• Each character has their own set of points, and they all start with a score of 0.

  • Readers can gain or lose points depending on what choices they make.

  • You can add points to your actual characters, or you could create a new "character" and name it ROMANCE, FRIENDSHIP, HONESTY, etc. to create a point system for each category.

Adding & Subtracting Points

There are 2 ways to add/subtract points from characters:​

1. A simple @ command:


2. Right next to the character's name during dialogue.

CHARACTER +1 (animation)

Dialogue here.


CHARACTER (animation) +1

Dialogue here.

Different Outcomes

To create different outcomes depending on how many points were gained or lost, you will need to use the if/elif/else code using this format:

if (CHARACTER = 1) (

} elif (CHARACTER > 1) {

} elif (CHARACTER < 1) {

} else {


< means less than
> means greater than
= means equel to

Setting Points

To set a character’s points to a specific number, or to reset it back to zero, use these commands:


GIRL (talk_flirt)
Hi, it’s nice to meet you.

“Be nice” {

BOY (talk_happy_smile) +2
Such a pleasure to meet you!

} “Be neutral” {

BOY (talk_neutral)
Oh hi.
@BOY +1

} “Be mean” {

BOY -2 (talk_arms_crossed_angry)
Don’t talk to me.

Later on in my story, I would use the if/elif/else code to create different outcomes based on how many points the reader has.

BOY (talk_flirt)
Do you want to go on a date with me?

if (BOY > 1) {

GIRL (talk_excited)
I would absolutely love that!

} elif (BOY = 1) {

GIRL (talk_shrug)
Yea that sounds fine.

} else {

GIRL (talk_repulsed)
Ew as if, loser!


Comparing Points

If you want an outcome based on which character has more points than another character, you would use this for the if/elif/else code:

if (BOY > GIRL) {

#this is if BOY has more points than GIRL

} elif (BOY < GIRL) {

#this is if BOY has less points than GIRL

} else {

#this is if BOY and GIRL have the same amount of points



Showing Points

If you want to show readers how many points they have, you will have to use the if/elif/else code to show each individual point score up to the maximum amount of points:

if (CHARACTER = 0) {


You have 0 points.

} elif (CHARACTER = 1) {


You have 1 point.

} elif (CHARACTER = 2) {


You have 2 points.



...and so on.
