Vice & Virtue (WIP @ 39612 Words! (Excl Code))


Forge the Blood Pact.

Vice & Virtue is an upcoming interactive mafia-era narrative RPG currently in development.

Set in the modern era, become a made man as you join the Yakuza, an Italian Mafia, or the Bratva, each with their take on your story.

Develop your home base, romance others, level, commit crimes, gamble, and steal. You’ll endure a life of crime, based on the hardship of a past once lived.

The question is…

Where are you when the chips fall?

There is a 404 error that breaks the game after your father knocks you out.

I am working on trying to resolve the errors which appear to be due to Moody. I’m reuploading to Dashingdon right now!


Ok thank you for letting me know

The link on the thread is now to Dashingdon which should fix this issue, let me know, thanks!

The game is a good start and seems interesting but there were a few issues; After investing takashi it loops infinitely and won’t let you report back until the next day but when you show up it starts the mission over again. The cellphone place and the strip club can’t be accessed to day 2 and the game just ended after I went to one.


Thanks for reporting those, I’ll get to work on them ASAP so those are rectified.

Thank you so much, this is my first project so I appreciate any and all feedback.

I do have a full tattoo system - I should be able to turn it back on now. You make a good point and those would be pretty easy to implement. Thank you so much for your reply!

Dear Author, I love what you have so far. I have but one request,… can there be an irish mob at some point? If not, all is as it should be. Keep it up! Imma buy this when it pops :+1: :ok_hand:

This truly has the potential to be better than most crime WIP’s. This is something to keep an eye on at all times lol. Already love the different avenues you can go down!

Thank you!

good start! I would maybe add that you can choose your gender. I assumed this would be gender-locked but was pleasantly surprised when it wasn’t.

edit: actually I see it already says that, I think I’m just dumb


A combination of Life of a Mobster, BREACH Series, and GTA V. I am looking forward to the game

I’m so sorry I just saw this! - I considered doing an irish mob but two italian worked better with the story. I doubt it would be possible to add to this game, unfortunately.

I knew it would be a long-shot ask. It’s all good, Dear Author :ok_hand: apology is not needed. I understand the pressures of a full life :ok_hand:

If you take John (the baker) to his house and pick the choice that says you’ll help his daughter, it switches to the version where you beat him up and then back again in an infinite loop.
It’s really fun though.
