Update: On the Hunt won at 170 votes, The Beast Within came in a close second at 168.
With that established I’ve decided to work on both games and release updates for them alternately, since they both had very dedicated voters and a lot of interested parties. I hope this decision keeps everyone happy.
Hello, everybody! I have a few WIP ideas, and I can’t seem to pick which one to focus on. So I’ll put the general ideas here and let the public decide which they would be most interested in. Some are more developed than others, as I’m sure you’ll be able to tell when reading the short summaries I prepared, but I like all of them equally.

Play one of four alien species and train to become a Chimera Hunter. You’ll join an Elite Task Force to hunt down and capture the Chimera, a genetically engineered monstrosity created by The Galactic Government. The Chimera were meant to serve as a living library of all the known living genetic material. They were driven insane by their own genes and eventually took over the human homeworld, earth.

Dark Comedy, inspired heavily by Deadpool from the comics. Action and romance elements.
I have a fifth idea, but the game itself would be extremely mature, and would belong on an adult interactive fiction forum. That being said, I’m still struggling with how the game deals with gender identity and such. To still be struggling with such an important part of the game I feel means it’s not ready to present to the public.
I’ve already started work on each one, but I’m not yet ready to present them to the public. Whichever gets the most votes by midnight April 3rd Central time will be the one I’ll focus on primarily.
Edit:// Ignore my vote, it was accidental.
