I’m not so new to these forums, and am fortunately not so new to coding either. I’m currently taking a painful class in Robotics, in which we have to use C programming to operate our little weapons of doom. C programming is nothing like choicescript. (Save for similar aspects such as formatting, Boolean, etc.) I find the latter much easier than the former, but then again I never really bothered to grasp C until just recently.
Anywho, I’ve been working on a sci-fi/fantasy game (more like interactive novel) called ‘Eucharist and Droid’. It has blatant religious themes that I may get in trouble for in terms of portrayal, but I wanted to create something of a ‘Futuristic Holy Writ’ for my four (three?) year long project, the Transcendence of Self series.
Forewarning: There is incest mentioned; there’s nudity (not like that…); there’s domestic violence; there’s some blood and gore and heavy usage of profanity; the Devil is not quite Satan/Lucifer in this story; Jehovah is not what They seem; because there is only so much I can explain without spoiling the game, some things may seem to contradict each other/how they are described in the Bible or Judaism or any other particular source; and, last of all, the game doesn’t revolve around romance and action.
Romantic themes, however, will be used, while combat here is more of a ‘last resort’ option than an exaggerated, glorified thing up until Armageddon. I forgot to mention that this game goes from light to dark as the story progresses. Characters mature, their internal struggles intensify (a.k.a psychological horror?), and stuff happens.
You play as the protagonist, a sentient android who has a latent power given to them not by their Creator, i.e. the one to make them, but by a higher being from another dimension that nobody really knows about. (No, not quite God.)
In the first arc, Genesis, the protagonist will find themselves stuck in a battle between spherical aliens called the ‘Eucharists’ and the humans of the City of Pohliouri, which is not far from where you live with your Creator at the beginning of the story.
The story itself is told by some ‘otherworldly spectator’ who watches your every move. He will narrate your saga, starting from when you were born to when you are eight years old and then he’s gone to take care of some personal business. There’s a lot more to the story, but last time I tried to explain it and I ended up going on a tangent with the back-story.
Story described in one sentence:
Selfish beings recruit followers to later fight against those who oppose them in order to get what they want, succumbing to any means necessary.
The lore and whatnot is posted in this thread nearly everyday, which is gradually being added into the game’s ‘Book of Everything’.
There are seven cities total, each ruled over by a Lord. The cities are unique in that they each express a Lord’s personality and philosophy.
The following list shows you where you can read the character descriptions; they all tell you some information about the back-story, the current story, and other stories a.k.a. sub-plots.
