Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare‘s most renowned tragedies, the tale of two young lovers separated by a generations-long feud between their families.

Now you can recreate this literary masterpiece yourself and earn a rare stamp by unfolding the ill-fated romance of Romeo and Juliet in Storyteller .
Storyteller Gameplay Mechanics
But first, let‘s do a quick recap on how Storyteller works its narrative magic. Storyteller is a creative interactive fiction game developed and published by Followchain. As the name implies, you get to be the storyteller, crafting unique tales panel by panel like a visual comic book. The game features hand drawn art and animations, bringing your stories to life.
You‘re given an expansive cast of over 100 characters to work with, ranging from medieval heroes and fairy tale archetypes to vampires, robots, and werewolves. With the 7 different backdrops available, you can set your story in environments like a bustling city, a quaint village, or a gloomy cemetery. The sound effects and musical score add ambiance and emotion.
Storyteller also provides countless narrative pieces – props, actions, dialogue options, etc – for you to mix and match. Using these elements, you can create stories spanning multiple genres and styles, from light-hearted comedies to edge-of-your seat thrillers. The only limit is your imagination!
As you progress through the game‘s chapters, you‘ll also have the chance to earn secret stamps for recreating famous storylines, or putting fun twists on well-known tropes and cliches. Unlocking all 60+ stamps by solving these challenges is one of the core goals driving gameplay.
The Romeo and Juliet Stamp
The Romeo and Juliet stamp is found in Chapter 4, and as you may have guessed, obtaining it requires you to faithfully recreate the Shakespearean tragedy in Storyteller‘s interactive format. While there are many ways you could approach this, below is an optimal 6 scene storyline to set you on the path of propsperous love and bitter sorrow:
Scene 1: A secret wedding between Edgar Blakewell and Lenora Charming, two lovesick teenagers from rival families. Select the Chapel background, wedding props, and a heartwarming exchange of vows.
Scene 2: In a fit of rage, Edgar is murdered by Lenora‘s disapproving father. Use the City Street setting and the knife or gun props to dramatize Edgar‘s untimely demise.
Scene 3: Stricken with grief, Lenora attempts suicide by drinking poison, mirroring Juliet‘s fatal misjudgement. The Graveyard backdrop creates ominous mood.
Scene 4: Suddenly, Lenora wakes – the poison only induced a deathlike coma. Cue the stirring reunion music as Edgar weeps over his revived bride.
Scene 5: Joy turns to tragedy, as Lenora is killed once more, this time by her own hand using a gun or noose. Choose somber, melancholic audio.
Scene 6: Upon discovering Lenora‘s body, a heartbroken Edgar commits suicide using poison to join her in eternal rest. Fade out on a sombre final panel.[Tables and screenshots illustrating the scene breakdown]
Once your Romeo and Juliet remake unfolds through all 6 scenes, you‘ll be rewarded with the secret stamp to commemorate your triumph. You can find it added to your collection on the Stamps page.
Make the Story Your Own
Of course, you can take some liberties and put your own twist on the storyline if you prefer. Try using Hannah and Walter or Ariana and Dimitri as your protagonists instead. Swap the gruesome gun and poison props for something more family friendly. Just be sure to include the key narrative beats – secret marriage, love that leads to death on both sides, feuding factions.
With over 100 characters and endless combinations, you may also want to replay this challenge multiple times. Experiment with alternate endings where the lovers reconcile their families and live happily ever after instead of tragically perishing.
According to Followchain, less than 10% of players have obtained the Romeo and Juliet stamp, making it one of the more elusive achievements, so unlocking it will put you in an elite tier of Storyteller writers!
