Work stream is done for the day, woo.
The first interaction with the sister is complete. You have a few options for how to handle her. Some of those options have outcomes that drive her away, some keep her close for the time being, and some send her away only to have her come back, whether for good or for ill. And yes, you can tell her the truth if you want, but that might not be the best idea. After all, if Maria wasn't happy about you explaining everything to your mom, how do you think she'll react to telling your sister everything? Choices, choices...
More stuff from the comments:
- If you want to submit content, you don't need to have any kind of programming ability. You just need to indicate where and how the narrative branches (eg. "If you have the dominant trait, go to this part. If you have the submissive trait, go to that part") and send it in. There's no actual programming that can be done in advance, but since the writing is usually the longest part, having content written beforehand makes adding it in pretty easy. Usually.
- In regards to the Patreon goal for art, yes, I know it's $2,000 a month, and yes, I know that's a lot. It's high for a few reasons. First and foremost, Patreon won't actually let me set a goal that's not monthly, at least, not that I can see. Second, at that point, I would seriously consider doing Cursed (and other game development) full-time, so it's kind of an unspoken goal, mostly because I don't want to 100% commit to it at the moment. And finally, there would be a LOT of art to go into the game, so that goal would give me the ability to get a lot of it.
(Also, I honestly don't expect that goal to ever be reached, so...you know.)
