Who Knows (Where They're Going)
Who Knows (Where They’re Going) follows two waitresses on their first date, and their anxieties about the future, and themselves.
It will be a twine game made in 1.4.2 with Sugarcube 2. There will be choices, but they don’t change the outcome of the date. Instead, they allow you to explore different topics of conversation. While both of the main characters generally struggle with their future prospects, Vera’s storyline also partially deals with fatphobia, while Rel’s storyline includes her struggle with her ace identity.
The protagonist is Vera (Right in the image), a dorky and resolute young woman. Despite her more forward personality, she is uncertain of her future. Because of this she is taking a gap year. She is a full time waitress at the Roasted Lily Cafe. She is Homosexual Homoromantic, and is quite confident in her sexuality.
Her love interest is Rel (Left in the image), a more level headed young woman with a lot of pressure on her shoulders. She is a first year student at university, which is why she is only a part time waitress at the Roasted Lily Cafe. She is Demibisexual Demibiromantic, however she is unaware of the existence of the ace spectrum.
Mentioned sometimes over the course of the date, Kris is the manager and owner of the Roasted Lily Cafe. A no nonsense kind of woman, she often comes off as irritated at the world. Despite this, she is still a motherly and protective figure to her workers. She is Asexual Aromantic, with a “It’s fine, just not for me” disposition towards sex and romance.
What's Been Done?
I have currently done very little past the concept as I've been trying to narrow it down into a manageable scope for the last month. However, I expect the game to be very short, around 2k words with 5k words being my absolute maximum. I am also not planning on doing any art for the game unless I find myself with spare time.
