Awesome, i want to hear what sort of deal Lucifer can offer … no harm chatting with the prince of darkness
@No_This_Is_Patrick in dungeons and dragons there is a spell call Regeneration , which i supposed we could cast it to regenerate our own cells, although elsewhere there is also a spell call rejuvenation … but i think regenerate already cover rejuvenate??
The deal with Lucifer wouldn’t be bad at all! He may be a demon, but he’s a romantic! He’d make it so the MC and Eva live as long as the other does.
That’s one of my worries, too, and I’m glad you pointed it out. It’s just that the story spans a year…
Does Grey come off as aloof to Meg and Dom? That wasn’t my intent! Meg and Dom are the people he is supposed to be most close to.
I did a lot of telling rather than showing when I started the game, but I think I have learnt and I’m still learning about writing, so that’s why I’m revamping the game! Feedback really helped me see what I can improve. So whenever you feel something doesn’t work, please let me know.
That’s actually something I may change. The idea was that no matter your current relationship with Lenny, you two used to be best friends in high school and stayed close or grew apart. Would it make sense to keep the hostile option as a, we were best friends, now not so much, but we live together because the rent is good and we can afford it by splitting it?
@VioletHikari I think I understand what you’re getting at. But maybe we’re not thinking the same thing, so would you mind elaborating when you can? Would these choices be before the conversations or would the MC drink between conversations?
Thank you so much!
I know what it’s like being shy, and I’m glad you managed to step out of your comfort zone to offer feedback and support!
Don’t be sorry, I always want to know what the players think!
I really enjoyed reading your character’s backstory. I will use some elements of it as choices in the game!
@Eric_knight Regeneration sounds interesting for the magic choice
Maybe make it so that Eva turns into a human with a regular lifespan? After all, the prospect of watching your friends in the investigating agency die off before you do is not an appealing prospect for everyone wanting a longer, if not immortal, lifespan.
Heck, you could even make it so that you could do it with your own character’s magic, if you so wanted. There doesn’t seem to be any function to that option in game as it stands, anyway.
Would that also apply to anyone that romances Evelyn as well? since, you know, elven lifespans and all that.
Well, relatively speaking, yeah.
It would probably help smooth out that perception if we get a scene where we can eavesdrop on Grey being a big softie to Dom or Meg when he thinks he’s having private time. The dude’s gotta keep up appearances out in public, savvy?
If you might change it, then I don’t really see a reason for the MC to be hostile towards Lenny at all. It doesn’t really make much sense for us to have a sudden 180 in our high school relationship with Lenny in the span of a couple years. I know that people can and do drift apart over time, but for that to happen in the span of a couple of years where we can still be in contact with each other is pretty extreme, especially in this day and age.
And besides, he hasn’t really done anything to warrant any sort of hostility anyway. The only way for his relation with us to tank has to be from our end, either A) we let our prejudices, if any, get the better of us, and Lenny’s no different; or B) we have feelings for Lenny that we don’t know are actually feelings, and we deny them in a pretty poor fashion. Neither is an appealing prospect for me, since I’m the sort of player who likes to make friends with everyone possible, but if we’re deciding to keep a “hostile” option (more passive-aggressive it looks like?) then I’d go with A since you already have that coded into the game.
@No_This_Is_Patrick Eva would be willing to become human if that’s what the MC wanted. Maybe not at first, and she’d be reluctant about it, not knowing what it would entail for her, but she’d accept.
I’m glad you like it! I don’t want the player to feel as if choosing to make a deal with Lucifer is a bad choice.
A really fun story in one of my favourite genres, waiting eagerly for more \o/
Also, my 2c on the whole romance with supernaturals thing: Maybe it’s the transhumanist in me, but making or asking anyone to significantly reduce their lifespan for you seems more like a horrible curse you do to your worst enemy rather than your romantic partner…
“You know how I got this terminal disease and will grow frail and die in a few years, right? So I know you’re perfectly healthy and can go on for decades more, but I was thinking that you should get it too.” Sounds like a really hard sell, tbh ;>
I think I know what glitch @Exeldgamer is talking about, during the party if you flirt with Cameron and her alone that’s when you get the glitch also if you don’t flirt with anyone, cause the same thing happens to me.
Hey … i just ran into something that might interest you , how about an Antagonist that can “kill” Lucifer ?
In this case, it would seems fun for Lucifer to hire us to track down this Assassin before he gun him down , and increase our relationship with him… Lol
I am thinking of the “Saint of Killers” with his colt revolver that can kill anyone from Angels to Demons , perhaps there is going to be a copyright with that character ? so, maybe change it to “a nameless gunslinger” with a “God killer” revolver ?
Just a thought since i ran into the Saint of Killers story :-)
