Topic: Anyone up for testing a new kind of adventure game Only takes a few minutes.
The genre is best known for the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series, but that's a trademarked name so I can't use it. Gamebooks are much older than CYOA. Colossal Cave and other IF are the same kind of thing. (In fact, my first story takes place in caves.
How this game is different:
It's online: no downloads, no platform issues.
It starts instantly: no plugins, no waiting, no Flash.
Because it is so simple I will add a new chapter every day, and a new story every week. The stories all connect, as far as possible. This is probably its most unique feature. It's like a daily web comic, except you choose what happens.
It includes a guide to make your own stories. If others make stories I will host them on the site.
Your decisions are scored on your bravery, intuition, or romance (depending on the book). You can print off certificates and compare your score with your friends.
If anyone has a few minutes to look at the test version and give some feedback I'd be very grateful. As I said, email of PM me for a link and password.
