Hey forum! I have been wanting to work on a choice script game for some time now. I am an Airborne Ranger qualified Infantry LT in the US Army, while on a recent deployment, I saw some of my soldiers playing choice of games to pass the time and debating the choices they made with their friends. I became interested in the genre and decided to write a sci fi choose your own adventure type game based off of my actual experiences but set in a totally fictional future which I have developed. I just finished working on the prologue and wanted to post it. My concern is that either the concept wont appeal or the background is too complex (I wanted to create a future military with real depth, not just a shallow adaptation of current ranks/structures)
So the story basically begins with you arriving to your new unit, you have to meet your soldiers and design a training cycle. After getting to know your platoon you are deployed to a planet to fight. You have the option to choose how to outfit your unit and the gameplay centers on tactical decision making. The title comes from your rank! Decurion is the rank of Platoon Leaders and your radio call sign (in this case your a member of the Outlaws and the 1st Platoon leader which is called Red, the actual denotes you as the commander of that element)
Please let me know what you guys (or girls of course!) think about it so far and if you would like to see the rest of the story!
I’ve removed the link to the game! I finally found a little bit of time to work on it. I’ll post the link again once I finish the first couple chapters!
