Quote from: enteka on 11:52, 31 May 21Two 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?
Quote from: manossg on 12:25, 31 May 21Hello, 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?
Quote from: Gryzor on 12:36, 31 May 21Ah 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!
Quote from: enteka on 13:10, 31 May 21Thank 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
Quote from: Animalgril987 on 19:24, 31 May 21What's your game? I will try it out.
Quote from: andycadley on 13:45, 31 May 21I remember playing the Spectrum version of one of those FF games back in the day (Forest of Doom IIRC) and it was pretty cool. At lot harder to cheat than it was with the book version though.
Quote from: MiguelSky on 19:59, 31 May 21I loved this on paper. Some years ago, a version for nowaday devices was also released,
Quote from: Animalgril987 on 19:24, 31 May 21@enteka. Welcome to the forums. We will all look forward to your game, if yo release it
Quote from: eto on 17:45, 31 May 21tl;dr: if you enjoy making this, then just do it.
Quote from: skylas on 17:00, 31 May 21Welcome! Feel free to ask anything you want, and good luck with the project!As I had the same thoughts when I started dealing with Amstrad again, I can assure you that there many that would try your game. Just needs a bit more time for posting in appropriate groups, forums etc, so that many people get aware of it. I can also recommend @manossg for music, as he makes an excellent work in my opinion. You just have to learn to load AKG files from Arkos Tracker.
