Hey, so this is game I’ve been working on for quite a while now that I just can’t seem to let go off. It’s a high fantasy adventure that tries to weave a story of magic and mortals and gods and kings that places you as a character inside of that larger world. I’ve tried to provide as many opportunities as I can manage for you to shape and determine the nature and personality of your character along the way.
This demo covers the first chapter, which introduces you to the story, the world and the main characters as well as to the basic mechanics of the Dialogue and Personality system. I have more written, but I’ve been cleaning up my old code so i’ll update more as that finishes up.
The total word count for this first chapter sits at 20 000 words, but maybe half of that will be seen on an individual playthrough.
Our story begins 6 years after the Sundered War, a raging worldwide conflict of Gods and Mortals which scarred the earth. At its end an agreement was formed, the Rites of Unification which tied the Fourfold Nations as one, united that such a war may never happen again. You play as a young boy or a young girl in a town called Prairie with a father who died in the war as a conscripted soldier and a mother who spends her days waiting for a return that will never come.
But the world is still a fractured place. Peace might reign, but it settles uneasily and old wounds have yet to heal. Change is coming, and with change comes the price of death. Death of the old way as a new one enters, and a song that was once lost, sings a new tune.
