You’re in a place where people have super powers that relate to something sad in their backstory. You can befriend and date some of them. Also, weird mystery stuff is going on and you investigate it, mostly just to give you motivation to interact with the other characters. There is a heavy emphasis on characters, replayability, and general awareness by the game of how your decisions make one playthrough different from another (or at least the illusion of such awareness).
LoB is a new take on an old premise - what if for no reason a bunch of people got cool but dangerous super powers? Would they be ignored and live mostly normal lives? Hunted down and killed? Or worst of all - forced to enroll in a High School for super heroes?
In LoB, the world’s governments employ a rather unexciting and practical response - put them all in really, really nice internment camps to buy enough time to think of a better idea. And this is all explained to you in the game, so you didn’t really have to read this. Also, this background isn’t that important in the game anyways.
The current version ends at an error when you choose the tour. I’ve fixed the error on my own version of the game, but I am too lazy to fix it until the next update. If not for the error, players who finished the game would get the ‘secret’ code “I AM COOL BECAUSE I FINISHED A DEMO”, which, if put as a character’s name during a new playthrough, will do something special.
