Halcyon: A Journey (WIP Thread)

2 months ago
Expected Word Count - 30K-40K (40K contest limit)
Expected Pages - 200
Expected Completion Deadline - 15th June in case everything goes well with my job and online uni exams.
Genre - Post Apocalyptic

Systems: A very simple skill system for character creation that will open/close option depending upon your character. Maybe be some basic health attribute that will change depending upon how much beating/healing you take and will similarly open/close new options. There will be no randomness whatsoever (in terms of systems atleast).

Current Progress:

Pages - 0/200
Word Count - 0

I plan to update this every day. I haven't really written anything over 10K words, let alone 40K so there will probably be major delays. But at the same time I want a short deadline so that I can actually concentrate upon finishing it instead of getting blinded by the allure of novelty.

Going for something with a lot of scripting on one hand will make yours stand out since I doubt anyone else with Ford will use it extensively. But on the other hand, it's really difficult to make clicking a button to make numbers happen exciting.

Actually there is no scripting at all (I mean I will use scripting but everything I do will be easily achievable with normal variables). The system is pretty easy where you choose 4 from a total of 12 skills and depending of these additional option will be available on some pages.

Hmm Post Apocalyptic is an interesting genre choice. If you don't mind me asking why did you pick it?

I recently played Metro: Exodus and wanted to create something akin to it. In Exodus you basically have a bunch of people in a train who have escaped the underground and together they journey across post apocalyptic Russia.

However, the original plan has changed a lot and I am working on plotting the story with a flowchart. I will probably start writing tomorrow.

Oooh, that could end up being amazing. Best of luck though I'll probably end up reading it.
