Howdy!

 

I've been active since 2020, the same year I discovered that the few Goosebumps CYOAs I read back in the day still had living virtual counterparts. It turns out they're really fun to read, and much more inviting to write than a solid, traditional book for an amateur like myself.

 

 

Other than playing storygames, I like to do digital drawings (which are now decent) and improve the site code. I hope to make a magnum opus here someday.

MHD IS AWESOME

Storygames

The Razing of Nipthm
You live a small farming life on Nipthm, a planet of scrublands and grasslands. Trouble heads your way, and it's bringing a mortal danger you can't avoid. United Space doesn't bother trying to protect the outer worlds. You're on your own.

This is a story for Endmaster's Manifest Destiny contest. It was made in such a short period of time I wouldn't have normally been allowed to publish it (2 days). Hopefully it's entertaining, and I didn't make too many errors. Enjoy!

I think where I left off unicode is supported on forums, but I wanted to come back and at least fix the issues with apostrophes in storygame titles, which people continue to hit, before submitting that to the site.

Our defenses are stalwart. Moonrune mysticists can try! I have complete faith in CYS's impenetrable walls. Deus vult!

This is such a specific weird thing for the site. Well, can't say I'm surprised given the horrors of its other quirks. I'll iron this out eventually. Once I'm done stopping avalanches in motion the way IAP once taught me

Voting for story 1 here.

I started dying as soon as I realized what this was! If only there was a music video for this one.

Corgi vs Fem - Vote! on 10/12/2021 5:32:31 PM
Scratch down a vote for Revengeance. I found it more entertaining, and the one about ghosts seemed to skim over details here and there (like dying in a few days of starvation at an orphanage to just come back as a ghost). It also had a bit of talkative side narration that I didn't like as much.

All in all, another easy win for the author, which is clearly femwolverine.

It's not as important to me. There's some other stuff I'll jump back into that would be a lot more useful to most people (dark mode, unicode support, fixing font sizes on mobile, etc.)

CYS boldly and nobly ignores case-sensitivity in passwords. The powers that be have decided to make a slight adjustment here and start respecting case sensitivity. Soonish. An error was never made in the infallible and glorious history of CYS; move along.

That's hilariously bad if true since that halves the difficulty to guess a password. Then again, only a few hundred people are active here and effectively nobody knows this place exists since it's so small.

I'll try to look at it later today to see.

Should I include opinionated thoughts in my game? on 9/21/2021 7:58:21 PM
If you want to leave it up to the reader, give the reasoning without the verdict. Instead of "you don't want to get caught in this mess," say something like "investigators are going to come, as they always do. Leaving fingerprints at the scene wouldn't bode well". The character has given their thoughts and the reader gets to decide. You can throw in doubts from all angles this way, too.

As an option, you can also omit the "you think" part to make thoughts seem more personal in second person. Sentences usually flow better that way, too.

Who, me? I'm just the silhouette in the background that moves when you look away. Don't worry about it.
