Julia Caesar! My first ever choice game, started because of a comment someone else made on the forum. I had such good intentions of actually finishing it. I have a second vignette written up for it and a few other plans jotted down. It was going to chart the life of Julia Caesar and her best friend, Marcia Anthonette, as Julia rose to power to rule the city. And their adventures included dealing with Hannah Bell’s attempted invasion, Julia’s jealous ex-best friend Junia Brutus, an invasion of Goths, and they met with Joan of the Arc, and helped her build a big boat to survive a flood. There was much silliness planned out. I doubt I’ll continue it now though.
I learned so much when writing it though. I remember my head hurting from trying to work out ifs, they just didn’t make any sort of sense to me. I think there’s a single section where multiple ifs matter and that plagued me for ages. It’s so simple now, thinking back on it but I just couldn’t work it out. I also couldn’t work out how to implement stats that I liked either.
Scales&Tales which I have a lot more written for than ever actually went up on the web. It’s a tangle of plots though, surrounding you raising a baby dragon, dealing with the aftermath of being jilted at the altar, finding your purpose in life, and possibly finding romance. While I know everything’s that going on, alas, writing it down’s a different problem. I could tell you all about it! I do want to eventually get back and write Scales&Tales.
Santa Claus! Just a silly thing I wrote where you become Santa Claus, and need to deal with a punning reindeer, elvish trade unions, snowmen, and other silliness. I’d really need a co-writer to get it finished, but no one else was interested.
PSI: Psychic Student Investigates! - It’s a game set in the future, with an amnesiac hero, who has psychic powers. They need to discover their past, while also unravelling various supernatural mysteries surrounding them. I’d planned it as episodic with a bunch of self-contained vignettes, and one over-arching storyline. I love the characters and I love the world.
I have a ridiculous amount of this plotted out. I have two of the vignettes almost done. But I’m terrible at actually completing projects. This is another one I do want to finish.
Seeking Snow - This one’s another that I have the plotlines mostly mapped out and would just need to actually do the hard work of writing the game. Snow White’s gone missing, you’re from another Kingdom, and have arrived in order to try and find her. There’s a number of other fairy tale characters you come across in your quest, all of whom have their own little stories to investigate. It draws inspiration from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Snow White Rose Red, Donkeyskin, Goldilocks, and Little Red Riding Hood.
I’ve also a few other projects. Actually I could dig out my notebooks and likely be surprised by how many ideas are there. Ideas are easy.
