CHAPTER 5 is out

Pushed is a thriller, romance where you live in a big slump after your best friend died a few months ago. With evidence of being pushed, everyone thinks it was a suicide… Except you.

You decide to head to you and your best friend’s favorite spot. While there you accidentally switch computers with someone and realize that he was accepted into a top rated spy school.

The best part? They didn’t include their gender or what they looked like. So you can easily take his spot… Right? :wink: You decide going to this school would be best for you. You can probably find out who took your best friends life :hocho:, OR will you choose to let go of the past and actually become a spy? :scream:


  • Play Male or Female
  • Find who pushed your best friend.
  • Find love on the way :heart:
  • Feel betrayal from people you thought you loved.
  • Find out how your Mother passed away
  • 2 twist endings

The story sounds great and I’ve liked the writing so far, but I wasn’t really able to go far because of this:

Well, I’ve read through and I can say this looks good so far, and your work has potential.

These are some bugs, suggestions, and stuff I marked out from reading.

Summary

Firstly, this comes up when I’m done choosing a name as a guy. I end up being taken to the name options for females.

Also, I would like to suggest that you put notes like the one where you talk about being a beginner right before the choices, that way it isn’t confusing and doesn’t break immersion.

Example:
Author’s Note: I’m still a beginner, but the non-binary gender option will be available later.

There are many places where you just suddenly switch from third-person to first-person speech and switch back.

Lastly, I noticed this while I was playing as a guy.

I liked the premise of the sorry and its direction as an individual going undercover in a school that teaches people to go undercover. Good luck on your future writing endeavors.

Chapter 2 is out!
Hope you guys enjoy it! :partying_face:

*You will probably hate Jacob after this… :smirk:
I’ll be taking a very very short break just one day honestly. I’ll spend most of it planning :zzz:

Sneak peak of chapter 3

You will be on the airplane for almost all of chapter 3 arguing with a woman sitting next to you. I plan to make that chapter have lots of humor and comedy in it. The woman that sits next to you in the airplane is a vital character.

And then the chapter after that will be kinda be like a ‘welcome/back to school’
ifykyk it will be inspired by… @HannahPS beginning of creme de la creme and the beginning of Paranormal preparatory school! yk if you’ve played it. :smirk:

Hey! Had a read through!

Things that bumped me:

  • Spelling and grammar was rough – might be a good idea to have someone you trust have a read through and make line edits, or perhaps check out tools like Grammarly. In the long-term, you’re going to want to read up on sentence construction and punctuation and do lots of practice so that it becomes natural.
  • The biggest grammar issue was the mix-up of 1st and 2nd tense – sometimes the POV character introduces themselves as “I” and sometimes as “you” within the narration, e.g. “You wake up with my heart pounding”.

Things I liked:

  • Lots of interesting customisation. I’d want to see these choices become significant later in the story and not just be cosmetic.
  • Lots of focus on character relationships. Character relationships are storytelling.
  • You have a preset personality for the main character – this can make for really interesting, specific stories from a strong point of view if you lean into it and make it more explicit. This is most apparent with the first interaction with Cameron, where the main character is directly stated to find him attractive and every choice is locked into awkward self-consciousness. Lean into it and make it clear.

I’m always rushing to get these chapters done…:joy: but thanks alot for the feedback. I also just realized you are so right about spelling and grammar especially with those 1st and 2nd tense.
I made a thriller which is based on this awhile ago.

But without the whole spy thing, and I wanted to copy and paste some of it in there…yep my lazyass. But i’m always looking for more spelling and grammar errors. tysm :smile: @will

(just went on grammarly correct 343924839 errors!!! ty again)

My Game crashed with an Intention error in the first Seconds option in the first choice of the library Scene.

I must say I really did not understand how I could swap Laptops with the other Guy. I never went near him.

Since the game crashed shortly after the beginning I can not really say much about the game. But the premise Sounds interesting.

EDIT: fixed! and the just added a bit more understanding to the laptop scene! :grin:
