Finished within four hours of writing, with approximately an hour of planning - more time spent on that would've helped. Oh well. Very loosely based off someone I know. Entry for the La Petite Mort category, Ectocomp 2019.
This is supposed to be a haha meta storygame but I'm going to preemptively say that it's not particularly funny. Follow Cian as he enters a spiral about writing a choose your own adventure in four hours, while lamenting a recent break-up. There's... not really many endings but a couple pathways you could take.
HEY THERE. FOR THE ZERO PEOPLE WHO WERE EAGERLY AWAITING FOR THE NEW AND IMPROVED STORY OF CIAN, WE'RE FINALLY BACK. WHICH MEANS IT ACTUALLY TOOK JUST A BIT OVER FOUR HOURS TO MAKE THIS THING. BAM: DISQUALIFICATION? BOOM.
THERE ARE NOW ENDINGS FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO NEED THE ENDINGS SPELLED OUT FOR THEM. I KNOW THIS ISN'T FUNNY BUT NO U.
- BLANK PAGE ENDING
- MEGA SAD ENDING
- MEGA SAD ENDING #2
- SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE
- FLAT OUT DENIAL
Phew. With that out of my system, let's continue.
The Best of Both Worlds
