aftermath: gears of hope and 4 more...
For those of you who don't know, Aftermath: Gears of Hope is the ambitious first installment of a three-part series. I've had this idea in my head for a world in which cyborgs are the minority for some time, now. However, the original theme, backdrop, etc. of the game have all changed drastically. In this post, I will explain the origins of the idea, how...

In Aftermath: Gears of Hope , your relationships with people will be very important. Depending upon your relationship with a character, there will be varying effects from your actions. For instance, if a character dislikes you, they might avoid you or taunt you. If they don't know you, they might try to get to know you or be completely indifferent to your...

Possible Setting Change Part 2

aftermath: gears of hope
A few days ago, I made a blog post about an idea I had about moving the setting of Aftermath: Gears of Hope from a high school to a college. Overwhelmingly, people wanted it kept at a high school level mainly because, from what I understand, my reasoning for not wanting to attract too young of an audience really isn't a big enough reason to make such a l...

Possible Setting Change

aftermath: gears of hope
So, I've been doing some thinking and research. As it turns out, a game taking place in a high school setting or other setting primarily occupied by younger age groups is highly likely to attract people of that particular age group, regardless of the intended age group. While there are exceptions, they are few and far between. Often times, a game develope...

Hello, everyone! I wanted to give you a progress update about Aftermath: Gears of Hope!

Not much has been made since the last time I updated, mainly because I'm waiting on some assets. However, I've done some mapping for club rooms, Peterson Manor, the school and a few other places I can't mention, due to importance to the story. However, I can assure yo...

Aftermath Fanmade Works

All edits are in purple Comic Sans.

I've been talking to some people in regards to fan stuff, such as fanfiction, fan games, people doing "voiced" versions of games, fancomics, fanart, genderbends and other stuff along those lines. Many people aren't fond of these things, whereas others are huge fans of them. As a creator, I would like to give my opini...

Hacking in Aftermath: Gears of Hope

Posted by Purple Phantom, 16 September 2016 · 519 views

So, after some thinking and discussion (seen here ), I have made some decisions about how hacking is actually going to work. I'm going back to my "original" plan. (Keep in mind I've been planning this game for around 5 or 6 years and my plans have changed. What I'm saying is my "original" plan is the first one I thought was good, but scrapped for a specif...

I've been working on the game quite a bit and have some larger updates that are or almost ready!

-It is now possible to hang out with one of the characters (Toby), but only if you go to the Pub. I need to copy/paste the event and fix things that don't quite fit in with the other locations.
-It is now possible to date that same character... To an e...

Hello! It's been a while since I've been on the forums! I've been hard at work on Aftermath: Gears of Hope while I've been off the site and I felt that I've finally made enough progress to tell you guys about it without it being a small list of, like, two things.


-NPC move routes for going to lockers, then to class.
-Some voi...

Paths (or more accurately, where do we go now?)

Posted by Purple Phantom, 31 May 2016 · 340 views

Paths (or more accurately, where do we go now?) In Aftermath: Gears of Hope , you can go along many different paths, each with their own unique set of endings. While developing the game, however, I've started to wonder... Are all of these paths really necessary? Would the game benefit from fewer paths? I mean, Hitlist Assassin (formerly known as Assassin's Greed) could just be a consequence. It could b...
