Hello! This is my first ever game and I am only in the design process of the story and types of decisions but I have enough to present the rough idea for the game.
Years into the future, humanity has reached the stars. We have prospered with nearly limitless boundaries to hold us back. At first humans kept their countries as individual superpowers, but as wars over what planets were closer to Earth as well as those with the most resources became more and more prevalent; humanity needed a leader to unite them. One such man united the warring people of the galaxy into the Regency of Sovereign Systems after the bloodiest war humanity has ever experienced. Thus the Absolute Reign of the Monarchy began and unprecedented peace and prosperity followed after the Galactic Reconstruction.
Until we met them…
The aliens shocked us to our very core. We were the only intelligent life in the galaxy. Or so we thought. All those years of humanity’s infighting made us strong and ready. The Hieralts were roughly on par with humanity; any war would have been bloody beyond belief especially with the last Great War so fresh in our memory. We reached out our hand for peace. We received a punch instead. War erupted again. No side won. No side gained. Both lost so much that a peace was sought for the survival of each race. That was humanity’s new huge step and a crucial reason why the Regency held together. That war was 150 years ago.
Since then the politics of the planets near the Domain of the Hieralts grew increasingly upset due to piracy on both sides. The Regency at the time was unable to keep the Fringe supplied for the raids. The territorial governor was lacking strength to deal with the threat and was eliminated by a powerful local general. Seeing that there was no help from the RSS, the general assumed command and broke command chain to defend and repeal invaders. People joined up with him because he got the job done. Almost overnight, the United Provincial Territories was formed. That was 23 years ago.
Now its your life in the Regency. Will you save it? To save it would you ally with your treacherous human brothers or the mysterious aliens? Find love, adventure, and intrigue in this futuristic story where your choices matter and many are not cut and dry.
I would appreciate any feedback and if my summary is too long or not enough, by all means ask away! I hope you all look forward to this!!
