This is my first ever NaNoRenO! Excited to participate, but also nervous and slightly stressed since we left completing the story 'till pretty late. Ah well.
Posted this pretty late, and I don't have much to show for it in terms of images as of now. I'll update it as we go.
You play as a therapist in a walk-in therapy clinic who's also a psychology student and has been demoted to... the receptionist. One rather slow day, the doors open, and a motley group of people walk in. You quickly discover that most, if not all, of these people are considered to be part of the 'villain' group.
The nameable protagonist. You're a psychology student who works at this walk-in therapy clinic. Of course, being only a psychology student, you aren't usually asked to do sessions with people, so you're a little out of practice... well, that should still be fine, right?
Ah, Jesse. The hero of Minecraft: Story Mode, the leader of a city, and the most stressed-out cinnamon roll you'll probably ever meet. They've fought through a living storm that tried to eat the world, got kicked off of the world, solved a murder mystery, battled their mind-controlled friends, played in some 'Games' that involve lots of dying, got dumped in a prison buried at the bottom of the world, and fought a literal god. It's not like they are going to have any huge problems that therapy needs to address, right?
Everyone's favorite grouchy potionologist, alchemist, whatever you want to call him. He's been betrayed by his friends, and created the living storm that tried to eat the world in response. Logical response, right? He doesn't really think he needs therapy, but as Jesse says, there's a reason he's here with the villain group for therapy, and it's not the fact that he's a ninja.
This teenager has destroyed a world, tried to kill his ex-friend and the world's greatest hero, and practically lost his sanity while doing it. He's a lot calmer now, but I'm pretty sure you're gonna need therapy to fix a problem like THAT.
She's a murderer. She was desperate to get home, desperate to get out because she was trapped, and lashed out because she didn't know how else to react. If anyone deserves a prize for the most angst in this whole group, I'd present it to her almost instantly.
She's an inventor and brilliant with redstone, but she also accidentally created a mind-controlling robot that caused the apocalypse because she was a little TOO good at her job. She claims that she's only here for Jesse, Ivor, and the computer... but dammit, we're dragging her into this therapy session even if she doesn't think she needs it.
PAMA is a mind-controlling robot that basically caused the apocalypse in Harper's world. Sure, it might be a computer, but it's also an AI, and we're about to see an AI in the world's weirdest therapy session... even if it doesn't think it needs therapy.
The chief organizer of the Games who doesn't want to be here and is being a complete jerk about it. Nobody likes him anyway, though, so it's fine. Sure, he's a jerk, but saying he needs therapy MIGHT be pushing it a little... right?
Hadrian's friend who literally murdered Jesse at one point. She's not the NICEST person on the planet, but compared to Hadrian she's a total sweetheart. But she hasn't done too much (minus killing Jesse), so she doesn't seem like she needs therapy. But you know what? She's here. Might as well participate.
The leader of Champion City, she's mostly solved the whole 'rivalry' issue with Jesse. (Mostly.) But she's still a little full of herself, and can be a little... much to deal with at times. Though, going so far as to say she needs therapy might be pushing it a little...
The Warden of the Sunshine Institute, a prison literally buried at the bottom of the world. He doesn't seem to HATE his job... although, it may be a bit of a stretch to say that he enjoys it. But considering his surroundings, he seems... fairly normal.
A literal god-- or, well, ex-god with issues. Even HE admits he's got issues. And when a literal god with an ego bigger than the size of the colossal statue he once inhabited admits that, you KNOW he's got REALLY bad issues.
The story is rated 13+ because of sensitive topics within the game.
Keep in mind, the authors (me and Toni42) ARE NOT ACTUAL THERAPISTS. If any mental illnesses, disorders, etc. come up within the story, the symptoms are taken from websites and the 'solutions' are what would commonly be used to help cure it. WE DO NOT CLAIM TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PSYCHOLOGY.
We hope you enjoy the game!
