Naturally, I wanted to explore this deeper.
Idiot Wind is pretty much about one (or two) of those musicians, fictional of course, as the shitstorm is dying down. One's career is in shambles and the other's is prospering. You can form relationships with some of the various people in their lives:
Musician 1 - S
A rabid fan who is dedicated to your very being regardless of whether or not you are on the right or wrong side of history.
One of your oldest friends and collaborators, whom has distanced themselves from you in public, but visits and helps you cope discreetly.
A famous musician who can care less about your whole situation altogether and wants to work with you professionally but not take it further than that
Your manager who has stuck by side in a rather cold and much more cautious and impersonal way.
Your accuser who was your former bandmate and partner, now pursuing a successful career
How the dating sim would work is that you gain relationships points through your interactions with the person you want to pursue as per usual of dating sims. However due to whatever relationship you pursue, public opinion of you could shift and the people you choose could even put your mental state into the red, leading to drug abuse and other pending urges that could result in a very bad end. For you and your partner. Some routes, yes, even the mainline routes, can be more difficult depending on who you chose.
Depending how your reputation, mental health and relationship fares by the end result screen, you can get various endings. Knowing me, the best ends may be bittersweet or even unhealthy to a degree looking from the outside in and the bad ones might leads to overdoses, double suicides, etc.
