Hey, y’all! I’ve been working on the demo for this game for a few months and I’ve finally reached a point where I believe I can share it with others. Right now the demo covers the full prologue. I have plans to update it in increments until at least the first chapter is included so that players have the chance to meet all of the main characters. Past that… I’m not sure yet! We’ll see how this goes.
Now, to get to the heart of the matter…
In the aftermath of a power grab of godly proportions, a young man receives a vision of trouble yet to come. His vision highlights six people, including himself, that will stand against this future darkness. Five of those six people are well-defined in his vision, their roles clear. And then there is the sixth person. The player, known as the Titan. They are the wild card that could make or break his plans. As he gathers the people from his vision and more details of just what “trouble” he has foreseen come to light, the Titan must decide on what side of the line they fall while also surviving tests set forth by the gods themselves in order to prepare them all for the battles to come.
The MC: You! For as long as you can remember, the gods have spoken to you. After the actions of the last titan, Marepose, you strongly suspect that the gods’ involvement in your life has mostly been an attempt to steer you towards a different path.
Clementine (they/them): Your friend and protector from childhood. Clem, as you’ve always called them, is the kindly, broad-shouldered, reliable sort whose cheeks old ladies want to pinch and from whose arms young children like to swing.
Casimir (he/him): Marepose’s son in name and tool in practice. As soon as his Cian-given powers of seeing into time manifested, he was just another pawn in their game. Now that they’re gone and he has grown, all he wants is to right their wrongs and perhaps, if possible, find out what it means to matter for who he is and not what he can do.
Mels (they/them): Mels is a relatively recent transplant from Cheyca to Glaisal, but it’s more than their starry-eyed wonder at this new world that puts a spring in their step. It’s almost as though they carry a piece of the sun in their soul, they shine so brightly. Mels is unfailingly cheerful and kind, making them particularly resilient after a fashion.
Penelope (she/her): Cas is the closest thing to family Penelope has after they both survived Marepose’s descent to madness and grandiose ambition. She is prickly and closed off, but her loyalty once earned is stronger than steel.
Sybille (she/her): Though she was born and raised in Efreyland, Sybille has been just about everywhere in the twin continents. She makes her living on the road, selling charms and trinkets at markets in all the most colorful and lively cities. Accompanied by her raven, Bijou, Sybille is never happier than when she’s on the move.
