Hey everyone! My name is Amy and for the past 10 months, my friends and I have been working on a game I'd like to present here.Unwritten: How will your story end? is a F2P mobile game that features a narrative game with interactive elements and choice-based gameplay that DOES make a difference! We're hoping to bring something new to the world of interactive fiction/visual novel games, be it through the beautiful art, unique personalities in each series, or compelling storytelling that combines different elements to create a truly exciting narrative. The series will be diverse with genres which range from modern love and romance to mystery, fantasy, horror, comedy, drama…The first four series of the game have already been announced! Those are: Second Society (a paranormal/vampire story), Triple Scoop (a high school comedy setting), Gears of Snow and Cinders (a very cool fantasy/forbidden love series) and Business with Pleasure (set in a steamy, passionate location of a popular club!) The game will be released very soon, both on Google Play and App Store! While we're waiting for the release, would love to get any questions and comments, both here and in our official subreddit, where more details about the game are waiting for you! In the meantime, I'm happy to introduce the characters from the series that will be first released - Business with Pleasure!Everyone, meet Camila and Ignasi: Let me know what you think, and thanks in advance!
Hello everyone! After having to drop out of last Wizard Jam due to unforeseen circumstances, I've been running without a goal for the last month or so. That's why I'm excited to detail a new project, which I'm tentatively calling "The Thumbs Project." Essentially, I'm going to be writing one short interactive story a week, each one based off of a title from Idle Thumbs. There are a couple of reasons I'm doing this: I need practice writing on a deadline, and what better deadline to practice than weekly installments? I need more practice with alternative forms of interactive fiction besides the traditional choose-your-own adventure format, and while there's definitely going to be plenty of those, I'm looking to try and broaden my horizons. Like I hinted at earlier, I felt bad about not being able to complete anything for Wizard Jam, even though I really like the idea of basing games off of Thumbs titles (There's so many good ones!) Right now, the most I can commit to is the first fifty episodes. Even then, that's a whole year of making fun-sized IF, assuming I manage to get it together to put one out every week. If I can do it, and I'm enjoying doing it, we might see about doing more, but right now that's too far in the future to get excited about. What do you guys think? Any questions or advice? Criticism is always appreciated. If you're interested, the first game Let the Games Begin will be going up on my itch.io page tomorrow afternoon (EST) here https://technomagie.itch.io
Ben X posted a topic in Video GamingAny IF/TA engine recommendations? I'm pretty sure someone happened to list 3 or 4 a while back but I can't find that post for the life of me. My intent to expand on the mini Choose Your Own Adventure I wrote for the 2nd (I think, the one that never happened) Thumbs Journal stumbled a bit when I started getting distracted by doing it as a website and getting collaborators in. So I'm hoping to pick the easiest way of writing it and just doing it for fun whether it works out or not. I haven't decided whether to go for a more IF feel or a proper text adventure yet. I'm leaning towards the former as all I really want to do is write silly bullshit. If I want to start mucking about with inventories and stuff I may as well make an AGS game... EDIT: another, Twine-specific, thread here
