After reading the cursed play 'The King in Yellow', Trixie Glimmer Smith, a slacking student at Bluefield County University recounts the terrifying events that led to her needing an extended deadline on her coursework.
This story follows on from the events of Parsnip (https://bunbirb.itch.io/parsnip ) with a host of new characters and an expanded world.
The Testimony of Trixie Glimmer Smith is a comedic horror visual novel aiming for a late 2018 release on Itch.Io.
Everyone in the game is BIG GAY.*
*Except Parsnip who exists independently of concepts such as 'Gender' and 'Sexuality'
As Trixie uncovers the true nature of her world she may no longer be able to tell what is real and what is merely a trick of the mind!
Unlike most sanity mechanics, Trixie features a hidden insight score meaning you can never know how much you can believe!
Is the shadowy figure down the street a stalker, or just a rebellious youth illegally smoking underage?
What happened when Trixie blacked out in the basement on Daffodil Lane? Trixie sure doesn't know! But she somehow ended up possessing a forbidden play...
Did Parsnips comment have a hidden meaning, or was he just being really weird?
The game features a diverse cast of characters, including returning characters from Parsnip (No longer constrained by having to talk to Parsnip Bunner and his rather shallow understanding of interpersonal interactions)
New characters include:
- Our protagonist Trixie Glimmer Smith, an underachieving trans rat who owes her classmate a favour and is getting dangerously behind on her coursework.
- Gregg the baker, a cheerful sugar glider with a big smile, big heart and big tendency to commit petty theft.
- Heidi the Hyena. She has a taser, a baseball bat and a strange double life!
As well as the main story, there are three sub plots focusing on Trixies exploits with different characters.
Set in a world of anthropomorphic animals, psychic birds and cosmic gods, Trixie explores the rural England inspired Bluefield County and discover untold horrors lurking beneath the blue meadows.
Awoken once more from their eternal slumber in the black sarcophagus, Mez (https://twitter.com/MezmeroMania), has returned to make the game not look like shit!
Modern technology has allowed me to invent a new video gaming concept! Multiple endings! No longer must players be confined to a single ending, now their actions can change the ending of the game! A NEVER BEFORE SEEN LEAP IN GAMING NARRATIVE DESIGN!!!!
Thanks for reading!
