In the summer of 2027, Retia Police Department.
Andre receives a call from the captain.
Captain: Andre, I'm the captain.
I’m gonna to give you a special mission.
Andre: Yes! Always waiting your orders.
(Finally, a mission!)
(I was like a reserve backup working in office. Now It's time to do something!)
Captain: I guess, you know the "Mafia" in the city, don't you?
Captain: They've been doing a lot recently.
I’ve received so many reports, including drug and human trafficking, etc.
Even the shooting cases you know are triggered by them.
But...almost every time we catch
scapegoats, we can't actually hit them...
Especially their leader, no one has ever really seen him.
He's called "The boss".
Andre: The Mafia uses the city as their “headquarter” since they exist.
Captain: One of the reasons for the existence of the Special Action Team is to destroy them.
Now let me give you some information.
Jack, was a killer hired by the Mafia, we just have arrested him earlier...
Fortunately, he has confessed.
According to him, ‘The Boss’ runs a car racing business...
...and, is also the biggest sponsor of the National racing Championship.
Agent Andre, you’re going to be an undercover cop...
...to find the location of ‘The Boss’.
He's so cunning. We've caught three substitutes before you join us.
But no one really knows where actually he is. We need to know where he truly hide!
This is so important.
I trust you, as I trust my wife's cooking foods…
Oh, I'm joking.
So, are you ready?
Andre: To be honest, I don't have much confidence…
…but I will try my best to do it well!
Captain: You used to be one of the talents in the academy. Boy, I really like you.
So, there’s a surprise for you.
Captain: A car is waiting for you in carpark.
Identity information has been uploaded to the central processing unit on car.
It...was my 25 years old birthday present...My father gave me on the day. I can't forget....
Anyway, it belongs only to you now. Hope you like it.
When you find a blue, 2-door, racing car there, that's it! Just get on it.
Yes sir! Thank you!
Captain: By the way...I'll send you a recommendation letter with Jack’s signature later.
I believe it will be very useful for the mission.
Just check your email on your PC. Then print it out....
...and, good luck, boy.
Go east then you can reach the mafia building when you've done what you're doing.
The phone hung up.
Andre: I got works to. But I still want to see the present first of all.
OK, let me check the inbox…
Alright, click ‘Print’…..‘Connecting to printer#27’…
Andre goes straight to the front exit.
Andre: I can't wait to see the car!
But I got an investigation report has not yet finished. Should I do it now?
Come on, let's do the report tomorrow.
It's rare for the captain to be so generous.
I can't let him down.
Andre goes straight to the carpark.
Andre: That’s it!
My god… A Hartmann f152!
V8 engine… six piston brake system…and carbon fiber spoiler!
Although it was an old model, it's definitely classic!
Dad always said he wanted to own one as a collection...
…Why do I think of him again?
I hope he doesn't get involved with the Mafia.
...and I will find where you are. You made mom sad…
We really want to know what you've been doing all these years.
Andre gets on the car.
On-car AI: Welcome, driver.
Passed. Driver Andre Rizzo. Scanning fingerprints…
Succeeded. Uploading information to synchronous database...
Processed. Engine starting…
Have a good time and safe driving, Mr. Rizzo.
Andre: Oh...finally, it all done. Took me five minutes.
Anyway, this is an old guy…
Now, I believe that I can join in street racings with this powerful horse.
...well, I know street racings are illegal. However...to enhance the performance...I need money.
Mom definitely will disagree about me...No way to ask money from her...
Ever since she saw the TV news about the car accidents, she always thought that refitting cars would only bring danger to people.
Fine. I will try to get money by my self.
Winners will be rewarded and losers will lose money, of course.
There's a phase, winner winner chicken dinner...
Should I join in a racing tonight, or just try to meet "The Boss" in his 'Headquarter' ASAP?
Should I join in a racing tonight, or just try to meet "The Boss" in his 'Headquarter' ASAP?
Anyway, just remember the AI said, drive safely and becareful...
Use ‘WASD’ to move.
Hartmann f152 is a car with great refitting potential.
Now, Dave’s modification store is opening.
Players can use game
built-in currency to purchase modification parts to enhance the performance of the car.
Drive to the suburb (Road to south on this map) automatically triggers a street racing.
