Alright, here we go.
While working on Dreameater, I ran into a wall otherwise known as goddamn bugs. To take my mind off it, I started working on a sci-fi title. Or untitle, since as you can see I am absolute rubbish at coming up with titles and quite frankly I’m tempted to just name it Sci-Fi Story #3.
In any case, here’s the summary.
You play a medical doctor, serving aboard a ship after First Contact. Now, the same aliens that had almost destroyed humanity two years ago have recovered and launched another attack - only this time, their target is not just humanity, but the entire galaxy.
In time, you find yourself commandeering a ship of your own, transforming it into a medical relief ship and using your experience as a physician to provide medical aid. You decide if you will be Switzerland, famously neutral and helping those in need, regardless of species, or if you will play the political game and uplift humanity to a higher status.
So. That’s the summary - a very short one. There will be romances, and I’m expecting this to be a very long game, though not exactly Tin Star level. I currently have about 10k words of a demo, and I’ll release it once I’ve finished a few missing scenes, though god knows when that will be.
UPDATE 25/4: After some deliberation, I decided to limit the demo to the prologue and first scene only. The second scene (which, together with the prologue and first scene, makes up the entire first act) is complete, but I’m not very happy with it just yet and it requires much more polishing.
UPDATE 20/5: Good Lord this thing is surprisingly hard to write.
Please note that this is a rough draft. The writing is not up to standards just yet. Comments on bugs and plot ideas would be appreciated over typos and such as those will be fixed upon line editing.
