Here’s the first three chapters of my game, The Underground Society. It is based in a society where people with powers (called Gifted) are looked down upon to the point where parents will kick out children and it is impossible to get jobs/homes etc. The player can choose their gender and sexuality and will eventually be able to romance other characters (to be added later in the game).
The MC is rescued by a group of people who are social outcasts. From here, the player can decide to stay with the group or try to survive alone. Both paths lead to different ends and the player will have many chances to switch their path throughout the game. The people who rescue you will offer you help regardless of the path you choose.
I’ve tried to add some kind of representation to the game (e.g POC and stated some character’s sexualities) and would be grateful if people could tell me if i’ve done it right (e.g. not used out of date terms or made it sound unnatural).
I’d love any kind of feedback (even if it’s simply that you hate/love the game so far) and any ideas that anyone have I would love to hear. Please say if you run into any problems (with coding/spelling/grammar etc.) and i’ll get straight onto fixing it. Also, feel free to ask questions, I may not have explained things are clearly as I assumed I had so if anyone doesn’t understand anything, It would be really useful to know,
One more thing, I am English and may have used words/phrases that only exist here. If anyone comes across any, please say so I can edit it. I want the game to be as universal as possible.
Okay so in this update I have fixed typos and grammatical errors, edited the sexuality choices to add descriptions as well as the terms (feel free to correct me on any of the descriptions by the way), written about two lines of chapter 4, removed the default Power Set and allowed the player to choose their own, and maybe something else that I can’t remember (probably coding related). Have fun!
I have edited the gender options to not use such confusing language. They are not perfect at the moment so feel free to add suggestions. I have also changed some of the language so that the game doesn’t force you to feel like staying in the underground it the “right” option. Hopefully, the bug which changes the MC to be genderfluid regardless of previous choices has gone.
