What is No Good Wife?Note wrote:This game has received a near-complete overhaul. This post now references the 2018 rewrite of the game. The legacy version of this post will be on page 3.
No Good Wife is a historical drama game set in 1946 and 1947 in Cambridge, England. You play a soon-to-be-married woman who has to keep a secret – her fiance is an illegal homosexual. She chooses to stay with him to try to dispel rumours. Will you help her make her new life work or will you push to make her life the life of a normal housewife?
Characters How much content will be in the game?
There will be 12 activities to do over the course of 17 in-game days. There will be at least four endings depending on player choices.
When is No Good Wife going to be released?
I am hoping to release it sometime in 2018. The exact date will be announced later.
Where will it be released?
I am hoping to release it on itch.io or Steam.
How much will it cost?
It will be free.
What is left to do?
The core of the game is built. Some of the art and writing is done, but more needs to be done.
Why is this here?
No Good Wife is far from an average game. The concepts and themes alone make it difficult to market. I know there is probably an audience for this game, but I am not sure how to reach it. I would like critique and comments to shape the game for a market.
