Hey everyone, I’m new here but I’d thought I’d ask your guys opinion on the game I’ve started work on. Essentially its going to be Beowulf, as in the poem, with you as Beowulf, but with fantasy, romance and other stuff thrown in too. It will be first person, with the main character’s gender being left up to the players choice, although each gender will have a slightly different experience.
Thinking of Respect, Magic, Determination and Warcraft as the four main skills. Respect will essentially function like persuasion, since the more people respect you the more likely they are to do as you say. Magic is obvious, but will, possibly, have the added angle of coming to an end, as monsters like Grendel die and the old religions are replace by Christianity. Determination will effect how much you can take and keep going, and even inspire others to do the same. Warcraft will simply be skill in combat.
It also will, again hopefully, be important for you to watch your relationship with other characters. Romances, friendships, alliances and other relationships will determine a good bit about how the game ends up.
I’ve got only the first tiny little bit of it, but I’m working on it, and if you guys are interested in a demo I’ll try to get one ready. Other than its extremely short length and bad current condition, I’m also not really sure how to post (Is that what you do? Get it on dropbox?) my game right now, so any help would be appreciated
Edit: new topic has gone up, with a link to a short, and still rather rough, demo.
