Chapter 3 has been released!

Once demoted, you are trying to make yourself useful to the Community and your team. Help Sabine prepare for her first scout, gather information about the people in black who tried to kill you, and try not to miss scouting too much. When presented with a plausible theory about the People Across the Orange Plains, will you take a risk and seek out an answer?  

Thank you:

  • Jeneara, my proofreader who is already irreplaceable. Thank you so much!

On my to do list:

  • A glossary – we’re starting to meet so many new characters, and a glossary is definitely needed at this point! It’s on the way. 
  • Improved saves – the cache based saves still make me want to bang my head against the wall. Still working on it!


  • 10 more save slots added
  • Minor typo fixes

Content warning:

Violence, very brief vomit mention. 

Typos or other issues?

Feel free to contact me here, on Tumblr or email me at Typos still slip by me once in a while (...often). Thank you!

Next chapter?

Fantastic writing and such an interesting story so far! I'm really looking forward to the next chapter :)

Main issue is not knowing which guy to go for but I'll manage somehow..!

(1 edit) (+2)

I like your writing (the language of it), the way you segment it for easy reading, and balancing variety of choice versus manageable branching so that you can aim for 2~3-week update schedule.

Would be keen to help you code the next interactive-fiction (unless you decide to switch mid-way through this one) in SugarCube so the save system might be easier to manage. XD But whatever makes things easier for you is the best.

Take care.


Thank you so much! Definitely attempting to manage branching at this point, but once the "route choice" happens...who knows. 

Thank you for your offer! I think I may use SugarCube for my next game if I can maintain reasonable frustration with the saves for this game (no promises). Not sure about recoding this one but I've definitely considered it. 


Lol, I am a sucker for this story!  I can't wait to read what happens next, this game has me hyped everytime I read it. Being the mush that I am I decided to go with Ollie's route first and that scene with him in the tent had me tense lmao. I was ready to run away from my laptop like MC  did ahaha. I love it, this feels like I am on a real adventure! 

Whenever I get the time I am drawing my main character, you have inspired me to draw something again!

As always, take care of yourself out there!


Amazing!!! I would love to see your drawing at some point!


It’s getting harder to decide who I want to go for first, and I was already undecided to begin with so good job Anya. :D Though I have to say, that scene in Oliver’s tent? 10/10, loved every second. 

As always, I had lots of fun playing. Thank you for updating the chapter so quickly and good luck with the next one!

Thank you SO much!!! I'm so so glad you liked it, and Ollie's scene 💚
