I’ve begun work on my new game Tower of Babylon. However it’s my first time working on ChoiceScript or making an hosted game story, so there’s a lot of things that aren’t defined yet and i would like to know opinions from people with experience on this area.
The summary of the story it’s something like this:
Do you know what happens when people die?
That’s a question mankind is trying to solve as long as it exists, however no one from the world of the living knows the true answer that lies ahead.
The only way to find out the truth is by dying, which is what will happen to you (the MC of the story), there you were living you’re ordinary life when something suddenly happens!
An accident, a murder or should i include suicide as a death cause?
Anyway, the point is that you died and the instant it occurs, you’re right in front of an huge tower, you will find out that you died and you’re in purgatory (so you’re a ghost in a nutshell), however if you reach the top of the tower you may go to heaven or you can reincarnate to the world of the living again, BUT the tower has many dangers inside and if you die (again) you will go to hell enjoying free torture service for all eternity (Yikes).
The only to avoid that is to develop abilities that will help you survive in the tower, you will meet allies, enemies, plotwist and if i get inspiration, there shall be le sweet sweet romance.
That’s pretty much from my raw idea, any opinions critics and other inovations for the game will be deply appreciated.
Hi fellas, i haven’t done much progress since the last post, 'cause i had things to do during this week, however, i’ll show you guys how the stats screen will be in a nutshell.
Gender: Male or Female (no helicopters, sorry)
Appearance: (Hair style and color), (eye color), (race/skin)
Cause of death: (Ex: Watched “Dragonball Evolution”) <— Just kidding, but you get the gist.
Impulsive: 50% | Calculated: 50% Berserk: 50% | Skill: 50% Carefree: 50% | Vigilant: 50%
Compassionate: 50% | Drifter: 50%
Note: The “PERSONALITY” and “MASTERY” will also influence the “ABILITIES” stats (ex: “Impulsive” will increase “strength” and “willpower”, if you choose “Unarmed Mastery” it will icrease “strength”, “agility”, etc).
Besides this i’m considering putting a stat called “Awakened”, now, you might ask “What does that stat do?”… Go on, ask!!
Now seriously, the “Awakened” it’s something like a contract that you form with a demon (ex: Belzebub) OR an angel (ex: Michael), it will be like a special power that will be gained depending on your personality, this is something that i’m still undecided if i should put it or not.
And so far that’s pretty much all i got, the story is still in progress but it will be done soon, i hope… maybe.
With your support and ideas, i will be able to add or change some stuff in the stats that i didn’t considered it, so don’t forget, critics, opinions, anything you want, please reply.
Thank you all, have a nice day!
Hello, hello! How’s it going everyone?
I need help with something about the choicescript, and to explain i will have to spoil a tiny little bit about the game story, so here’s the thing:
In the game you will have a younger brother or sister (gender to your choice) and you can chose their name, the problem is, how do i put a relationship bar on the stat screen that will show the chosen name of the sibling.
I understand to some of you this may be a super easy task, however i personally am below to amateur when it comes to choicescript, so… Yeah, that’s pretty much it, the story is still on it’s early stages, however i’m planning on putting a demo on the forum (if i figure how to do it), so that you guys can enjoy the beggining and giving your opinions, ideas, critics, etc etc.
Thank you all in advance and prepare to get spooky

Ok, SO! This is it…This is FUCKING… IT!
After a gazilion years, I finally had the cojones to grab this project that I started at…*GASP 2 years already?! Jesus Christ, I’m lazy as balls.
Anywho, I finally continued on working on this project again and today I shall upload my first version of this WIP, It’s not much, It’s not even the finished Prologue, however I think a solid and functional “not much”.
If I had to compare this to a boat, this would be the first nail to make the boat (it’s still a huge progress for me ok?)
The reason I have for only updating something now is that, well… I kinda dropped this project and just let it stand there in the dust. Because personally I prefer to read than to write and I’m not a guy with a plan, i’m just winging when I want.
And that’s how I will be in the future, not gonna lie on that, however, I am enjoying writing this, so without further ado…
TA DAAAA! The WIP link at last, yay!
Please read the WIP, tell me your thoughts in the comments, liked or not, grammar mistakes, opinions for the story. I want EVERYTHING!
Thank you all for your support and until the next update! See ya!
