Citadel WiP (Updated: 3/11/2022) - A Medical Drama with Romance

Is there suppose to be an error when Dr Grey’s part comes up in Ch7 or is that where the demo ends?

I found a few pronoun errors:

Eli and Vic were female in my play through.

If you decide to talk to Ms. Lin in Chapter 5, you’ll actually meet Dr. Sloan. Vic’s first appearance is in Chapter 6 in the OR. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Just wanted to say that I am really enjoying this WIP so far! It’s very reminiscent of Open Heart from the Choices app, which I love… Even if I did end up passing out in the OR, as you do. This is why I should not be a doctor :joy:

I wonder if there’s a way to impress Victor without being so exhausted in the end.

I managed once to do a good job in the OR without passing out. I think it’s related to what you eat for lunch.

Your MC will always be tired at the end of surgery since they were just standing for the past 7 hours! However, whether or not your MC passes out is dependent on:

The easiest way to NOT pass out at the end of the surgery is to choose to eat lunch. This is a guaranteed way to not pass out.

You can also NOT pass out if you choose to skip lunch and just eat a snack instead. However, that involves 1) having a good enough relationship with Davy for them to give you a protein bar 2) choosing the “correct” snacks at the vending machine and 3) choosing to hear Eli out on what they have to say about self-care instead of leaving. Only if you accomplish all three of these things will you NOT pass out in the OR after skipping lunch.

Hope that helps!



But then if you get the 3 snacks you’re late. Life is so unfair where is my perfect ending :joy:


Personally, I love the decision. I won’t spoil what happens, but choosing not to visit Ms. Lin pre-surgery led to probably my favorite scene thus far. The consequences for that are noteworthy. I recommend giving it a shot on one of the playthroughs.


I’ve finally had a bit of time to read Citadel, I’m only on chapter five but I’m so excited for this wip already! I’m really intrigued to see how our choices will affect how our story progresses, and this is such a unique idea for an interactive fiction story.

From reading it we can tell that there’s obviously a lot of medical knowledge, but it’s understandable for the reader which is great. I’m so happy we’re mutuals on tumblr so I can see how this story progresses.

I’m currently torn between Eli and Davy!

Keep up the great work :hugs:


Holy Hell I was not expecting that. I usually don’t play WIPs other than sequels for games I know I like, but I decided to check this one out since I’d like to become a doctor and I have a soft spot for romance in these games.

This is WiP is amazing. Like, the characters are so well written, I actually connected with them. The story is amazing, I was so upset when the demo ended, I cannot wait til the next update. And the romance (I did my first one with Eli) was amazing. Like oh my god, this has already become one of my favorite CoG novels and I’ve only done one playthrough.

I’ve fallen in love with this game and I can’t wait to see it released.

Edit: dammit I just played the Vic DLC and now I’m in love with Victoria as well.


Aww, thank you all! I just finished editing Case 1 (Chapters 1-7), so I can finally start writing some fresh content! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Update coming this Friday (September 24th) at 8 p.m.!

Check out my Tumblr for sneak peeks :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Looking forward to it!?

I really enjoyed the new material. I think Riley’s introduction is too abrupt though. I don’t know if I reread too quickly but I don’t have any idea who they are and it seems like they came out of left field.

Occasionally the jargon can be a little difficult. In the first case (before I memorized from replaying) I had a hard time with Mrs. Lin’s presentation. In the background reading it just says bile duct cancer that spread to liver but in the presentation you break out the official words. It was frustrating the first time to get it wrong when I did know the diagnosis just not the right word. Maybe there’s a way to work that in earlier?

In the new update, I was confused by “mets” until later context cleared up that it meant metastases.

But I really love this story and your characters! I am horribly undecided about which RO to pursue and I always look forward to your updates.
