AppDude27, The Dramatist
I'm AppDude27, nice to meet you!
I am a Programmer and Video Game Developer!
Some people on here have been questioning me about the current status of MyVacation. I have some good news to share regarding the game. Over the last year, I have been diligently writing/programming/designing/animating a full fledged MyVacation video game!
I plan to release the game for Steam PC/Mac. Console releases are soon following. Thank you for your continued patience!
To see all My Vacation updates, head over to my facebook page:
Four little mice went to search for some cheese, one got trapped, and then there were three.
Three little mice were playing with glue, one got a little too sticky, and then there were two.
Two little mice were on the run. Kitty wouldn't play nice, so then there was one.
One little mouse left all alone. He choked himself, and then there were none.
4 Little Mice is a Choose Your Own Adventure Poem that I wrote over the course of several weeks. The story tells a tale of love, companionship, sacrifice, and more.
-Based on Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None", but with a furry little twist!
-The butterfly effect has never been more important! Each and every choice you make could have drastic consequences!
-With over 10+ endings, you'll definitely be coming back for more.
-Fixed a bug that brought certain mice back to life.
-Fixed a bug that prevented player from progressing. (Special thanks to Will11 and Plaacchei.)
Why does your Composition and Rhetoric Professor have to assign a 10 page paper due by the end of the week at midnight?
Of course, you procrastinate your way through the week to Friday night. It's 7 o'clock PM. Only 5 hours until the paper is due. No exceptions!
You open your laptop and begin typing...until the power goes out.
Adventure your way through strict RA's, bug infestations, wild frat parties, and more in this all new storygame!
-Butterfly effect decisions that will affect choices later on in the story.
-Is that item worth taking? Or is it better left where it is?
-Multiple endings and even a "secret ending".
-See all your choices in the end.
Will you submit your paper in time before midnight?
Version 1.5 Updates:
+Fixed more grammar
+Updated the Score variable. It will now display how many pages you wrote in the comments!
You just finished eating dinner, and now you have the poops! Time to go to the bathroom!
You walk along inside, shut the door, and lock it.
As you begin to sit on the toilet, you see massive spider on the countertop.
In this horrifying story game, play the role of a person just trying to use the toilet, while at the same time, killing an evil spider.
-Tons of endings leaving you or the spider in a better (or worse) condition than when you started.
-Multiple items to choose from! Protect yourself from the attacks with each new acquired object.
-Can you survive?
This is a shorter story than my usual, run of the mill, adventure stories. If you're looking for something that isn't too long to commit to, then you will love this storygame.
Warning: You may experience strange tingling sensations on your skin after reading this story. Do not read this story if you have a fear of spiders. No spiders were harmed in the making of this story.
Welcome to Paradise!
MyVacation is a "Vacation Sim" set on a fictional Island Resort. Come on in and stay as long as you like!
From swimming at the pool, to relaxing on the beach, there's always something to do here on the island.
Your Study Abroad Program allows you to research anything you want on the island. Maybe you can unlock Paradise Place's secrets?
Get Resort jobs like Bar Server, Lifeguard, Pirate, and more!
Collect items, make friends, and even embark on breakthrough expeditions!
I am in the process of releasing MyVacation as a standalone video game soon. In the meantime, here is the original story game. Thanks for supporting my game!
In Studio 5, you play the role of a film producer named John, who must find out why two of Hollywood's most famous celebrities have been brutally murdered right before your very eyes! Interrogate suspects, collect evidence, and solve puzzles as you try to figure out who did it!
Update 1.2: Fixed more grammar issues and improved upon the beginning of the story. John, Smith, Darlene, and Jim all have their own back story now, which may clear up any confusion about their characters.
It was supposed to be your typical walk home from school. Take the shortcut through the woods. How difficult can that be, right?
In this horrifying storygame, play the role of an adventurous teenage student, just trying to get home from school.
Please DO NOT post your choices in the comments. Don't ruin the story for everyone else! If you would like to talk about the story, please refer to my forum posting, located in "The Parlor Room" section of the forums. Thank you!
-Butterfly effect choices that can change the course of what happens.
-Will that item really be worth taking? Or will it hinder you later...
-Discover clues in your environment to help you survive the walk home.
-View all your choices in the end.
-This is a MAJOR story re-working. If you have previously played The Shortcut Home, then consider playing it again! Major story backgrounds, characters, and information has been updated and changed. Any plot holes and story lore has been resolved. This may be the biggest Shortcut Home update yet!
-Fixed minor grammatical errors.
In this intense sequel to the original hit "Before Midnight" starring YOU, go back to Bridgeport University and get yourself through one night of madness!
Your biology lab report is due by midnight. Unfortunately, you procrastinated. Can you break your way into the science lab, avoid distractions, not get caught, AND turn in your lab report in on time?
"I think we need to break up."
What would you do if the one you loved told you that they no longer loved you?
Breaking Hearts is a CYS that centers around heart break between two people that are trying to figure out what to do with their relationship and their lives.

