EDIT: Oops, thought I’d maybe specify; This would be the same love interest, the same character/person, you’d just get to choose if you want them to be a girl or a boy!
I’m new to the Episode forums, and I’m so sorry if I’ve misunderstood and this is in the wrong category!
I’m currently making my first ever Episode story, and actually hoping to get it ready in time for the Missed Connections contest!
I was hoping to include the choice between a female and a male love interest in my story, but I’ve heard this takes a LOT of time, and that you shouldn’t do it for contests that have deadlines?
I was just wondering what your guys’ opinions were, since this is my first time making a story, do you think having the choice between a male and female love interest will be too much coding/branching/etc because the deadline is this month, or do you think it’ll be 100% fine?
Also, if you’re entering the contest yourself, are you adding the choice between a male and female love interest too?
- No choice of gender. Just write the story with the love interest either as a boy, or a girl, set in stone.
- Choice of gender. Let the reader choose if love interest is a girl, or a boy.
