I am in the middle of writing my interactive novel “Trial of the Demon Hunter”. The plot is, essentially, that you are a benevolent bounty hunter who is away on business when a powerful demon destroys your town. When you return, you are met with destruction and wanton death, and vow to banish the demon from whence it came. You then journey, along with your shape shifting boggart companion, to accomplish this endeavor. Along the way, you face increasingly stronger enemies (including 3 witch assassins, a vampire, a mage, several bandits, and a cave troll, among others) before finally confronting the demon you seek. Though you are a demon hunter, you possess no magical power and instead must rely on your physical prowess, cunning and weapons (including a silver chain that paralyzes witches, iron shavings that burn the flesh of evil beings, salt that mesmerizes vampires, and a staff infused with cramp instilling chemicals) to defeat your enemies, or otherwise accomplish your endeavors. Your health, relationship with your boggart, intelligence, courage, stealth, and morality will be tracked, along with your boggart’s health, manna, and transformation abilities. I do not have a demo ready yet, but I have a few rough draft illustrations, and I plan to embellish the books interface as much as possible (the font will be medieval, the back ground will look like lava, the buttons will look like tattered paper with cobwebs, and there will be page-flipping noises.) When I’m finished, it will most likely be about 275k words (so to give you an idea of how big that is, it’d be about 9 times the size of Choice of the Dragon) What do you guys think about this so far?
Here are the links to the rough draft illustrations that I have so far- they still have to colored and digitized, and there are many more illustrations to be done but this will give you an idea.
