Step 1: Writing the Storyline

For this example we will create a simple game called Bill's Quest. First of all you need to write the storyline of your game.

Here is the storyline:

D > Welcome to Bills Quest

I > Look

D > You are standing in a meadow, there is a shack on it.

I > walk to shack, open door

D > suddenly you feel a nausea overcome you and you fall to the floor in a heap. You drift in and out of consciousness and gradually awake to find youself in a locked room

I > look

D > You are in a locked room with a table, and a flickering candle

I > Look at table

D > There is a key on the table

I > Get key

D > You take the key that is laying on the table

I > unlock door

D > You unlock the door and walk out of the room

D > You Win

Scr > Shake

That is how I write a storyline. You may do it differently but this version works the best for me.

Each of the letteres in front of the line represent a different action

"I >" represents something that the player has to do.

"D >" represents a dialogue or message.

"Scr >" represents an action on the screen.
