Hello! My name is Amy, author of Infamous! It’s a story that follows you, a lead singer of a band, who is chosen to go on tour on a Battle of the Bands reality show. Fame, fortune, mess, drama and angst all on camera!
I had made a post months ago when I first made Infamous, but it had locked since I put it in the wrong place. Sorry about that! Quite a bit of time has gone since then, and the story has been trucking pretty well ever since! With Part 1 of Ch. 2 out, I feel like it’s been long overdue to make a post in the forum! I am actively fixing the codes and errors, and you can follow the progress of the game on my tumblr. Thank you!! Hope you like it!!
You’re going to be a superstar, no matter what it takes.
You and your friends have been in a band since high school, when all you were was a lead singer to a band that played out of someone’s garage and did occasional birthday party gigs for the neighborhood kids. after years of grinding, your band has yet to make it big, but has managed a small and dedicated cult following. All you and your bandmates want is to see your names in glittery lights, traveling the world to perform for millions of fans.
Your chance comes in Misfit Alley’s Battle of the Bands. After auditioning every year with no success, your band has finally gotten the opportunity to tour across the United States and open for the biggest band in the world, performing against other bands in the hopes that you win and get signed.
As you perform, your fame rises and you can see the dream coming to fruition. But with fame comes problems of its own, some that might just ruin you and the band you swore to take to the top.
Infamous is rated 18+ for explicit language, explicit sexual themes, drug and alcohol use, violence, morally questionable behavior, and more.
About the Game
- Customize your MC (the lead singer of your band)'s appearance and personality, as well as their public image and persona. Are they loved or hated by the public? Controversial or appeasing? Humble or arrogant? Fame and money-hungry or simply there for the music?
- Following that, work on your band’s public image and whether they’re mainstream or underground, depending on the choice of music you release and what kind of promo you do. Is your band hated by parents due to its explicit content or is your band squeaky clean, perfect for a mainstream label?
- Engage in fiery romance with an array of wild characters, including some that may just get you into hot water with the rumor mill.
- Create your own lyrics and decide whether you want to be a genuine artist or the face of a brand.
- Get rich and famous ! Isn’t that what you’re here for?
The Band Manager: Orion Quinn ✮ he/him, 35 ✮ [RO] – strict and reserved, Orion is the antithesis of what a rockstar is. Some call his cold and uptight demeanor having ‘a stick up his ass’ but he calls it being business focused. Orion is all about bringing the band to the top, which includes being professional at all times.
Special romance route: you can choose to have been chasing Orion for years, to no success (until now?)
The New Addition: August Pierce ✮ they/them, 26 ✮ [RO] – With the exit of your bandmate, August has taken her place as the band’s drummer. Usually shy and reserved, that all goes out the window once they start playing. You wonder if their isolation is less a personality trait and more the fact that they’re in a band with longtime friends. Doesn’t matter–seems like it’ll take a while for you to get close to them regardless.
The Idol: Griffin/Gina ‘Gigi’ Reign ✮ he/him or she/her, 28 ✮ [RO] – the spunky, charming and controversial lead singer of Misfit Alley and now your mentor, G Reign is currently the most famous person on Earth. Everyone either hates them, wants to be them, or wants to fuck them. Of course, this means a slew of trouble if one gets close to them…that is if they even allow it.
Special romance route: engage in an affair / engage in a strictly physical relationship (that can lead to a romantic one) // poly route with Victoria Valentine
The Rival: Seven Lawless ✮ he/him or she/her, 27 ✮ [RO] – once your best friend or ex, they are now your rival and the lead singer of Soft Violence, another band competing for Battle of the Bands. T hey hate you. Still, the line between love and hate is a whole lot of passion.
Special romance route: can either be an ex or a former best friend, enemies to lovers.
The Girl Dad: Sebastian Holland ✮ he/him, 33 ✮ [RO] – a normal and friendly data analyst, Sebastian isn’t about the music scene…but his daughter is and she’s a superfan of your band. Sebastian is your typical ‘nice guy’ almost too nice, sometimes, and has been dragged along by his daughter to follow the Battle of the Bands for her birthday. He’s just a normal civilian. The last thing you should do is get to know him, right?
The Eye Candy: Victoria Valentine ✮ she/her, 27 ✮ [RO] – G Reign’s wife, she’s an upcoming actress and model. Victoria has been G’s eye candy since they came up on the scene, but you can almost sense the tension between them. And the way Victoria seeks shelter in someone else…that could be you.
Special romance route: engage in an affair // poly route with G Reign
Rowan Hart (he/him) – guitarist
Iris De Luca (she/her) - keyboardist
Devyn Powell – (they/she) bassist, background vocals
