Of Plagues and Monsters (Very Early WIP)

Hello everyone! AverageJoe here, I’ve been a longtime lurker and fan of choice of games and I’ve finally decided to make my own WIP gulp. It’s an extremely short and rough demo at the moment but I plan on fleshing it out to a slightly less short and rough demo by the end of the week :slight_smile:

Warning: This WIP will involve several mature themes and is NOT for children. Depictions of violence and language throughout.

Anyway, here’s a (bad) summary of the game:

You play as a mercenary/monster hunter working in the service of a Baron in a fictional medieval country. People are being murdered in the streets in the dead of night and your company has been hired to solve (and kill) the problem. However, the monster knows you’re coming, and will be making preparations…

Meanwhile, a new illness is spreading throughout the city and killing dozens, making your job ever so more difficult.
I would say more but I’d like to keep some plot elements secret until they are revealed in-game :wink:

I’m not very good at summaries but the link to the (very short) demo is below, and I hope you enjoy!

Well, we're almost to Hawthorne Keep
Missing a word?
There is a lot of PLACEHOLDERS.
I like how you described the city.
It’s hard to say more, because the game is too short now. Good luck developing it!


I really like your writing style. It’s very descriptive but not too much and gives the atmosphere something darker which makes me want to know more abt the whole story! The begging sounds quite interesting too and I look forward to seeing more of it :slight_smile:


I think that the selected phrase - in the red box - can be combined/shortened into “to defend against the damp, spring chill”.


I like the setting of the story, and my curiosity had been peaked, but honestly the the demo is so short I can’t make much of it yet. Though I see lots of potential, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this, good work.


The demo is way too short yet you caught my curiosity. There’s a lot of “PLACEHOLDERS” and a letter B or C appears when you chose the second or third option when Milly ask “are you alright?”



Hope to read more of this it look like it going to be good read


Thank you, I fixed it for the next update. I tend to get a little too wordy sometimes when I write descriptions. :slight_smile:

I’m glad you all enjoyed what little I have to show at the moment, I’m currently working on removing most of the placeholders and adding some new content. Not sure when I’ll update, but hopefully soon. Cheers! :slight_smile:


Couldn’t help but be reminded of this by the intro: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Itz55DWnYUs


It’s a very interesting setting, I find myself rather curious about this interactive novel-game! I am really looking forward for seeing a bigger demo​:grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes::heart: I loved your work so far! Please keep writing!
