Hey there! I’m working on a super hero-themed game for choice script. It takes place in a universe where superheroes and supervillains have been a fact of life since the mid-1900’s. In the near future, the heads of several prominent mega-corporations have shut down America’s democracy and formed a new ruling body known as the Council of Oligarchs; a corrupt, totalitarian and utterly self-serving regime. Heroes divided into two sides: those who became Council-sanctioned Enforcers, gaining wealth and power in exchange for exacting the Council’s twisted sense of justice, and those who refused to abandon the people they’d served, becoming Vigilantes- a label which now carries a death sentence. The Enforcers have the backing of the Council’s vast resources, but the Vigilantes have the hearts and minds of the nation’s people- a powerful enough thing in its own right.
It’s been nearly five years since the Council took power and tensions between these two opposing sides have steadily increased. There’s no telling who’ll come out on top tension devolves into all-out war, but one thing is clear- that time is coming soon.
The PC will be a young powered individual who is thrust into the middle of this conflict and must choose- become a Vigilante and fight to free the people from the Council? Or join the Enforcers in making good the Council’s control of America by wiping out the Vigilantes once and for all? The price of freedom is nothing if not heavy, and it’s up to you to decide if it’s one worth paying.
I’m excited about taking this project as far as I can, but my commitments as a senior in high school (classes, college apps, extracurriculars, etc.) and limited access to a computer I can actually work with choice script on (since from what I’ve gathered, it doesn’t play well with Chrome, and I use a Chromebook,) will severely hamper my progress. I wanted to try and gauge interest to see how much effort I should put into this right now.
So- Comments? Ideas? Am I wasting my time? Any feedback y’all have based off the summary would be much appreciated, and I’ll try to get a demo (or at least a text sample) ready before Thanksgiving.
