Some preamble before we begin
What will you read doesn’t represent the final version that will be submitted. Both this thread and the WIP might change, might not.
So, here goes nothing.
Wild Journey is a text-RPG with a style not far from those of FF Classics, Lone Wolf, CYOA, and similar descendants. This is a rewrite of my old WIPs Hikayat: Of Black Eye and Untitled Medieval-Fantasy RPG.
For those who are familiar with the old WIP
I’m sorry! A big apology from me!
I’ve always wanted to write an attention-grabbing story with an active thread that pitches a lot of views, but never managed to actually write one. To be honest, I was kinda sad at that time that I’ve gone hiatus for a super long time.
However, I can’t keep my mind off of this. This story, this world, had become my passion project that leaving it out will simply haunt me back in the future. So, here it is, the “remastered” version of my old WIP! tadaa
If I’m allowed to be selfish, let’s start anew. Thank you for the feedback you left in previous WIPs, but they’ll be likely irrelevant at here. Any plans I’ve planned in those old threads will also be obsolete. I’d like to open a new clean page and start again from the beginning.
Don’t worry, though a lot has been changed, the core story is the same: an adventure rpg in a science-fantasy world. There is still this pseudo-hegemonic-Roman-Empire, and the general intro is “voyage to the New Land.”
Once again, a big apology from me, and thanks for reading this until the end!
The plan going forward
With experience, I’ve learned that trying to put a regular update would burn me out without anything productive to give.
As such, I’ll be treating this like a display in a museum.
One at a time, I’ll be here updating things and replying to comments. When I’m off, I’ll work on the WiP alone in my room, with a cup of choco milk and a pack of biscuits (whenever available. Otherwise, just a jug of water should do it).
I might also update the worldanvil page one-off (yep, there’s also the wiki worldanvil page!), though I’m not going to post its updates in this forum. So, be sure to follow my world page, there! Or simply ask me here, that’s fine too.
However, as visitors, you guys can freely enter and leave the museum: leave comments, argue with others, and play the available WiP! Simple as that!
I can’t promise you regular updates, nor promise you to keep the thread alive to avoid auto-lockdown timer. But as long as I can still type on my keyboard – at least – I’ll keep working on this in my free time.
But enough with the sentimentals!
This first post is the place where you can see the update progress and changelogs, as well as the link to the WiP. Perfect for those who just want to jump right in.
The next post, one down below, is the main post where a detailed summary is available. I might also do dev-blog-style posts that detail certain aspects of content or my reasoning on why I do stuff the way I do.
( I’m rewriting significant portion of the demo. You might want to hold off on giving feedback for now)
