I think Choicescript does have an initial difficulty bump that’s hard to get over, especially for those without any experience of coding. If you persevere it’ll eventually click, especially if you don’t try to do anything too complex to start with.
I was extremely frustrated when I made my first game. I ended up not doing everything I wanted to because I just couldn’t handle certain things. But, with time and practice I’m getting better at coding. There’s still plenty of things I can’t do though.
Maybe Choicescript isn’t for you. Have you tried looking at alternatives?
I’d suggest starting with Twine which is a lot simpler than choicescript and has a WYSIWYG editor. It’ll teach you some techniques in how to create a game, to plan and think logically about it, without having to struggle with learning a coding language. But if you want stats, or anything fancy, you’ll need to start learning code to implement them.
