"Pestilences extinguished, the world becomes smaller,
for a long time the lands will be inhabited peacefully.
People will travel safely through the sky (over) land and seas:
then wars will start up again."
Sixth Sense will be a six-character POV survival horror game/story set in a third-person narrative, coded in ChoiceScript and played like a typical COG. Chapters will be character locked, with the exception of the prologue, with your choices impacting later chapters/characters as time goes on. Characters will also have their own personal stats and relationships, which will shape and impact how you will, or won’t, play when as them, and can change, or improve, as the story progresses. You will also have the ability to hinder or create romances—or totally break them apart—among the six characters, though with a few limits.
Every choice you make will have a lasting impact. From scenes to character relationships. From who will live and who will die. The lives of six strangers depend solely on how you choose to play the game.
Six characters. Six lives. Six deaths. Your actions will help guide them to safety or doom them. Be the unseen force behind their choices, the voice whispering in their ears, their sixth sense. How will you play the game, when anyone can die thanks to your choices? Will you choose to kill all or none? One or two? What will you do when someone stops following your directions, instead choosing to ignore you, and take their own life into their hands?
Will you break the typical horror archetype and have the Blonde Air-Head be the only one to survive? While the supposed Final Girl dies a gruesome death in the first act? Your choices will impact everything, and shape the world around you.
(Author’s Note: The “Blonde Air-Head” is just a reference on how they make out one of the characters to be less smart and, or, likeable than the supposed leading actor/actress.)

(Author’s Note: These are just the typical ones. Some characters personalities can overlap, but this is just a barebone roadmap. Not everyone will see the characters in the same light.)
All of this is still a WIP, and I have no plans of having anything playable up anytime soon. I just love Horror Movies so much, along with survival horror games, where your choices really do matter. If Sixth Sense ends up getting enough interest in it, I may take some time off my other project, Beyond: Rebirth, and dedicate time to this potential project, as things have been very slow going for B:R, due to work, classes and family matters.
If you have questions, comments, or anything you want to say, I’d love to hear it!
Until Dawn. The Letter. Hidden Agenda. The Cabin in the Woods. Pretty much every Horror Movie ever made.
