You’re a detective, just trying to live a normal life with the pretense of a functioning adult, when your life takes a turn as you’re kidnapped by crazy demonic cultists. But these ‘cultists’ are not all they seem… but then, maybe neither are you.
Your promotion was only recently but you’re already being transferred and now you’re… different. You’re not yet sure what happened to you, but after that night, you’ve changed. Even worse yet, this new town you’ve moved to is suddenly being plagued by murders after years of not a single unnatural death and you’re not sure, but you’ve got a hunch what’s causing this.
Burwick Destination will be a 3 book series. You play as a detective in the town of Burwick, changed for the worst one night. Now, something dark and evil seems to lurk over your shoulder and you’ve become all too aware of the existence of the supernatural in the world. There’s been a murder and it’s not going to be the last. Work with your fellow detectives trying to solve the ever-growing case and try to keep up the image of a normal human being while someone, something, keeps trying to control you.
Will you fight the truth you’re drowning in? Or will you dine on the cyanide of whispering devils?
This game will contain
Mild violence (mostly the aftermath of)
Mild sexual content (optional)
The potential for unhealthy relationships (but that depends on the player and I can’t say you’re going to be rewarded for acting that way)
Demons and the lack of morals they tend to come with.
Yes, there is romance as well as friendship! Because I’m me and I love writing writing relationships. There are 4, 2 male and 2 female and they’re all romanceable by any gender.
Detective James Ko - 35 - bisexual - Your coworker and the lead detective on your first case. He’s more of a tough guy than a people-person, but he’s at least been friendly.
Detecive Aryn Meyers - 33 - bisexual - Another coworker. She’s… quirky, but sharp and can be professional when she needs to be. For the most part.
Detective Veronika Brose - 32 - no label - Another coworker. She’s laid-back and seems less a victim of Aryn’s personality than James. But there’s something about her… You can’t put your finger on why she, and that belief in and fear of ghosts she has, seems off.
Ivan Norwood - 27 - pansexual - A witness in your first case. A former author, now bookstore owner. He’s friendly, doesn’t seem odd. Oh, but he and his twin sister are witches.
