There’d been a recent trend of game companies embracing the mobile gaming market, and now it was Fortuna’s turn.

No it wasn’t necessarily a new game, but you were still excited. A port could mean new modes, new easter eggs, exclusive content! In making the port, the developers could have coded in any number of changes.

There wasn’t much information leading up to the app’s release, but you just took that as a sign that there was a surprise in store.

So enough waiting— who were you to say no to a surprise?

You open the app and the adventure begins.

...?

Is this a joke?

You know five dollars for a game isn’t outrageous, but you would have prefered to know what you were getting into. Back when you were downloading it, the app said F2P. Five dollars, last time you checked, was not “free”.

Begrudgingly, you make the payment.

That’s more like it!

Even though you’ve played the PC version of Fortuna before, you head to the tutorial. A new download means mandatory tutorial anyway, so you might as well review mechanics and get a hang of the layout.

The adventure begins, for real, now!

[Title Card, Chapter 1: Launch]
[An app with the Fortuna logo is downloading onto a phone]
[The app finishes downloading]

Player
There’d been a recent trend of game companies embracing the mobile gaming market, and now it was Fortuna’s turn.

No it wasn’t necessarily a new game, but you were still excited. A port could mean new modes, new easter eggs, exclusive content! In making the port, the developers could have coded in any number of changes.

There wasn’t much information leading up to the app’s release, but you just took that as a sign that there was a surprise in store.

So enough waiting— who were you to say no to a surprise?

You open the app and the adventure begins.

[The fortuna menu is on screen. The only option is “start”]
[A popup appears, “CONFIRM: Do you want to purchase the [Start Function] for $4.99? [Yes] [No]”]

Player
...?

Is this a joke?

You know five dollars for a game isn’t outrageous, but you would have prefered to know what you were getting into. Back when you were downloading it, the app said F2P. Five dollars, last time you checked, was not “free”.

Begrudgingly, you make the payment.

[The popup now reads, “Thank you!”]
[The fortuna menu now has the options “Tutorial”, “New Game”, “Settings”, “Cosmosdex”, “Achievements”, and “Store”]

Player
That’s more like it!

Even though you’ve played the PC version of Fortuna before, you head to the tutorial. A new download means mandatory tutorial anyway, so you might as well review mechanics and get a hang of the layout.

The adventure begins, for real, now!

[Loading screen, tip reads, “Don’t take candy from strange robots. Robots cannot eat. If they are in possession of candy, gently turn them to the nearest workshop to get their essential resource values checked.”]
[Black screen fades to the outline of a Hermes-like shape]

???
Greetings, player. Before you awaits a perilous journey.

??? (Bobbing up and down)
But fear not!

[Lights flash on. The shape is revealed to be a hand holding onto a sign that reads, “Down Here ↓”]

???
Your guide is here

[Screen pans downwards. The hand was attached to a little hooded robot with red eyes]
[MUSIC LINK: Animal Crossing City Folk OST — 6PM (Normal)]

??? (Raised eyebrows)
You’ll have to excuse the camera. I think it’s still trying to make up for quite a few extra feet of neck…
[The figure let’s out a short chuckle]

??? (Looks upwards)
I’ll just cut to the chase. Welcome to Fortuna: Tele-Trek™. Are you already familiar with Fortuna? [Yes] [No]

Player
You select [Yes].

???


??? (Relieved)
[The figure sighs]
Oh thank gods. I was afraid I’d need to spend hours explaining the game in-depth to you.

??? (Raised eyebrows)
Well, not that going in blind is a bad thing, but familiarity saves time.

??? (Looks upwards)
Let’s start your playthrough with character creation!

??? (Walking towards the back of the screen)
In the tutorial your ship is pre-chosen and your crew members will be randomly generated.

??? (Opening a back door)
But you’ll still get to add your own personal touch one way or another.

??? (Enters the doorway and closes the door)
[Whatever the voice says next is muffled behind the wall]
MMnnghmmm Mnnghghnmm mmm mhmm.

[Loading screen, tip reads, “Remember to freely enter NPCs’ houses. You never know what you might learn.”]
[The character creation menu is on screen]
[The figure appears on the right, outside the screen]

???
Behold your fresh meat, player.

??? (Raised eyebrows, waiting patiently)
Please fill in any blank spots you see.

Quinn was enamored by stories of Fortuna from a young age, as were most members of their family.

Character 1
- Piscipleu
- [Energizer] : By some means, whether by speech, yelling, or just about anything else, this character can cause their whole crew’s morale to increase and for a few moments after the ability is activated the whole crew will be able to ignore any negative buffs, injuries, and pain.

Character 2
- No idea
- She
- A loaded gun
- 2 Green Traits
- When she came to the job interview she told the crew that she had a loaded gun. She was instantly hired, after all the job was for guard duty.

Character 3
- Notail but only because he'll have to be an H-class.
- [Bad boy] [Notail]: They're a notail and that's basically a red trait.
- Lazyness traps me so lets go with the stats on here.
- Kicked out for tomato crimes. Not kicked out from notail society just kicked out of his last crew.

Character 4
- Oh my goodness
- I have nothing to say other than I love her.

Marcel Parr just... came with the ship. Crew found him locked in a closet, waiting for new orders. Bit unnerving, but is a surprisingly good conversationalist. Marcell Par might not actually be their name, but its the one they respond to. (And it was on their nametag.)

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

Character 1
Species: Spiraji
Trait: Definitely [Energizer]

Character 2
Name: Bubby Hanzi
Pronouns: She
Job: Entertainer
Green Traits: [Pack Mule], [Respectful]
Bio: Played for the Ripped Riperstons, a popular baseball team, before getting kicked off because of her inflated ego. Now she's a street artist that wows the crowd by carrying way more than she's supposed to be able to.

Character 3
Species: Definitely a Notail
Red Traits: [Addict], [Easily Stressed]
Bio: Nobody really knows how long he's been stuck in the ship's closet. It's pretty much the only thing he refuses to talk about.

Character 4
Bio: She used to be a nuclear weapon's engineer, but after witnessing the horrible atrocities her weapons have been used for, she quit her job to become a medical engineer/scientist. Her former peers are always ready to hear back from her though.

I have no son.

Character 4

Name: GUCCI (the caps are very necessary)
Bio: Got kicked out of 3 crews for not actually fixing any issue on the ship, but instead dabs violently on machinery with all 8 limbs. She killed 3 people once for dabbing near a group of notails.
She does not know why she got hired, people still question if she's actually an engineer.
