I've been working on a visual novel with the Ren Py engine for quite some time now. Here's a preview of the character art.
A demo will be available this year, in the mean time I'll update this thread when new info is made available. Our teams name is Chimera btw.
The concept of Lucifer was made to be evil, yet no one has ever had a chance to ask him whether he thinks himself as evil. System of Paradise is simply a re imagining of Lucifer's fall from Grace. Think Paradise Lost just with more of a twist. There are no choices in the game its just straight read, it is split between the perspective of the main characters Lucifer and Gabriel.
Info: God, the creator, it is said that this entity possesses limitless power. In the beginning God Created Heaven and Earth, Earth is a giant sphere of water while Heaven is a realm given form to house the first creations, Angels.
LUCIFER: Angel of Truth
Info: Lucifer is known to be one of Gods most powerful and beautiful angelic creations. He is an Arch Angel, but is classified as a prince amongst all angels, giving him more authority than God’s most trusted Seraphim. He joins Michael’s army out of curiosity and becomes one of his disciples. Lucifer is the Angel of Truth; in the beginning his loyalty to God is solid, but as the story progresses you begin to see him question the creator’s status and power, deeming some of its actions irrational. With Truth there is trust, the more Lucifer investigates the creator’s lies, the more his feelings of betrayal grow. Lucifer with the aid his close friend Zabiel will stop at nothing until all questions are answered.
GABRIEL: Angel of Redemption
Info: Gabriel is one of the three archangel leaders of the infiltration squad; they are in charge of investigating and excavating the unknown plains known as the Netherworld. He is under the direct command of Samael, and must report all findings to him. Gabriel is the Angel of Redemption; Gabriel has little understanding of what this could signify just yet. He does not question authority or the will of God, he’ll go as far as to explore the unknown, and enjoys any task he is assigned. He is usually accompanied by Uriel and Raphael on his ventures. Gabriel finds the Netherworld empty, and believes it will eventually become a place Angels can call a new home. Eager to discover new terrain Gabriel digs deeper; her squad knowing little of what may await them on the lower levels.
AZRAEL: Angel of Destruction
Info: Azrael is one of Heaven’s most powerful and skilled soldiers. His main task is to be the first line of defense placed in Heaven’s Gate; he is also the captain also Laveel’s army. Azriel has an attraction to Gabriel, they usually meet each other near Eden or while he’s delivering messages. His problem is that Gabriel gives more attention to Lucifer, and so does everyone else. To Azrael, Lucifer is just a snobbish prince who shouldn’t even be wielding a Principality. Even though Azrael manages to best him in combat, Lucifer receives all the praise, leaving Azrael bitter. A rivalry is formed between them, and although it seems all in good sport at first, the emotions Azrael is harboring take deeper shape as the relationship grows. Even if he is seen as a champion and protector by the angels, he is not satisfied with this, he wants more… “What if Lucifer was gone?”
ZABIEL: Angel of Peace
Info: Zabiel is a chief Power in Michael’s army. When Lucifer decides to join the military ranks, Michael entrust Lucifer in Zabiel’s care. It is not long before Lucifer and Zabiel become good friends, they share their interpretation of peace, to find that they are both quite similar “In TRUTH there is PEACE” This harmony allows them to see eye to eye, even in the irrational situations. Zabiel has the ability to sense intention and disruption, because of this he stays by Lucifer’s side even after he begins to deviate from the path of God. He is able to sense that Lucifer’s actions are of good nature, but at times deciding whether to let his friend continue with his actions puts him in difficult situations.
CAMAEL: Angel of War
Info:Camael is a Chief power in Laveel’s unit. He manages the training routines among the other Powers, and makes sure that each of them is in top form. At first glance Camael can come off as cocky, loud and proud, but after spending time with him, you’ll soon realize that there is a strong backbone to his personality. While he is indeed mischievous Camael’s are good in nature, he’s just looking to have a little fun. Azrael is more serious and does not share his sense of humor, but they still get along really well. Camael also does well in keeping the squad in high spirits, and getting them riled up before battle. As ambitious as Camael is in his pursuit for growth, the lack of any real threat hinders his progress. Nevertheless Camael trains vigorously with Azrael hoping that one day all his efforts pay off.
RAPHAEL: Angel of Healing
Info: Raphael is one of the three archangel leaders of the infiltration squad; they are in charge of investigating and excavating the unknown plains known as the Netherworld. Raphael is the angel of healing from the Phounebiel Dominion; he connects to those who are in pain, this pain ranging from emotional, mental and physical. Given the situation, Raphael can sooth your pain or completely heal you. Raphael is considered one of the friendliest Angels in Heaven, with a warm sense of humor.
URIEL: Angel of Liberation
Info: Uriel is one of the three archangel leaders of the infiltration squad; they are in charge of investigating and excavating the unknown plains known as the Netherworld. Samael entrusted him with the key that opens pathway to the Netherworld. Uriel has a unique ability that only Angels assigned in Marmaroth posses, it allows him to have long distance communication with other Angels, making him a perfect candidate for scouting. Uriel can come off a bit mysterious at times; you never know what he’s thinking or who he can be talking to. He usually tags along with Gabriel and Raphael. While he does enjoy their company, he can never be found hanging with them in Eden. Uriel has an aloof presence to him, but at times he can turn a 180 and become serious.
MICHAEL: Angel of Righteousness
Info: Michael is the Commander of Gods Army which protects 4th, 5th, and 6th Heaven. As commander, he guides his troops in the ways of discipline, and gives absolute orders. He concentrates on teaching defensive strategy. After Lucifer convinces Michael of his potential by taking on trials and proving himself, Michael allows Lucifer to join the ranks of his army. While he does see much promise in the prince of Angels, he feels there is something amiss with Lucifer. Nevertheless Michael trains Lucifer in the ways of combat; he also assigns him a partner in Zabiel. Michael is good friends with Commander Laveel and regards him with much respect as a comrade.
LAVEEL: Angel of Punishment
Info: Laveel is the Commander of Gods Army which protects 3rd, 2nd, and 1st Heaven. As a commander he keeps his troops organized, trained, Making sure they are always prepared in case of any attack. He concentrates on teaching offensive strategy. Laveel is good friends with Michael and regards him with much respect, but he finds more of a rivalry in who can perfect their soldiers. Laveel is beginning to show signs of concern regarding the use of his soldiers. Without any threat from enemies to test their skills and strategies against, he feels continuing such rigorous training is pointless. He sees potential in Lucifer and at times suggests he leave Michael’s ranks to join his superior army. For now, his sense of competition with Michael, helps push his limits, but how long will this last?
Info:Samael is an Archangel type, and the Director of Dominion. He administers Dominions to each Angel and assigns their location. Samael has a slippery presence to him and seems to possess a quick wit. His motions are sometimes extravagant, as he spontaneously bursts into what looks like a disco dance pattern. He is said to be the wisest of all The Watchers.
