When's the next update coming ;_;
You used to be a beacon of hope. Now they only know you as the failure, the Unchosen. Will you rise above them? Will you become better or far worse than they could ever imagine?
Disenchanted is an interactive fiction novel that takes place in the hidden supernatural society of the modern world.
They found you living half in an orphanage and half on the streets of New York at the age of ten. The Oracle said you were the Chosen One, destined to defeat a great evil that is yet to arrive. Arrive it does, however, in your early childhood.
They called them the Phantom, a plague on the supernatural community, a politician gone mad.
The pressure is on as you begin your education at the New York Boarding School for Arcane Arts. Yet, as the prophecies start, you fail again and again.
Cameron Fletcher does not.
They are hailed a hero, and you are nothing. Not valuable enough to remain with your foster family, not worthless enough to toss back to the mortals.
You're normal. Maybe worse than normal, what with your history. You're Unchosen.
- Create your character. Customize gender, pronouns, appearance, skills, and personality.
- Choose how you feel towards your peers and former loved ones.
- Romance any of the ten options (one female, one male, and eight gender selectable) including the poly routes.
- Choose your species. Options include Nephilim, Cambion, Siren, Banshee, Basilisk, Draca, or Sorcerer.
- Decide on your magical specialties.
Lucia/Lucien "Luci" Rivera (Nephilim)(she/her or he/him), your ex-best friend. You used to live with their family before everything that happened. They ditched you when it became the popular thing to do. Are you bitter?
Penelope Eliades (Siren)(she/her), a student from the Mediterranean. She seems nice and is lovely to listen to, but she has fangs for a reason. This one shouldn't be crossed under any circumstances.
Cameron Fletcher (Sorcerer)(she/her, he/him, or they/them), the new Chosen One. Talented, charming, and everything you couldn't be. Are they actually nice or just condescending? You can't tell.
Viktor Orlov (Draca)(he/him), your best friend. The only one that stayed by your side after your disgrace, their family let you couch surf when the Riveras kicked you out.
Harlow Mitchell (Banshee)(she/they or he/they), the child of the Oracle who condemned you to a life in the supernatural world. You don't know if they're just bitter that you ended up disgracing their mother's reputation or if you just annoy them in general.
Amrita/Amrit "Ami" Singh (Nephilim)(she/her or he/him), another student at your college who comes from a long line of Nephilim on their father’s side. Set up for political office, but is generally against the idea.
Theodora/Theodore "Theo" Parker (Cambion)(she/her or he/him), they are quite possibly Cameron Fletcher's least favorite person in the world. Theo is top of their class, and many would consider them the Chosen One’s rival. They also happen to be your roommate in university.
Charlotte/Charles "Charlie" Ortiz (Basilisk)(she/her or he/him), a fellow student who works at the campus bookstore and is in a few of your classes. Very hot, very kind, and you find a dead body together. Uh oh.
Avery Monroe (Sorcerer)(she/her or he/him), the Phantom. Disappeared six years ago. Were they truly mad in their lust for power as the world claimed, or was there a reason behind their vendetta against the magical government?
??? (Wraith)(she/they or he/they), they are following you. They are in your home, in your head, and you cannot escape.

Ooo I enjoyed this demo. :)
Love the game can't wait till pay day to support you a bit lol
Hey, just wanna tell you how much I've enjoyed the demo and absolutely can't wait to read more!!
I think I might know who the wraith is–
I almost screamed when the demo ended!!
i love it, i can't wait for more!
The worst that could happen being unchosen nothing at all I believe
What Are the poly routes?
I am totally in love with this so far~
Help I love this!? Its already an amazing blend between school life and fantasy, and the cast relationships are written very well. I very much enjoy seeing how past events can impact character relationships, and the fact that popularity plays into the story too, makes the "high school" aesthetic feel much more real. Overall 10/10, wonderful start!
Oh wow, that literally blew me away a little! Very nice! The emotional responses are super well portrayed and authentic and thankfully the chara creation was mostly painless and pretty fast. It's fairly short, but already there is so much nuance to the attitude and relationships and I look forward to see it all play out! Thank you for writing, coding and sharing, I'm sure it was a pain, but I hope you had at least as much fun as I did skipping around and reading this!
typo after the gender choices: "You open your bedroom door and can already
hearing the chatter coming from the kitchen." and right behind that is the Sofka instead of Sofia.
"Katerina, sitting shotgun in the front next to their mom, mans the radio while Sofka is chattering away in the back seat between you and Viktor."Or is her name just Sofka?
Sofka is a nickname used among her family, her legal name is Sofia. Thanks for pointing out the typo.
it's just that k and i are relatively close together on the keyboard. I think that's a kyrillic naming thing with the -ka? Either way, the third time it came up I realized it wasn't a typo, but I was honestly too lazy to go back and edit the comment, sorry! ^^°
Congrats on the prologue!
One little thing about the gender choices: "you were born female, but identify as male" makes it sound like you picked an outfit. it's not a choice. "you were classified/assigned female at birth, but you identified as male" is more accurate.
Super cool! Can’t wait for the rest!
I did find a few writing errors though->
Sofia was often mistyped as Sofka
Once Theo in the male option was referred to as her
(There was another but I can’t remember it :,])
It was great overall though! Gl!!
Hey, I'll fix the Theo thing. Sofka is Sofia's nickname among her family, though :)
Okay 👍 but maybe make it a bit more consistent? Or make some note cause since ‘i’ and ‘k’ are by each other on the keyboard it could be mistaken as a typo as I did. Just a suggestion to add some way to make it more obvious. Great game though 👏
Also, I’d like to know how you did the stat code for the character. I’ve been wanting to incorporate something like that in my game ‘Ethereal’
Awww yeah! I've been waiting for this game since I saw it on tumblr, and this was great so far! The writing is nice, and the UI is very sleek, very fun. The characters so far are quite charming, and the MC's backstory seems to be quite intriguing. Can't wait to meet the new chosen one and our ex and give them a ....decidedly warm welcome. Excited for more!
hm when you pick draca with green wings u skip option to choose eye color :C
Is there a place we can find descriptions of the characters?
Hi! My tumblr @disenchantedif has more details on the characters!
Hm, I found the character profiles section, but there doesn't seem to be anything there besides height and age. Is it still being worked on?
Hi, if you scroll back a bit there’s a casting post split into two parts on the page. There’s also some character art.
I think maybe I don't understand how navigation works on tumblr... I don't have a tumblr myself.
Ok, finally managed to find it by somehow navigating to a different pagesort (no idea how I managed to do that though.) So the characters all just look like normal humans even though none of them are?
That's just their casting. Obviously, I can't cast an actual siren as Penelope, a draca as Viktor, etc, etc. For more accurate descriptions, they are described as they're introduced in the game and I'm commissioning art as I'm able.
Yes a new one!! Just finished Fallen Lights the other day, time to try this one out
