Nurse "Can you hear me?"
"The noise -- a voice -- cuts through the stillness, sharp against your ears."
"Your ears, now."
Nurse "Open your eyes."
"You do, slowly, and immediately your senses are flooded with a harsh light."
Nurse "Subject 317. Can you hear me?"
"Your eyes slowly adjust, and you can make out a figure -- a human -- standing in front of you."
Axton "Yeah. We're... he's here."
"The sound comes from your mouth -- his mouth? -- and echos within your skull in a way that you find peculiar."
"You try to pull yourself out of the -- chair, was it? -- and almost immediately topple forward. Axton catches the two of you and helps you stand upright."
Xenopathy is a collaboration project made by PMscenarios, Bobconway and SoulsoftEA (and maybe a BG artist? We're still looking) for yaoijam this June/July.
In the future humanity has taken to the skies,and explored quite a bit of space. Xenopathy takes place in the Trappist-1 system, on Mining Base 913 - nicknamed "the Trap" by it's inhabitants, and follows a visiting alien on his vacation exploring the colony, and human senses.
The Ishin aliens have the ability to transfer their minds into willing hosts - sharing the space with the excising consciousness.
The first host is a shy, in-love bioengineer who hopes the alien can give him the confidence he needs to ask out the person of his dreams, but things don't go as planned, and when the alien returns to the mine base and the second host, it's for a much more urgent, and darker reason.
More character profiles coming
Inspired by sci-fi's like Total Recall, Westworld, Blade Runner & 2049, Star Trek Discovery, and many more, Xenopathy will hopefully include:
- Around 20k words?
- A murder mystery
- Different endings depending on how well you get along with your host
- And not to forget the alien - You
