Hey everyone ! We’ve been wondering whether or not to do this for a while, but it’s been sidelined. Anyway, we’re in need of someone to code the game. Not help code it, actually code it ! It’s straightforward, I guess :~) Rohie would provide you with material and you’d be translating scenes to code. There’s really no other way the game is going to get written, and that’s something we’ve come to realize, so. Send me a message if you’re interested!

Hold up!

Woah woah woah!

I come back to the CoG WiPs after being gone for months, and this is one of the first things I see!?

This…is this intentional? Will the rewritten story have Zeus as the only father, or is that a glitch CAUSED by the rewriting? Cause that will affect my reaction to this whole situation! (Soccer-Dad Hades is still best dad!)

Also, henlo everyone. I’m back! Miss me?
No? Oh.
Okay then…


#13356

This is intentional according to the author.


#13357

I don’t know who you are but your are right. Hades Is my favorite father possibly. (Help me I only get stuck with Possieden)


#13358

I recommend Jim Dilató or Zachary Sergi

Okay aaaaahhhh seeing this gorgeous moodboard has inspired me to restart my own moodboard project. (after previously putting it away in frustration for the past 20-something days)

Chai, I hope you don’t mind me taking a couple cues (okay, maybe more than a couple) from your work for Electra and Elias and bb boi Xavier Serrano Aeson .
Imitation is the highest form of flattery?

Presenting the fruit of my labor...

Kasia Angelis

Daaaamn, take all the cues you want! I’m just happy that they inspired you to create your own. :grin:
If I may ask, is there any symbolism behind the telephone? It’s a really interesting choice and I’m curious about what it represents for Kasia.

(Also have I mentioned that I love it? No? Well, I love it.)


#13361

How many flashbacks will there be i really like the idea.


#13362

Three altogether.
We already have the first one, the second one will be about/inspired/during (?) the Salem Witch Trials.
The third’s topic has yet to be chosen.


#13363

Apparently Apollo might be a RO during the Salem Witch Trails from what I’ve seen during the discussion about that like a month or two ago.


#13364

Apollo: Marry me!
MC: …nah. I’d much rather marry your son who won’t be born until a few hundred years from now…maybe


#13365

What Apollo would get from me is a swift kick to the family jewels.


#13366

Apollo generally has horrible luck with love in most of his myths. A lot of the people he attempts to woo either commit suicide or turn into plants. I’m a little surprised that he keeps on trying here!


#13367

WAIT WHAT

Santi… I have a lot of questions about your mother.

IS YOUR MOM A P L A N T


#13368

lol no, they’re talking about the nymph Daphne that Apollo chased after. She turned into a laurel tree rather than succumb to his advances, and afterward Apollo wore wreathes of laurel because…he just…did not get the message, lol.

And considering that Santi exists I very much doubt his mom’s a plant, lol.


#13369

Watch this video and you’ll see what I mean. It wasn’t just Daphne.

Sounds like someone doesn’t know how to take a damn hint. Probably took it from his rapist of a father but oh well.

:purple_heart::purple_heart::purple_heart:

A telephone in essence represents communication, or the lack thereof. Kasia is a very relational character, so she has this innate desire to connect.

To me this object particularly symbolized Kasi’s relationship with the gods. It’s gilded and pristine, much like how the Council project themselves. She seeks to connect even with them, but they…don’t know how to, or don’t want to.

The telephone in the photo is too perfect. It looks more like a decoration than an actual working mechanism. Kasia is starting to feel like the idea of a meaningful relationship between her and those on Olympus is just that - a showpiece, another layer in the grand scheme of things.

She doesn’t want to believe that, though.

Oh, and the telephone being old-fashioned. It also finds a way to represent the gods. It’s traditional, which is basically the way they operate. Things have always been the way they are for them.
That’s how they’ve always thought.
That’s how they’ve always acted.
That’s how they’ve always treated their children.
That’s how they will continue to be unless something happens.


Thank you so much :heart_decoration:.

Stunning editorial - beautiful work!

I’m thinking that something in Russia would be an interesting flashback.
