Sorry for the quiet month! I was busy with college related stuff and several things in real life, so I didn’t make as much progress as I would’ve liked. The next update will add two important scenes, and the start of the whole story, as chapter 1 is still what I would consider quite introductory :sweat_smile:

It depends on several stats and decisions; there are more dire vengeances than others, but who knows what might happen; these things tend to run out of control at some point.

Do some of the revenges involve fire hence the name.

The title is not 100% set, but it’s meant in a more metaphorical sense about revenge/bullying.

It’s about the player, who, although can be shaped by the player and their decisions, starts as someone who has suffered heavy harassment in their High School, to the point of dropping out in their sophomore year and wants revenge. If you’ve some experience with bullying, you’ll know that it takes a lot from someone: their happiness, their self-esteem, part of themselves and ultimately the will to keep going.

Now, we know that the path of vengeance isn’t good as in if you only care about revenge, sooner or latter you’ll lose yourself, but what happens when it’s someone who has lost so much that they don’t care? What could do someone who doesn’t have anything left?

Well for me as long as i get revenge everything else is secondary.

One note: The beginning of Chapter 1 described the news of Drew’s death as “terrific”. While this word does come from “terrible”, it’s often used as a positive- i.e. “Mom, I got an A+!” “Oh sweetie, that’s terrific!” Not how you’d usually describe a death- you might want to use “horrific” or “terrible” instead.

Thanks! My, what a blunder :sweat_smile: English isn’t my first language, which can lead to mishappens such as this one. How embarrassing… I’ll correct it in the next big update, along with the rest of chapter one and part of chapter 2!

No big deal! That one throws Anglophones sometimes.

The thing is - and I love languages because of these things - originally terrific meant ‘causing extreme terror’ but you all no doubt know how words change meaning with time. :grin:

From Latin terrificus (causing terror) and so forth. :relaxed:
