primoskate52354, The Reader
This is my first text based adventure game, and if it goes well, I might make more. I appreciate constructive criticism, so if you don't like something, tell me how I could fix it.
Just a joke, or something to have fun. First time, so don't be too harsh unless you know how I can improve.

Have you read the first post? I'm in the category of people who have good ideas, but can't write to save my life. I'm trying to share my ideas so someone else can write them. that's sort of why I made this thread.

@mizal This is my very best idea:
An epidemic has spread across the world. Nearly everyone is dead, and the remaining survivors don't know of each other's existence. They must survive their own insanity and PTSD while searching for any other survivors, whom they don't even know of. They must battle hallucinations and the crumbling environment to survive.
You play as several people throughout the story, who's minds have each been broken in a different way. For example, one character you play as in one part of the story may have developed depression, while another you play as at a different time may have developed paranoia. In the epilogue of humanity, they must try to recognize what is real, and what is their own imagination.
The characters may cross paths, only to find themselves separated by collapsing buildings. They could end up traveling through the same environment, though only the reader would have any idea. As the story would be told in a first person perspective, the reader would not be able to know if they can trust what the character they are playing as is describing.
The twist to the story is that you can't save everyone, because the actions taken to prevent one character's death will lead to another character's death, therefore the 'best' ending doesn't exist, or it's different depending on who you want to live the most. The title for the story would be Hear Me, as they just want to prove their existence to each other.
Is that a good enough idea for you?

Who said I needed ideas? I want to be giving them, because I can't write a story.

If you have an Idea, but you can't make a story yourself, post it here! If you need ideas, but don't know what people want, take one from here!
What Makes a Good Story? on 5/3/2017 1:34:11 PM
Whenever I look at a story, I don't look at it the same way as others. Others are thinking "wow, what in depth details and great narrative," whereas I'm thinking things like "what are they even talking about?" or "Why can't they get to the point?"
I guess I just lack the whole imagination aspect of it, nor can I picture what they are saying, and I don't get metaphors or similes. Now that I'm thinking about it, how am I even a reader in the first place?

I don't think I can make a story, nor do I know why some stories become rank 7 hits while others barely pass the rank 4 margin. To everyone's opinion, what is the difference between a good and bad story?