The system will randomly decide whether the player
wins or loses.
After winning, the game built-in currency can be used for car modification or other consumptions.
If players got F152 modification accessories, the chances of winning will increase.
There's one thing needs to be noticed———--
If the player loses more money than Andre has left, he
will mortgage the car to his opponent and lose the
job. The game will be over...
((When the player triggered a bad ending—--
Andre has to pay gambling money...but he's broke.
Although he wanted to compete again to win back the money he had lost, those racers never took risks without gambling money.
Andre knows he can't get out of here tonight unless he mortgages his car to them...
Afterwards, although Andre borrowed some money to redeem the car, it's too late... the car had been sold.
He couldn't get in touch with the racers. Without the car, how could Andre accomplish the task assigned to him by the captain?
Bad End 5.))
(If the player choses to go the “Headquarter”.)
Andre arrived the 'headquarter'.
This is an ordinary office building, slightly old in appearance...
A mafia guard: Stop! What are you doing here?
Andre: Dude, don’t get excited.
I’m here to join the organization with a recommendation from Jack.
A mafia guard: Are you telling a truth? Jack usually doesn't give people any recommendation or anything like that.
At the least I never heart that before.
Andre: Oh, I'm probably not a "normal" person. I’m joking.
Andre showed the letter to the security guard.
A mafia guard: Well, Well, this letter...doesn't look like a forgery...Uhhh….
...Wait, boy, I guess you’re so rich, aren’t ya?
Did this F152 cost you a lot of money?
Andre: No, it’s just an old car.
The mafia guard: I have no culture. Don't lie to me. Should I say you are so modest?
Andre: Haha...maybe...well, if there's nothing else, I am afraid that l have to go.
The mafia guard: Fine, never mind. Go talk to our boss.
The elevator goes upstairs. Andre then face to ‘The Boss’.
The Boss: Are you the new guy that Jack recommended?
I haven't been contacted him for a long time.
Maybe somewhere to spend a holiday with several mistresses.
The Boss: OK, so, what is the most important thing in the 21st century?
Since you are recommended by him, you must be a talented person.
Looking at your youthful appearance, I think there is much to be done in the future.
Andre: Yeah…you are right…
The Boss: Brilliant, now a “long-term” task for you.
You are responsible for delivering all our important customers.
You are also responsible for their safety.
The last thing…
You have to keep today's business as a secret.
If I know you release it to anyone…
You'll regret it.
Andre walks out of the building.
Now the player can act freely, take part in street racing or enter the Mafia 'Headquarter' to take escorting missions.
Compared with the former, the success rate of escort mission is lower.
But it will get more game built-in currency.
Note that if you fail, the game will go into a bad end. (It’s a good habit to save your game progress regularly)
(If the player failed.)
((Unfortunately, The escorting mission was failed...
His car fell into a river on the way out of police pursuit.
Even though he had been rescued and taken to hospital, he lost all his memories for the past ten years because of the strong impact.
What should he do in the future?
Perhaps the only person who cares most about this problem is his mother, Emily…
Bad End 4.))
When you have unlocked and purchased all the modification parts, go home and interact with a bed, is the way to enter to next chapter.
Andre: Dave has helped me to upgrade my car to its best condition…
However I'm fed up with illegal street racing and escort missions.
But I must not let Boss perceive that I am an undercover, that would ruin my career.
What should I do afterwards?
Chapter 2 End.
Chapter1 Part B
That night, Andre gets a call.
???: Hello, Mr. Fizzo. This is a call from the Retia City Police Department (RCPD).
Andre: Oh, police? So anything I can help?
I'm not a fugitive by the way.
Police: Please be assured, Mr. Fizzo. Of course, we know that you don’t have any criminal record.
This time we just want to offer you a place if you are interested in joining our Retia Police Academy.
Oh, it's the “legendary” school with a very low admission rate, isn't it?
But unfortunately, I have decided not to waste my time on that kind of things.
Police: In consider of your special performance today, we will recruit you unconditionally and at no cost.
Which means you don't have to pay for it.
A: Have you been watching me all the time? Isn't that a violation of privacy?
Oh, sorry...I mean, I did't do anything special today. Everything was normal.
Police: Actually, the person you helped today is our chief’s daughter.
