The Gilded Cage DEMO [Neo-noir, Cinematic, Adventure, Kinetic novel]

#1 Post by echanart03 »

Livvie, a Nightingale girl, longs for a life like her idol, the Phantom Diva. But reality is a gilded cage. After 100,000 marathon rereads, Livvie decides to take a page out of her favourite pulp fiction and heads "home". Except, things never go according to plots in the real world, do they?

  • Kinetic novel
  • 12k words, 1 hour gameplay (or 2 hours depending on how deep you go down the investigation rabbit hole)
  • Interactive characters (you can thrust your collar on their faces present items and characters)
  • Animated main menu, credits and visual effects
  • Animated sprites
  • Mutable bleeps (if you count that as a feature)
  • Point-and-click investigation (just click wherever you like on the background, no guarantee you could get anything, mind you!)
  • 26 CGs
  • Original soundtrack (if there is ever enough funds, that is)

Image
This game contains:
  • Themes of captivity and abuse
  • Emotional manipulation
  • Gun violence

Will there be a chapter 2? Of course! Y’all saw the big old fashioned “TBC” in the credits, no? Okay, I get it—nobody watches credit scrolls these days. I’d skip them too, haha.

Jokes aside, I will continue working on this project. But unfortunately chapter 2 will cost a dollar or two because… truth be told, game dev is hard, and doing everything on my own is like playing on hell mode. Even your average artist needs her own LB to drink…

If you enjoy the demo, please consider donating or becoming a patron. No pressure. Just do it if you feel like it.

Hiya, if you want, we could do an exchange, where I read your VN's introduction, which is arguably the most important part to a story, and you can test my mini-game for 2 or 3 round (will be a very quick experience), and then we can both give each other tips? How does that sound to you? :)

It seems pretty dead in this sub-forum, so I thought it'd be better if I was more 'active' in getting people to test my game.
