Hello everyone I am back to share a new project entitled Jahari written exclusively in Choicescript.
Dreams are a large part of our nature as humans. Some people do not remember their dreams, most only remember them on occasion but the point is that we all dream, all the time. We rely on it, it keeps us sane. Like dreams, anyone can write a story. Some choose to share and others might choose not to. What we cannot choose is death. When it comes you go with it. With Jahari I drew inspiration from classic poetry and modern surrealist art. The goal was to have the waking world dance harmoniously with the unseen. To dance with the realities we can only experience, the indescribable. Ultimately, I wanted Jahari to be beautiful in its own respect. This interactive-fiction game is a blend between what is real and what is not. Jahari is imaginative-fiction like all fiction.
You are an apparition. One who treks the sun and stars in search of whatever it is that completes you. The afterlife is not without its flaws though. The world you live in is somewhat of a blur. Clouds hover as close to the ground as dandelions do when blown too softly. But it is also a land where those well practiced in the arcane arts rule with the ability to force the landscape. Alas, you are no simple mage. This world willful dances to your touch. The world around you is alive but you are not. A world where the dead dwell endlessly in what feels like a dream.
Note: In regards to Epoch. That project is currently being rewritten and illustrated in html5 in a collaborative effort. With the surplus of games featured in the “steam-era” I felt the concept was tired. Eventually the thousands upon thousands of lines of code and notes began serving purposes outside of gaming. A fun fact though, if you choose to journey into the waking world in Jahari, you are essentially visiting the timeline Epoch took place in with only slightly altered text and script. Even encountering the same characters featured in Epoch when it was still under Choicescript.
I figured, why let the html go to waste. Jahari is currently up all by itself at the old epoch site. This site is temporary but functional. Please feel free to report any bugs and typos you may come across. Also this particular build is much less technical in terms of additional programming.
This release is meant to serve only as very brief look into the world I am (you will be) building. Enjoy and thanks!
