You’re living a dual life.
On the one hand, after years of struggling, you finally get to attend a widely-known university.
On the other, you’re not a stranger to oddness, bearing a mysterious mark as you are. Spreading insomnia and unexplainable weather changes plague the city, and now…
You’ve been cursed.
Short premise: university life gone wrong
Actual premise: join forces with an ancient spirit and try to stop an assimilation plot while struggling to survive your curse
Hello and welcome!
This little game here is something I started working on for fun, because the other story I was writing was very editing-heavy. I wanted something relatively fun and easy to work with, and so picked one of the more represented genres/premises. It’s meant to be a character-focused urban fantasy story, with light horror elements.
Chapter 1-2.5 are currently coded and available here: https://dashingdon.com/play/lliiraanna/project-ascension/mygame/
14/10, 2/3 of ch3
Things to note:
- English is not my first language, and so there are going to be mistakes… on top of typos probably.
- I don’t think anything needs a trigger warning so far, but this will probably change as the story progresses. (Upd.: Ch2 contains mentions of blood. Upd. 2: mild violence, refences to bullying/abuse.)
- Play as m, f, or nb, romance one of at least 6 characters of various degrees of wackiness, team up a spirit, etc.
A little on the setting
The setting is modern, but with some Ancient Rome and a lot of Ancient Egypt influences. The reason for this is that I like ancient history, and for me, writing doubles as an excuse to research stuff.
Magic system is based on the concept of divine words, which itself is based off heka, which, amongs other things, posits that words (spoken or written) and certain ritual actions can affect reality. Ex.: want to muck up someone’s life? Write their name on a plate and then break it.
I’m accepting any kind of feedback, really. Don’t like something? Want something added? Hit me up.
Thanks for your attention, and hope you enjoy~
