Good evening my fellow CoGgers.
So today is 1st November the month of the National Novel Writing Month. Well after seeing the topic go up about whether people are entering this year I decided that as the re-edits of UnNatural are done and the beta testing is going well. I decided to take a month break from writing in the Unnaturalverse so I don’t burn myself out.
So this gave me a month of free time, and alongside an interesting proof of concept I had from a scrapped idea for an Unnatural (scrapped as it didn’t fit the universe). I took a look at myself and thought why don’t I turn that idea into a short game as a proof of concept. So here is the intention for working on this project solely in November.
The working title is Daemonglass.
In this Urban Fantasy you play as a young seventeen year old who was born into one of several families of Enchanters, humans who can use runes to use nature’s energy/magic to combat evil creatures known as Daemons. Daemons however cannot be killed in the usual way, as any fatal wounds to their host simply send them back to the other side of the aether until they can reform and try and break through again.
To combat this runecraft was used to modify specially designed daemonglass spheres (known as daemonspheres) to seal daemons inside.
At the beginning of the story Daemons haven’t been seen for over a century, but that doesn’t stop your family from keeping on training you for when they obviously will return. (because if they didn’t the game could get boring!) well of course they come back at a certain point in the story and the player then has to catch them again.
You can play the initial first attempt at the character creation and world building here (just under 5000 words/code so far);
Comments as always is most welcome. I hope you enjoy this little fun project of mine.
edited to add; I’ve tried something different with this in regards the two main personal stats body and mind are given randomly between 5 and 15, this is to emulate the fact that people can be born with different constitutions not everyone will be born equal. to counter possible low scores you gain a boost elsewhere (in spirit and/or will). Don’t worry this will NEVER screw you over even if you get low scores in body AND mind as you’ll get a boost in spirit AND will which will balance things.
