The story takes place in a world of the same name. I plan to have the game be very unique in a lot of ways, especially in how the storyline progresses, how your choices are made and affect the world around you, along with character creation and evolution. In fact, you literally shape and dictate the appearance of your surroundings, though its not always clear when you do or how its done, least of all what the outcome will be. You are subject to creating your world just as much as your character. I really wish to emphasize the point that you -create- your story and world; not merely ‘choose’ them, like selecting food from a menu.
You literally start off as a blank slate. The MC has amnesia, and cannot recall anything about themselves. Past, present and future has become a distant idea, an unrelatable concept. They do know that, for some as of yet unknown reason, they have the ability to see and manipulate the psyches of others. Pieces of the psyche are represented by memories, as they are inherited from experiences, and our experiences shape us as individuals, hence making up multiple parts of our unique psyche. Memories in this world aren’t just idle thoughts that randomly pop up; they are complex, unique and artistic in design and are represented as such with their visual quality. They have emotional weight and a quality of power that doesn’t seem normal, and any alteration to their existence, or the addition / destruction of such, has an impact on the outside. Your character has turned up at just the right time it seems, as monstrous shadowy figures of an unknown, alien nature seem to possess similar abilities to your own, stealing and altering human memories, disrupting humanity’s ability to retain its independence as the alien creatures swarm over civilization. Sensing a connection between yourself and these beings due to your shared powers, you decide to take the fight to them, and hopefully learn something about your past - and even your future - from destroying these strange hostiles. And luckily for you, without memories of your own, their powers do not work on you. The question is, how alike are you really to these apparently evil monsters? And what other dangers do they hold, aside from their powers?
Do you want to find out? And if you do - can you survive the knowledge?
Feel free to tell me what you think! I’d love to hear it, or ideas. Anything.
