I won't do it, but I think that your main problem is announcing your project BEFORE thinking about the plot. It might seem a tedious and boring thing to gather materials and carefully plan all the storyline, and, well, it usually is, but it pays off.
I have to agree with this. A few posts back, you mentioned that you were going to START planning the plot and DWAM responded with shock. The reason he reacted that way was because the plot should have been the FIRST thing you decided on, not something you picked out partway through scripting it.

The plot is the thing that makes the story run. Without it, there really isn't anything. That's why it's absolutely important to have one before you begin anything else. For my own fangame, I wrote out a rough draft of the script before starting anything else (Yes, all 200+ pages of it.) That way I knew everything I needed before starting. It wasn't even in Pywright format, it was just a Word document. If you do that, things will be much more organized. Plus, if you announce that you have anything more than 30 pages written, people will start to see that you're serious about this and might get excited about it.
I can tell from your repeated attempts that you REALLY want to make a fangame. If you want, write up a rough draft and send it to me. I'll try to proof read it and help you fix any kinks that might be still be in it. Don't give up.
