This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

"Dark Reign" - text-based simulator of the Dark Lord
« on: August 02, 2022, 10:23:10 AM »
Hello! I would like to present my text game/interactive fiction. „Dark Reign” is a strategy text game in which the player takes on the role of a Sauron-style Lord of Darkness with the goal of conquering the world. He will carry out his plans by making various decisions. He will build his army and send it into battles, weave intrigues and deceptions, create secret spy networks and sectarian cults, recruit agents and commanders, corrupt representatives of Free Peoples and sow discord among them, collect magical artifacts and perform sinister plots. Link to download: This is an html file that opens in a browser, but You can play offline. Note – one game takes about 1 hour, but the premise is that the game can be approached several times, each time making different decisions, getting different results and discovering something new. Feedback is very much welcome. Very, very much.
So about challenges... I am newbie creator. I created this game using Twine editor, so I am not true programmist, but still, it helped me to learn something about coding, how to use variables etc. It was hard, but also fun, to create connections between elements of the game and the ways in which they interact with each other.
Also, version: (yes, it was published on itch, so please believe me, that it is not scam).

I just tried this game and I love it so much!
To be honest, I'm delighted. You are such a good fellow that you were able to do it quite beautifully. I didn't finish the whole game, but I liked the beginning.
In general, I also do a little game development, and so far what I can boast of is the daily challenge sudoku. Rate it if you are interested in playing Sudoku  ;Dby the way, it develops logic well
