What do you mean?
Oh, I promise we aren't. We're students in a gaming program, and we're writing stories on the site as part of an assignment for storytelling class. I promise by tomorrow most if not all of us will be gone, as thats the due date.
I can see how this might be suspicious lol.
Hey, I don’t know everyone’s handle from our class, but for our Digital Storytelling class we were assigned to make a CYOA on this site.
Send them with money. Corruption is encouraged here. Note that if the bribe is disappointing, we'll see that you're made an example.
I guess your teacher didn't get the memo...
It's possible to enable "sneak preview" so that your teacher can review your works without you publishing them.
Thanks for the tip, that will be helpful.
Is that a request for more stories?
If that's a hobby of yours, sure. But I guess she was just referring to the points you earn when you rate a game.
Lol, fair enough. If it apeases the story gods, I shall feed them with my story. Besides, it would be an excellent chance for critique!
We're all in college, our program is bachelor level. So im not surprised that theres some stuff to like ;)
What do you mean "the last ones"?
Oh dear, that sounds dreadful. I promise you none of us are THAT immature. It sounds like a blood bath.
You say that, but, uh, furryfox6969
True true. No idea who that is lol, any ideas?
You can publish it if you want, it's just that it's not necessary to do so. Usually the classes are middle schoolers or high schoolers, hence the article. But if you want reviews from us you can publish it.
Also... a man's house filled with ducks... is that a reference to a video from a guy named James Veitch ?
Sounds like a terrible roommate to me
Heh, will do. We didnt know this was discord linked, We'll let the teacher know so we can avoid bothering you guys in the future.
When is the due date for these stories to go up? Should we expect more incoming, or was that the last of them?
Originally it was today but apparently the professor extended it a...week? I did pass along the sneak preview info though.
Because some peeps appear to be looking at this...newcomers, gaze upon the articles below!
Those mostly apply if you want to have your story 'published' on the site, which is great as you can get strangers feedback!
HOWEVER, the most IMPORTANT article for you all, which I strongly advise checking out, is this one:
There are rules for dialogue punctuation, but from what I gather, they are not really taught. Further, at least one story published by this cohort had incorrect dialogue punctuation. As such, if any of you care for writing (which you probably do, considering the course name), I'd advise trying to ensure you understand this properly. Heck, even if you don't care I'd still advise learning it.
Your teacher/tutor/etc could probably teach this, but I obviously know nothing about them and the course goals, but I'm pretty sure if you want good storytelling (through writing) you want correct punctuation (or at least to have mistakes be intentional).
Regardless, if I can spread this knowledge to multiple people with one post, I'd be pretty happy.
P.S. Here is an external site that has a good deal of examples: Editor's Blog: Punctuation in Dialogue
It’s much appreciated, definitely. Hopefully he enjoyed some more than he disliked, lol
I did skip Quiet Mountain since it already had a thorough review, and navigating around it was difficult. And I never found a third bin of fish for the first puzzle. (Why the character would see a bin of fish and think, 'hmm, I should lug this around with me...' is another mystery.) It's kind of a shame that the navigation on that one is wierd, as I like puzzle games and the thriller/paranormal plot looks like it would be interesting.
The duck one made me laugh, (especially the "will it blend?" line,) and I liked the story of the Lonely King. Cyber-Security Awareness month was informational.
Thanks, I hadn't noticed the mention of a safe. Finally found it.
My new game may *seem* temporally like it's part of the noob swarm, but no. It's just me.
My new game
I...don't know. It's mysterious to me.
