Tale of the Nightingale (GxB) WIP

#1 Post by Mickychi » Wed Aug 31, 2011 3:42 am

Hey this is a game I am making on the side of Demonic Harmony, to practice my writing and basically just improve with scripting in Ren'py.


Image

I made this logo in 20 to 25 minutes using photoshop (It is a little messy on the left side) also credit to
RuneNeko for the feather brushes
and =Falln-Stock for the cage brush and the bird brush
(they are both on DA)


Summary:

You are needed to help the Nightingale, for the story that is known today is a lie! Be her guardian and help her make decisions that can change her true story to one that is more pleasant than tragic.

In this game you act as a guardian of the Nightingale and help her make decisions to change her fate. You will see what she sees, hear what she hears, and know her thoughts as if they were your own.


Characters:

Nightingale (Gale):
The main character of the story and also whose guardian you are, she gets transformed into a human and escapes the grasp of the obsessive King, but loses her memory due to trauma. She is then called Gale and adapts to working for the kind woman who saved her from a fire. Depending on what routes you choose to take in the game will affect if she regains her memories and what type of ending she has.


Obtainable characters:

Fraycious Avon:
A noble who woman are drawn to thanks to his wealth and looks, he is a kind man underneath his outside attitude but he will only show you that side of him if you are his friend.


Peter Evangels:
A commoner who works as a farmer on his father's farm, he is kind, friendly and just loves to have a good time.


Mark Grant:
The local village apprentice craftsman. He is kind and appreciates anything that is crafted he can be in his own world sometimes though.


Other characters:

The King (Name not decided yet):
The ruler of the Kingdom that the game takes’ place in. He is an obsessive man that has too much pride. He uses his power to suit his purposes when he wants.


Evangeline Bell:
The woman who saved the Nightingale from the fire, she is kind and wise but can be stubborn when someone is doing something she does not like or approves of. She gives the Nightingale the name Gale due to hearing it when she is sleeping after she saved her.


Sophia Roven:
The daughter of a well-known noble, she is constantly trying to get Fraycious to notice her. Watch out for her when you’re around Fraycious.


I plan to make this story a bit dark, but it depends on what routes you take in the game that will change the ending. Anyway tell me what you think of the idea!
