(This is an early WIP as I'm trying to focus more on the writing and coding before doing final visuals. However, some of the assets are complete. I'll update here when I get things more polished up, and once I have a playable demo.)
"Amy is the nurse who has been caring for me for the past couple of weeks. She runs a small clinic all by herself."
"It must be hard work. But at the moment, I'm her only patient."
Hospitalized is a horror VN about a patient of a small, isolated clinic ran by a caring nurse named Amy. The patient enjoys her company but finds no matter how long they are there, they don't seem to be getting any better. Could it be that they are more sick than they thought, or is Amy not as committed to their recovery as she says she is?
This is my first full project which will be pay-what/if-you-want once complete, as well as my first work using Ren'Py. It originally started out as a TyranoBuilder project, but I realized that some of the parts I wanted to implement into the gameplay (An inventory and the ability to move between rooms) was actually more complicated to do with that software than with Ren'Py's coding.
There are currently two endings implemented, since as a horror game it will have several short bad ends and the good end will be the longest route, but I won't be posting any demos until I have all of the core features up and running within the game.
(Progress coming along on backgrounds!
My next step is to add the room navigation, which will require replacing some of the placeholder backgrounds with ones that accurately show where the clickable doors are. I hope to make quick progress so that I'll have something playable to share soon!
