Rosanon's Profile Picture
Rosanon
United States
Just a normal person with some very specific interests. I may or may not upload things here at my own leisure. I'm friendly and do not mind being offended in the slightest, so go right ahead if you want to say even the most vile things to me; it builds character or something.

Also if this information is useful, I live in California and am available to contact usually from about 6 PM to midnight my time.

My very first, somewhat terribad CYOA
I figure, since I'm posting my work to this profile, I might as well post where it REALLY first began. Story time.

So, I got my first introduction to CYOAs on /v/. I like to think that /v/ and /tg/ share certain parts of their culture and interests, considering that they're both filled with a bunch of nerds. Anyway, on /v/, from time to time circa 2015, there would be off-topic threads where people would just post a bunch of different simple choice games or CYOAs. Since /v/'s got a small filesize cap for uploads, most CYOAs that you could post HAD to be simple, otherwise they wouldn't fit (the way PNG encodes data makes text bloat filesize like a motherfucker).

Probably the first CYOA that I took a serious interest in was the "/v/ superpower game," which is still a fun little thing with a rudimentary point system and like 30 powers with 5 distinct levels each to choose from. It was fun to make builds and think about the implications of each option, but I found myself getting a little irked at some of the design decisions and lamenting that I hadn't made it, since I couldn't exactly edit it. Then, one day, I came across what was known as a "jumpchain" CYOA, which is its own can of worms that I'd rather not get into (but you can find out more about on /tg/ if you want). It was a Pokemon-themed CYOA, and I was enjoying it pretty thoroughly, but I felt that my adventures were severely limited by a rather oppressive point total, nickle-ing and dime-ing me for things that I thought were absolute necessities and, thus, were essentially useless point taxes. Around that time I had noticed a rash of CYOAs that had the same problem of less being, "choose your own adventure," and more, "salvage your own adventure," putting players in situations that were basically just un-fun to think about for me, due to a low point total or bizarre drawbacks to some of the better options.

I had had enough of that, so I decided I would make my own CYOA, with the proverbial blackjack and hookers. I set about constructing something that I thought was simple, effective, and, MOST OF ALL, left you with an enjoyable situation no matter which option you picked. No point totals (I wasn't advanced enough for that yet), and no fancy graphics (made this shit in Paint). Looking back on it, I still think that there's a kernel of good design in this one, though obviously it deserves a FULL remake someday (though it'd mostly be just aesthetic). I'm basically just putting it here so that you can see where I started out, as a paint-wielding newbie with nothing but a computer and a wish to do what nobody else would.

ALSO, SINCE THIS ONE'S SO SIMPLE, HERE'S A STRAWPOLL TO COLLECT YOUR ANSWERS, IF YOU WANT: strawpoll.me/5287711/

Aaaand I got another commission that's a sequel to the big-ass one.

If you read/liked/played CYO/u/ and enjoyed the companions, I saw this poll floating out here in the wild (I didn't make it) regarding the companions. You could vote in it if you wanted.

Hey, I got an art commission done that involves a gigantic ass, if that's your kind of thing:

There may possibly be a boob-related sequel to this one eventually, too, so keep an eye out for that.
100 Watchers.

That's crazy. Why are you watching me? What did I do to deserve this? I don't even post that much content!
So I'm basically done with all the stuff that's going to be in the Yuri CYOA. All I have left is creating companions, making the damn thing in its final form, and putting point costs on everything, but I do have a design document that I use to help me organize and outline what it's going to be like in the end, which I'd like to share:

docs.google.com/document/d/1jE…

There it is; I've posted this on /tg/'s CYOA thread several times over the past months to positive response, but no one ever wants to suggest anything, which saddens me, so if you have anything tasteful (or not, I don't really care) you want to see me add, now would be the time to dump it in the Suggestion Box at the top of the doc (or section-specific feedback at whatever place is appropriate in the doc).


Honest ETA™: 1™ Month™ (subject to Change™)

Edit: By the way there may be some politically incorrect jokes in the design doc, so be aware of that. I'm an equal-opportunity hater, though.
