Create Your Own Adventure Game - A user-generated text adventure
Choose Your Own Adventure Game, or CYOAG for short, is an idea Steven K came up with, based on the choose-your-own-adventure books he grew up with. The basic idea behind these books was that the reader would be presented with very short chapters for context; then get to pick from a handful of options leading to different page numbers, ultimately resulting in different paths through a story that always started the same but had many possible endings. Steven enjoyed reading, and was thrilled to discover books with variable outcomes.
Now, later in life, Steven has come to love writing as much as he loves reading. Having grown into a career in software development, and remembering his love of choose-your-own-adventure books, he decided it would be a great potential side project to build a website that combines all of these loves into one. The CYOAG is, thus, a web app that proposes to let users read and/or create content for a create-your-own-adventure game online.
