Just me and my nervous rambling

Soooo… err- hi.

I started working on a small demo and I swear- it started off as a small “test” to see how the entire script worked, just typing random thingies and creating uninteresting choices but- well, it actually transformed into a decent looking storyline by the end of the page. And before I know it, I had 10k words written down and a real storyline going on there. ALL of the first chapter is typed on my phone with a sketchy text editor app because I was on vacation and I didn’t have my laptop with me…

Sooooo… the story. Right. I was debating, an entire week long, if I should post the short, drafty demo of ch1 or not because the grammar is Shit and I’m far too insecure about those thingies but here I am. (In my defense, I am not a native English speaker, published a book in Dutch and autocorrection on android phones sucks.)

SOO… the story! Aaaalmost forgot about that… heh… sweats


Replica: between universes

A few years into the future, scientists were able to open a door into other parallel universe. This made destiny and faith nothing more than a simple, old story. People were able to visit various amounts of parallel universes where their loved ones were still alive, or universes where they managed to have a more successful life than in their home universe. This seemed to be one of the biggest discoveries ever at the moment.

But everything started to fall apart when the wall between each parallel universes became too thin, all the layers of parallel universe nearly becoming one single layer, which was resulting into allowing one particular error, or “virus” to enter our universe and create complete chaos. This “virus” was called the “Replica”, and the Replica must be found before it is too late.


So. That. Without spoiling much.

Aaaaaand… sweats there is… romaaaamce. Yay. Of course, you can decide to avoid them if you like to but I wouldn’t advise on that.
The story mainly focuses itself on the plot, story, characters and the main obstacles coming with it.

  • 4 romantic options and all of them are gender neutral, so you can play as bi, gay, straight and those characters genders are all determined by the MC’S preference.

  • You can play as male, female, nonbinary, gay, straight, bi and asexual.

  • The MC has a sister, Lily… and she will stay your sister.

  • the story currently has around 118k words (all branches) and around 44k words for one single run (excluding code)

for the next update, coming up soon!

You’ll finally get to meet your last RO when everything starts to fall apart- insanity starts to become a big deal in the story and secrets will be revealed.

Scientists.

Anyhow, looks interesting, haven’t played yet!


#3

@N1GHTMAR3
Oh look, misspelled words and bad grammar already (: I swear this topic will be filled with those if everyone decides to quote everything I wrote wrong. But thank you for pointing it out :smiley:


#4

This seems really interesting, good luck with it :smiley::+1:


#5

@Chopper thank you! You don’t wanna know how insecure I am about this story at this very moment, Heh.


#6

Gotta ask tho is the romance prominent cause it seems there will be romance?


#7

Finally, a game made for me!


#8

I’m planning on focusing more on character, plot and the obstacles that come with it and romance is more of a… side thingy. But it can become a big thing, too, I’m not completely sure about it just yet, to be honest.


#9

The summary definitely caught my attention. Good luck with this! :slightly_smiling_face:


#10

Really like it so far seems interesting!
But can I get an option to not believe them, maybe attack them some more for intruding in my house and tying up my sister?


#11

@No_This_Is_Patrick
Actually, I planned those options for the next chapter :smiley: Thank you so much for playing :smiley:


#12

:ok_hand::ok_hand::ok_hand: I love games that focus on plot but I would warn you that if you do romance have it at least mean something and not some random scene to appease people. I would have it plot incorporated to make it nice and real. Anyhoo I will be watching this thread. :face_with_monocle::grinning:


#13

Great! “I don’t believe you!” continues beating them with an alarm clock.

Also in the beginning it mentions Hazel reaching over us because of our short height. Could it be possible to not mention our height or let us choose it?


#14

@No_This_Is_Patrick Hehe :smiley: (I really love that alarm clock sequence there) though, using a chandelier would’ve been more effective.

I actually wanted to put an option for height there, but changed my mind last minute and apperantly forgot to remove that bit of text. You get the option to choose your own appearance and height in the next chapter :slight_smile:

@Chopper believe me, I have a couple of things in mind for romance :smiley: Thank you for the tip, though!

@caelestys thank you :smiley:


#15

Thats an interesting plot here :0. I admire any authors ability to actually just get things written. Writing, time management, and dedication for these projects are usually the hardest obstacles to overcome. Most get stuck in the fantasy of planning haha. So congratulations!

On to the wip, I’m sure your grammatical errors wont be too much of a problem.
For some reason Hazel comes off as unintentionally manipulative. Acting all puppy eyes,whining and guilting us into listening to her mumbo jumbo. Im all out of sympathy for her aha. Was that perhaps your intention?

Absolutely interested in where this will go though!


#16

@BoisterousBumblebee Hehe, thank you! I’m really awful at planning and time management, believe me. The main thing that gets me to write is dedication, truly!

Oh, they really left that impression on you? :‘D to be honest, I didn’t have a clear idea of their character when I started writing, but I already kinda planned out a small part of the story I want to give each character. So being overly puppy-eyed for Ha at the start is actually a plot- reason, but they are in general meant to be the mc’s hopeless little friend :’)


#17

read this was great good luck on this


#18

parallele universe…clones ? You know what that mean…Kill kill kill kill !

:grin:

Seriously though , like the story…even if I’m not big on the whole ‘paralléle stuff’ . cose my clone is probably better looking then meh and everything…

forgot! also love that banner…very chic!


#19

@E_RedMark Thank you!
I’m sorry, you won’t get to kill your clone from another universe :‘D (only if they are really really really evil and attractive) that would be a bit cliché :’)

@Takashi_Shin thank you!!


#20

It was a bummer to tell you the truth lol

Summary

Do I get to smash those idiots head though ? they tie down mah sister! Like seriously…drag them to mah basement and introduce them to ‘Dont mess with meh’
