(EDIT: Beta test is linked down below!!! Feel free to reply here or message me personally with issues. I tested every option as each chapter went by, but I know I probably misspelled a variable or something somewhere. Thanks for your time!)
Hey there, I go by Wuffles or Taylor Zane. Hope all is well.
I like writing of course and have created a project within choicescript. I’m mainly making my first topic to make sure I’m doing everything on the forum correctly. I’m practically ready to upload but not too sure how everyone does beta testing. I see a lot of COG posts but not a ton from hosted. (Also not going to lie, I’m a bit nervous!)
The project is a bit different than most and also a tad shorter. During production I found game creation almost as fun as writing. So this project may be a bit different than the ones I’ve played on mobile (I’m sure others have made things similar just haven’t seen them yet.)
Anywho, it’s called Trees Don’t Tell and its more of a puzzle type game than reading through a prolonged narrative. I wouldn’t call it horror but it can be a bit spooky. The lore and story of what has happened to your character and what is going on is displayed through items and things you come across in the game. It has a loop action timer so if the player runs out of time during option clicking they are set to start again in the chapter they are in. (Never are they forced back chapters, this is simply to prevent people from clicking every possible action and immediately finding the answer to the puzzle and moving onto the next chapter without truly playing.) The game is simple and short. I’ve had friends play a two chapter demo and one person beat it in like 20 min while the other took 40+. So it could easily be beaten within 2-3 hours but could also take someone longer. Hard to tell, I never made puzzle narrative before :o
Also there is gender choice of course, and effects the story in a small way. I’m really nervous to display it but oh well. Here it is!!
There is an image in the last part of chapter 6 that shows the maze section again. This was supposed to be a place holder for a different image I forgot to add. It has been added to the choicescript but not uploaded to dashingdon yet.)
Please let me know if you seem to get stuck in a section at all. I’ve added a hint system to pop up if you die twice in a chapter and it should help you get through. If you’d like I can add a cheat sheet. The only reason I haven’t yet is because I don’t really know how hard the puzzles will be until people try them. They shouldn’t be too bad so have fun!
Let me know. Also, Hello and good day! ^^
