WIP: Averno

Hi, all. This is a little side project I’m working on. It’s another story loosely on based on Greek Mythology (namely the story of Orpheus and Eurydice and a few others, with a few liberties.) It’s entirely romance based this time, and is set completely in the Underworld. :slight_smile:

Here is the link to the game if you’re interested: https://dashingdon.com/go/6667

And here is the link to my blog for updates and other whatnots: http://calypsoan.tumblr.com/

Thank you all!

Summary:

You play as a lost soul wandering in the Underworld without memories of your past life. Your goal is to uncover your memories and remember who you are in your past life.

Features:
  • Work to get your previous memories back… or completely embrace your new life in the Underworld.
  • Romance a denizen of the Underworld!
Romance Options:

Hypnos: A resident of the Underworld. Is cheerful and has a great sense of humor. Gets a little too distracted and unfocused sometimes. They’re the twin sibling of Thanatos, though their differences in behavior makes it hard for them to get along with each other.
Thanatos: Also a resident of the Underworld. Is stoic and serious, and can be a little too distant. Responsible to a fault, and takes his duties very seriously. He’s the twin brother of Hypnos, though their differences in behavior makes it hard to get along with each other.
Eros: A visitor of the Underworld. He’s mysterious and lonesome, preferring to keep to himself. Still, seems achingly familiar for some reason, and the constant melancholy that surrounds him draws you in like a moth to a flame. Who is he? And what are the secrets he’s hiding?
One (1) Secret RO

As with my other WIP, I’m still very new to trying my hand at Choicescript, so I’d appreciate any advice or tips. Thank you for reading!

You’re off to a great start! Your writing style in the prologue really drew me in, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the MC/shaping the MC with more choices later on.

One thing I noticed is that you have two “End Prologue” page breaks.

Love it! You capture the confusion of the MC waking up really well. Can’t wait for more :smile:

this is good! it really got me hooked.

Is the secret RO is the young man at the start :thinking:

I’m really intrigued by this!

all the romance are male? and if you play as male, you get called ‘Wife’ ? :thinking:

sorry! that’s a pronoun error on my part. thanks for pointing it out! i’ll look into it as soon as i get the chance. as for the romance options, there are 1 non-binary, and two male options + 1 secret ro!

I assumed the secret RO might be Hades??? and that that the RO at the start is Eros, our husband unbeknownst to our MC. :pleading_face:

I also think Eros is mc’s husband, since they called mc’s husband son of Aphrodite… Then again, Aphrodite has many children (cmiiw) so it might be possibility that mc’s husband is someone else

Just like the other comments above, I think Eros is the MC’s husband. Well, he did seem very familiar to MC…

Summary is very short but you got me hooked! You’re doing great!
