Hi there, Xel here on behalf of SMG. It’s Sunday night as of this post, and we’re three full days from our first route’s release! I wanted to share with you all some important information I’d already promised in the past.
Our game is integrated with Steam! I’ve already played it through the platform and it should be just about ready to go! (Pic of the beta Steam page for base game below)
Here’s the run-down on everything you might want to know before launch day:
The game is split into a free base game that includes the Prologue, Chapter 1 for Shou, and the original sneak peeks for the other, unreleased guys.
This means each route (as they’re released in the coming months) will be purchasable as DLC, both through the Steam store and through the game itself.
The gameplay length for Shou’s route has been timed as being between 4.5 and 5 hours long, depending on your reading style and speed of course.
The price for a single route will be…$4.99!
I think that’s all for now, we’ll have more to share in the upcoming days! Thank you for your support everyone, it means the world to us!
After a few years of staying out of Mystic Falls, you decide to return. You’re at the bar drinking a scotch, when an old ‘friend’ of yours, Damon Salvatore walks in and sits next to you. “Y/N? If your back, that must mean hell’s frozen over.” You chuckle and roll your eyes. “Damon, you come around like a bad habit.” He smirks. “Well that’s exactly what I am.” He replies. “Yeah, I know.” Before you’d left, you and Damon were..close. But when you left all of that ended. “So what brings you back to Mystic Falls?” He asks as he takes a sip of bourbon.
You shrug. “I just missed it I guess, I have friends here Damon, and I’ve missed them.” It’s pretty obvious that you’re talking about him, since you basically hated everyone else.
He smiles ear to ear. “Well, we’ve got some catching up to do, am I right?” You smile and nod. “Absolutely.”
You couldn’t believe your eyes. There he was, standing in front of you. The man that you never thought you’d see again, the one whose body you’d buried months ago. And when you ran to him, felt his skin against yours, you were finally able to believe he was here and that this wasn’t another hallucination. The love of your life was in your arms again and for the moment, it’s all that mattered.
Elena: It was my birthday. Damon and I spent the entire summer looking for Stefan, and I was trying to put on a good face because Caroline was throwing this party for me but I was so sad… I was two seconds from deciding I wasn’t going to go - I wasn’t going to leave the room - until Damon walked in to give me my…birthday gift. It was the necklace that Stefan had given me. I’d lost it, but Damon knew what the necklace meant to me; what it meant about my feelings for Stefan. Even though he loved me, he gave me the one thing that represented hope for me and his brother. I knew how much it hurt him. But he did it. It was…the most selfless that he’s ever been. And in that moment, I loved him. I didn’t want to, I mean, it terrified me, but…for that moment, I loved him.
