Features:

  • A detective story with choice and consequence, set in a modern day urban fantasy world.
  • 6 female characters to romance, all unique in some way, ranging from a sexy vampire to a cute elf!
  • Build romantic or platonic relationships with the ladies in a variety of ways: dialogue options, sidequests, and even take them out on dates.
  • Choose to specialise in athletics, charisma, erudition, or mix and match those abilities to open up new ways of tackling the missions.
  • Your stance with each lady could affect the flow of events, their interactions with you and each other, as well as their final fate.


Synopsis:

You are detective Hank Anderson, and you’ve just been transferred to another city to help solve a series of unusual crimes. Upon arrival, you are greeted with a gory scene and a revelation of several instances of a deadly disease that turns people into savage zombie-like husks. Upon closer inspection, it appears there’s more to all this, and peculiar events do not stop. It is up to you now to solve this mystery and find out who or what has caused this.

During your investigation, you will have to make choices, find allies, and improve your abilities, for all this will affect how the story shapes up. You will meet fascinating female characters throughout. What kind of relationship you forge with each one of them is up to you, but be aware that your relationships with the ladies will impact the investigation one way or another.

@Niten Ichi Ryu: Thank you for the kind words, man.
Yeah, I sure hope I'll get to put those to use sometime soon (you mean the Medieval packs that were made for MV format, right?). I used some character pieces from those already in Mercury game that I finished not long ago. :)

Already was trying to put that point in Erudition. BTW nice cars and nice graphics (don't let my animator QC eye bully you in chat! :3 ).

Thanks guys. There are quite a few artists I've got to thank for the different graphics in this game.

The character busts are by Adyrn. She's got a shop thread btw. You might also remember her work from my older games (Front cover character drawings of Atonement 1 and Incitement 2/3 were by her).
The tiles and cars are by Celianna (tilesets are from Modern Buildings and Ancient Dungeon packs, cars are from the old Futuristic Tiles pack which I am still using to this day, lol)
The character sprites were edited heavily from the originals I bought on Game Dev Market by artist Woody.
Plus there are a few minor bits and bobs by other artists and a few things from MV RTP but edited.

Seems that I started you on the credits after all! :D Sorry @Matseb2611 I really am eager to see what you'll pull out with that game. That seems to be kinda a twist on your usual stories and a reverse of the medal too. :)

Yeah, I find it's nice to try out something a little different from time to time. Keeps the creativity fresh that way.
And no worries. I don't have that many people in the credits at the moment, but there could be more being added during development, so I just find it easier to make the whole list at the end. :)

I completely forgot to mention, but I created a ******* page a couple of weeks back, where I'll be posting a lot of the updates, including (for higher reward tiers) some of the sneak peak information about this game and my future projects.

*cybermental hugs* I do hope it helps, rewards or not!

(I wouldn't be good at that; I wanna keep my personal infos secret and I would end up spending all my times doing the rewards instead of the principal job. XD Do not overwork yourself. ^^ )

Thanks @Marquise* . That's true and it's one of the important things about ******* or Kickstarter or any other form of donations with rewards. You kind of have to promise the kind of rewards you know you can fulfil in a timely manner without distracting you too much from the main premise of what you're doing. :)

If I was rich, I would like to steal look over your shoulder all of your earlier paper/how-to market-tings concepts! XD

@IAmJakeSauvage : They were made by @Adyrn . She's got a shop thread with examples of similar art in other games. :)

PS: She also did character artwork of some of my previous games. Maybe you've seen it already.
Oh wow, I didn't even realize this was your project! This is a step away from what you usually do. I'm excited to see how the systems all play together!

@IAmJakeSauvage : Thanks and no worries. Trying some new things is always fun and helps us evolve as developers. :)

@Marquise* : That is all right. :p The tall purple alien dude is Darmek. He was quite a tank and liked blowing stuff up.

@Matseb2611 I hate aging, my memory is all blowing random info up! *cybermental hugs* Yeah! Darmek. I remember I also a bit forgot where he was in the end of third story once. ^_^;

Thank you very much, Alastor01. I am so glad my games inspire others. That's what creative works are meant to do. :D

Whilst I'm here, thought I'd upload a couple of more screenshots from the parts of the game I worked on recently.

Hmm.... So I can use my quick ports of QPlugins, but QMovement breaks MZ's save system. Or I can use the Luna port of the QPlugins whose QMap breaks MZ's save system. I can't decide I want to fix one of those, or just make a new save system. The new one would look so much better.. I'm kind of tempted. :LZSexcite:
I'm very happy and I want everyone to be happy too, so I decided to share this song about the end of the world! :biggrin:
