Hello! I'm excited to take part in this year's IGMC.
My project: Repeaters
Engine: RPG Maker VX Ace
In 2138, a method of terraforming called repeating has been discovered. Teams are sent to distant planets with technology to clone themselves. When the clone dies, their consciousness is transferred back to their real body, and they can start the process over with a new clone.
You'll play as Astra, who is the only surviving member of her team after an accident killed her teammates' real bodies. Astra is now stranded on an uninhabited planet with only a sassy robot for company. The main focus will be exploring, with a bit of combat, as you'll have to find materials to fix the base so you can call for help.
Dying will not result in a game over, because Astra can repeat. However, with every repeat, she'll lose sanity. If she goes insane, you'll get a bad ending.
I also plan to include a survival system, so Astra will have hunger, thirst, and rest that need to be maintained or she'll lose sanity.
