A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Simulacrum Duorum Graduis ~ Dragonfire is a hybrid dating sim / pseudo-rpg set twenty minutes into the future. A large part of the game involves balancing your relationships and daily life with success in the popular VR MMO, Dragonfire Online.

It's 2024, and gaming has been revolutionized by the new high-quality VR gear. You play as a gamer who has recently gotten addicted to Dragonfire Online, captivated by a mysterious new player who joined your group a few weeks back. Only problem is, you already have a girlfriend, and she isn't too happy about getting ignored! All is not as it seems, however, and as the world you knew starts crumbling around you, there's only one question demanding an answer: what will be your choice?

Nick is a hardcore gamer obsessed with virtual reality and the next-gen MMOs utilizing it. He seeks immersion at any cost, up to and including shady mail-order VR drugs. Recently, he's been neglecting his relationship with Catherine.

Old flame
Catherine is an MBA student whose relationship with Nick is nearing its breaking point as the pressure of writing her thesis and Nick's growing negligence combine explosively.

Nick's old tank had already reached the level cap by the time he stopped playing a year or two ago. Upon his return he discovered that the cap had been raised, so it's time to hit the dungeons!

Silvia is a mysterious new player who joined Nick's party a while back. Not only is she high-level and an apparent roleplayer, Nick suspects her of being a beta tester for the original version of Dragonfire Online.

Priestess of Phopassus, the Light of Mercy
Aerith is the de facto healer of Nick's party. She joined him shortly after he started playing, and seems to have a bit of a thing for him. Regrettably, she appears to be worse at the game than her level would indicate.
