Swear this has been the best spring break ever. First I got Wayhaven. (Which is fantastic guys, I recommend it if you haven’t read it and need something to tie over the wait. That and playing RenaB’s WIP demo for Model Citizen. It’s what’s getting me through the wait for sure.) Now, this week is going to be Fallen Hero.
I’m really excited for the game, I got to agree with what others mention that yeah this game can feel a little tense and bleak which I call out for the fact the MC is so well written you get into their mindset and still have some autonomy about how they feel about it all in a sense.
LIke how my main MC? She is one who never thought she was good enough in her heroing days, but she LOVED heroing. She loved helping people and never expected a thank you or pat on the back. (When she got it though it felt like early Christmas.) While when the story starts off. She’s broken, full of pain in a way, reluctant in what she must do, but knows it’s the only ways she can be of help and maybe even use. Even if it means she has to become a shadow of the person she used to be and bring out parts of her she hates. (Though always try to keep the innocents clear of it all the best she can.) Though even as she knows this is a necessary evil and will become the villain to help everyone she can. She can’t resist her heroing tendencies. (be it saving someone, sparing someone, hell if we get the option in the future? Become a Robinhood-esq sort of villain) Though yeah. It’s more organic I feel than most other Villian stories that have come out in the last couple of years so super excited!
Also, my vain half has to agree with Idon’tlikeusernames. I want a chance to make our character take better care of themselves at some point in the series. (cause lets be honest they really suck at this thing called self-care and health.)
OR a great way to interact with the others is someone drags the MC out to try and work out the physical kinks and help them get back in shape. (Though I can legit see Ortega lecturing the MC on not eating well. No idea why I can just see the moemnt of
Ortega: -sigh- You know, I’d think after this long you would at least remember to eat twice a day? Nope, not listening, sit there and eat your soup and grilled cheese. Keep this up and I’m coming over with lunch everday so I don’t have to worry aobut you starving yourself."
