Hey!!! I’ve begun work on my new game As the Sun Shine’s Grey. In it, you play a thirteen year old kid who is a victim of a mass kidnapping. The three issues here are
The kidnappers aren’t out for ransom
One of you is killed every week
The government is not coming to save you
You must therefore find a way to survive in captivity and plot your escape all the while remaining one step ahead of your captors.
Before we begin though, I’d like you to understand that your character is only thirteen years old and this game gets violent and brutal. That being said, I ensured that there are only very few situations where violence cannot be avoided. But even those few situations may be too brutal for some readers.
Although Normega is a fictional place, the names, mannerisms and culture of her people are loosely based on the Igbos of Eastern Nigeria.
You, however are of clan Soulfa. A fairly recent formed settler clan. Therefore you may find this expected conformity loosened a bit when it comes to you.
Currently all I have are:
Prologue, 2300 words
I introduced the game here. My hope is that the reader is captivated or curious at least.
Chapter One, 9300 words
Pardon the lack of choices in this chapter, it gets more interactive, I promise. Here, I introduce some elements of the world you live in, and the game begins.
Chapter Two, 11700 words
The first hurdle, survive this night. Easy, eh?
Chapter Three, 15400 words
Fun fact, the migration taught by the captain is actually copied from how the Igbos migrated in real life.
Chapter Four, 21400
There’s a special route here. I reckon less than 20% of the players will see this one.
I am planning on updating a new chapter once every month.
As I have never written before, I am interested in whatever feedback you can provide. Thank you!

I apologize for being absent. With the COVID situation, I have far more free time on my hands than I have ever had in my life. Even though I am admittedly a slow writer, expect more frequent updates.
