Hello all. I'm trying to work on a game that's largely text-based. I haven't really decided yet if there's a need for images/sounds/music, but I do know that I want a few meters to track things through the game, some hidden variables, and random events that will affect both visible and hidden meters. I'm hoping to make it a little like Depression Quest, but based on my ongoing experiences with insomnia, so there would be meters or numerical stats for tiredness, boredom, etc., and the variables might include weather, the length of time spent playing a game or reading something. Random events would be things like dogs barking outside or the phone ringing.
There are some good tutorials on YouTube for sugarcube by 'vegetarian zombie', and I believe Dan Cox also has one on sugarcube also.
