Finally, you can always try to pursue the same NPC, fighting for his/her love. But in best case scenario we get enough funding to add more secret endings... and I'd love to add special secret endings when 2 players fighting for the love of a same NPC doesn't necessarily ends in one succeeding and the other failing, if you know what I mean
I have to say I'm a fan.
I'll keep an eye out for this. ^_^
Thanks a lot!
And yeah! Now we're going for the minimum viable product to assure completion. But we have some cool additions in the pipeline in case we got the time or the money. Now each Love interest has at least 2 secret endings. Most of secret endings are unlocked by activating specific events and getting the right outcome (each event has 2 options that might end in SUCCESS or FAILURE depending on your stats).
Some secret endings are unlocked by plotlines that are a bit different. For instance: there's Damien. Damien is a reckless demon full of anger. You can encounter him and do your best to romance him. Depending on a series of things (basically a mix of getting enough successes in your encounters -which will improve your relationship with him- and raising the right stats -which in Damien case would probably be BOLDNESS a lot and a bit of CHARM or CREATIVITY maybe) you will get a SUCCESS or a FAILURE ending.
But Damien has 2 secret endings too. And one of them is a bit tricky: there are 1 or more events where you can deliberately put him on his nerves (sorry if my English is not good, I'm from Spain... but worry no more! Our narrative designer is American!). On a couple of events you must get him as angry as possible, until he set a fight on prom night between him and you. Then you will encounter a special event where you have to convince one of two other classmates to give you some fight advice so you can stand a chance against Damien. If you do this correctly, you unlock this ending in where you attend to the fight and happen to be enough tough so you fight and fight to the point Damien realizes your toughness is actually sexy to him. I had in mind (SHAMELESS SPOILERS) Ian and Mickey's relationship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXr4M6OyK1c
(and for those ones that not condone violence, Damien's other secret ending is quite the opposite since you help him find the source of all his anger and try to turn it into something beautiful and not violent)
So... that's an example.
But truth is that I'd love to go even further and create very special secret endings that involve unusual conditions such as:
> 2 players must cooperate in each other's relationship so they can unlock a double secret ending for each other
> 2 players collide in their pursue of love and get a unique secret ending involving them 2 and 1 NPC
> 1 player can unlock a secret ending involving 2 or more NPCs
> Secret endings involving chars that are not one of the 6 LOVE INTERESTS (I have this super secret ending in mind where you romance... the shopkeeper!)
> imagination is the limit!
I hope you like the idea (:
