I'm sorry, I'm just not perverted enough to follow your line of thinking.

Or to tell the truth, I'm not sorry.

Thank you! I wish I could write that fast. Right now I'm aiming for just about one chapter a week, but with a year there shouldn't be a problem even if I can't stay motivated the entire time. I'll post regular updates here to help me stay focused.

Thanks for the advice, I'm glad you think it has potential.  BUt I've experimented with the story editor enough to know the basics, and it's just a matter of writing it now. The plot is one that already had multiple outcomes from the same start, so I start off with an easy way to fit it to the CYOA format even being new to it.

When I finish Chapter 1, which should be by next week, I'll post it in here if anyone wants to see how I'm handling the first part (everything up to the time jump) and give more advice while it's in early stages.

The story won't have any trouble reaching 100k if I can do it fully as I envision, the only limitation is my time and motivation. There is a lot to explore in Sagewind, or in the galaxy itself if you choose to follow Nova off planet, plus the events of the war.

Thanks for the ideas, but when the time rewind occurs the player and character both have a clear understanding of what's going on and their goals. There are scenes in the first Chapter that you will revisit with more options once this happens.

My original plot had Sundown making multiple time jumps and trying different things, that's not necessary here since all options will be available to the player to explore from the beginning, but altogether it's still a novel length story that will just be told in parts for the CYOA format.

Ok let me make it clear, it's not a furry porn game. This is an alien race with its own culture that happens to be feline in nature, not just sexy cat people. They're similar to bipedal lynxes and have heightened senses, but they're not just humans with fur. (Females don't even have noticeable breasts, which is the real furry test.)

I loved Life is Strange too, but time travel isn't going to be a big part of the gameplay, you go back to a fixed point and the puzzle is in the nature of the story itself in figuring out the right paths.

I"m trying this for the 100k war on intfiction story. I'm new to CYOAs but I've outlined this idea as a novel a couple of times before and would like to know if anyone here thinks it has potential:

On the planet Sagewind, the native feline race called the Sjades live in their traditional settlements, while Humans have built spaceports and cities. The two races live side by side by rarely interact. Sundown is a Sjade who was horribly burned and injured as a child in a conflict between tribes that killed his parents, and Nova is one of the daughters of the family that took him in.

Against all odds they fall in love in their teens and have a romance, which is cut short by Nova being selected by the Humans to recieve a Human education and go into space. Three years go by with only the brief messages that can be sent between planets, and then just like that he learns she's died in a far off war.

Nova's body is shipped back for a traditional funeral, and afterwards in mourning Sundown seeks the advice of a shaman and goes on a spirit journey, where he is offered a chance to go back and change the past. Follow her into space or convince her to stay there on Sagewind, there will be many paths but the question is how long can the lovers dodge fate?
