Re: Veterans on writing paths

TL;DR Use a chart to map the various story paths. It might be better to write the story, pause whenever there's a chance for branching, write out the different branch options, pick one then continue writing that path until you come to another good stopping point. This way you at least have the other...

Re: Software for drafting plot branches (or general tips)?

When dealing with branches I utilize flowchart programs which are usually free. The one I'm currently loving on is called yEd: http://www.yworks.com/en/products_yed_about.html I like it because I can highlight things like triggering a plot flag or checking for a plot flag or adding a variable. Examp...

Re: Writing vs. Drawing

Physical comfort tends to color my situation. I work an office job and the chair is okay. I can write a lot at work (since it is my job). At home I write less because I don't really have comfortable seating in a place that would free me from distraction. Someday that'll change. Once I can afford the...

@ludeshka: Thank you very much for the feedback. I'm glad you liked it and yes, I can totally agree with your sentiments about player involvement. My current project does have more of a path like structure. (I've got my diagrams all set up.) @fantasygeeki: Thank you for playing! :) @MiSi: Thank you....

Re: Line of Heroes [GxB][Arabian Night Fantasy]

@veela: Thanks so much for playing. Lucios seems to be pretty popular with the ladies. :wink: And Rama is fun to write. @GreyLadyHelenaR: D'aw thanks. Glad you enjoyed it so much. (Yes, it's my first game but I do a lot of visual storytelling.) Lucios I think is a bit more...innocent than Zevran. ;)...

Re: Line of Heroes [GxB][Arabian Night Fantasy]

Thanks so much for the feedback and playing. I'm glad you enjoyed it. My only complaint with him is that I still don't know why he did what he did -- choosing to travel with Mara, helping her gather the seals, and what his uh 'secret oath' is. Until the very end, it seemed like he had his own plans ...

Re: Line of Heroes [GxB][Arabian Night Fantasy]

Wow, this game was so original. It would do well as a roleplaying game I think, or something Zelda-esque. I felt bad for Shamir when Mara was mean to him, he didn't even do anything wrong half the time xD But yeah, awesome game, keep up the good work n___n O____O You guessed my deep dark secret. It...

Re: (DEMO)Line of Heroes [GxB, Arabian Nights Fantasy]

HUZZAH. I've finished my ending CGs. I'm currently uploading the release game. ._. It's bigger than I though it'd be. Next project won't be nearly this big.

Anyway, I'll update this topic again once the file is uploaded. :D

EDIT: Uploaded and FINISHED. :D
