Spiral Destiny [crisis survival VN]

#1 Post by sciencewarrior » Fri May 25, 2012 11:09 am

Spiral Destiny takes place in an Alternate History Bangkok. Ratana and her friends are shopping at a shopping complex when an earthquake and tsunami hits. The building is flooding and falling apart. They are all trapped inside the building waiting for rescue, but with such a large scaled tsunami, they aren't the only ones needing help...

It is told from the perspective of two victims trapped inside the building - Ratana, a young pessimistic college girl; and Satria, an elective medical student on international placement.
This version of the demo doesn't include voice acting. We had some communication problems, and several lines weren't recorded in time for the release. We will release a patch with the voices as soon as possible.

The main characters:

Ratana
The main character from the upcoming Gamelicious! Two years younger than in the main storyline, she is still equally short tempered and tomboyish. Even in this story, she is already an EKO fan.

Satria
An Indonesian elective medical student doing his selective module in Thai. He is very passionate about his chosen career, with a natural helpful personality to boost. He tends to be childish and ignorant of how his childish behaviours tend to attract unwanted attention...

Eun
One of Ratana's best friends. She's half American. She's also happy-go-lucky, fashionable, pretty and knows she's pretty. She tends to rely a lot of Ratana and Kanya but is fiercely loyal to them.

Kanya
Another of Ratana's best friend, and Eun's cousin. She's the matured and motherly one of the three. She's also a long time volunteer with St John's Ambulance, and a trained swimmer.

Toa (bonus character)
The amazingly polite and efficient waiter. What could he possibly be hiding?

What to expect from the finished game:
  • a good mix of action and suspense
  • a challenging game, with meaningful, life-or-death choices
  • several endings, including unlockable secret endings
  • high quality CGs and animation
  • inventory system
  • even more polished UI
  • a full OST with theme songs
  • voice acting
  • no trollfaces at all
As you can see, what started as a NaNoRenO project spiraled out of control (if you'll excuse the pun,) so we are creating a new WiP thread to receive your comments and keep you updated. And here goes a huge thank you to all the people here that donated to the game's campaign on indiegogo.

Hi, azure, thanks for the interest. This is a free game, but we are aiming for professional quality. (as in, "I could charge for this if I wanted")

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys!

Anyway, great news - we've secured a great writer for the game! CGs and animations are completed too! Things should be moving on much faster now!

Introducing our writer - Yvonne Foong, a mentee of John Ling, suspense and thriller novelist :)

Yvonne has read through current works, and made lots of good suggestions and revamping the works. You can rest assured the writing and pacing will be MUCH better than the demo! We might also be adding more CGs and animations to keep up with the new writings! :)

Okay I am playing the demo, and I've got to say, Ratana's voice actress is really nice.

This game looks really good, professional quality level indeed!
And nice story plot too. I like how it's not a cliché topic, and how the characters have interesting personalities.

I wish you guys the best of luck! :D
