I feel like a sloth because I did not manage to accomplish super a lot. But I really did try….
So just want to update for this week!
I finished my story and the options that follows the narrative, though! 😀 I am happy. Week 11/12 will be tidying up the narrative and adding the narrative to the code to finish the project. I will also have to draw the images used in the project.
As my project is meant to be a Demo as to what an interactive choose-your-own-adventure story can be like, and also due to very tight time constraints, I decided to cut down on what I have initially proposed while retaining the concept of my work.
Chapter 0: Prologue
Normal Storyline; it is just an introduction.
Chapter 1: The Ball
There is a choose-your-option section here, but there is only 1 option for each choice. This is to subvert expectations, where I make it seem like there is only one choice per option, which will be different later on.
Chapter 2: The Dress
Over here, there is a choose-your-option section too, but the selection is a picture for each option. Each picture will lead to 3 possible narratives that can continue from the chosen option. This is different from the first one, where the reader only has 1 narrative to derive from each option.
Chapter 3: The Rebellion
Here, there is a choose-your-option section with 3 narratives tied to each option. However, the options are text, not an image.
Chapter 4: The Day
Over here, there is choose-your-option section but with a timer. If the reader does not decide within 20 seconds, a fourth option will be triggered. Over here, the point is to express how there is a timer, so I only put 2 possible narratives for each option.
Chapter 5: Epilogue
Finally, the last part! Over here, I decided to tease the reader. Because they don’t really get to decide how the narrative flows in the middle sections of the story, I am giving the reader a final chance to truly “decide” the ending of the story based on their own choice of judgment. However, it is ironic and a shame, because the last decision they truly have control over, is not really very significant to the ending of the story… only entertaining.
That’s all for this week! I will not be posting the narrative so teehee.
