Bigger, better, more BADASS!!

I wanted to share this image.

I've been working on Moonbright and I knew going in it would be significantly more complex than Frostfall, but I just saw this side-by-side comparison and even I'm pretty surprised at the difference.

Both images are composed of dots that represent the game passages, as well as their branching pathways (choices). As you can see, Frostfall had several options, but for the most part the game was very linear- I mean, it was basically an adventure through a cave. You didn't have too many options other than to go on through the cave.

But Frostfall is bigger. You don't start in a cave, you start in a town. Right off the bat, you're given 3 completely different choices to start the game. Before the MAIN QUEST even begins, you've already got 3 small adventures that will be totally unique each time you play through because all 3 quests don't link up in any way. And within THOSE quests are other smaller branching subquests!

I haven't even gotten to the main quest of the game yet and this game is already branching all over the place. Moonbright is going to be freaking epic- a text adventure RPG on a scale you've never seen before. I'm so excited to share this game with you guys, but I have a lot of work ahead of me!

This ones a big'un.



PS yes flimflamophobia I'm still working on the animations too ;)

Looking forward to it!

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:


you wanna beta test again? also, do you know how to add music to Twine games by any chance? I've figured out how to add it to a single page, but when I click away the music stops and restarts instead of continuing... still working on that aspect with some temp tracks. but once i figure that out i'd love to get some original music in it :)

I wouldn't mind. Insofar as music goes, I'm trying to scour Google for help and tips. I haven't actually used Twine before, so...

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

haha no worries. I've been searching on google and found a bunch of different ideas but haven't found one that works for all passages yet..

I found this

I wonder if it's of any help, if you've seen it at all before.

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

thanks I'll look into this. I haven't installed that Howler thing so I'll try that :]

That's Mr. FlimFlamThankYouMa'amPhobia to you, ScruYuSpaBa! <3
If you need help with anything... well, I have no talents, so... moral support - yeah!

And if you ever need a break this week, July 2nd - July 9th is the SGDQ charity event on Twitch. Keep making games and perhaps someday someone will speed run one of them for charity. Then, you'd be helping thousands of people with one of your adventures.

KungFuSpaceBarbarian responds:

ohhh that's really cool :] haven't heard of SGDQ before, i'll have to check it out.

also, your moral support is hugely appreciated!!
