So, I started a new game which isn't really a CYOA in any way, but I don't know where else to announce it. It's an experimental sci-fi government sim.

I know there have been vaguely similar games in this sub-forum before, so does anyone here know where I can find players interested in this sort of thing?

Gravediggerís Adventure CYOA

A black-comic romp through a fantasy world as a somewhat villainous gravedigger and his patron Master. Heavily inspired by Darkest Dungeon in visuals and mood and Young Frankenstein in tone.

In a few moments my neighbor is going to exit this building's ground floor, out onto the sidewalk. According to my math, from this height, I can kill him by pissing on him.

I'm GMing an original CYOA game over on reddit called Yeti Quest. I would have preferred to have done it here, but it was originally just supposed to be for some irl friends who I had no hope of convincing to pay 10bux. Engagement hasn't been quite what I've been hoping though, so I've come to cast a wider net and invite you all over!

The format is "single protagonist, all voting players represent their collective subconscious and guide their choices and beliefs." It's working a little bit different without the continuous forums format, but I'm trying to figure that out and make it work as I go.

The game has been running for just about a month and a half. We are on the 7th update in what I still very much consider the "prologue" of the game, so if you read the prior updates and start voting now, you're still getting in on the ground floor. The current vote will be very formative to the main character before we get into some time-skips, so now is the perfect time to come join us!

I've been inspired by various past CYOAs like Goblii, Roma, RYB, and I'm currently trying to catch up with Diogenes & co. in Paradise Lost after hustling through Land Between the Rivers. (So if it ever looks like I'm ripping of Diogines' style, please consider it homage; dude is a master.)

Some notes:

Right now only Paradise Lost is archived

Search is slightly slow.

Fuzzy search searches plurals and singulars (e.g. if you search "dog" you get "Dogs" and possibly "Dogg")

Strict search matches the word exactly ("dog" is "Dog" or "dog" but not "dogs")

You cannot search for "linking" words, like "the", 'for' and, 'and'.

There are guaranteed to be bugs.

Dracula is about to be reborn. This is an objectively bad thing that should be avoided at all cost. Dust off that old whip you keep under the bed and ask your local priest for a few flasks of holy water, because we're going to pay ol' Drac's castle a visit.

Although I wrote the first update, I am not this game's GM. In fact, this game doesn't have a permanent GM. Players take turns voting and writing updates instead. Give it a try, you have full creative control when you're the GM. Hand the main character a shiny new weapon! Design one of the castle's many strange rooms! Laugh maniacally as you brutally kill the main character!

(Of course you can also just vote and play the game, if GM-ing isn't your thing).

Glass-Maker's Dragon CYOA

I wanted to try running this CMWGE campaign, and I thought that this might be a good way to do it.

A kid with a machine that can grant wishes (which he tries to use to generate ice-cream) tries to work out why weird magical dust keeps blowing into his home.

He may or may not be a dragon, but he's never been concerned enough to look into the matter.

(Is there any way to change the thread icon? I accidentally set it wrong, it needs to be 'Fantasy'.)

If you're unfamiliar with Scion, it's a modern fantasy game where all myths are created equally! The gods of ancient antiquity are real and they like to have kids and emissaries in the World. Our divine parent hasn't paid us a visit yet but we have a sinking feeling that there's something special about us. Come on! Let's make a New God out of ourselves

Notably, all the original player's characters from Episodes/Maps 1 & 2 have either died or retired by this point. There will only be two first-time veterans coming back onto the field and everyone else will be starting anew. It's a newbie's game out there!

Come join us in tele-fragging space horrors while getting closer to the futuristic human ideal: a hulking neosoldat cyberdemon who utters monosyllabic blessings to the gun-gods as they rend and tear through technoflesh.
