So, this is the prologue for Bad Ritual, a WIP game wherein you play a low rung grunt in an artifact retrieval corporation in the unglamorous Sanctum City. You consider yourself a fairly capable street-side officer, but when given a simple task that gets wildly out of control you’ll find yourself with a dangerous new job title and a new project straight from your enigmatic boss: destroy Siruud the Devourer, the handsome demon that you’ve bound to yourself.
Right now (counting code) the game covers roughly the first chapter and is a little under 10k.
Chapter two update !! This covers the last of the neutral route and the start of the two romance routes (Tahira and Siruud). I won’t bother with word count (as the addition of code and the repetition of passages because of code really balloons it), but it’s a significant addition !!
Siruud’s chapter three update !! There’s also been some minor changes to Siruud’s chapter 2 to reflect the feedback I got (with regards to Siruud’s reactions to you in the beginning of chapter 2, the spell Siruud casts on you, and the fight you have with Siruud in Maureen’s apartment), and introducing:
- An experimental stats screen !! Totally open for feedback on this one but generally these will be the stats that affect the story.
- An experimental achievements screen !! Followers of my blog indicated that they would like achievements, but largely preferred that they be hidden until the end. Accessible through the stats screen, this is my compromise between having achievements and not; surely it’s not perfect, but it’s also totally open for feedback !!
Tahira’s chapter three update !! With major corrections to how stats work, some achievement bugs ironed out, and more of the girl we all know and love.
Transitioned into Twine !!
