Will end up being a pretty huge game. Will you be the persecuted or will you be the persecutor? How will your actions affect and shape yourself, the world and the ones around you? If you pick either age you could choose to support and rescue the children. While i dont like forcing options, you will at first help the children at least till you are out of the city.Locked in a containment cell with impending doom isn’t something anyone wants to wait out like a still fish lol. At this point, you can either become their leader or take your chances by yourself (as im pro free choice i want to try and not force an option as much as i can.), if you choose to become the leader of these children, you will involve yourself in a colony management and life, a bunch of these children are lost scared and a very blank slate, one you can write on. But, if you think making a town in the middle of the wilderness with a bunch of adults is hard, try doing it with only individuals newborn to 17 (i might actually up the age of killing because the pc would seem so close to just being free of persecution. All they would have todo is age one year.) As a persecutor you want to remove these young individuals, they are taking up too much food, they are too high in population, and they challenge the world in ways that scare the immortal elders. Of course not everyone will support this, and you will get outside help along the way. Start a revolution to over take the elders or just do your best to stick it out, out of the way.
So many different options and branches i want to add that it would be impossible to discuss them all here.
I will add on though,
I plan to be as gender inclusive and preference inclusive as possible.
If any non binary, transgender, etc individuals see this, and theyd like to help with this i would appreciate this. (i was looking over my gender and identity selection today and i realized it would have to be fixed. Because if you identified as female why would you be wearing trousers? just realized that it needs to be rethought and such)
Google is not really good at giving me a 100% understanding of such things.
Yes, it can tell me what it is and all the stats and such, but i can never tell me what they face, or what they feel.
Emotions and experiences are what truly bring writing alive.
I plan to be as open and acceptant of suggestions as possible
if you have a suggestion, i will listen and do my best to incorporate it the best way i can while still staying true to my vision.
I plan to not bite off more than i can chew
Some individuals may look at this and be like, dude look at your huge plans you already are. But, what i mean right here is i will be taking this piece by piece. If i’m making a character, you meet them once you will hear of them again. No oh this person helped with one mission now they are not important. I mean to say that, i will do one character at a time to an engaging depth then go onto the next. One area/ branch at a time then the next.
Making a project this big, it is easy to lose track of quality when you also look to quantity.
Which is why i want to treat every aspect like it is a small project. Small but well fleshed out.
@will hope i answered questions sufficiently, and sorry if i went off on an unrelated game tangent lol.
Main selling point would probably be the planned depth and free choice.
any other questions of course ask, it is as i said impossible to describe every where it could possibly go.
if i didn’t hit home with what you wanted, i apologize.
Have a nice day, Hope this helped ^^
