I’ve begun work on my new game Realm of the Stars. In it, you play as a peasant child in a medieval fantasy kingdom… although you won’t be a peasant for long, if all goes well. It’s kind of inspired by “The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante” in terms of tone and style.
In terms of the overall broad sweeps of what the game is planned to have:
-You can play as male or female, or change your sex with ancient magic
-You will fight in a provincial civil war, either on the side of the uprising peasants, or on the side of the nobles.
-You may choose to try to secede from the Realm or try to become monarch yourself
-You must save the Realm from a rising, hungry sea that will attempt to drown your entire continent.
-You may align yourself with various magical factions, including the official Star-worshipping religion, an enigmatic Cult with phoenix/fire powers, or the shapeshifters of the forest.
-You may potentially fulfil an ancient prophecy regarding an ice-dragon.
Potential Future Romantic Options:
-Hugo von Falkenhayn, the son of the Duke of the province you live in.
-Derik von Galishoff, the Crown Prince.
-Jaspis, an inquisitor of the Phoenix Cult.
-Matteo, a potential childhood friend of yours (although I might just have him be a platonic friend rather than a love interest)
-Lorienne, a noble heiress of the Southern provinces.
-Katua, a shapeshifter girl from the forest who can transform into a wolf.
-Brigitta, the daughter of an outlaw.

The demo is very short because I haven’t really gotten to the meat of it. It’s essentially just the first arc of your main character’s childhood.
Edit: I now have a stats screen, but tbh take all the stats with a grain of salt. I expect some will become irrelevant or merged as I keep working on this.
I’m releasing this really early demo because I wanted feedback about the concept and direction! But be gentle in your criticisms please because this is my first game. And let me know of any bugs!! I am nearly finished the next arc and will post it by end of this month.
