3 Works in Niko's Mother (OneShot - Video Game)
24 Jul 2019
Ninety-six degrees. Twenty percent chance of precipitation. One ridiculous story.
Let's do this.
(UPDATE: Heart of the Summer is now complete! Tags have been updated accordingly. Thank you, everyone who took an interest in this funny idea I had.)
As a very exasperated ex-musician-turned-starving-artist, you often faced difficulties trying to make ends meet. Fleeing the monotonous drone of the suburbs into a quaint, idyllic little town nestled deep in the countryside, one thing leads to another before snowballing into something else entirely, and you soon fall seamlessly into the role as caretaker of your neighbor’s child, Niko.
Happiness comes in small packages, you learn with time, as Niko and their sunny radiance just may have been the inspiration you needed to not only mend your artistic slump, but fill your life with that much-needed bliss.
It's been nearly a year since Niko was finally able to return home, after a long journey which finally ended in them saving a world they weren't even from. Yet, even after so much time has passed, they still haven't forgotten the world they'd saved, and left behind. The God that they had befriended, and who they knew they'd likely never see again, as well as the many other friends they'd made along the way.
Fate is a fickle thing though, and while Niko believed that their journey ended there, with only memories remaining, they'd soon find that life tended to surprise you.
However, they need to be careful, for the rules haven't changed. They still only have one shot... But will it be enough?
