It is a tale as old as time.
You join a game. The premise sounds interesting. Perhaps a friend or a secret crush is in it. Perhaps none of your usual co-writers are in it. Maybe the narrator was insistent that they will only start once they have x number of players, and you were feeling charitable at that moment.
It is a tune as old as song.
The game is off to a roaring start. Everyone is exploring their new characters, establishing their character’s role in the story, figuring out the other characters (and other players).
And then - record scratch - it is over.
The next person to move, does not move (They move in all their other games, though). Someone promises a move “soon” but “soon” is an abstract concept. Someone logs off and never comes back. Nobody responds to “gentle reminders”. Someone gently reminds you that people have lives too and we all should be kinder to each other. Whatever hopes and dreams you had when starting the game runs dry. A free user retires for a new and hopefully more active game, and you start eyeing the ‘retire’ button yourself. The narrator starts two new games.
The story never ends. In fact, it barely even begun.
Welcome to RESET, where we turn Storium’s biggest problem into a concept. ;)
