Hello, everyone, I’m Samuel, the author of The Magician’s Burden, and the WIPS, The Enchanter’s Misery, The Twisted Village, Skeletons Can’t Press Charges, The Funny Thing About Nothing, and Winter of the Bovine.
As many of you know, Mass Mother Murderer was originally intended as a Hosted Game. However, it wasn’t a good fit for the label, so I submitted it to another IF publisher, Tales. It was accepted, which means I’ll be getting a $10,000 advance, followed by 25% royalties. I’m currently in the process of editing MMM and re-working it for their coding language, but I will keep you all updated on its progress towards publication.
You’re not a bad person. Not in your mind, at least. But when your little sister drowned, and you were unable to save her, your mother didn’t see it that way. And through her cold, constant neglect of you and her savage bouts of rage and hatred, she turned you into a monster.
Mass Mother Murderer is an epic thriller where you play as Gytha, a malignant narcissist serial killer determined to get revenge on her abusive mother by any means necessary. Struggle with feelings of intense rage, ambition, fear, and sorrow as you become the greatest villain your village has ever seen.
What there will be when the story is complete:
- An epic story that’s like a mix between “Dexter” and “Bates Motel” but in a medieval fantasy setting and twice as fucked up.
- 210k words total
- romance males, females, both, or no one at all
- 4 ROs: 2 male, 2 female (Devero, Garad, Cherihl, Abella)
- play as a magician and choose between 3 different kinds of black magic: phantom, possession, and elemental
- dozens of stats detailing your relationships, skills, attributes, knowledge, and more.
Differences from the original WIP:
- The MC is a malignant narcissist instead of a psychopath. They are callous, selfish, arrogant, etc, but they are not completely sadistic and ammoral, and they are not completely incapable of love or empathy.
- The MC will try to save their sister, Efastia, instead of maliciously watching her drown.
