The XIII Emperor Gamebook - Updates (edited title)

(1/7) > >>

enteka:
Two weeks ago, I re-discovered the Amstrad of my early teens, via the RVM emulator and the Profesor Retroman youtube channel.
Anyway, I've began developing on Locomotive Basic, a small gamebook cyoa/ Fighting Fiction style (more like something in between) sort-of engine.
And I'm in a bit of crossroads. Should I make it into a "real" game? That's tons of work, mostly writing and organizing, as the main code is pretty much done. I would love to, however, it will only make sense if there are people who would play it.
So, what do you think about my wee project?

Hello, mate, and welcome again to the beautiful world of the Amstrad.


I am interested in such games and, for one, would definitely like to play your game. Also, if you require any kind of help, feel free to ask, lots of helpful individuals here.


PS. enteka=from greek?

Gryzor:
Ah just as I thought another g(r)eek joined us... :)

Welcome mate!

Not sure how a computerised CYOA game would work? I thought CYOA books were the printed equivalent of adventure games? Not sure what "Fighting Fiction" is though...


PS talking about formats, early to mid nineties I played a X-Files CYOA on CD, that was fun!

Thank you very much. I will need help with my English which tends to fumble when I'm tired, and in a later version I'll probably be adding graphics and or music. And I'm a total loss at music, just I ken nothing about it.

enteka, yes, from Greek.  :) I needed a short url so it was my 11th attempt and thus -> enteka.xyz it's also my Gopher and Gemini pages

I think CYOA , Adventure Games and Roleplaying games all more or less developed at roughly the same era.
A FF gamebook is ... think CYOA with dice. Whenever it's not in the clear what would happen, you roll and test for some of your character abilities, then if you fail the roll go to section 12 and if you succeed you go to section such and such, or lose hit points, or whateverSome can get way more complex than that, but that's the TLDR version
