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

Phrase to be employed to give weight to any political argument (e.g. “as a mother, I think we should teach those Iraqis a lesson”).

A selfless act of generosity towards someone worse off than myself which I should be heartily congratulated upon. Not to be confused with a serious political solution to the cause (see Communist).

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

Okay, I'll update this at last as the last one was wishing everyone a happy 2013. Did you have a good 2013? I hope so...Party 

The main reason for the slow update is that I've let me premium membership lapse, and I didn't want to lose the journal skin and mini-map- I like knowing where people visit my site from :D But, needs must, especially as I'm too cheap to pay £37 a year for premium membership (the next time they do a half-price or 2 for 1 offer, I'll tihnk about it).

The second is that I'm working on a big big project with my coder, Mike, we're cobbling together a free video game, based on my choose-your-own-adventure ebook Witches and Bandits and Swords (Oh My). The game's too big for dA, but I can post various bits and bobs here- check out the game in graphic novel format in my recent deviations, for instance, or our crappy gaming studio logo.

I'm also doing the various social media things you seem to have to do with any kind of creative work, so please give Krunchy Fried Games a like on one of the links below. We'll almost certainly follow you back if you've got something to promote (unless your page is about nazism or poisoning kittens, or something of course...). Other various tasks include animations, editing graphics and sounds and miscellaneous admin, all while working full time in a hospital. I fondly remember the days when I actually had time to write...

Could you please STOP hate my nation?
redruM-110 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2017   Writer
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.
