Okay so this game is something I have been tinkering with for months now. Beast Within was initially just a practice run to see if this level of customization was enough to handle or not, and I have learnt allot from that project along the way.
Anyways, this is more of an interest Check before I start posting anything drastic, because I have two months of nothingness ahead and want to see if this would be worth wasting it. So, yeah…I’ll be doing this project anyway but if your interested I will crack down on it hard now.
The story is linked to the idea of perspective shifting within a game, but is tailored so that if you don’t like it, you don’t have to experience it at all. It also has set, playable characters with their own stories that intertwined along with each other, whilst allowing the player to completely vamp up their own in a more adventurous way than Beast Within does. And whilst I’m at it I’m porting the unseen Open World System from Beast into this one swell but you probably don’t care for that anyway. See why this is something I want to have an interest Check for? XD
Onto the story itself! I’ll admit, dependant on which one you choose (Hint), you’ll discover dark, tragic tales. I’m planning for this to be serious, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be any humorous characters at all! The main background focuses on an old divide in the world between the leading factions. One of the factions leaders, Vancia, grows tired of the constant fighting and sets his eyes on creating his own, peaceful world; a Paradise just for him.
The creator of worlds however, The great beast Devolex, envied Vancia, as he believed himself to be the one and true creator of worlds. Cunningly, he punished the Lord with a gift. Not a curse, but a wondrous gift: Magic. But this wasn’t any magic that was conceived upon the lands. The power varied, and for Vancia his power was the one to which spread the magic to others. Soon, his faction had gained various, dangerous powers.
Overrun by greed and power, the faction tore itself apart and raged war across the lands. But for Vancia however, he only had one goal: To continue his creation of Paradise. Whilst blood was shed, magic and none, Vancia had forged a city known as the city of Time. (Totally wasn’t supposed to be my CScomp Entry before I pulled out xD)
Enraged by the magical city that had the power to bend time at its will, Devolex destroyed the city, sending it into a paradox of its own doing. He then came from the skies and stopped the war that raged the planet, offering the people a prophecy. One which would lead to their ultimate punishment. Those with magic fled, fearing they would harm those without it, and remained hidden for thousands of years.
Until the 17th century in Austria-Hungary, when the first community of these people were publicly announced. They were known as the Varaz, Hungarian for magic (Varazslat). The next major appearances happened that same decade in Ireland, where it was said that the normal people were to be named Gnath, the Irish Gaelic for normal. Then on, around the globe, new instances of Varaz were discovered.
They were treated as equal for a long time, until the world finally began to crumble. The apocalypse, the end of the world, was upon us, and the Varaz were the ones to blame.
The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the Varaz are being hunted down and exterminated by Gnath, and Varaz, known as Hunters. You take the role of various Varaz, Gnath and Hunters in this fight for survival in a dying world, where a search for a forgotten paradise may be the only ticket out. And you can create your own character, just if your like: I don’t like these 20 characters that come default!
Anyways, I really don’t want to drabble on forever as I don’t know if anyone is even interested, but if you are let me know and ill go into detail about the planned characters I’ve already fleshed out!
