Oh my goodness, this is happening.
Hi everyone!! I’ve kinda been on this site for a hot minute, and getting exposed to all the wonderful works has encouraged me to finally take the story I’ve been planning for years now and make it into something! So, without further ado, let me introduce Attollo!
Attollo is a cybernoir thriller set mainly in the fictional city of Attollo, a walled-off city located in the Atlantic that’s still dealing with the aftermath of a nuclear meltdown, aptly named ‘The Rapture’. What came from this was a rise in genetic mutations that resulted in ‘superpowers’-people possessing abilities that shouldn’t exist. Attollo was subsequently closed off using numerous wards to keep people from entering or exiting the city. Everyone believed, once this was completed, that the city would be an essential no man’s land. Unfortunately, things don’t always go as planned.
After several years of radio silence, you receive a message from your younger sibling that carries a strange sense of urgency to it. Either out of familial concern, or boredom, you embark on a journey from your residence to your siblings apartment in New Hampshire to see what’s wrong and then get on with your life. Too bad it’s never so simple.
Deal with cults, interdimensional entities, and far too many people with superpowers (where, for once, you’re the odd one out) in your journey to bring your sibling back from an underworld far out of your control.

Romance, and comments regarding romance
There are currently 6 RO’s planned for this game.
Pariah (NB, Mid 20’s, true identity unknown) - Attollo’s resident vigilante and the leader of the Triumvirate, a group of three that are working together to put an end to the criminal underworld run by The Crowes Court and Ovo.
Detective Vasilisia Soloveva (F, Late 20’s) - A detective and researcher working to restore Attollo to its former glory.
The Operator (M, Early 20’s, true identity unknown) - The city worker who controls all cameras in Attollo. Not much is known about him, and he’s rarely seen in person.
Dreamwalker (M, Late 20’s, true identity unknown) - A boogeyman that is known to enter the dreams of Attollo residents. One of the heads of Ovo.
Sysba (Gender selected by player, age indeterminate, original name: ‘Ymnar) - Sysba is an interdimensional being that is believed to be an Outer God, spawned by another for the purpose of destruction. A shapeshifter and a liar, Sysba enjoys watching the events of Attollo unfold.
Suha Sobhi (F, Mid 20’s) - Employed by The Crowes Court, the current government of Attollo, Suha works as a Judge, enforcing law and punishment on the citizens.
Romance in this game is entirely optional and will not be necessary for the main plot. In fact, in the original comic Attollo, I didn’t even have romance written! Therefore, although romance will give you some extra scenes and tidbits with characters, you don’t need it to play!
Chapter 2 is in the works and planned for the beginning of April.
All warnings are placed before the prologue.
