Big noteworthy change to be taking place - today I’ve changed the beginning stats to some extent for all of the pre-named MCs. This means routing is going to change from what people are used to, making content-by-character either harder or easier (depending) to reach. Thusly I’m going to express the beginning stat changes here for each of the characters:

Adam: Lust +2, Wrath +3, Sloth +5, Gluttony -2, Greed -3, Envy -5, April -2, Gran -7, Jack +2, McCready +6, Sean -3, Sonya +2, Sanity +2

David: Sloth +2, Pride +3, Envy +5, Wrath -2, Greed -3, Lust -5, April +8, Gran -2, Jack -8, McCready +1, Sean +5, Sonya -8, Sanity +4

Josh: Envy +2, Gluttony +3, Lust +5, Wrath -2, Pride -3, Greed -5, April -8, Gran +2, Jack +2, McCready +3, Sean -1, Sonya +8, Sanity +2

Mike: Greed +2, Gluttony +3, Wrath +5, Sloth -2, Envy -3, Pride -5, April -5, Gran +5, Jack +5, McCready +3, Sean -6, Sonya +5, Sanity -7

Sam: Lust +2, Greed +3, Sloth +5, Pride -2, Wrath -3, Envy -5, April -4, Gran -5, Jack +8, McCready -6, Sean -5, Sonya +4, Sanity +8

Chelsea: Wrath +2, Envy +3, Pride +5, Greed -2, Sloth -3, Gluttony -5, April +5, Gran -2, Jack -5, McCready +4, Sean +8, Sonya -5, Sanity -5

June: Gluttony +2, Pride +3, Greed +5, Envy -2, Lust -3, Sloth -5, April +6, Gran +7, Jack +7, McCready -5, Sean -4, Sonya -6, Sanity -5

Ashley: Sloth +2, Wrath +3, Lust +5, Gluttony -2, Envy -3, Greed -5, April -5, Gran -4, Jack -2, McCready +8, Sean -1, Sonya +5, Sanity -1

Some of you may notice that more stats are being affected per character- yes, this is true. The range of effect on relationship stats is also slightly broader in some cases, but the amount of positive and negative relationship changes remains even. Also note than custom named MC’s still don’t have beginning stat changes, and are intended to be blank slate in that regard.

It occurred to me that, if there was ever a time to edit the characters, this would be an optimal time as saves are already affected. So I’ve tried to nudge the MCs a bit more towards having a sense of individuality without going too wild.

ALSO- although it is only going to be viewable in a ‘visual sense only’, I’ve got character customization visible for what it will eventually be. Essentially, you’ll be able to make your own character but, at this point in time, not play with it. Sort of a proof of concept to show what I’ve got in mind. Chances are actually integrating this into the story won’t happen for a while, but it can be there, to show you. : )

P.S. Please note these changes are still just to my own copy, and alas it’ll still be a time before you get to see them. But, forewarned you now are. : )


#2876

I hope its possible to know what we are talking about during the string theory scene as a male xD Only because she reminds me of my niece and darnit i wont disappoint my niece


#2877

That’s a worthy request. I’ll see if I can add some Pride-specific based content to help with this.


#2878

More chances to prove my superiority over others :star_struck:


#2879

hmm, so far ive only been able to get sloth and im wondering what sins are available to us to become because i know a few we cant become


#2880

We’re always sloth right now.


#2881

Sloth is the slot that is open.

if you want to become another sin you’re going to have to take it from someone else.


#2882

I know probably shouldn’t ask this but I need to know. Is the game gonna get updated again?


#2883

Yeah, the author is rewriting it.


#2884

One thing that I am really curious about is how exactly NG+ will look like.
I am assuming that it’s either us being given some extra options in certain segments when playing as certain character or, us being able to play a character that is going through the game for the second time and has memories of the first time as they went through this.

Honestly I am more willing to believe it’s the former option but latter option is so much fun to imagine.

