Detached [v0.12.1] By Scruffles

Scruffles Games released a new game called Detached and the version is 0.12.1. The game’s story is about Welcome! I’m Scruffles, and I have a story to tell. Detached is a lewd psychological horror comedy dating sim that touches on mental health, illness, and spookiest. It follows the life of Daine, a 25-year-old man that is just discovering what it means to actually live, his road to recovery, and discovering himself. Of course, not everything is as it seems as there are many players out there, both in the Plane of the Mundane and the supernatural, pushing and prodding him down the gentle stream of fate. One of these players is you, the Hand of Fate.

As the Hand of Fate, you will help guild Daine through his daily life, choosing where he goes, and what girls he’ll visit to increase their affection towards him. Along the way, you’ll get to know their own stories and histories while the world’s mysteries unravel before you.

Developer Notes:

Detached is project that I never thought I would end up coming this far in making. I’ve been into writing and drawing since elementary school, drawing comics and writing short stories, and roleplaying forums were basically all staples of mine all through school.

A particular genre I’ve always been fascinated by is Fantasy. A dream of mine is authoring a series of Military Dark Fantasy novels based on a long running roleplay rich with lore I had amongst a group of friends through middle school. Something I actually started, but unfortunately sits shelved for the time being.

No matter what I’m doing though, whether it’s focusing on my art or my novel, I usually end up finding writing prompts and just throwing out a quick mini story here and there, or texting my friends with absurd imagery through words, all of which usually sit of the line of insanity and horror.

But then, I saw that there are people genuinely enjoy absurdist existential content like that. I’ve come across other games that aren’t afraid to tickle that horrible little corner of heavy story telling, that aren’t afraid to play with your emotions like some kind of sick and twisted pervert, that aren’t afraid to write a story that makes you feel conflicted on how you should feel about ejoying your time reading it.

So I thought, “Why not try and make something with this weird writing style I use to meme on people?” And thus began a project that I never thought I would make, and would never in a million years have thought I’d make it this far.
