Sentinel (Complete Demo 17/04/2020)

Haha I found it again, didn’t help that I forgot title, wow the way you describe scenes and events drew me back in again, look forward to release, I assume when you say complete demo there will be no more added to this, or will you still make edits?

Thank you! I’ll probably be making minor tweaks to it until the full game is released, if I’m honest with myself, but that’ll be bugfixes and spellchecking/typos, consistency stuff etc. All the content is now there, I won’t be adding any further chapters to it.

Wow! This was really great, like I’m genuinely finding myself looking forward to playing the full thing. Guess all I can do now is wait, and hope that I won’t lose my mind from the waiting before the actual thing is released :joy:

Wow, this was really great!

But after reading the demo, I’m kinda torn between ‘too short it’s confusing’ and ‘too short it was an awesome teaser’.

I mean, I get that you want things to be mysterious (and they definitely are!), but I’ve read a few published games recently that were so concerned about setting up a sequel they forgot to give us a satisfying game. Haha

Still, this was a great demo. Major props to you. :grin:

Thank you! fingers crossed, the wait won’t be too tortuous!

see, this is interesting because I feel like like it’s pretty long for a demo? and while I realise there’s not a huge amount of setup in terms of plot, there are several routes, a couple of which will give far more information about the direction of the story. Sentinel is very much designed as a standalone story (never say never, but I prefer writing standalones) and I’m predicting that it’s going to end up being quite long, and hopefully satisfying - but as a result, certain routes will be much slower-burn than others, hence the admittedly slightly odd pacing of the demo.

Thanks for reading, and thank you for your feedback!

While I’m here, for anyone who’s interested, Sentinel now has cover art! I’ll need to tweak the size of it when the time comes to submit, but for now, here it is.

Really liked the demo! :smiley::smiley:The story is mysterious so it picks my interest. If it’s possible can you give a description about the ROs?

https://nyehilismwriting.tumblr.com/post/188353771605 - at some point I’ll add these to the original post since this is the question I get asked most frequently lmao, will have to wait till I’m not at work though.

I’m not sure what you mean? The name ‘strigoi’ is from Romanian folklore, it’s a vampire-esque spirit and the reason I chose that name would be a spoiler but suffice to say, there is a reason. If you mean is the killer based on something irl or from a book the answer is no. If I’ve completely misunderstood you, just let me know, sorry!

your power varies depending on which skill is highest and on your introspective/reflective stat. where the power comes from is a spoiler that’ll be answered ingame :+1:
