hey there to yall! My name's Rory, and I am a blind person. I hope to write some very cool stories, I've always wanted to make this sort of thing, and by the looks of it so far it's all pretty accessible, which is awesome! I was thinking of making a story where you play as a mischievous household dog who just can't stop going over to the fridge and cupboards for a sniff. But you'll find about that when it get published. anyway, tried out a storygame this morning and immediately I am adicted these things. hope to make some cool stories soon, Rory.
Ok, hi all. I'm back again to ask a question. How do I make a random variable, for example between 1 and 5? This random variable will define if the dog in my game needs to do something, but that doesn't matter. Just if someone could tell me what buttons I'd need to click, that would be cool. Thanks in advance!
Hi! This article may be helpful http://chooseyourstory.com/help/articles/article.aspx?ArticleId=14. You should take a look at the 'Help & Info' section of the site if you haven't already, there are other articles that can help you as you go along.
Hey Rory, can't wait to read something of yours...
Although Fantasy is usually my choice, I would give your storygames a try!
hi! just letting you all know I figured out within minutes of looking at the article after returning to the site; seems my past self was a little half-witted :)
but anyway, I'm not working on the dog game anymore but I am gonna do a scifi one. if anyone could help with proofreading that would be much appreciated! just let me know here.
Welcome and good luck on your first story-game.
I just found a small accessibility issue with the site:
the buttons on the link for variable changes, restrictions and item drops aren't labeled.
Is there a constistancy to which of the buttons they are? for example, is it the first button, the third to last, when that little menu starts?
No, but adding title and alt text to those is planned for the next update.
You seem like a cute, spirited person. I want to see the cute, spirited story you have in the works as well! Welcome to this little cesspool! There's lots of things to do!
ok, I'll put this on the requests board. thanks for telling me! currently they're all called "submit" which is kind of funny :)
