It’s like study abroad, only with more blood-drained corpses.
Blood and Mist is my first attempt at writing a game using ChoiceScript. In it you play a college sophomore on a study abroad trip to Romania. Ostensibly the goal is to reach some hereto unstudied Saxon ruins in the region, but a number of things don’t add up. Including that most of the students (including possibly yourself) are not anthropology majors. You get the feeling that the bears and lynxes endemic to the region are the least of your worries. Can you survive? Will you even want to?
Currently, it’s about 33% finished at around 10,000 words. The plan is to update at least 5,000 words a week.

As this is my first attempt at a project like this, I’m all ears for feedback, especially with pacing. Also, the story is meant to have a gothic-horror vibe. I’m looking to creep you out, not disgust you.
Length wise, my goal is around 30,000 words. I’m aiming at the short end so I can use this as learning experience for a longer project, but still finish a complete game.
UPDATE 5/26/17: I posted a new version of the demo (same link) that should correct most of the typos.
