Hello, friends! A few months ago I finished my first Hosted Game, “Score of a Lifetime”! People enjoyed it, with the caveat that it certainly could have been longer and there wasn’t as much branching/romance/everything(!) as there could have been. But I mostly received generous criticism and I’m certainly encouraged to write another one.
If you don’t want any information about the WIP before you jump in, here! Go! (~45k words total with some repetition between paths, nine chapters!)
For the rest of you, here’s some more info. I promise no major spoilers! Some profanity, some violence, some light sexual content (as of chapter 4).
There’s a lot of exposition to start the game, so if your eyes glaze over feel free to skip past it and you can read below when you’re ready. I’ll put the plot summary in the first reply, it’s a lot of words!
Alright, aside from that, I’ve completely outlined the entire game with major choices, branching paths, etc etc. If you’d like to follow along (or just play it when it’s finished), you can expect the following!
Sixteen full chapters, totaling over 100,000 words with an average playthrough between 35000 and 45000.
Six dynamic, interesting major characters.
Five Romance Options.
The ability (of course) to play as male, female, or nonbinary, with (of course) none of the content gated by gender or sexual orientation.
Eleven different End States, with five of those having romantic sub-endings.
And a partridge in a pear tree! Just kidding. No partridges in space.
Standard disclaimer, what you see on Dashingdon is a draft and subject to change (of course). I’ve quicktest and randomtested everything but I’m a tremendously sub-par programmer and likely broke something in a way I haven’t fixed. Please, please, please, hit me with any feedback (in thread, PM, or spokeswriter at protonmail .com) if i’ve written anything broken or with a typo or insensitive/offensive/etc. Okay! that’s all! Summary in next post.
