So, I’m at an impasse. And I thought that maybe I should turn to the forum to help me out since it’s essentially why I posted here in the first place.
Spoilers to the demo so far.
I don’t think that, at this point, it is a big spoiler to say that both Alessa and Hadrian are possible romance options. I also want to make clear that they are both bisexual- and they’ve always been. Since the very first time I came up with the characters. However, I wanted their romance to differ depending on the MC’s gender.
In the demo, if the MC is female, Hadrian has a crush on her. If male, Alessa is the one who does. Right now, I was writing the scenes for a same-sex MC to express romantic interest in them - and also the unique scenes you get from doing so.
There will be more bisexual characters in the game (at least two more) which, apart from some flavor text, the romance plays out the same regardless of the MC gender. But for Alessa and Hadrian, I wanted it to start differently. They both have never been with someone of the same sex, so the MC would be the one to initiate it. Then, at a certain point, the romance would be the same as its straight counterpart.
But I’m wondering if this is the right way to do it. Maybe it’s unfair for players who want to romance Hadrian and Alessa with a same-sex MC the same way an opposite-sex MC would. So I pass the question onto you.
- Keep your original plan and write parallel romance scenes for Hadrian and Alessa.
- Make Alessa’s and Hadrian’s romance display the same way regardless of the MC gender.
- I want to see the unique flirting scenes added to the demo first before making the decision.
I can’t promise that what wins the poll will be what I’ll ultimately implement as I keep going back and forth with this issue, but your feedback would, of course, be an important factor to consider.
@Eric_knight I meant the youtube channel totally dedicated to the crusades. Very interesting stuff. I’ll try and watch the polish movie tomorrow - I don’t think I’ve ever seen a polish film so it should be fun!
The more I know of the Teutonic Order the more I like them. Apparently, they even formed a state of their own . These guys were big shots.
The Battle of Grunwald happened in the 1400s, right? That’s a little too advanced for the game’s timeline. So in the game, the order should be at its full might.
Yeah, you’re right. The Knights Templars’ headquarters were in the former kingdom of Jerusalem. I mixed them up.
