Greater than Gods WIP (demo release Nov. 4th)

Hello, everyone! I’m here to present my WIP, Greater than Gods. The story is modern fantasy, with a completely customizable MC and four potential ROs.

Synopsis

You’ve recently noticed how your body seems to look younger than your age, so you’ve been convinced to take a quick visit to the doctor to make sure everything is in check. Somehow, this meant that your whole reality was about to change.

The current demo consists of the prologue and chapter one, being at a total of 28850 words, averaging 16144 words per gameplay. So far, it includes

  • Introduction and naming of the MC, as well as selecting some aspects of their appearance.
  • Introduction of the first two ROs and a third main character.
  • A first look into the conflict and world-building of the story.

About the ROs

Tegan Gutiérrez
Tegan‌ is a transgender afrolatina woman with 29 years of age (she/her, lesbian). She ‌has long and wavy ‌ginger‌ hair, which she’s just as likely to have loose or tied up in a ponytail or bun. Her freckles‌ ‌cover ‌her‌ ‌brown ‌skin and frame her amber eyes. Her face is rather round and chubby.

Her clothes can be classified as feminine, soft, and comfortable, usually in pastel blues or warm colors. She occasionally wears subtle jewelry as well.

She’s one of your roommates, and you consider her one of your closest friends. She runs a coffee shop and used to work as a photographer, though she currently keeps the latter as a more casual job.

Tegan is a hard-working person, she’s used to fighting for things to go her way. Yet the fighting hasn’t made her any less soft and caring for others, she still worries deeply for the people she considers close and treats people kindly when her patience doesn’t run thin.

Qiang “Evan” Liao
Evan is a 27-year-old cisgender man of Chinese descent (he/him, homosexual). Evan is his English name, which he prefers more. He keeps his hair bleached blonde. Despite having dyed it different colors before, he prefers the blonde best. His eyes are a dark brown which contrasts again his pale and angular face.

He likes to show skin when it comes to clothes, as well as bending the concepts of what can be considered feminine or masculine. He feels comfortable in his own skin and makes it evident.

He’s your other roommate and you also think of him as your best friend. He dropped out of college early, unable to function under the pressure. This makes him struggle to get a stable job now.

He is a fun-loving person, it’s not rare to see him leave the house when the sun sets and coming back in the morning. He’s got a laid back personality, Evan mainly lets things happen, rather than taking action. This sometimes makes him completely unaware of the situations surrounding him.

Wyatt:

Wyatt is a 25-year old nonbinary person. (they/them, bisexual) They’ve got a cat-like appearance, meaning they have cat ears, slit eyes, fangs, tail, their hands are clawed, etc. They have black short hair, clearly cut by themself. Teal eyes, an eyebrow piercing, and a port-wine stain across their right cheek. They’re also rather short and underweight.

As for their clothing, they tend to stick with dark purples or blacks, wearing mainly hooded garments, meaning hoodies or cloaks. They always wear their choker, which is a thick black band with a pendant shaped like two overlapping squares hanging from it.

They have a stoic personality and a lack of ability to easily bond with others, which contrasts their selfless nature accompanied by their need for justice. They’re detail-oriented and stubborn. They put way too many things on their shoulders and then take the blame when they don’t go as expected.

Zophiel:

Zophiel is a gender-selectable character. (can appear as a man, woman or non-binary, bisexual) They’ve got light brown hair, iridescent against the light. The length of their hair varies depending on their gender; as a man, it’s almost waist length, as a woman it’s a pixie cut and when non-binary, it’s slightly shorter than shoulder length. Their eyes are inhumanly blue, a subtle glow always coming off from them, and they have pointy ears as well as sharp teeth. They are over two meters tall.

Their fashion sense is, to put it simply, fancy. They take pride in being overdressed for any occasion, they favor golds, dark greens, and blues. They’re just as likely to wear a suit or a dress regardless of gender

Zophiel is quite arrogant and old-fashioned, which you quickly notice as soon as they speak. It’s clear they’re cunning and know more than what they show. It’s hard to read their true intentions, or where their loyalties lay. But what’s certain is that when they pick a side, they are loyal to a fault.

If you enjoyed the story I’d love to hear your thoughts! As well as any potential feedback you might have.

aaaa thank you so much! if you’d like more games with trans ROs I recommend Smoke and Velvet by @Roast (Fatima is a trans woman and Danny is gender selectable but if he’s a man he’s also trans) and Snakeroot by @cer! (Mallory is a trans man) It’s important for me to have people feel represented so I’m trying my best