She spoke to us personally about what happened today.
A: It’s my pleasure to help citizens.
It just lift a finger.
If nothing else... sorry, I’m busy now.
Police: That’s fine. We are looking forward your reply.
A: (It does’t make any sense to go to police Academy unless I can
solve my father's missing case.)
The next afternoon, Andre finished work and walking out of the store.
A: I stand at the counter six hours every day.
Now, I just want to lie on bed and do
Fortunately, nothing happened today.
The public order in Retia city is relatively good.
I was lucky to be able to run into robbery in the daytime, not midnight, haha.
When he was thinking about yesterday, he felt hit by someone.
Hey! You! Watch out!
You hear me?
The man leaves in a hurry.
A: The man looks weird. Well, Forget it, it's not the first time happened.
Andre picked up a card.
This is like an ID card. Everyone in the
country has it, of course I got one.
Let me see it…
Maybe another person with the same name?
The city has a million permanent population!
Are there many people with the same name? Can’t believe it.
Anyway, I must catch up on him.
The man goes into a nearby lane. Andre runs after him.
At the entrance of the lane. Andre hears a conversation.
A: Ah-ha! Found you!
1. Don't act rashly, hide and listen to the conversation.
2. I don't care that much, just see who they are.
(Bad end 2, Andre enters the lane and just about to speak…
…the mystery man pulls a pistol out of his arm…
…points it at Andre's forehead…
Andre wants to say something…
…but, everything is too late…
…then, the mystery man pulls the trigger...)
Option 1: Andre's intuition tells him not to act rashly. He hides at the entrance and watching the situation.
Mystery Man: Finally, You're here.
The man: Well, here I am.
Mystery Man: Hope you already prepared the money.
The man: It's already in your bank account. Just have check.
Mystery Man: No need, I trust you.
The man: So where are the goods?
The mysterious man takes out a bag.
Mystery man: This is the best quality portion in this batch of heroin.
It's specially reserved for you.
You've been in the organization for almost...fifteen years. A special offer for you.
The Man: Yeah, it's been nearly fifteen years, I just…couldn’t leave. Because of you and the boss.
But it doesn't matter.
What is on your hand, is the most important thing, isn’t it?
Mystery man: Ha-ha-ha, it makes sense. Then it won't delays the trade.
The Man: I'll be here on time next month.
Mystery man: Happy cooperation.
The mystery man and the man then leave.
(Damn it, I didn't see his face clearly
in the end.)
I will try to find who you are.
If the man actually is my dad.
Damn it! I have to solve it!
Andre, never lose hope, there must be a way.
I must go back to home now it's nearly dinner time.
In the evening…
Telephone beeps… Andre is calling the police department.
(Emily is eavesdropping outside of the door…)
A: Hello, is this the Retia City Police?
Police: Hello, we’ve been waiting for you!
It seems that it seems that you are ready to tell us the answer!
Police: we know time is precious, to us, to you and everyone.
In fact, we urgently need justice, people like you to join us.
So do you accept the invitation?
2. No, I don’t.
(Bad end 3, Andrew rejected the opportunity. Police said they respect Andre’s choice. Afterwards, Andre turned off his cellphone. He lay on the bed and soon fell asleep.
In his dream, he dreamed his father Frank, who was dragging a luggage and seemed to be coming home from a long distance. He waved to Andre. Andre ran to Frank like a runaway wild horse. However, the distance between them has not been
shortened.... Then the sunshine grew brighter and more dazzling...
...until they were shrouded....
After that, although Andre often works in convenient store or restaurants, he is still in short supply. Since then, he has never seen his father again.)
A: I'm sorry, but I still want to live like this.
Police station: Sir, you...
A: I'd like to say that, but I'm lucky to find a clue about my father today.
So… I finally decided to join you.
No matter what the future holds, at least, the hope is there.
Better to be a policeman rather than to live a plain life every day.
Police: Sir… Brilliant. We’re glad you said that.
We will contact you for admission shortly.
Emily: (Although I want Andre to go to an ordinary college like others.)
(But it's his choice. It's better than doing nothing.)
(I should support him as well.)
From that day on, Andre joined Retia Police Academy.
The instructor who trained him was a retired veteran.
