325boy, The Wordsmith
I'm a 14 year old boy with 4 published storygames.
Always up for a 1 or 2-point duel!
...Uh, someone? Give me a duel? I like them?
This is my first published storygame.
You have 20 minutes to save the world. You have the keys to open any door in a hallway, and the rooms contain items for your solution.
Get the correct items to create the world-saving solution!
But you will lose the keys after you open 6 doors, and you have limited time to get the items you want.
TIME IS DISPLAYED AS: MMSS
You are a 15-year-old boy that has recently moved to Superville, a town 3 hours drive away from the city and what seems to be the most boring place in existence. Why your family moved here remains a mystery. But getting lost on the way home from your first day of school, you see a sign asking "Do you have the courage and bravery?". A sign that changes your life.
Basically this is a comedy story about becoming a superhero. You can have one of 2 superhero partners; one makes it a lot easier to beat the game. You need to get through all 13 chapters to win.
1-12: The number of chapters you beat.
100: Beat the game with the easier partner and chose the worst option at the final choice.
150: Beat the game with the easier partner and chose the best option at the final choice.
200: Beat the game with the harder partner and chose the worst option at the final choice.
100: Beat the game with the harder partner and chose the best option at the final choice.
You work as a secret agent in a large city home to millions of people. On a normal Wednesday afternoon, which is normally your day off, you receive a mission alert saying that a bomb is set to blow up in 32 minutes, destroying the whole city. Do you try to deactivate it, like you've been told to do? Or do you drive straight out of the city? The choice is yours.
This storygame is the product of 9 months on and off for roughly 20 minutes a day (including a 4 month hiatus). 372 pages, 1038 links, 24421 words, 27 items, 43 variables... don't expect storygames this large from me again.
While testing this storygame, I found a MASSIVE bug. In this game, there a four pages that each tell you a digit of a code, and the page that told you the second digit said the wrong digit... fixed now. Now for the real description.
You wake in a mysterious land full of strange puzzles. It seems the only way home is by venturing around and solving them.
You must roam around the map, collecting items to unlock the way home. There are 36 areas, each marked with a letter A-F, and a number 1-6. Every area must be visited at least once to win (at least using the intended route...). Good luck!
I hate storygames that you can't rate if you don't get the good ending as much as you do, so there is an "End Game" link at C2. South Cave in case you want to give up.
You have 3 lives.
Score = 2000 - the number of links you click on. If this goes below zero, you lose.
Score 0: Out of lives.
Score -1: Out of time.
Score -2: Gave up (see above).
Author's best score: 1923. You will not get this score on your first playthrough as it requires knowing a code and exactly what items are needed and where to find them.
This is a game based on a 400-700 word short story (I ended up just under the word limit with 697!) that I wrote for my 8th grade English class, which I've expanded to make into a CYS. It's about a freshman on their second day of high school making a friend, and dealing with bullies. There are 31 pages, 14 endings (6 good, 3 neutral, 5 bad), and even a new branch that you're one of the bullies.
This story is relatively short; the length of one playthrough varies from 3 to 10 pages (roughly 250 words per page). I figured a short storygame would suit me better after my 372-page storygame got an average rating of 3/8!
Maturity Level: I've said 3/8 as young children may find it scary, but this is actually about teenagers.

Im gonna leave
Constructive criticism helps.
The reason why they're "mean" is because they're giving their honest opinion about the game. Parents usually are not the best people for constructive criticism.
And now you're going to leave because some people just said your storygame sucked? I mean, if it did suck, then they were just giving their honest opinion. But if it didn't suck, then just keep in mind that people are going to hate your storygame, no matter what.
And plus, how are you going to improve if people just say nice comments all the time like "this is great!" or "nothing needs to be changed!"? The problem is that it's challenging to improve your storygames in the future if nobody gives you constructive criticism.
Also, what was the point of this storygame? CYS is a writing community. Instead of writing this storygame, you could've just not come on anymore. It was that simple.

The storygame has been unpublished and the author banned since October 2019.

Have fun reading these shitty stories, these are the only ones I was found when I was looking for one.
