Let me just say that I adore this, and I’m not even an Indiana Jones fan. You just seem to have a natural understanding of what makes a good choicescript game, IMO it’s very rare to find a WIP that’s so polished and professional.
Even the random button-mashing section felt fun , I stubbornly insisted on getting it done on my own (like, just hold your stinking horses, Sam, I’m on it!).
The second chapter was just as awesome, I mean, there was even extreme survival cannibalism. That’s delightfully horrifying.
Am I a monster for laughing at the “tastes like pork” line? (If it makes me anything less of a monster, I found that while looking through the code, because I just couldn’t choose to confront the poor kid about it).
By the way, my father says human flesh tastes like beef.
I feel the same way, let’s be old maids together.
(Also for a moment I thought Sam would be a RO, and I was like must… not… fraternise… with student… so… inappropriate… Don’t stand so close to me!).
What got me about Abdul and Esme though was that they seemingly would be just fine with having you be their pretty sex doll but they have no love to spare for your sake. That just seems so unfair on my tenderhearted Dr. Spillane.
I actually went through the code to see if there was some way for Zhu to survive since it seemed so strange to kill off a RO so soon. But no, Zhu’s dead, baby. I only wish he had a chopper.
Also, Zhu’s like, “noo, I can’t, I have to be faithful to the memory of [girl I never knew anything about because I didn’t ask him about his personal life, I suppose?]”. Funny how he only remembers that after slobbering all over your cleavage. (I assume that’s what he’s doing while he breaks down in a whiny “boo-hoo, I’m such a monster” mess).
