Regarding the launch, we reached out to C.C. Hill for a comment. Here’s what they had to say:
“As a published author, I’ve had the privilege of working with some great publishers such as Hosted Games. However, self-publishing my newest game was a whole different challenge.
It took me a year to create this game, and I had to navigate the complexities of setting up developer accounts on Steam and Apple Store, which was quite intimidating.
I’m grateful for the support and guidance of my fellow authors who have been through this process before, and I’m proud to say that I’ve successfully self-published my first game. I poured my heart and soul into this game, and I hope that players will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.”— C.C. Hill
The interactive novel is also available on Mobile through the Google Play and iOS App Store.
Previously, C.C. Hill has worked with interactive fiction giants such as Choice Of Games & Hosted Games, with Midnight Saga: The Monster.
We’ve also interviewed them regarding their writing career, and it provides invaluable insight into their life and working with publishers like CoG.
This novel seems to be a departure from her previous work. Not only is this mystery novel is self-published, but it’s also made in Twine instead of using ChoiceScript.
