California Bound

Version: 0.0.5

California Bound is the story of Emily who leaves home after graduating high school and travels to California to chase her dream of becoming a movie star. In this story, your decisions decide what fate is in store for Emily. Will she become a star or something else entirely?

While the overall arc tells the Emily's story with character building, moral arguments, and plot points found in a novel; the game play consists of mini role play elements as you help Emily find a place to live, get a job, make friends, and earn enough money to chase her dreams. While chance has a major effect on your actions, Emily's attributes and skills also greatly effect the outcome of her actions.

California Bound is in active development with updates averaging every two weeks either here or on my Patreon page.