At first, he thought Andre was not a suitable person for this kind of training, because Andre's physical strength and perseverance did not meet expectations.
Andre wanted to give up more than once during his study.
But his inner sense of justice and the will of better life in the future kept him going.
Of course, Andre has dreamed of his father more than once...
...but he knows that people can't live by dreams.
To change his live, he has to start by changing himself.
In order to find his father's whereabout, but also for the family.
In the end, his instructor finally recognized his achievements...
...and he successfully completed a year and a half of study.
Surprisingly, Andre unexpectedly became one of the best students!
It's a fact he didn't even think of.
With this advantage, he was successfully assigned to the RCPD Special Action Team.
Which means, to be an special agent...
Chapter 1 Ends.
Chapter 1 Part A
In 2026, Retia city, the Retia Kingdom. Garden Street.
Andre is laying on the bed.
(My family is under happiness until the day of the championship.)
(From that day on, everything changed.)
(I thought I would have a happy life, but I was wrong.)
“According to our reliable information, there was an accident has occurred in the 6th Retia National racing Championship. "
"The renowned driver Frank Rizzo, drove his modified vehicle that bursted a left-rear tyre on 200 metres before the finish line. "
“The vehicle had rushed out of the track and has injured three staff members. Frank Rizzo was taken to the hospital, although he insisted that he was not injured. "
“The police have launched an investigation into the incident, not excluding the possibility of human involvement.”
(I can't forget the news I saw on TV ten years ago…)
(Indeed, the news was right. My dad only suffered skin injuries,)
(But, since then, Dad has seldom returned home.)
(It's no use trying to persuade my mother.)
(The living room is often accompanied by their quarrels, with alcoholic terrible smell.)
(Mom also gradually lost her smile. Even on her birthday.)
(Dad has been missing since the graduation day of primary
(It's no use reporting to the police, they've lost clues about him.)
(Was him a such of person that worth our painstaking search?)
(Perhaps he's living a happier life somewhere on earth.)
(Why I’m thinking about him? That’s strange.)
(It’s time to do jobs. The electricity bill hasn't been paid yet this month.)
(Life is hard.)
Andre gets up from bed.
Use "WASD" on your keyboard to move.
To move faster, by holding the "SHIFT" key.
Now, try to go out from the room.
Well done. Now you can investigate the house freely.
Just standing next to the right place, and then press
There's a little secret in another bed room.
Just go and DOUBLE check the book-self.
Emily heard that and comes out the room to stop him.
Emily: Andre, where are you going?
Don't tell me you’re going to be drunk again!
Andre:Relax, The bar is not opening during the daytime.
A part-time job in convenience store.
The electricity bill hasn't been paid yet for this month.
E: You’re kidding me. I don't think you should waste your time on such of things.
A: Mom, you don’t need to say any more.
Anyway, I won't go to the school.
Don't you know I've been laughing at by everyone because of my dad?
Cool, now I’m the superstar of those terrible bullying guys.
E: That shouldn't be the reason why you don't go to the school.
A: You don’t have to say anymore on this.
E: I'm your mom. What I’m always doing is consider about you!
A: Thank you, but now I just wanna to do jobs rather than the school.
Anyway, I'll be back before dinner.
Andre goes out the door.
Emily: (Andre has become like this since that day.)
(I’m afraid he'll become the same person as his father.)
(It’s really worrying...)
(On garden street) Andre: It's time to do the part-time job.
How many pints I had last night? Don't remember that...
OK, I got to go...
The game now switches to Andre's perspective. The modification shop is not open yet. the restaurant and convenient store are open, and drink machines are available.
Finally Andre takes a job in the convenient shore.
A: Emmmm...seems the shop owner is not here today.
Well, I have to stand behind the cashier counter to do the job.
OK, let’s do it!
6 hours later...
Andre: Finally, it's time to get off work. I really wanna to have a pint for fun now.
Alcohol makes me happy!
Sometimes I imagine that I can cross to another parallel world.
To be a warrior, to steel myself, and then slay a dragon that threatens mankind, finally rescue a princess.
Wish the princess marries me and then, I’ll be the king.
At last, a happy life…
….this is unlikely to happen, hahaha.
Daydreaming is terrible.
Are all the fairy tales lies?
