A Beauty and the Beast retelling.
Paupered by your father's poor luck and decisions, you eke out a living in the shadow of a Sorcerer's castle. Strange things begin to happen-- there are sightings of a beast in the forest, and one of your father's ships returns after being lost for two years. One dark night your father takes shelter in the Sorcerer's garden and plucks a single rose.
You know the rest. Don't you?
This game features a genderlocked protag with an extremely malleable personality-- after all, any tale will change depending on who tells it. Explore a mysterious castle, discover long last magic, find a future for yourself, fall in love, and find out who's really the beast in the castle.
Current demo is just the prologue. I'll need a lot of your input if I want to do this game right. I want the MC's personality to change how the story is told, so if you guys gave me summaries of how your characters feel about things, or give suggestions for different types of personalities, that would be a great help.
I want to put a big thank you to Fawkes here, because this was basically her idea (lol) and without her this wouldn't exist. Also she's just wonderful so there!
