I reached a milestone today. I’ve got 11 Chapters passing randomtest more than 2,000 times.
The game currently plays into but stops two chapters short of the ending.
I have three more chapters that I’m currently wrangling with which complete the game.
I’d appreciate some feedback on this stage about the characters. Specifically, which character do you find most compelling and which character annoys you the most.
The project needs a rewrite but it’s in rough working shape. I’m going to be expanding and developing the character arcs and the writers path much more fully.
Thanks again to everyone’s support during this project. This has been a real learning process for me. It’s been frustrating at times but your feedback and encouragement has pulled me through and I’m extremely grateful for it.
This game is inspired by Asian Action cinema. John Woo’s The Killer, Once a Thief are big inspirations. But Saviour of the Soul is also a big inspiration and there’s a big fantasy path to pursue in Hong Kong Blood opera along those lines. I’ve also been inspired by some of Johnnie Tso films like Election which explore the traditions and politics of Hong Kong’s underworld.
There’s a guns and gansters path, a kung fu path, a writer’s path (currently underdeveloped) and a supernatural arc.