A girl suddenly runs in and comes to Andre in a panic.
A young girl: Help! Help me!
Andre: What's wrong?!
A young girl: Robbery! Someone took my purse!
Would you help me to solve it out? Please!
Jesus! What should I do now?
Story option branches:
1. Leave the job and chase the mugger.
2. It's better not to leave the job without permission.
(Option 2: Bad end 1.
Andre refused the girl's request and thought that leaving the post without permission would be punished by the shop owner. So Andre advised the girl to report to the police station, and claimed he didn't want to be involved. Now, Andre still lives a plain life. Although he often works in the store or other places, he is still in short supply. Happiness will never comes with little wages. Since then, he has never seen his father again...)
(Option 3: Andre: No, no time to waste! Have to do something!
Then repeat the options )
Andre rushes out, catches up with the mugger and
snatches the purse back.
The mugger is so angry that he punches him on the stomach.
You bastard! I warn you, you 'd better give up the damn purse! We've already called police!
Although Andre is sitting on the floor in pain, he hold the purse tightly in his arms.
The mugger had no choice but to escape in a hurry.
Then, Andre walks back to the store.
Andre: ((This is the first time I've experienced such emergency like this.....)
The young girl: Are...are you alright?
Ah! Your shirt is dirty.
Yeah, I’m good. Don’t worry.
Damn it, I couldn’t catch him to the police.
Fortunately, I got the purse back.
Here's your purse. Take care of it and don’t let it happened again.
Oh, I should probably say, hope there won’t be a next time :)
A young girl: Thank you very much. You’re such a hero! I’m very grateful to you.
I would have fallen in love with you if I don’t have a boyfriend.
A: Er... Ha-ha, well, that’s a nice joke. You are welcome.
The young girl leaves the store.
A: (Not she only, most of girls in my age that I’ve meet before, all got a boyfriend.)
(I don't have much money, but I really want to fall in love.)
(Even if it's just a moment.)
(Life is hard......)
Chapter 1 Part A End
10 years ago, Retia city, the Kingdom of Retia, a rainy night.
Mystery Man: There's a big deal this time. The goods need to be transported by you.
I don't know which bastard leaked the news. Since last Friday, the police have blocked roads into the city, and all vehicles have to be checked.
Frank: I heard about it from the boss, but I don't want to be involved at this time.
Mystery Man: Why?
Frank: You know, I have a family in happiness. My wife and son need me.
Only this time I don't want to do it. It's too dangerous.
Mystery Man: ‘The organization’ needs you.
Frank: I've done a lot.
Mystery Man: Is that mean, you want to give up the business from ‘The organization’?
Frank: That's almost what it means. What else would you like me to say?
Mystery Man: How dare you say that.
Do you really think it's so easy to get out of the control of ‘The organization’ ? That's naive.
It seems you’ve really forgotten the kindnesses of the boss?
The boss has been working hard to achieve your status as an excellent racing driver today.
Even the qualification of the National Racing Championship is settled by the boss, right?
Frank: I definitely know, it's because of the boss that I can achieve today.
Anyway, I will thank him for his kindnesses.
But now, I can't leave my family and do this at risk.
Mystery Man: I'll ask you for the last time.
DO it or NOT?
Frank: I don't want to repeat it again.
Mystery Man: Fine. You will regret it.
You've broken up with ‘The organization’ and the boss won't let you go.
The Mystery Man turned and left.
Frank looked at him and wanted to
say something, but he gave up. He clenched his fist.
Frank: (The National Racing Championship will start in less than a week.)
(In any case, I must be in the top three.)
(The prize is enough for the whole family to live for many years.)
(Maybe I shouldn't have had a relationship with them.)
Current development progress
To be honest, I haven't done much about the game in the past two weeks. I personally think that Reflective Journal should be completed before I can concentrate more on the game. The current progress is 850-word at the first essay.
Before prototyping, I'll finish the story at the first (including all character dialogues and scene switching,etc). For more details, please refer to the blog about the protagonist's story line on that posted on 16th. I prefer to write the story in Chinese rather than in English directly, and then translate them into English. Because this can make the dialogues between the characters more vivid, the emotions between people more easily accepted by the public, simply to increase the expression and make the plot more dramatic.
Old storyline (will not use)
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
