This project is similar in vein to games like Tropico, or even Choice of Dragon or Vendetta here in CoG, that it’s meant to allow a player to experience… povs of alternative morality.
My co-writer and I are undecided about whether we should simply jump straight into the management aspects or show the slow crawl up the ladder of power. If you’ve played Tropico, black humor can still make for an enjoyable narrative. We moved it to a post-apoc setting to make it less… actionable, and because a setting similar to Fallout lends itself more towards unorthodox attempts at gaining power. So crazy it just might work! isn’t too far-fetched.
Ideally, though there may be different routes for replayability, we’d like to offer the player the chance to see how he or she ‘grows’ from a child who clings to certain principles, to -
a) a good person who does horrible things for what’s hoped are good reasons
aka an Enlightened Dictator
b) a horrible person who does good things for horrible reasons
aka a Villain with Good Publicity
c) a horrible person who does horrible things for horrible reasons
aka The Evil Overlord
For now, we’d deeply appreciate if you’d care to have a look at the intro.
Seriously, please, I keep getting 504 gateway errors, so I do not know if it’s even functioning.
Also, what font is that which Choicescript is using by default? Any way to insert special characters, such as ♪♫ into the basic text used by the script? I was getting ?? instead from saving in ANSI, but now that I’ve saved and uploaded in Unicode, it’s still a mystery if it’s working.
