A sound in my head said "Hey Brainstorm, why don't you make an idle The Un-Openable Box game?" So another sound in my head said "Go and suck a dick" I now announce that no Un-Openable Box game will be made by me.

  • I've learned my lesson, so I'm making a new text adventure game called Road to Joy, it will be more of a text adventure than an interactive fiction game; elements, equipment and stuff, inventory on the side, etc...
    Hopefully I don't give up on this one, may take more time though

      Also, it will contain more plot than comedy, and usually plot convenience and 0 randomness.

      oh, begging for five stars, eh?

      No.

      Yeah, begging for 5 stars = 1 star for me unless the game really is great.
      Just as a youtuber begging for likes = dislike for me.

      If your game/video/art/whatever is good enough it will get stars/likes etc. Don't beg for them.

      Is this game as much as a stain as anime?

      Well, I think comedy alone isn't good for a text game.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Brainstorm It probably would've been a bit more interesting if the text game had some consistency instead of just "something happens, then something entirely unrelated happens."
    • Brainstorm

      Some events are important though... I also think this is like the movie, A Serious of Unfortunate Events, where all the events were only related by being set up by the same person...
    • Brainstorm

      Series* dammit
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @Brainstorm The thing is, is that by making all of the events completely random, then it's not interesting. The story starts by your house being hit by a meteor. Does it matter if you choose to stay inside the house? No, it results in the same route. When you go to your friend's house, you two shoot an alien then he dies or something. Then you nearly get arrested, go into the sewers, get teleported, and end up in a ditch where you and another guy are suddenly the only survivors of the zombie apocalypse. It's completely random. There aren't any characters that stay, nor is really anything explained. Since nothing is explained early on, it's clear that nothing is going to be explained in the future and as thus it becomes uninteresting to read. If it was set up as a movie, it would be even worse, since the viewer half the time wouldn't even know what they're watching. Since this is a text adventure, it's not as bad, but there's only one real path. There aren't any real splits where you can go into one story or some other story, which again makes it more uninteresting since the reader lacks any control over what's happening, and they are just reading random nonsense that leads to more random nonsense.

      I haven tried the game and I guess have this advice. Random =/= funny or interesting. random = confusing.
      also with text adventure games they require splits to work, granted you can have small dialogue with two options that lead to the same route but allow some backstory to get involved while still having big splits that cause different scenarios. I actually recently played a text adventure game on Kong called God's Assassin. it was really well laid out. but anyways you can have all these scenarios in the game and hell even have them chained together but that requires backstory to explain the beginning along with story along the way with details to keep the player well informed and entertained.

      Well, I'm going back to Construct 2 games after I get a new laptop, I may probably make other games of interactive fiction with less randomness... question; should my IF games be more like Noob Story and/or Monster Adventures?
