I’ll mention upfront this game is probably only for those aged 15 and up, I’m not especially sure how that kind of thing works especially in other countries. There will be lots of swearing, violence, some mentions of alcohol/sex/drugs and possible risque content that will be completely optional if it ever gets put in at all.
Here's the basic Plot™:
The MC is a human. Not a witch, or a vampire, or anything of the sort. Just a plain old human. And they work for a group called The Agency for Protection of Magic Peoples and Creatures. Also known simply as POMPAC.
They sent our friend MC in to befriend and hopefully help these young people, since they themselves are around the same age. Their job is to get to the root of everyone’s issues, and try to help them out so they can live fulfilling lives. It is hoped that, one day, they will no longer need the aid of POMPAC and will be able to live on their own.
Sounds like a tough, but simple job, right?
Although… Life’s never easy when magic’s involved.
TL;DR this is a story about becoming friends with a gang of messed up magical folks. There is more to the plot than that though. I won’t say too much because spoilers y’know?
There will be some upsetting themes in the story but I don’t really want to put specific triggers here because none of it’s in yet. Also, it’s mostly all stuff that happened to the characters in the past if that makes a difference.
You can also romance the people! Or not, whatever floats your boat.
For anyone interested in that or just the characters here’s a little bit of info about them
Name: Ursula Gordon
Species: Witch, Elemental
Appearance: Long dark brown hair. Light blue eyes. Pale skin. 6’4"/193cm tall.
Personality: Usually quiet and unassuming, Ursula can seem difficult to get to know. But really she’s just a whole bundle of anxiety and nerves and once you break through that there’s a lot more to her as a person.
She has trouble controlling her magic due to her unstable emotions and frequent panic attacks, something you are there to help mitigate when you can.
Name: Dodge Keller
Species: Witch, ???
Appearance: Short black hair. Brown eyes. Dark brown skin. 5’11"/180cm tall.
Personality: Dodge is… very something. He’s certainly uh. Special. He’s not the smiley sort, to put it lightly. In fact, he probably hasn’t smiled in years. He’s quite angry really. One might say irrationally so. At least from an outside perspective.
He struggles controlling his emotions, much like Ursula. But his issues are quite different from hers. As is his magic.
Name: Nina Ramos
Appearance: Shoulder-length brown hair, ends dyed red. Amber eyes. Deep olive skin. 5ft5in/166cm tall.
Personality: Boisterous and occasionally rowdy, Nina is a force to be reckoned with. She’s strong in both physicality and presence. It’d be impossible to ignore her, even if you wanted to. She doesn’t seem to begrudge her turning either. In fact, she seems to relish what she’s become.
Apart from one aspect of it. The SLP. Sine Luna Plena. A rare werewolf-specific disability, if you will. It causes her to randomly shift even without the aid of the moon. Which is… not good.
Name: Arnold Fischer
Age: 24 (?)
Appearance: Long dark teal hair. Grey eyes. Fair skin. 5’8"/172cm tall.
Personality: Arnold might be even more special than Dodge. In a better way. He’s upbeat, friendly to a fault, and always seems to have a positive attitude about him. Despite his less than positive past. It’s admirable, that’s for sure.
But he was raised outside of human society, and so has trouble controlling his transformation. Thus, he avoids water whenever possible. Which limits what he can do.
Name: Raymond Song
Appearance: Short black hair. Dark brown eyes. Lightly tanned skin. 6’1"/186cm tall.
Personality: Ray is, to put it simply, everybody’s guardian. He’s the one who looks out for them, who does things they can’t do, who thinks about their needs when they might ignore them. He’s kind and caring, and snarkier than you might expect.
He doesn’t have any problems. Not ones he’s willing share, anyway. His job is to be burdened; not to burden others.
TL;DR anxiety personified, one angery boi, strong independent werewolf, the shape of water, and Group Grandpa
I will mention here and now that you probably shouldn’t expect regular updates. I am not consistent enough mentally to be able to stick to some kind of plan for that sort of thing.
I’m also not really looking to publish this. I don’t think it’d make the cut to be honest, since there’s going to be a lot of swearing and other things COG might not allow. But I do still plan to finish it and let people play it.

I enjoyed writing it and I hope you enjoy playing it! Let me know what you think, point out my mistakes/errors (there’s gonna be some I’m only human) and yeah!!! Have fun!!!
If you have extra questions, or want to learn more about the characters, feel free to ask me here or on my Tumblr! (I swear a lot and answer NSFW stuff though so be warned!)
November 8th Update: Corrected some mistakes in chapter one, and added the flashback interlude and part of chapter two! There’s less choices in this one, as it’s more about getting information and setting stuff up for now. But later on there will be more! Once you hit chapter two, you can also access the personal file of every character so far, and learn things about them.
I wouldn’t expect another update this month, as Spyro’s coming out and I’m probably going to lose 2 weeks of my life to that game. Feel free to tell me about any errors/mistakes you find!
