Why Did I Make This Game?
Currently, Walking-Dreams (another co-owner of DDmeow) is writing up stories for our future games; I (Sinister Lamb) have to come up with content to practise my gamedev skills. Having experienced so many weird incidents, I decided why not just make them into games?
How Accurate Is This Story?
It would have been called a memoir instead of a novel if I could remember every single detail of the incident. But no, I couldn’t. I had to fill in the memory voids with logic and imagination, and now it’s become slightly fictional.
The part where mum teleports to the kitchen is undoubtedly fabricated (due to technical reasons). The dialogues are not exact in words but more or less the same. I am not sure dad did it only three times. It could be more.
It’s a good thing it is partly fictional. “Visual novel” sounds much more exciting than a memoir or non-fiction. The best part is that I won’t be blamed for any inaccuracy. Defamation wouldn’t be a thing I need to worry about.
And mum said after playing, “You made me look like an angry mum.” I said, “yes.”
