Bonus content ideas? I got you!

Looking for ideas for bonus scenes in your story? I got you!

I’ll list every idea that I have, feel free to do the same. I will add them here as well so we can have a panel to choose from. Hopefully this thread can be a guide for people running out of ideas for bonus content :stuck_out_tongue:

If you’re not a only a reader, feel free to tell what kind of content you like for bonus scenes :heartpulse:

I’m separating according to genre as some ideas are specific to a particular genre. Help me with other genres too :smile_cat:

General
  • Get someone else’s POV
  • Top up points
  • Support the author
  • Exclusive art scene
  • Alternate endings (other branch)
  • Character Q/A
  • Re-do a mini-game that is important to the story (in which you are supposed to earn points)
  • Funny content (that does not necessarily have something to do with the plot, but that could be fun to add)
  • Sneak peek of the next episode
  • Unlocking a scene for which you didn’t have enough point
  • Re-choose gender branch (if the author didn’t use flags).
  • Gender bender content.
  • “What if” scenarios.
  • Glossary.
  • Q&A of/for the world/universe the story is set in (good for stories set in the past, way into the future, fantasy, sci-fi, etc).
  • Author Q&A (more personal and unrelated to the story).
  • “Behind the scenes” scenes which weren’t actually integrated into the story itself nor were apart of any branch. Could be a part that explains why a certain character said something or the link between one scene to another.
  • Re-choose sense of style if flags weren’t used.
  • Re-customize/decorate your room.
  • Bloopers
Mystery
  • Get one scene from the vilain’s POV (that would be sooo cool in my opinion)
  • Get a scene from the detective POV (if the reader is not playing as the detective)
  • Get more clues during a mini game
  • Get clues to catch the killer (think word, object, anything that has to do with the killer)
Adventure
  • See the characters in a different setting/on a different journey.
  • Revisit locations.
  • Redo choices to do with inventory, weaponry, companions, armor, food etc.
Sci-fi
  • Q&A for different species if applicable.
  • See [insert char] as a [different species name here].
  • Re-choose spaceship.
Sci-Fi and Fantasy
  • Re-choose abilities (if flags weren’t used).
Romance
  • See the other branch (either at the end, or at the end of an episode)

Thanks to @line123462 & @schittwriter for helping out!

I made a poll a while ago about gem choices, and I posted the result here. If you’re thinking of a way to incorporate gems in your story, check it out!

chapter 4 is from line 1644 to 2745, its kinda four diffrent scenes with four diffrent love interest you can have unlock, but the gem choice unlock all, I kinda expect people to have unlock two three,

I like 5 gems to be honest, 8 is just kinda pricey in my opinion.

“What if” bonus content is good too. They’re one of my favorites in stories. :relaxed:
I also love gender bender content.

General:

  • Re-choose gender branch (if the author didn’t use flags).
  • Gender bender content.
  • “What if” scenarios.
  • Glossary (could include highly sophisticated words, words relative to a specific time periods, made up words for a fantasy story, code words, slang, you could also include language-to-language translations).
  • Q&A of/for the world/universe the story is set in (good for stories set in the past, way into the future, fantasy, sci-fi, etc).
  • Author Q&A (more personal and unrelated to the story).
  • “Behind the scenes” scenes which weren’t actually integrated into the story itself nor were apart of any branch. Could be a part that explains why a certain character said something or the link between one scene to another.
  • Re-choose sense of style if flags weren’t used.
  • Re-customize/decorate your room.
  • Re-choose phone or desktop wallpaper.
  • Re-choose vehicle or vehicle color.
  • Find out what [character] said in English (because the original dialogue could be on a different language).

Adventure:

  • See the characters in a different setting/on a different journey.
  • Revisit locations.
  • Redo choices to do with inventory, weaponry, companions, armor, food etc.

Sci-Fi:

  • Q&A for different species if applicable.
  • See [insert char] as a [different species name here].
  • Re-choose spaceship.

Sci-Fi and Fantasy:

  • Re-choose abilities (if flags weren’t used).

Thriller and Horror:

  • Try again to save certain characters.
  • Try again to kill certain characters.
  • Get the perspectives of deceased characters.
  • Get hints into who the killer might be (could work for mystery too).
  • See [character’s] past.
  • Retry collecting all evidence (could work for mystery as well).