People are boarding a van and MC acting as if they already know everyone in the van explaining it as meeting them before through Sonia and then saying.

“Oh boy we are going to have great time. You know, every time I travel with a bunch of strangers I am always worried that they might rob me or something. Kinda irrational fear I know but still, I am glad that I am traveling with familiar faces and not some strangers that might be members of some death cult or something.”

Or MC being able to answer major questions before they were asked.

Like the game of 2 truths and 1 lie with April where we just piss her off by finishing her questions for her and answering them.
“Who is—
going to betray you guys? I mean I kinda know. And by kinda I mean I know for sure, but I also know that it’s rude to speak ill of someone behind their back, you know?”

Or maybe something that could be a little bit drastic but also kinda funny in a black comedy way:

Killing the one of the people that were meant to die before chapter 1 before the family get’s a chance to do it

While the idea of MC trolling everyone with their meta-knowledge sounds like fun I gotta admit I don’t imagine it being the intend of the author, mostly because doing something like that would require writing almost a completely new game.

But who knows?
I am just wondering what exactly does the author means by NG+ if it’s ok to ask.


#2885

Uh… Thats literally what I thought it would be in my head! All knowing MC making fun of everyone in a new game.

Anyway, ages ago I talked to him about it and he said he was interested in something like that but it would take a while and be worked in inly after the game is done


#2887

Just wondering is this still being worked on? I’m just wondering because the last update was two years ago.

EDIT: Also because the demo was amazing and i’m really hoping that it’s still being worked on.


#2888

: ) Yes, I’m still working on it. I’ve put in 3,803 words the past two days. And the Jack section I was working on before this part (which still isn’t fully finished) just kept tumbling on and on.

Phrasing it as rewriting the story is a bit… overmuch, perhaps. There were edits in structure that, certainly, I needed to do, and achieved (hopefully). Progress is simultaneously slow and not slow. I tend to be writing in spurts.

Sorry for the ghosting this past month- I’d actually intended to answer some posts much earlier but got sidetracked and just never got to it. I’ve had a waffling measure of depression this past year and I’d say I’ve been doing mostly well but sometimes just, sleeping more than I should and such. Or not writing as much as I feel I should, and such. But I’m doing largely okay, and working on improving. It just kinda comes and goes, so my writing does too.

Regarding the question concerning NG+… I think that I shall turn NG+ into a second game, rather than try to integrate it into this one. Because writing the game is taking so long, I want to produce a finished game while I’m still …young? ish? XP But there are things I want the story to explain which can only be done with what would be a NG+, or second game, because for me the story would be incomplete otherwise, even with a fully proper finish. So, I can say now, even though I have no idea how far into the future it might be, yes, there will be a second game. Possibly even a third if I truly feel ambitious about it. But I also, quite importantly, need to keep my own focus on the writing directly in front of me. Thank you for asking about it, though- what I’d planned to be one will now turn into a second game, someday. I’m far from being there yet, after all.


#2889

Hope you get a full recovery!


#2890

Can someone please tell me how NOT to die in this game. I’ve died so many times. I’m on the verge of giving up


#2891

It depends. All MCs have strong and weak points. The best advice I can give without writing a walkthrough is don’t trust anyone, run away from them until Sonya takes you to the hut (or something, I haven’t played in ages), there she will betray you, but you won’t be killed. Choose one npc to have the lowest relationship with and make everyone else like you. Check to see what everyone thinks of you on the stats page; you’ll know which ones want you dead. Pay attention to what answers the npcs want to hear. Don’t antagonize them. Make friends with the little brat, make friends with Sean. They can save you if things go wrong.


#2892

Can I bunk with Sonya? My lust is at 82%


#2893

I don’t know why, but i find that question super funny… to answer it though no you can’t. You can however choose to hangout with her before all the murder happens which can lead to a “bunking” scene of sorts if you catch my drift wink wink nudge nudge


#2894

I did a thing… XD
