Off to a bit of a late start, but we're starting nonetheless! My name is Sam - I like to write stories about and for fellow queer folks, and my talented girlfriend Dresden is an artist, so we're joining creative forces to attempt our very first game! I anticipate that we'll only be able to make a prototype/demo of the game in these next couple weeks, but that's just fine with us! I'm not sure how much information is too much, so I'll keep this short and sweet:
THE HAUNTING OF FRACTURED PEAK is going to be a visual novel about three queer best friends and their dog the summer before they become high school seniors. You play as IRIS SHARPE, on a last minute vacation up to a certain mountain lodge with her dog GHOST and her best pals JULES and MOOSE. The lodge has been a favorite destination of theirs for years, but upon arrival, they find that the owner, COYOTE JOE, isn't doing so well - a new rival lodge has stolen all of his customers, and at night he is haunted by eerie wailing and strange figures at night. This is a mystery solving visual novel, where you have to discover clues, interrogate strangers, and put it all together to figure out just what is going down.
As I write this, Dresden is working on sprites, and I'm about to get back to polishing the plot. I'm using Ren'Py for the first time, and attempting to compose music through Bosca Ceoil, so we'll see if this goes as planned - wish us luck!
EDIT: here's a peek at a wip of Jules, Moose, Iris and Ghost!
