Hey there! This is my first ever try with using ChoiceScript, Broken Frontier.
Take control of a troubled outlaw on the frontier of the continent of Bellissia, haunted by a past defined by failed revolution and personal tragedy. Little do they know, that their life on the run will soon send them straight into the center of an adventure that could allow them to finally pick the pieces of their life up and rebuild something with them, or stomp whatever they had left into dust and embrace the broken frontier.
Mild Content Warning: While there’s nothing here that I’d consider explicit, nor is there planned to be, there is a fair amount of foul language, violence, and references to adult themes such as racial violence, sex, and addiction.
-Play a fully customizable begrudging hero with nonbinary inclusive pronoun options and plenty o’ aesthetic choices to pick from.
-Put down the swords and sorcery to embark on an adventure in a low-fantasy world inspired heavily by the American Civil War and the wild west period that followed it. Fan that hammer cowpoke!
-Four choosable player character backgrounds are available along with four choosable class options. Each will offer its own unique class/background action choices and sidequests down the line.
-Four-ish romanceable characters planned with the ability to choose gender preferences.
-At least two important non-romanceable characters are also to be part of the cast of allied folks being: Eva Briarwood, your eternal babysitting charge and employer, and Vance, your adopted deadbeat parent and mentor in all things less-than-legal.
Currently, only the first chapter is done (about 8,700 words), in which most of what you’re doing is building your character. I’m a pretty busy person juggling a full college course load, job, etc. so I can’t really promise regular updates, but rest assured I do plan on updating this in the nearish future as well as starting some other ChoiceScript projects I’ve had the ideas for floating around for a while.
Anyways, to play the most recent demo (V 1.01), go here: https://dashingdon.com/go/10543
Update: Chapter 2 is in progress and will be uploaded when it is finished. In the meantime, I’ve edited the demo of the first chapter and fixed a TON of spelling and grammar errors as well as added a screen for setting romance option gender preferences. Thank you everyone for all the positive feedback, it is super encouraging to see how many people like the game!
