I've been working on this project for some time, I wanted a text-based game set in a post-apocalyptic future and since I didn't find anything like that out there, I decided to create my own: Ethos of Darkness.

The game brings you to a ravaged future in which you wake up with no memory about how you got there. The playable character is totally customable regarding sex and appearance. The possible enemies largely vary in their appearance and will try brutally to take advantage of the player at any chance. The settings can be configured to allow/avoid homosexuality, furry stuff, etc.

I'm still developing the story and updating the game with new content, but it's already fully playable. I really hope you like it and please write me if you have any comments.

After being quite discouraged by the server costs and the little revenue (and intrusiveness) of the add solutions I tries the game went down a few weeks ago.

Finally I have managed to find a solution to make the game run without requiring a webserver, or more properly, a centralized one. The solution combines Flask for Python and the module py2exe to compile all the game data into a .exe file.

The most clear drawback is that now the game is only available for PC's running Windows, while before it allowed pretty much any platform with Internet access. The advantages are that it can be now played online and of course that now I don't have to pay any server costs (or any costs whatsoever, except for the domain that I'm still keeping for now), which has allowed me to remove all advertisement except a few links to my Patreon page. This definitely guarantees the survival of the game.

The download link and some simple installation instructions can be found at ethosofdarkness.com.

Well, this update has been long and painful to release but was definitely needed. Difficult to define it content-wise, since I've changed the whole file, event and scene structure. The sex sequence is completely different, as well as most text and descriptions, perks and many other dynamics.

The main goal of this update was not adding or replacing content though, but replacing the buggy and rigid XML tree system that supported the game. I have not abandoned completely XML, but the gameplay elements no longer hang directly from a XML structure, which made updating and growing the game structure slow and clumsy.

There's still a lot to polish and expand, but at least now I have a powerful base to support it.

The new version can as usual be found at ethosofdarkness.com.

Big update!

I should really be more thorough taking notes of the changes for each version, so probably I'm forgetting something.

Three new different environments, with new types of enemies
New weapons and clothes types
All sex sequences reworked, more descriptions, more reference to all characters physical characteristics
New "Describe" button for both the playable character and NPCs
More options for consensual sex
Various bugs fixed

This version will only be available for +5$ Patrons until next version is released, while version 1.2.1 is now available to everybody from ethosofdarkness.com

Hope you guys enjoy it!

I'm not quite happy with the buttons interface. I need to separate between targeted and general options, and also give enough information about what each actions does. I don't think the current setup is the best solution.

Next big update will include the option of playing as aggressor in the after combat sex-scene, and I'll need to implement even more targeted and general actions into this menu. Any suggestions to make it more practical?
