It could be your wealth.
As long as you consider that something to be the most important in your life, that is enough to be the price you must pay. For a second chance at life.
Sometimes, people feel their death is unfair, that it isn’t their time to die. That there's something they still want to do in life.
Those people are the ones who are noticed by beings called Fate Changers who watch over the world, beings who will give them a second chance.
But it will cost them. They can choose to take that chance and continue living their life as if their death never happened. Or...they can attempt to get back the price they paid to manipulate fate: by becoming a Defier and playing a game called Sortition.
This isn’t a grand tale about people trying to save the world. Nor is it about a great villain who will destroy it.
This is a story about one girl. A young lady named Alexandria Garnett who became a Defier and decided to participate in Sortition. Her most important person has forgotten her. She lives in a world where they will never be together. For this reason, she decides to fight to take back what she has lost.
- In Game Phone System with the following apps: Contacts, Message, Notebuddy and Sortition
- Map exploration
- RPG-inspired elements such as an inventory system and ability to accept/complete tasks
- 4 Routes planned with multiple endings for each
These are the main characters that will be introduced in the upcoming demo.
Alexandria Garnett (Lexi)
Description: A young lady who’s still a bit naive about the world. She lived her whole life going along with the flow and not really thinking of what she truly wanted. After college, she spent her days working odd jobs ranging from museum guard, dog walker and waitress.
She might not have a lot of money but she still tries her best to save enough every month to pay her rent on time.
Perhaps things were starting to look better for Lexi when a young man who’s the son of the CEO for a big company fell in love with her. She found herself in an entirely different world and didn’t have to worry about money.
They went on dates to extremely fancy places, she had many experiences that she never would’ve had with her current income.
However, perhaps fate was cruel, on the way from one of those fancy dates she finds herself a bit too close to death’s door. She makes a deal to come back to life in exchange for something important...
Lexi's description: Who is this guy?? I met him as I was dying and he was somehow able to bring me back to life. He said he's not human and calls himself a Fate Changer. Even though he definitely sketchy, he doesn't seem like a bad person.
Alexander (Alex) Lloyd
Lexi's description: Talk about bad first impressions! Was he intentionally trying to get on my bad side? I feel like he was! I hope not all players in this game are like him. I'm trying to convince myself maybe he just had a bad day.
Lexi's description: A mysterious man who wants to be allies with me. What is he planning? I can't help but feel suspicious of him. It must be the gas mask.
Zachary (Zach) Vincere
Lexi's description: He's some kid that Kieran has told me to take care of. I'm not sure how I feel being the 'illegal' guardian to someone I barely know. The money was too enticing and I don't think Kieran would've taken no for an answer...
Jackson (Jack) Sinclair
Lexi's description: I would call guys like him a womanizer or player. He's the type of person who would hit on every female in a club then take them home or...worst, to some love hotel!
Hey all, Dragonaqua here. \o/ This is a visual novel I've been working on with a friend of mine. And finally decided it was time to get something out there to the public. My friend AZhang did the majority of the GUI designs/menu and phone screens that are in the screenshots. (Currently she doesn't have much of a social media presence so will update once she gives me something). I'm the writer, programmer, artist, etc, etc. I've been playing around with these characters since 2016 but finally got around to actually doing something with them. This will be a pretty straightforward visual novel with some stat raising/text messaging/phone features/exploration type of gameplay.
Some other details below on the game:
Price: Completely Free!
Most of the resources and assets I'll be using are non-commercial anyways.
Code: Select all
Statistics: The game contains 1,772 dialogue blocks, containing 26,523 words and 140,859 characters, for an average of 15.0 words and 79 characters per block. The game contains 8 menus, 288 images, and 41 screens.
Characters: Mainly done in MMD (because I don't trust my drawing skills but I trust my 3d models T-T )
Backgrounds, Music, Sound Effects will be free resources with some backgrounds from MMD as well
On that note, I am looking for proofreaders and some initial feedback on the preliminary demo before I release it to the public. If you're interested, feel free to send me a message here or my discord at MistySnow#7449 (I am around the Renpy discord if you're looking for a way to PM me).
I currently don't have any big questions to ask yet but would love to hear some feedback, comments or your questions .
Thanks for reading!
