My WiP “Your One Moment” takes place around 1800 in Nova Scotia. It did pretty well in @LordIrish 's competition, and I am building it out with a lot of additional story lines.
I want to provide background/historical notes and also some indicators on what additional story lines are coming, and the question is WHERE I put those notes.
I see three options:
Currently, when you complete the game (or it completes you and you are dead), you see an “About this adventure” page with development notes and background information before you get to the “play again” button. Convenient, but may be annoying for folks who don’t want to get down into the weeds.
I could put the development notes and background information in their own .txt files and reference them with a *gosub_scene command from the Stats screen. More clicks, but the information is out of the way for folks who don’t want to be bothered with it.
I could put the information in the credits.txt file, which is a little sparse. But does anyone ever look at that page?
Anybody have suggestions?
