What is No Good Wife?Warning wrote:This preview is all-ages. Please note that this game contains sexual content (but no sex scenes), some cursing, derogatory names, and some references to suicide.
No Good Wife is a historical drama game set in 1947 in Cambridge, England. You play a newly married wife who has to keep a secret – her husband is an illegal homosexual. She chose to stay with him to try to dispel rumors. Will you help her make her new life work or will you push to make her life the life of a normal housewife?
How much content will be in the game?
I think there will be about 2000 lines of text and three endings. It will span a time period of eleven months.
When is No Good Wife going to be released?
I am hoping to release it sometime in 2016. The exact date will be announced later.
Where will it be released?
I am hoping to release it on itch.io
How much will it cost?
It will be free.
What is left to do?
The art style is subject to change, as a new artist could better match the serious tone of the game and utilize period-accurate clothing. The interface needs to be redesigned. There will be more text to write and edit, and most of the marketing things still need 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.
Where can I find out more about No Good Wife?
