Hi everyone. I’m Samuel Harrison Young, the author of The Magician’s Burden, and the WIPS, Mass Mother Murderer, The Twisted Village, and The Enchanter’s Misery. Over the past couple years, I have been doing a lot of brainstorming for Winter of the Bovine, and now that I’ve submitted TMB for CoG’s contest, I’m going to finally start writing this in earnest.
Live out the life of a dairy cow on a modern, organic farm. Experience a story of struggle, loss, perseverance, hope, and friendship. When you’re caught between the systemic oppression of the farmers, and the wild, ferocious danger of a coyote pack, how will you and your herd survive?
What there will be when the story is finished:
- ~ 75k words
- 3 distinct endings
- over a dozen stats detailing your physical abilities, attributes, and relationships
- interact with a wide cast of compelling characters, including a coywolf, 3 coyotes, 3 humans, a cat, 2 dogs, 4 cows, and more.
Chapter One: 12k
Chapter Two: 11k
Chapter Three: 12k
Chapter Four: 15k
Chapter Five: ?
Playthrough length: 26k
