(Gordon): Keep running!

(Kenneth): What do you think I’m doing?

(Paul): Wait!

(Gordon): What happened? Why did you stop?

(Paul): I had an idea where we can hide this box here!

(Kenneth): Dig a hole? Near that tree? It doesn’t seem like a good idea …

Trust - I know what I'm doing

:black_medium_small_square:(Paul): Trust me, I know what I’m doing!

:black_medium_small_square:(Kenneth): If you are so sure …

(Gordon): Quickly, I can hear the police siren from here!

(Paul): Right. Now we just need to-

strange noises around

(Kenneth): Did you hear that? Are they?

(Gordon): It was probably the wind, let’s go!

(Paul): No matter what it was, let’s go back before they reach us!

They start running, but one of them stays behind

Weakness - Let's wait

The relationship between Paul and Gordon was improved. :white_check_mark:

(Kenneth): Help, something-

(Gordon): Kenny? I’m going after him!

(Paul): No, wait! The police must have caught him!

A strange movement begins to appear in the darkness.

:black_medium_small_square:(Paul): Who’s there? Gordon? Please…

Yellow eyes appear in the dark

(Paul): What is it? This shouldn’t be here … stay away … I-

Screams and more screams of dread … until silence takes over

Impatience - We don't have time

Well … welcome. I believe that we had not yet been introduced. I am the narrator, will I guide you through this somewhat frightening journey? Three men lost in a forest fleeing and hiding something … interesting isn’t it? Interesting was the cruel fate that each of them had. I believe you have realized how things are going to work.

During the trip, you can make some dialogue decisions of your own accord, finding the best decision. However, some more important decisions will be made as a team, everyone will have to vote and decide the future of 5 young people. Depending on what you decide, it will have mild or serious consequences, such as changing relationships, dialogues and the fate of each one.

Make your decisions carefully, don’t you want them to have the same fate as men? Right? That was just the beginning. All of this was inevitable, but from now on things will change. Everyone can live or everyone can have a cruel destiny. Be attentive, make decisions carefully, solve the mystery and most importantly. Make them survive!

I almost forgot … about the “hidden details” choose only 1 at a time, or it will mess up the story. After reading everything, go back and make different decisions.

I placed some symbols (:black_medium_small_square:) during the sentence to indicate that the sentence was changed by the decision made.Look at the example below:

:black_medium_small_square:(Kenneth): If you are so sure … [This speech was changed due to the choice made]

(Gordon): Quickly, I can hear the police siren from here! [This speech does not have a symbol, that is, no matter what you have chosen it will still happen.]

If anyone finds any errors, let me know. I will try to fix it as soon as possible, as this is in the testing phase!

Today was just a light introduction, but from the next episodes things will be interesting!

Patience. If its police, that box will be found pretty easy due to the dirt being moved around.

So the black boxes are what we have to look out for in the different branches, right? Maybe instead of repeating the same story multiple times, you could type it all out once, mark the changing parts with black boxes and then only include those under the the different branches.

Maybe instead of dialogue the changing parts can be described. So you can say “Gordon and Paul both decide to wait for Kenneth”, instead of having them both speak.

Regardless, I really appreciate all the effort that went into this.
