I'm a guy who likes stuff.
The tale is about a man standing outside a diner, looking in, watching a woman who he used to know…
NOTE: STORY CONTAINS STRONG SEXUAL REFERENCES AND VIOLENCE.
Author's note: This is my first story. It's a bit on the short side, but I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.

My stories ("Infinite Sadness" and the one I am in the process of writing right now) are not based off of my life, but they do concern, to a certain extent, things that I hear about every day. I live in a pretty old, industrial city with lots of strange and twisted things happening behind closed doors. I channel the knowledge of these things through my writing.
Though, this is even more apparent in my new story game, "I Am The Night," because it has real places in my home town used as locations in the game, albeit under different names.

Nah it's a problem with the version of Explorer I'm using. I'm going to try a few troubleshoots, if they don't work I'm going to have to redo my story in the basic editor(easy because I was just using advanced for the chapters and pages), which would be fine except it takes time.

Kinda hit a road block… the advanced editor doesn't seem to want to work on my computer, at least not with any regularity. So I may need to start all over again.
However, I do have some good news: multiple player characters have been confirmed! I'll start teasing them in the coming weeks. In the meantime, cheers! I hope I have some more good news soon.

And now for something completely different.
I have begun working on my second story game, which I plan to have finished before the end of the summer. This forum is where I will post any and all information and updates that I wish the public to know about. For now, here is the description (and first page) of the story:
"I am the cold rain as it pitter patters down along the sidewalk stretching beyond you. I am the soft gravel that the trucks roll by on. I am the police, the judge, the jury, the executioner, but I am also the clown, the whore that sulks on the street under pulsing red lights, the businessman in his suit, the child with his toy truck.
I am the dawn, the day, the dusk, and the night.
And I will find you."
As an added bit of information about the game for this forum only, the game is going to be a bit of a mystery with many other elements thrown into it, and it will most likely have multiple playable characters by the end (though I don't want to promise this because the first character I'm writing is a bit of a doozy). It is going to be more character driven than "Infinite Sadness."
I can't wait for its publication and I hope you all will like it, when it is published,

As much as I think that this is a good idea I have to throw out the example of Snow. Really, really good story with short and simple sentences, as well as few endings.

Also, maybe I'm being a bit harsh but this http://chooseyourstory.com/story/a-short-love-story was pretty bad as well. Grammar, story, etc. was all not up to the standards of this site.

This game isn't necessarily the worst on the site, but the grammar is atrocious and it is pretty historically inaccurate. The fact that it is "Edutainment" makes these sins even worse.
I'd suggest it for deletion, but that's just me.

Oh… darn… ok, yeah you're right. Do you think there's a way we could eliminate that problem? I'm pretty terrible with computers, I'm just brainstorming ideas :p
Storygame Purge? on 6/14/2014 3:40:34 PM
Yes it tagged me. And yeah this is true. All I'm thinking is that ratings aren't airtight, as we've noted. A "vote up/down" system is, because people can only vote once. I guess you could put a members-only gate on normal voting, but that kind of defeats the purpose. I'm thinking we should use the two together, a "members only" vote up and down ranking, and an "everybody" rating out of eight.
