A title with big plans considering its hefty main goal. This is the Kickstarter for an LGBT+ themed Sci-Fi thriller Love Shore.
Setting Summary: Welcome to Love Shore, a city that transforms at night. The futuristic metropolis also just happens to also be populated with cyborgs, old gods hidden in the depths of a criminal underground, and humans eager to crawl their way to the top, no matter what the cost.
After a fertility crisis changed the landscape of the city for good, a single company stepped in to help the residents: Life S. Incorporated, a biotech firm that claimed to be able to build life out of raw DNA, creating a fully formed human with thoughts, feelings, and morality of their own.
Their minds, physical appearance, and personality would be drawn from their parents’ DNA, but the children would be ‘born’ using artificial bodies. This new generation would be called the S.Humans: a non-aging, tough form of new life.
Love Shore is a visual novel game that takes concepts we’ve always loved in sci-fi, action, and horror and blends them together to create something wild. It features a queer, diverse cast, a seemingly endless city, and a story of coming into yourself and doing what you think is right…with a heavy dose of drama and violence mixed in for good measure.
Obviously the protagonist of interest around these parts is Farah so let us briefly look over her bio:
Ex-military and arrested for brawling, Farah spends her first day out of prison reconnecting with friends. Unfortunately, the stars are not aligned and she quickly finds out that Imani, a close and personal friend and doctor, has gone missing in the Underworld. Team up with a companion or go at it alone.
Both protagonists have four romance routes with Farah having three ladies and a 4th one to be revealed should the KS be successful.
There is a lot to go over but essentially the plan for this game is to create a title Visual novel with Dating-Sim and RPG-ish elements where the choices will not only affect the people around the chosen protagonist (Either Farah or Sam) but also the protagonists’ quests, meaning that while playing as Farah players will run into Sam and can choose whether to help, ignore or deter their own journey. Something like that.
