The gods are dead. Those that survived the world have fled, leaving humans to fend for themselves without protection. In their absence a great evil is rising, one that threatens to be worse than any trick Loki could have devised.
I’ve started an outline for a fantasy/adventure game based around Norse mythology and the aftermath of ragnarok. Ragnarok or “the twilight of the gods” is basically the Norse version of the apocalypse. Many of the gods die, the world is struck by natural disasters and flooded, and then is born anew with two human survivors left to populate the earth (Lif and Lithrasir).
In “Ragnarok” you play as a direct decendent of Lif and Lifrasir who is chosen by the surviving gods to combat a new, great evil that is rising. Right now there are two main endings but I plan to add at least two more. There will be romance options and character customization.
I’m a large fan of vikings and plan on studying them in further detail when I start my masters degree (hopefully in a couple of years) and I’ll be drawing on their culture, history and mythology heavily for this story.
I’m still learning the ins and outs of Choicescript but I hope to be able to start working on an introduction and first chapter soon (as soon as I’ve finished the outline, of course).
Please let me know what you think or if you have any ideas or things you would like to see!
EDIT (8/10/2017): For those who are interested in storyboarding!
Update 8/14/2017: Demo of intro and first chapter available on Dashingdon and will provide a link once I open a new thread exclusively for updates/feedback/testing/etc.
