Hiiii ! I’ve been MIA for a few days because I went on a holiday and I couldn’t write a lot, nor get time to log on my social.
In return, I’m giving all of you a nice 22k update with some plot dev and RO dev ! (*wink wink)
IMPORTANT !! The previous saves won’t work because I had to add some stats and when I tried to load a previous game, it kinda crashed.
There are two manga/anime/webtoon easter eggs in the update, can you find them ? ;D
Now, into the thick of it !
After dying an unfair death from the hand of a demented coworker, you see yourself reincarnated in an alternate world where magic, and different races exist.
But careful, the path to your freedom is far from over,
for life is a right you fight for.
more down to earth summary of the game
You died, then got reincarnated into a world were magic makes might and right.
Fortunately, you’ve got a lot of magic.
Unfortunately, the world will stand on your path toward your goals.
Fight it, or die again.
The choice is yours.
In the current demo, you wont have any interaction with the RO, but there will be 7-8 RO, some of them will have their genders determined by your sexual orientation, others will be genderlocked
06/06 : you will interact with 1 to 3 RO depending of the sexual orientation you choose !
05/07 : after the poll result, God interaction will have some romantic undertones.
Trigger warning ?
I don’t think I’m that good at writing traumatizing scenes but you will come across :
-light non consensual advances (just one sentence which can be easily overlooked if you don’t look for it, and anyways it’s not in the demo I’m posting right now)
-some talks about torture
-as the title of the story says, you’ll live through war, so some description of violence
-disablement description and aftermath
In this demo you will

17/07 : following the poll’s results, you won’t go further in the storyline right now, but I did add a few new important paths :
-the last way to die ! I had three planned when I started this story, and I’m finally done, this one is a bit interesting because it dwells on the work life of your mc before dying.
-platonic Maria during the rest day
-Tisman/Timothy path in the rest day (there’s quite a lot of content in here)
total playable word count (I always exclude the code lines from this btw) : 134k
@Dhruv_Jyoti reminded me that I forgot to share where I found the inspiration for this story :
the big lines of the plot is based of my favorite anime, Youjo Senki/ Saga of Tanya the Evil, so if you want to check it out, it might help you see (really loosely) how the mc will evolve and the reason why my writing/narrating style will be a bit peculiar. Thank you !
@quartz thank you for pointing out awkwardness in the wording of some passages and giving me some ways to improve them !
As I said in the beginning, I’m not a native english speaker so whenever someone finds typos, syntaxic, lexical errors, if you can point them out to me (or even better, give me an example or rewording the sentence ) it would be super nice !
Scene you like the most so far ?
- Any of the three death paths
- Orphanage life + placement day
- War college graduation + party
- Relic + Second meeting with God
- Any of the rest day activities with either D, T, Maria or Adama (not yet up in the demo)
- Holiday trip + plot dev with the begining of the intrigue with Elysium islands
Character you like the most so far ?
- Your mentor, Adama
Once again, I’ll ask?
- More paths/choices in already written passages.
- Going on with the plot (with less choices and passages which might not match the previous choices you made because I haven’t written the relevant scenes yet).
