I’ve been doing hard work on my game Time of Genius. Here’s a good synopsis of the setup for the story:
You’re the child of a well-respected scientist. In the months before her death, your scientist mother began confiding that all through her life she has heard something she cryptically calls “The Song” - a kind of harbinger to danger, death, and destruction - and it’s only gotten louder and stronger through the years. It’s hereditary and has been in the family line for decades, “and one day,” she says, “you will hear it too.”
After your mother’s death, you’re taken in by your Aunt Marie; “The Song” makes its presence known to you. It guides your life, taking you from home to home, until it brings you to your mother’s alma mater, MCMI. It doesn’t take long for you to learn that “The Song” doesn’t always take you away from danger, but it always takes you to who you need to see, and where you need to be.
There are four romanceable characters, including a spunky engineer, a snarky professor, a billionaire ex-scientist, and a seductress historian. You can play as either male or female (trans inclusive, of course), and can pursue both men and women regardless of your gender.
I’ve currently mostly finished three chapters. There may be some programming issues. I will update as much as I can.
If you want to play the demo and give me some feedback, it’s here https://dashingdon.com/play/truedevilsadvocate/time-of-genius/mygame/
Character creation and first three chapters are up for demo on Dashingdon, now with a save system in place.
