(WIP) Drink Your Villain Juice! (Superpowers, Horror | 112k): 8th Feb 2024

There will be stuff for the previous friends, though what exactly that’ll be, you’ll have to wait and see.

Thank you for the comment/critique, I appreciate it. My casts do run large, something I need to work on. I’m aware the tone can slide around; to an extent that’s intentional, albeit I understand that it might not do it for some readers.

Thanks! And I appreciate the continued bug reports. Next small update should hopefully fix those (I put the @ in the wrong place, oops!). I do wonder if that’s the mystery of the massive multireplace solved!

Look Catalyst is just stressing out at work, it’s nothing personal.

(it’s absolutely personal)

Correct! Thanks! idk how I let that one slip through, considering the 1234 of those guys is ingrained in my skull by now.

Ooooh, great update! The story is coming along nicely. Can’t wait for my poor, fragile little bean to finally snap and take out Catalyst though.

I always get this error in grant’s scene.

Nvm, it’s okay already

Can someone help me imagine our character? Like any recommendation of who we may look like?

I like to imagine we look like a more humanoid version of Nyarlathotep

I guess just like Itona from assassinations classroom

When I playtest using the mutation build, that typically how I imagine my character to be!

Nice work, good improvement on that one scene.

Still waiting to see what happened to beginning RO. As a demi, i cant flirt with the others still. Glad to see the choices do involve my first option. Nice work.

So, here’s another poll! I am very curious about a certain something in chapter 4…

Which of the choices could you select in response to Catalyst?

  • “I endure the blows, and mask the hatred from my face”
  • “I flinch from the beating, cowering in surrender.”
  • “I lower my head in deference. He’ll stop soon.”
  • Endure/Flinch
  • Endure/Deference
  • Flinch/Deference
  • I am a mathmagician (all three)

I think that Catalyst is…

  • A pretty okay guy.
  • Kind of mean.

Which character(s) are you looking forward to seeing more of?

  • Architect
  • Wyrd
  • Wil
  • Kay
  • Teddie
  • Alistair
  • CG
  • Glory Hounds (Surpass, Arcade, etc.)
  • Coven (Hypothesis, Catalyst, etc.)
  • Flashback Four (Beth, Grant, Shauna, Prii)

Also if you genuinely could select all three options RE: Catalyst I want to know what sorcery you pulled because that should be almost impossible. :open_mouth:

Bug report:
When selecting the option on what to label Will’s contact no. the choice “when Wilma dad come home from the milk store :-(” is missing.

With all the nonverbal options to respond to others, I was wondering if it would be possible to roleplay a mute, or even funnier, someone who doesn’t speak enough that others assume they are mute, only for them to say something at the last minute to general confusement. There are some parts where you’re forced to speak, like when wyrd forces their friendship upon ye, but beyond that silent and broody is complelt possible

Just finished the demo. Loved it.

pfff hahaha.

It’s fun to have a no-speaking route, and I’ve tried to provide options to play it taciturn in general. Unfortauntely I also think you kind of have to design things with no talking in mind for no speech at all to work, and the nature of the story would make it extremely difficult for me to wrangle. There are already a few times where MC speaks/answers questions without a direct choice, and it’s essentially a case of… how could the likes of Architect and Wyrd possibly agree to team up with somebody who refuses to talk to them?

Hope that makes sense!

ahhh i love your wip, so much angst potential :relieved:
also, i hope we’ll be able to lean even more into body horror during future fights—i like the idea of MC turning into the stuff of nightmares and going absolutely feral