Well guess what?
Today is the day.
Today is the day that YOU TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE.
Welcome to "Lose it ALL" the latest Storygame by AppDude27.
Here is a word from our creator:
"I wanted to write a storygame that would help inspire people to live more healthy, fit, and active lifestyles. Trust me, it's so hard. I'm battling obesity myself!
By creating a game that revolved around living a healthier lifestyle, I thought that I could make it into an adventure of sorts. Something where the player can feel that their in-game choices are not only affecting their in-game character, but also their real life counterparts.
Hope you have fun."
IN GAME FEATURES!

Recent PostsAlias the Variable Names on 6/2/2019 6:42:51 PM
I was wondering if we could have a new parameter on the variables screen called "Alias".
If a variable name for example is "RELJAKE" = "Relationship with Jake".
Instead of putting Relationship with Jake: %%RELJAKE%% on every page, why not just allow me to fill in an "alias" for it that replaces the variable's name with the alias inside the story?
Set "Display on Page" = true and viola!
There you have it. Variable aliases.
Stories with LGBT characters? on 6/2/2019 6:23:32 PM
My story, Before Midnight, allows you to romance a male character. The game does not assume the reader's gender. I wrote it that way so that Nick could either be a friend in the end OR a potential romance option. Feel free to check it out!
I am also in the process of writing two LGBT... stories. I think having more representation/diversity on the site is great!

What's your favourite movie / tv show and why? on 3/13/2019 6:38:44 PM
1. 50 First Dates - I just loved the premise and how it also serves as a minor educational movie on the psychology of the brain.
2. Clue - For some reason, I just always loved this movie.
3. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 1/2 - these movies remind me of my family structure a lot. I always compare my family to these movies.
1. Lost - I was always a huge fan growing up
2. Desperate Housewives - I just loved the drama of the show and the characters. I feel like the themes were also ahead of their time.
3. Ugly Betty - this is my guilty pleasure show. I love America Ferrera. She's an amazing actress and I love how genuine she is on the show.
4. Superstore - This show gives me so many good laughs. I love it. I think I shop at Walmart more because of this show.
5. Parks and Rec/The Office - these two are classics to me. Absolutely love 'em.

In the research facility, look inside the bathroom. There's an option that says "Search the counter". You'll find the buggy keys.
I also wrote a walkthrough of the game. The URL is below:

I decided to re-publish the game on here for those looking for some nostalgia.
I am planning on releasing the PC/Mac version of the game by the end of 2018.

MyVacation is in the process of becoming a full fledged video game!
The game is being created with Unity for PC/Mac (possibly ports for Switch, PS4, and Xbox One)
I've been dedicating lots of time and hours into it and it will be available for PC/Mac potentially near the end of 2018.

I took it down to update the game. Including new features and areas. Adding new skills, locations, etc.
Also correcting some errors from the first time around.
