First of all hello members of the Choice of Games community my name is Zeta Voidis, though I don’t know why “_” seems to appear, but enough about that. After playing the many wonderful works of art on this website, I’ve decided to throw my gold into the fountain and try writing a game of my own. Now than since I’m unfamiliar with the program used to make these games it will be a while before I offer a link to the demo, but please tell me your honest opinion of the story idea I’m about to pitch, lest the criticism to follow breaks my unhardened spirit. Haha chocolate bar to anyone who gets that joke.
Getting to the point, Brave Breakers is a sci-fi game partially inspired by Mecha Ace set years into our future just after humanity had started to extend their reach into the stars by building several humungous space stations meant to serve as colonies for the future.
Ahem without further adieu here’s the official text trailer for the lack of video editing software for Brave Breakers
"The Year is 2336 AD. Through many technological innovations humanity has started to build a life for themselves in the stars finally relieving the planet Earth from centuries of overpopulation, and still… humanity has yet to come together as one.
150 years ago today there were only a few small scale colonies incapable curing the world of it’s overpopulation and the disease of resource deprivation, but now thanks to a technological innovation around the same time; not counting several smaller stations there are as many as 30 large scale colonies capable of hosting 1 million lives and thanks to deep space mining another 12 under construction. This created a massive economic boom allowing even the most barbaric of 3rd world nations to turn a profit. This supposed change for the better was the result of a revolutionary break through in construction technology.
That break through was the invention of the human piloted large scale construction mech the Breaker, of which was invented by Russian Engineer Zubarev Vitaya. This innovation single handedly restored the economic strength of Russia after the crippling sanctions imposed upon it due to the Ukraine Crisis years ago. Their pilots through a reason lost to history became known as “Braves”.
60 years later in 2246 AD as the 12th large scale colony was completed, the Russian government for the sake of peace bowed to international pressure and released to the nations that existed at the time blueprints guiding these powers onto how to construct Breaker Units of their own as well as how to train pilots to use them. The reason for that pressure was due to the overwhelming performance of the AGX-Z00A Berkut the first military grade Breaker in existence in putting down the rebels in the Russian Civil War that started 16 years ago and ended 5 years earlier as a result of this device. The Russian Prime Minister of the time knew that even though they had the immense power of this weapon, they would not stand a chance in a war where the entire world was their enemy.
As a result of the blueprints being released the nations of the world gathered together under two flags. The first and larger of the two was the United Earth Federation Government or UEFG for short. Their primary members lead by the US and Great Britain are of course the two aforementioned nations, Australia, Japan, all of the South African Nations, Canada, and Mexico.
The second power and also a surprisingly more democratic one than expected was the Orbital United Rebublic lead by Russia and France with their supporting members being nearly all of the middle eastern nations, former member nations of the Soviet Union, N/S Korea, China, and the Northern African nations. The remaining nations though they stand apart are neutral parties.
At first the relationship between these two power blocks were very cordial, but relationships grew strained as UEFG member nations called for the development of their own space capable Breaker units in response to the OUR being ahead in the development of space capable military vessels though they have less than a dozen proto-type ships in service in this modern age. They also made the call in order to put an end to the costly contracts with the OUR for the assistance in the construction of UEFG Space facilities.
On the OUR’s side resentment was directed towards the UEFG for forcing them to agree to unfavorable trade deals through what they called underhanded tactics. They are also demanding an end to what they claim to be inhuman conditions that their citizens have to work in for their contracts of assistance with the UEFG in regards the construction of their space facilities.
Make no mistake… War is coming, but it’s only a matter of time. Still there were two events in history that knocked over the first domino of battle. In 2310AD one of the neutral nations of the world revealed that Iceland a member nation of the OUR at the time violated several international treaties by engaging in highly illegal research into the development of super soldiers using test tube babies as well as kidnapped children from around the world. The facilities were shut down, the current Iceland government was deposed, and the nation was kicked out of the OUR.
The OUR government was innocent in this scandal as they never actually approved of such a research project nor did they know that Iceland was undertaking it, but the damage had been done to their image on the world stage. This caused a great deal of strife and resentment both internally and externally for the world power. Still… let’s just say there may have been members of the OUR military that copied Iceland’s research data as well as acquiring a few of the remaining test subjects for their own use, but that is a story that’ll be told another time.
The second incident and the actual power keg that led to war took place in November 2328 AD on Thanksgiving Day. In an attempt to ease tensions between these two powers representatives from the UEFG and OUR met for a peace conference in neutral territory.
You’re probably wondering what they talked about aren’t you? Well so is the rest of the world as 3 hours into the summit the entire meeting hall was destroyed in a massive explosion killing the representatives of the two powers as well as those of neutral nations and members of their entourage.
Both sides denied responsibility for this act of terror, and instead accused the other of being responsible. Perhaps one day history shall record the truth of this incident, but at that moment the military forces sent to guard the representatives of both powers instantly locked horns on the territory of a neutral nation.
From this moment the war had officially begun, and a few days later the UEFG were soundly defeated in the first battle of the war upon the land this neutral nation that wished to be a host to peace. The first battle came to be known as the Singapore Conflict.
8 years later in the modern date of 2336 AD the war still continues to rage on as both Global powers are locked in a stalemate. On one hand there is the superior resources of the UEFG, and the other hand there is the superior military technology of the OUR. Only time would tell if there would eventually be a one true victor.
You are an 18 year old Dale College Freshman and a citizen of the UEFG. You and the rest of your freshmen class are taking part in the opening ceremony of your school on the USS Historian an older generation BCV or Breaker Carrier Vessel in the UEFG capital city of London that has seen many an intense battle.
Your opening ceremony also coincides with a major UEFG holiday celebrating the foundation of your very government, of which is never complete without a ship (IE the one you’re on) sailing across the London Harbor 10:36AM in the morning every year
This was supposed to be the start of the rest of your life, but your entire world was turned upside down as the result of a surprise attack by an OUR force consisting of people you never thought you’d meet on your government’s most cherished of days. Like it or not the rest of your life starts with you being forced to fight for that very thing.
Will you survive until the war’s end? Will you be killed by a lucky shot? Will you become the leader that your fellow pilots need? Will you be the hero that your nation rallies around? Or instead will you be the fool that ensured it’s destruction? Is there any chance of love for you in this war-torn world? If so will it be your High School crush? Or maybe it’ll be that person who never thought they’d see you again? Do you think it could even be that soldier that hates your guts?
Find out in the full release of Brave Breakers."
Wow…(takes a deep breath) that was a mouthful wasn’t it. First of all I apologize to those of you that were overwhelmed by the sheer amount of words in this promotional pitch of mine, but I felt that this level of detail was needed for you all to properly imagine the basis of story I wish to create… and perhaps one day the details of the story you wish to live.
Before you click on the link below I have 3 warnings to give you.
- This demo only consists of about half of chapter 1 of Brave Breakers
- If you’ll check your stats screen after making the first few choices in the game you’ll notice that they don’t increase or decrease. This is not an act of forgetfulness. I haven’t put in any + or - values because this demo plot wise isn’t near the point where stat checks come into play.
- This demo does not contain a codex for what’s going on in the universe of this story. I plan to add one in a later update to the demo, but for now after I make this edit I’ll post a temporary codex here.

Please let me know your honest opinion of what you see so far from the plot, to coding issues that come up, and right down to the grammar. I’ll be sure to correct it as soon as possible.
Note: Post 16 on this page contains a small portion of the codex that’ll be put into the completed version of Brave Breakers
