feedback on, and my appreciation for taking time out of your lives to contribute to testing my gamebook!

Seriously, it means/would mean a lot to me! (:


Welcome to the island of Primeo! I’m going to be honest, it isn’t all that exciting here. At least not until you are conscripted into the service of a mysterious Emperor that no one has ever heard of, before! There are many paths to greatness, which will you walk?

In The Paths to Greatness,:

  • Learn one of four stat specialties.
  • Meet different characters with unique personalities and reactions.
  • Play as gay, straight, bi, aromantic, or asexual.
  • Have the option of being either a man or a woman.
  • Find love or walk your own path.
  • Take fate into your own hands with one of 15+ endings that change based on the choices you have made.

Approximate word count (I used the word counter in NotePad++ and figured that I would subtract ten percent to account for code): ~168,458 or just round to ~168,460.


HOW THIS WILL WORK (PLEASE READ):

Each round will last for one week after I send the link to people or however long it takes them to respond to me less than a week. After a week, I will assume they just got busy and couldn’t give feedback. That’s fine, but I will move on to the next person on my list for the following round. I am going to cap the amount of testers at 15 for now – it might be more or less depending on who responds.

Each new link will be an edit of the previous round’s link.

Also please respond in a timely manner! Thanks again!

People I have messaged/that have messaged me about it (this is just for my own personal record-keeping, if you want me to remove your username just tell me):
