Week 14 progress: Code!

So for the final project, I decided I want to make a program to tell the story! I don’t know if a program would necessarily count as a format all its own, but I do know how to make a program have images popup, and I believe (though I’ve not looked into it) that having an audio file play isn’t too far beyond that, though if it is I can easily provide links to Youtube. The basic idea is that this is a text based choose your own adventure story game where you go through the story and may find different things happening, or potentially, your death, from taking different paths offered. I want to take the map idea mentioned in the assignment post and expand it into a small minigame perhaps, where, if I can find (or make) a good enough map, I’ll have it display at times with choices on which direction to go based on events, as well as some other possible ideas. For now though, I’ve only started the earliest parts of it and have a couple images in mind to show early on. Anyhow, here’s a quick picture of the code from the beginning of the program and one of the first pictures that’ll pop up, of
your character.

I may end up making a Github repository for this so I can link to it for code viewing instead of just giving pictures of it or copying it into the post since the text becomes almost incomprehensibly blurry (Github is an online version control and management service for code that can be used to store, access, share, and jointly work on software with other people). In short what I have created right now though is just a simple start up menu with the start, about, and quit options(pictured), as well as the first few moments of the game and first choice written (not pictured).
