In the wake of great tragedy, people always ask why.
Why did I fall sick?
Why couldn't she love me?
Why did they have to die?
I can tell you.
You were hurt so that you could have the power to hurt others in turn.


What is this?

Con is branching narrative.

It features eleven different endings, custom art, and a smooth jazz soundtrack.

In it, you play as a vigilante trying to avenge his best friend's death.

At the game's conclusion, you will kill one of the eight characters closest to you.

They have it coming.

Back again

Well, here I am again... Not 100% sure if I am going to finish this, but I'm back with fresh eyes and I feel motivated to at least try. I got the urge to continue when I wanted to start a new VN project. (I will also say that I ended up losing my most recent VN work file so I think some pictures are old/missing).

I have updated art already added to this page and a new demo with what I have improved. Not sure about the story script; I need to sit down and read through that and make A LOT of changes. Along with the Renpy script which I have been trying to relearn.

Which regards to my previous post about making this a novel, yes, I did finish that (but still needed massive edits), but I want to just have a VN version of my story is creeping back. I still have the first few chapter up on https://eriksblue.wordpress.com/

Need a hand? Lemme know. I'm always down for some proofing.

Btw, 'rouge' should be 'rogue' in the summary. It's one of those obnoxious french loan words like bureau where the spelling relies on some kind of inexplicable moon-logic to decide which vowels go where.
The first section of the demo (with Roy and Glen) seems to be from the unedited version of the script. Not sure why. There's also a couple of grammar/flow issues that I'm just now catching in my own additions to the script, plus a couple that must've crept in during the inputting-the-word-document-into-renpy process.

We should do a re-combing of the script before our next release. It'll improve things a lot.

I love the smooth jazz, though. And your artwork has gotten so much better.
Thank you for telling me i must have not seen it I did see a few errors that i fixed there must have been more.
Once chapter four is complete, I'll go back through and edit 1-4 again. I think there are a couple of ideas we need to seed into the earlier chapters, and I also want to make sure I haven't derped continuity somewhere. Once that's done, I'll probably do an editorial playthrough of the game once it's released, just to make sure nothing sneaks into the final version.
i'm gonna go and look at the script again to see what i need to fix. It might take me a while cuz i caught a stomach flew.
No worries. Take your time and recover.
Smooth Jazz buyed me! You're mean!
That jazz is incredibly smooth. It was also completely EriksBlue's idea. I would never have thought to mix smooth jazz and high fantasy together, but there's kind of a noir-ish element to the story, so it works.

Thank you for checking out the page.

And stay tuned for what may be a newer, less-of-a-tech-demo demo.

Played your game, but it was more like a very long intro with one same background to it the whole time...? (thx for explaining.)

Edit : ah, maybe I should try the update!
When the script for Act 1 is done that will used as the finished demo. I'm still working on new background art and as I finish it I will continue to update the demo. I will leave blog messages when their is a update.

Oh my god. I am sorry. That thing is basically a technical demo.

The updated demo is going to be a lot more polished. Expect significant updates to writing, art, sound design, and gameplay (there will be actual dialog choices, as opposed to the on-rails tech demo.)

If the characters and the situation seem like something you might be interested in (or you'd like to write a review of something that could be a crazy trainwreck,) please stick around. The script for the new demo is 50 pages and counting, but the end is in sight. It will feature things like character depth. And ghosts.

Thank you again for taking the time to give this a shot, and I hope you haven't been completely scared away.

In any case I've been following this, entirely custom and an idea that it could be interesting, and had been wanting to play it for a long time, so, yes, I was a bit surprised! but I see, not ready yet, so, I'll certainly play the next demo. For when (if you know)? As for a review, I'm not the best at this, but maybe if I make an effort, I can come out with something, I'll have to see.


I'd be totally flattered if you reviewed the demo when it came out, but there's no pressure. Any attention from anyone at all is a welcome change for this game ;p

I'm not sure we have a definite deadline for the new demo, but I just crunched through a few scenes, so we're still making headway.

A review would be really awesome I'll get to work on the artwork but I have college classes so I'm sorry for the slow pace I got to keep.

No problem, just unexpected, art looks good, take your time.
I kinda wish I could post teasers for the script, since there's part of it that I'm very happy with, but it kinda sucks without the context.

I will say, though: hot tub scene like you've probably never seen before.

EriksBlue can back me up on this one.

Oh Yeah!
p.s. kumada I sent you something.
Got it. Responses sent.

And please tell me if I am being an ass by nitpicking this thing. I have zero artistic ability, so I'm not really in a position to critique.

Hey everybody can have nitpicks, no problem.
Oh my god. Act 1 is without end.

What is this madness?
