I’ve begun work on my first game, The Realm of Steel (working title). In it, you play a knight who has lost everything. His home, his friends, his family… and maybe himself. But somewhere within him burns the desire for more… to give power to the oppressed and unify The Realm of Steel!
There are many ways to unification: Will you stay true to your roots and win the throne through honorable combat? Or will you turn your back on your morals and build a League of Assassins, eliminating both public and private enemies? Or maybe you just want to win yourself a castle and retire to the manor life. Then again, that is not what the voices want you to do… The choice is yours!
Currently it’s about 3% done, 10,000 words, and I plan on updating every week.

Things I plan to add in the near future:
-Add approximately 8-10 thousand more words to prologue
-Continue to enhance character customization
-Add stats adjustments to choices
-add additional choices to bandits and library scene
-tweak dialogue to make it seem like MC is being trained, not just an invincible 14 year old
-deal with difficulty settings (add variable changes)
-9/11/2020 First demo released
-9/12/20 Working stats screen now,both gender and various stats work now, fixed typos, a few more choices added as well (at the beginning updates will be quick and small, but will eventually come as larger, slower updates)
-9/13/2020 Revamped stats screen, added inventory and more goodies. Much more story now, more options, more branches. Wait… did I just die. Yep. You can die now. Plus, the first puzzle! Good luck Steel Brothers!
-9/14/2020 Additional character customization added. Gender choice is updated and fully functional. Additional choices written. Several hidden goodies. (Note: none of this will appear in the demo yet, as I am waiting to update the link until after I finish writing the prologue)
-9/16/20 More backstory created. Gender choice implemented. Character design implemented. Relationships in stats screen implemented. Lore implemented. Typos, bugs, miscellaneous fixed.Another 1,500 words (including code) added.
-9/20/20 Another 3000 words added. Bandit scene is mostly completed. Typos and bugs fixed. Added more to stats screen.
-9/21/20 Added a difficulty setting, which has effectively doubled my word count. Fixed various typos and bugs, reworked stats (again ugh). Changed MC’s age to 14, 8 was not working with the situation at hand. Rewrote the opening scene, removing future talk. Many, many changes added to easy mode.
-9/22/20 No update yet, but I added about 1000 words, mostly just extra choices in bandit battle. Fixed some stats. To small to garner a link update, so I didn’t.
Be mean in your comments! I want to make my game better, so give me some tough love!
To glorious victory or honorable death!
