Hello. I’m alive. Here’s a side project I’m working on, that’s influenced by east-asian culture.
.𝐇𝐨𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐲 𝐖𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐧 𝐒𝐮𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐲.
Six years ago everything you ever knew came apart in the blink of an eye.
The Emperor is dead.
You’re on the run and cursed to die.
The people you’ve considered to be your friends have turned against you.
But the worst part? Is that none of it was your fault.
You’ve been named as the treasonous heir and forced into hiding.
After your fateful escape, someone hunts for you. And it isn’t just the people of the palace or the guards. It’s someone who hates you more than the empire itself and he’ll do whatever it takes to see you dead.
Watch your step. Watch your back, because whatever you do and however you do it, he will find you and follow you to the ends of the earth.
What you’ve done to him is why he does this and it is simply because you exist .
The curse you’ve been saddled with only causes complication and the only way to break it is by trading one soul for another, but unfortunately, it’s never as simple as it seems.
Uncover the paths of secrets and deception. Learn the truth and weed out the evil within.
Either way, someone must die.
- Play as a male, female or non-binary character.
- Customise your appearance, personality and more.
- Face your past. But which one?
- There are secrets to be uncovered but sometimes secrets should stay as it is. Hidden away.
- Visit one
or morelevel( s) of the hell.
- The enemy is closer than you think.
◦ Zhi Lan (F)
The daughter of the general of the imperial army. She was once your friend who now hunts for you.
177cm/5’10. She has dark smokey hair that reaches her mid-back, a part of it tied up into a ponytail with a long silken red ribbon. Her eyes shining as brightly as the sun, it glows a dangerous amber. Skin with a shade just lighter than her father’s tanned, it’s fair, a scar running from her cheek down to her jaw.
In conflict with her duty to the empire and her past relations with you, others may find it…exploitable.
◦ Huo Yujin (F/M)
The ruler of the kingdom of blood roses. They want revenge for their kingdom. Blood for blood. Except there is only one person they want to bleed.
(F) Huo Yujin:
175cm/5’9. She has long, stark white hair, the longest you’ve seen. It’s been tied into a long ponytail, a golden hairpin securing it in place. Her eyes are as cold as a winter’s breeze, shimmering with the colour of an icy blue. Skin with the shade of porcelain, she hides it with her robes.
(M) Huo Yujin:
180cm/5’11. He has long, stark white hair twisted into a braid that drapes over his shoulder. A golden hairpin, split in half, acts as a collar chain. His eyes are as cold as a winter’s breeze, shimmering with the colour of an icy blue. Skin with the shade of porcelain, he hides it with his robes.
After surviving a tragedy, burn marks aren’t the only thing that has left them scarred.
◦ Sebastian Beaumont (M)
The innkeeper with a past. He likes to help so long as you don’t pry into his secrets.
180cm/5’11. He enjoys wearing bamboo hats that cover his short brown hair, hair that he occasionally ties into a ponytail. His eyes are a warm hazel, comforting and kind. Skin with a dark shade, he wears a thin sapphire chain around his wrist- a gift from his father.
While he exudes a gentle air, he shares more similarities with your past than you’d think.
◦ Augusta/August (F/M)
The killer who lurks in the dark. They owe a debt that must be paid, be it with their life, they will pay it.
170cm/5’7. She has dark blonde hair, almost perceived as brown. It stops by her shoulder, which she sometimes ties up into a ponytail with a thin, short ribbon depending on her mood. The colour of her eyes is an unusual pale colour and her skin, a shade of a yellowy tan that’s been littered with faint lines of scars.
172cm/5’8. He has dark blonde hair, almost perceived as brown. It’s cut to a medium length, that he ties with a thin, short ribbon. The colour of his eyes is an unusual pale colour and his skin, a shade of a yellowy tan that’s been littered with faint lines of scars.
As carefree as they may seem, they are calculated, always having something up their sleeves.

As for feedback I’m mostly looking for typos, bugs, continuity errors and grammar.
Stats are confusing and horrible so…I’m sorry about that :]
I also wanted to change brother/sister/sibling to ge/jie but I don’t know the gender-neutral term for it.
(that’s what happens when your mandarin is rusty as hell)

Regarding The Fifth Horseman: Fear. If you didn’t see on my tumblr post, long story short is my laptop combusted on me and I lost all my files to the rewritten version of the game which was a lot and I haven’t had it in me to rewrite all of it again.
So…as much as I hate to say this, it has been cancelled. I may go back to it once I’m finished with this one, though the plot may completely change and will take a long time before I actually start writing for it again.
