Infimus! - Supervillainy, Self-Loathing And Shapeshifting (MAJOR UPDATE: The Mask, Calling)

Stats aren’t implemented just yet. But I’ve uploaded a blank stats.txt scene because dashingdon crashes if you click on stats and there’s not even a scene for them, so that should work.

@Hector_Lopez That should be fixed in the version I uploaded just this minute. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The errors that are happening in this particular scene all seem to be indentation bloopers. They probably aren’t aligning like columns in the raw text, which can cause things to go loopy when nesting a few different layers of choices.

Yep, that’s it. Think I’ve rooted out all of them, but I’ll give that scene another look after lunch, just to be sure.

Also I’ve fixed an issue with pronouns not displaying correctly.

There may be more in that scene

Got it, fixed. Thank you.

I really like the plot and the immersion and world creation. Those are the structural pilars holding up the story.
However, the plot felt a bit rushed at certain places like when after discovering our masked identity V calls out our name or like during her interview the last part about working together.
Really love the friendly banter and humour Olaf brings into the mix.

Error :

Few days “after/later” you

Thank you, fixed it. Verve knows your name because you told it to the Fox in front of the whole Hall, and she was present. I should’ve made it clearer, in hindsight.

Mmm, I’m not happy with her instantly asking you to work with her either. I’ll probably move that to a scene later on with her.

Yeah I agree but mostly I meant regarding the pacing. Taking things down a bit slow. You provided a perfect example yourself -

Keep up the good work :beers:

I really like the concept for this one! Can’t wait for more, especially when we can start wrecking havoc >:^)

Okay, fixed a few more issues during the interview and got some testing apps working. Hopefully a lot less bugs going forward.

Got to the ‘play again’ screen, so that’s a win! The interview itself was fun, wet blanket though my MC was about agreeing to it. :grin:

This kinda looks better than Fallen hero, actually. Excited for the coming updates🙂

Got a pretty meaty update in the works. Will be out Monday at the latest. For now, I’ve uploaded a somewhat WIP version of the stats screen. There’s mostly cosmetic changes left (it looks a bit too busy rn), and maybe a traits system.

So, coming update:

  • Discover the nature and full extent of your powers
  • Pet the walrus
  • Get acquainted with Infimus’ RPG systems, which I’d describe as a combination of those of two of my favorite games - Disco Elysium and Fallout New Vegas.

New Vegas and Disco Elysium.:smiling_imp::smiling_imp: Best villain in games.

Anybody here seen the movie Tusk? Look it up! It’ll ruin walruses for you. Haha! @No_Ichor No need to play your game, for me, now. I’m doin’ that shit in real life!

You just had to bring that up, I still can’t watch anything with Justin Long in it and I usually love horror movies.

UPDATE 1: Method Before The Madness
Features:

  • Walrus petting (after popular demand)
  • Getting blasted with a flamethrower by a viking
  • First version of the player attributes system, which will include Archetypes (classes, basically), Skills, and Traits. Right now there’s only an introduction to skills and skill checks.

Roadmap here.

This is, in large part, just laying the groundwork for things to come. I plan to be done with a first draft of chapter 1 by the end of this month. That will contain, alongside character creation, an introduction to the game’s world and to certain characters that will play a crucial role through the game. I’ll then take some time to really polish that before moving on to the meat of the game. I want chapters to be something that can be played from beginning to end as a fully featured and fledged out experience: I think that format works best for the kind of constant updates the game will get. But that’s just the plan. Doesn’t usually survive contact with reality.

Thanks for playing <3 and as usual, yell at me about any bugs on here.

Found this:
Error when grabbing the dumbbell.
I think there’s a continuity problem if you select the walrus, nothing about the walrus pops up after choosing walrus.
I’m interested in reading further :slight_smile:
