Prompt: A story set in the Wild West. (Weird West Optional)
This game is not made with love. It is made with pure spite.
However, in my blind stubbornness, I got a little too ambitious compared to my actual writing skill, so the game is only half finished. But I will update the game still.
Thanks for reading.
Noir story in a cyberpunk dystopia. Four types of endings: deaths, bad endings, good endings, and one perfect ending. See if you can find them all, it shouldn't be too hard. Endings are tracked using the score variable: zero means death, one means bad, two means good, three means perfect.
Special thanks to:
Tim36D - For listening to me ramble on about the idea, making suggestions, and writing a few pages.
ISentinelPenguinI - For playtesting.
Finally, if you notice any bugs, please PM me and I'll get to work on them as soon as I can (though I do believe they've all been worked out, can never be too sure).

This is exactly why Sent is an obvious pick for the rebuild phase of the apocalypse.
Nobody can match his planning and detail when it comes to building safe environments. The pizza oven is in SUCH a strategic location, I thought it would just be covered by one vantage. Clearly I lack the sheer brainpower to come up with such a blueprint.
The man even changed the meta entirely by bringing to light a PRE-BUNKER phase.
I'm glad that you exist, my friend.

Seeing as my previous answer sheet is now defunct due to irreconcilable issues, I will now update it. Please keep in mind that, while the skillsets of these people are optimal for post-apocalypse survival, I am not sure about the overall compatibility between them. Therefore, this ranking takes the liberty of believing everyone in the bunker will be cool and good to each other and we will all be friends.
I will still be keeping around Chris, miz, and Sent, for the same reasons as before. There's been some patch changes, but things have mostly stayed the same. Still pretty top-tier picks.
The first new pick for the vault will be Dark. From his extensive experience surviving the mean streets of Mexico, he will be a great help adapting to the hellscape that is the outside world. He's pretty much already living in a post-apocalypse environment without the apocalypse. Likewise, from the injuries he's survived and told tales of, his constitution would be a great asset as well. It would also help to have someone that can speak spanish besides my own gringo-level knowledge. All in all, he's much like miz, only on the other side of the border. A possible downside is that he will not be able to bring his sister, but if he's resorted to bunking here, that's probably no longer an issue.
My other new pick is Malk. While we may disagree on some cultural aspects from time to time, Malk is definitely the pinnacle of warrior scholars. His vast knowledge of both the Islamic faith and various tactical maneuvers make him an excellent choice for both the Wasteland and Rebuild phases, especially when paired with Sent. He'd also pair well with Dark during the Bunker phase, since they'll both be partaking in some spiritual THC-assisted sessions of enlightenment.
Now, I know what you're thinking.
Keep thoughts like that to yourself.
Anyway, here's a quick review of other good choices that I will not be taking, personally, but I understand if you do:
End. Great scholar, excellent leader, still not entirely convinced he won't just organize a hostile takeover when the time is right and go on to lead a Mad Max-esque raider nation.
Sabley. Great farmer, optimal for the rebuild phase, but now not only has a husband but also a child. Heck, they probably have their own bunker. Do not separate.
Corgi. Great for the Bunker phase and other general morale-boosting activities, but unfortunately has a designated naptime of which NONE may wake him. Not so great in an emergency situation.
MHD. Amazing artist, great for the Bunker phase morale and Rebuild phase propaganda, but due to the severe lack of both fancy hats and cool tea sets in the apocalypse, she might really go the "M" in "MHD".
Finally, I have come to realize that bringing ANY one of the three sisters without the other two as well as End would be a fatal mistake. They probably have their own happy little vault, anyway. DO NOT SEPARATE.
This is the new answer sheet. Again, keep in mind that my own assuredness in this list has been shattered, and I am no longer confident in my ability to pick optimal writing site members to survive the apocalypse with, even casting aside the fact that, hypothetically, I would probably be the last person anyone should pick in this scenario and nobody would want to be paired with an absolute clown such as myself.
You wouldn't think 3 years is enough to change things, but man...

I am glad that you have captured the ideal costume for everyone.
Thank you, MHD.
