I'm gauging interest for a choose your own adventure style game here on the forums.
What is it?
A choose your own adventure game is a story-driven game where the players (That's you!) get to choose how the story progresses.
A simple example: You are walking down a road and come to a fork in the path.
Option A- You turn right
Option B- You turn left
Once one of these options is chosen, the story continues with various consequences (positive and / or negative) based on this choice.
How would this work?
Using the forums poll feature, your friendly neighbourhood GM (That's me!) would present options twice a week for the community to vote on. The poll would close the day before the next poll opens and the story will continue with the option chosen.
Who is it for?
This game would be drop in / drop out for anyone. Player input can be minimal, with just voting for the day and then leaving, or can be more involved, with discussions of what would be the best course of action and trying to persuade others.
When would it start?
If there's interest, this can start within a month. It can also run concurrently with a mafia game as it doesn't demand the same level of interaction.
What would be the setting?
It is the middle of Tib-War 1. The character is a GDI commando, codenamed 'Mayhem', infiltrating a Nod research centre at the edge of a Tiberium field. Intelligence is sketchy, but it seems there are ongoing experiments with Tiberium exposure to animals and plants. There are also intelligence reports that people have been disappearing from the nearby town. Mayhem's objective within the research centre is to see what Nod is up to and stop them.
So let me know in the poll up above if you'd be interested in this type of game and any feedback if you've played similar games in the past.
