Circus of Noir (Future W.I.P)

Note: I’m only posting this to get the idea out of my head so I can focus all my attention on my current WIP A Witches Path. I won’t do a demo until the first part of the story is off to host of games. Plus The story isn’t 100% fleshed out.

Story:
Welcome to the Circus of Noir! One of the best rising circus in all of the United States. It has the thrills of its talented Preformers and the chills of its strange Freaks. And you are the latest addition to the Circus Noirs Freak show with the freakish trait of being born with wings. Finally a place where you can be accepted and be yourself without fear or judgement. Or so you thought? In this circus there are two factions: The preforms, normal people who believe they are the stars of the circus and deserves the best treatment. And the Freaks people with strange traits and deformities that want equal treatment from the performers. With all this inner conflict you’re the only one that seems to notice the waves of murders that seems to follow the circus where ever they go. Can you find the killer that might be a member of the circus? Take on the stage name of the Fallen Angel and enchant the audience with your mesmerizing singing voice. Get to know the 6 romance options in each faction and choose a side or find a way to bring peace. Get closer to them in friendship or love and if strong enough join them in their acts. Help the Circus become number one in order to move the show to Paris. So your goals are clear: become one of the best star of the circus, become the best Circus in the United States, help the faction or factions, and stop the murders by finding the culprit and bring them to justice. Or will you become one of their many victims? Choose your characters appearance and the color of your hair and wings. Be gay, straight, bi, or single in this circus tale.

Sooo that’s basically the ruff draft of the story so far. Always open for opinions and suggestions.

You sure this is going to be based in America? Mirror sounds an awful lot like a Trap to me! Lol, just kidding :rofl:

Anyways, what would be an interesting twist would be if one of the ROs was the killer, and that (depending on how good the MC’s relationship with them is) the player can join forces with them… :grin:

No that’s my series after A Witches Path. But I do have characters and info about that too so if anyone wants to help out with that story I can always post its info.

lol I can see why.

This sounds awesome, will we get to choose the wing color?

Yup it will match your hair color. That’s another freak Trait you have. Born with hair that can be pink or purple and feels soft like feathers.

This is really quite great for a story. And finally a circus freak choice game :smile:

Ahem…may I ask about the stats? I’m pretty sure there will be Charisma and Perception inside 'cause of the mystery kind of genre. How about the other stats, if you don’t mind me asking?

Also, when did this take place? Is it in a Victorian Era? And there will be more characters (freaks) to add? And by the way, I love the characters too.

EDIT: Dear God, I ask too many questions :sweat_smile:. Sorry! I just got excited there

6 Likes

Hmmm I’m not sure yet? It’s my first dark detective like themed story so will have to think about what to add. I know one will be a stat that increases if your a freak or preformer. So if anyone has suggestions I’m up to hear them.

Probably just based it on this time period for now unless I change my mind and think of a era in the past that will work.

Side character freaks but still characters. Like the person in charge of the Freaks is a bearded lady. And thank you. Really wanted freaky characters that everyone would like to date lol.

Well, I’m excited for this! I mean, I’m excited for A Witch’s Path, too. But still! This is something to look forward to!

I’m sorry, I know that you don’t have that much in mind for this story yet, but do you think we’ll eventually have a signature song? Like in Fire Emblem Fates, there’s Hitori Omou. In Black Butler, they really like London Bridge is Falling Down. Or maybe, we can choose, or type in lyrics, that will have extra meaning for our character?

Maybe ‘Circus Standing’? And it’s one of those bars where Blue is “Freaks” and Red is “Performers” or something? Or maybe there’s a stat bar for Freak and Performer, separately?
