This is my first time making a storygame, and I've read a lot of the Help and Info page to try and see how to go about this. This is also my first time writing a long story, adn I really hope I do a good job. At the moment I have the foundation of the story, a biut of the world's history is setup, I even have a timeline that Ill post below, and I have a plot. Its a bit cliched, but I hope my writing manages to redeem it. The idea I had was that the MC is a cyborg in a futuristic utopian society that has to either stop the A.I uprising or join it - or even make your own side, while being basically hated by both sides for not being either a. A.I or a human.
I just want to know how the plot sounds, and whether my timeline of event needs a bit more.
Edit: the website screwed up my formatting somehow and it wont let me post my timeline with paragraphs, so if you want to see it, just messgae me.
Ok! I have a few more questions though you answered some of my major ones up there. Would people be against having the a part where an earlier background detail is suddenly important, and how much description is too much? I know people don't want an entire paragraph about what the main character is wearing, and I don't want that either but at the same time I don't want to have too little details. I also shouldn't have too many many "branches" because I don't want to be too overwhelmed since this is my first time, but I also don't think one or two major endings would be enough? I kind of want to give a good impression, weird as that is.
Thanks for answering my questions, and I think those were the last ones I have for now. I started planning the major points for my story already, and I'm going to follow one path to the end while leaving options for others open, then go back and follow another path because it seems to work well.
So no fake choices and random deaths.
I'm not really looking for a high rating since this is my first story. I want to just have a solid first story that I can use the advice on to improve my second story. But I also don't want to seem completely stupid.
