My name is Shehan and I’m new to the forum, first post and all, but I’ve been playing COG games for an year and a half or so. I’ve decided to write one myself. This is only my second attempt at writing anything longer than a school essay, so here’s to hoping that it will come out well.
Medieval Moments will be about a warrior who starts his journey in a small village in late 14th or early 15th century England. The direction of the game is still not completely thought out, but will mostly include actual historical events (battles mostly), slightly changed to portray the game’s features (and you will be able to change them according to your choices).
I plan to make the game mostly non linear, and players will have realistic choices for each event. I wish to make it an accurate depiction (as much as I can) of the time period. Sorry fans of the fantasy genre, but it will not have elves or dwarves or dragons. That means no magic either. Hope you will still like it though.
I am a little wary of adding the church into the game since many of the non Christians can be offended. Since I’m not Christian myself, I cannot guarantee an accurate depiction of the Roman Catholic church of the time period either, but I’m also loath to remove it as well since it was a great player in state politics and everyday lives. I hope to discuss that topic later in detail and see the feedback.
Oh and for female players; Ladies, there might be teeeeeeeny amount of sexism coming from NPC’s within the game. I assure you that I am not sexist and hope that my addition of a female character playthrough is proof of that. If you want I can remove those bits, but it will remove the immersion I think. Also male and female playthroughs will be slightly different in many aspects.
In its current state the game cannot be called a demo. Maybe half a demo since entire parts are still incomplete but it will offer an understanding of what the completed game will be like.
All feedback is appreciated but it would be better if grammar and spellings are not commented upon yet. When I get an idea, I tend to write fast and not think about the grammar much. I will correct them when I rewrite entire parts later on as I plan to do. For now, it would be much appreciated if you guys comment on bugs, balance issues, historical fact issues and suggestions.
