Writing a Choose Your Own Adventure Game
Certainly writing is challenging: you need things like plots, character development, thorough research into anything from which flowers blossom at which time of year, to the sort of weapons related matters that might result in some very serious men knocking at your door. But is it really enough? Have you ever wished, not just to paint a picture for your readers, but to plonk them in the midst of the action and let them wander into however many dangers and traps you choose to throw at them? If, like me, you’re a power-hungry sadist who spent large chunks of childhood drawing maps for Legend of Zelda and the like, then writing a Choose Your Own Adventure game might just be the answer.
For anyone unfamiliar with the concept, these game books are written in small sections which end by giving the reader a choice of actions which move them on to different parts of the book. In a regular paper book, they’d do this by flicking through the pages, but with an e-book, they just have t

Witches and Bandits and Swords (Oh My)
This is a choose your own adventure style fantasy game. Please see comments for more details...
The plan was simple enough, or at least should have been. Back in your homeland, you and your friends had a great idea to make enough money for you to live like royalty (in terms of wealth, at least, putting on a posh accent and wearing silly clothes would be entirely up to you). Hearing of vast fortunes to be made in the exotic Westlands you took the decision to pool all your resources into one great expedition. Your cargo of herbs and spices were commonplace back home, but overseas they would sell for a vast fortune. At least they would have done had they got there. Three days into your voyage, you sailed around the north of the continent of Meir with the weather conditions against you. The treacherous coast and stormy weather made life difficult enough but things became even worse when a sleek vessel with a black flag was spotted moving stealthily through the volatile

Dom Party Manifesto 2009
Greetings Comrades. This is a message from your Supreme Leader, Dom; pay close attention to my wise and learned counsel. It has been brought to my notice that, despite the stagnation of the major parties of the United Kingdom, and the poor state of our economy, we in the Dom Party are failing to turn this into profitable election results. This situation will not stand, Comrades and I aim to tackle the biggest underlying problems of our organisation. I have summed these up for your perusal;
1, We have no elected Members of Parliament, nor local councillors.
2, We have never stood for election for any office.
3, We have no money.
4, We only have one member- and he is currently wondering whether his time would be better spent making a cup of tea and curling up in bed with a Bill Bryson book.
While the money issue could be slightly improved if I could be bothered to go to the bank and get real money for the shoe-box full of loose change I possess, it is now that I intend to solve a

Well, actually, we put it out in November, but considering I'm so crap at updating stuff like this, can we just pretend this is a new announcement? Thanks ;) (Wink)

Witches and Bandits and Swords (Oh My), is a choose your own adventure game I started on dA ages and ages ago- and now, finally, coder Mike and I have turned it into a free video game here on Kongregateand Newgrounds, so please (please please) check it out, and any feedback you can give will be useful. I've written a blog post here on how it went, if you're interested. Main feeling from having finished it is an overwhelming sense of relief that it's all done, I can move on with my life, and stop banging on about these bloody witches! Although, it feels strange no longer spending long evenings on rewriting prose sections for the umpteenth time, mixing ambient sounds in Audacity, editing characters and backgrounds on Gimp and exchanging long rambling e-mails with Mike about tiny game details.  Personal Computer 

This will change soon as we're starting work on two projects for next year: one football management game, and another choose-your-own-adventure. This one's more schlock and bizarro horror than fantasy, and I'm not even going to attempt to make it family friendly, so expect a lof weirdness:D

Also, if you're a half-decent artist with dedication but no financial expectations beyond a shared percentage of any profits then please get in touch. If you're not an artist, or you just don't fancy it, then thanks thanks for reading all the same- hope you're having an excellent 2018! :party:

Peace and Love,

  • Listening to: Die Antwoord (yes, really...)
  • Reading: American Gods- Neil Gaiman
  • Watching: The Labyrinth with David Bowie
  • Playing: The Spy Who Shot Me (on Newgrounds)
  • Eating: My Secret Recipe Chicken Curry

Could you please STOP hate my nation?

Oh, FFS. Ok, for people who don't know, I wrote a fairly light-hearted post in the politics forum (linked to here) trying to predict which will be the next country of the world.

One of my options (alongside the likes of Catalonia, Kurdistan and Scotland) was the People's Republic of Donetsk.

Please note, KunYKA, I am not advocating an independent Donetsk (or Luhansk). I am simply suggesting that there is a chance that this could happen.
