Hi everybody, my name is Lorraine and I’ve been a COG addict for about eight months now. Let me start by saying that I am hot-headed and stubborn, but I try my best to be patient and understanding. So please, if you feel that my comments are rude, take no offense and understand that I am only human.
Not enough for you? Enjoy these other WIP projects (rough draft) demos I have available!
A Certain Kind of Magic
Both are working titles, like this one.
SHORT SYNOPSIS (most likely title will be Fatal Limerence)
The reader plays as a twenty-three year old college student just trying to get an education and make ends meet. However, unbeknownst to them a dark figure looms over them - watching their every move. Through a series of fortunate and unfortunate events, the player will discover the truth about their mysterious benefactor as well as their own personal, tragic past.
They will need to choose wisely on how to proceed because otherwise they will prove to be the death of everyone they love.
GENRE & THEMES
This story will absolutely contain adult themes and themes that some people may be triggered by; therefore, I offer a simple trigger warning. There are dark themes and ones of violence, sexual activity, and criminal activity. Obviously I will not be glorifying any sexually criminal acts or any criminal acts of any kind, but know that they play a key role in telling this story. As for overall themes; romance, mystery, thriller, horror, drama, low fantasy, I can’t think of any others…
Obviously, constructive criticism is appreciated. Know that I won’t always be inclined to change something, but I look forward to hearing your opinions and ideas on how I could improve the story.
HOW LIFE WORKS
Just like in real life, the actions you take in this game will influence the world and people around you. The same for the opposite, your actions will (obviously) be influenced by what happens.
You may play as male or female, transgender, or non-binary. You can flirt with anyone, no matter your gender, but obviously a lesbian will not appreciate it if you’re male. If you’re generally a POS, people also will not respond to flirtation. No one likes an asshole.
A TOTAL OF TWELVE ROMANCE OPTIONS (2 PAN, 4 HOMO, 1 BI, 3 HETERO, 1 ASEXUAL)
Most of these characters have locked genders, only two have genders that are dependent on the player’s preferences. There is one transgender character.
YOU CAN’T DIE!
I hate games where you can die and have to start over, especially interactive novels because very rarely is there an actual safe function. So when you lose in this game, it’s not necessarily the end. The stats also reflect on how the world sees you and how you influence others, you don’t have to worry about having high enough “Strength” to survive.
Updates should occur as I write. I really have no schedule since my hours are entirely dependent on what my boss needs. I can work a four hour shift or an eleven hour shift. From ten in the morning to one in the morning. So my writing varies. However, I will always be writing whatever chance I get and once I decide a chapter is good enough for criticism I will publish it here.
Updates are in month/day format.
