Hello! I know it might still be quite early for a demo, but I’m just too eager to wait… Besides, I’m using this as an excuse to motivate myself and take this project seriously; I really don’t want to drop it because of lack of motivation. Plus, if I get some feedback, even better!
You’ve lived on Haven Island for years now, trained to be a soldier and protect the place that you have grown to call home. But somehow, safety and survival are not enough anymore. Not when the emptiness of your stomachs is slowly making its ache known; not when the water around your small island now seems too dark and too close; not when the need for freedom begins to claw at your skin.
But the life on the other side of the water is feral and deadly; you know its bloodthirsty darkness is ready to swallow you in endless painful ways.
So, you turn away from the sight of the distant darkness, and instead lay your hopes upon the beacon of dreams and memories that is set at the center of the island — its light so peaceful, yet as dangerous as the darkness of the Outside.
The Nexus — a machine that allows a person to connect one’s mind to another’s — awaits you, with a promise of freedom and a threat of corruption. For your people, you have offered yourself for the Connection, knowing it is the only chance that might bring your kind a new, better future.
You will dive in the memories of who might have had the key to the start of the apocalypse, with the hope of finding the cure to save what remains of humanity.
Mission Veritas is a sci-fi interactive novel set in a world where what remains of humanity has found refuge on an island, away from the dangers of an ongoing apocalypse.
But, when even the last haven left on earth is not so safe anymore, your kind is forced to relay on the Nexus — a machine that offers you a sliver of hope and weights you down with the threat of corruption.
For your people, you offered yourself to explore the memories of who might have had a key role on the making of the virus staining the world, with the hopes of putting a stop to the apocalypse and bringing peace to your people.
Will you succeed on your mission or will you force everyone to seek for another safe place with no true hope of survival?

DETAILS / MUST KNOW
The stats are currently useless, as I’m planning to work on them on a later date. If you find words or charts that don’t make sense, please just ignore them, I’m probably just trying to see what works and what doesn’t.
- Routes & Choices
There are multiple route for you to choose from, each one is different than the other. I’d play multiple times to see which of them is the most interesting to you. For now the game is only around 10k words total, with an average playthrough or around 6k.
The game will include romance, but I’ll take my time to better flesh out the characters first, before revealing who is a RO.
My schedule is a big of a mess at the moment and I’ll try to update as much as I can. Though I’m planning to have a general update every one or two weeks.
- Addictional Details
Did I miss something? If I did, feel free to let me know. All constructive feedback is welcome (though, I suggest you skip over any misspelling you find of your list might be quite long… I’ll get back to it I promise!)
Total (with code): 20 k
Average playthrough: 10.5 k

Just wanted to give you a heads up, I’m a Ning to keep the explicit to the minimum, but you never know.
