I enjoy programming, but I don't have an artistic bone in my body so this game is going to look a little "different" as I'll be using other skills I have in my palette (basic Photoshop skills haha) to complete it.
I hope to get this finished by the end of March, but I'm not going to go nuts if it doesn't happen.
12 Steps is a game about addiction and the struggles that take place in breaking free from it.
You play as Abby, a 28-year-old alcoholic taking the first step in battling her addiction. She has burned many bridges, but has the chance to start rebuilding them again.
Can she do it?
Does she even want to?
That’s up to you.
Multiple game endings
81 relationship outcome combinations (3^4) - This is not as complex as it sounds! I'll explain later

Video (March 9th)
Here's a quick video of what I've done so far
1. Game has been divided in 5-6 chapters. Chapter 1 is almost complete script-wise.
2. More voice actors have signed on to help with this game (yay!). Still looking for a few more (2 women, 1 male aged 60+).
3. Currently working on the interaction portion of the game. This is what gamers will be able to click on to choose which person they want to visit:
Feel free to give me feedback and ask questions. I'm a complete n00b though, so please do bear that in mind!
