This is a question I’ve been contemplating to ask for quite a while. Maybe I should explain what the term means in case some of the younger guys missed CYOA.
Choose Your Own Adventure Games are a special type of gamebooks. In their pure form, they don’t have any adventure sheet (stats), not even Boolean variables. They also tend to branch indefinitely, making sure no two replays are quite the same.
Well, that comes at a price, as a single play-through appears to be quite short. I think I’ve heard an interview with the guys from CoG and they emphasized that point.
Sections (labels) are usually longer, decisions are fewer but that could be an incentive to make them crucial.
So far, there is virtually no pure CYOA gamebook app published in ChoiceScript. Do you think there should be?
P.S.: The term CYOA is often used to denote a gamebook (interactive story) but I don’t think it is quite correct unless it matches the description above.
