On Grey Wings [BxB, fantasy, adventure]

#1 Post by MiSi » Tue Aug 28, 2012 3:05 pm

Imagine, you suddenly were forced to live a life you never wanted to...

Image

Setting: Drakia & Candrama (in a somewhat medieval time), both countries on the planet Terrax which is inhabited only by fantastical beings. (Well, nearly all my stories take place there. So did I really have to write that? :D )
map2.png
The map of Drakia & Candrama
Plot: Jamie Strawford, member of Woodmoore's city guard, got imprisoned. Not for stealing, not for murder, not for any crime. But simply because he was transformed into a peeron. Now being one of the most feared creatures on Terrax he has to flee the pyre. With the help of some unexpected allies he eventually manages to reach the only place left for him to hide: The colony of the mountain peerons. Its leaders however demand that in one whole year he has to prove himself worthy as "real" peeron.
The search for a new home, saving the desert peerons from a terrible fate, and the war against the silver dragons will only be the main parts of his adventures. As his main task is to find his right place amongst the peerons, choosing between eight different professions and ten possible love interests...

About peerons: The peerons are a whole new race and possibly the creation I put the most effort into. I don't want to spoil anything here, since during the game all the facts about them can be discovered, but let's point out their most important characteristics.
1.: They hunt down elves, demons, gnomes, etc. in order to survive. So they are a threat to Terrax's inhabitants and extremely dangerous foes.
2.: They all are male (*surprise, surprise* :lol: ), but able to procreate. (Don't ask, how. Because that's one of the mysteries, Jamie is going to learn about :wink: )
3.: Their most feared weapon is the peeron spray which not only smells terrible but also causes anyone who swallows it to transform into a new peeron.
Well... I'm crazy. I know. :lol:

Yay, another BXB! (Though I'm sadly not a fantasy fan.)

3.: Their most feared weapon is the peeron spray which not only smells terrible but also causes anyone who swallows it to transform into a new peeron.

OMG. :shock:

To be honest: I knew this comment would appear sooner or later :lol: But you have to know that I used to write about gay skunks (no, really, no joke) until I thought: "What about making human-like creatures who have similar ability?"
Yeah, well, that's the result. But I'll try to handle this topic as carefully as I can, because I know very well that it is the greatest turnoff of the whole story.

And too bad that you don't like fantasy; it's my favourite genre. But we are not all alike, right? ;)

Oh I just added that but I wasn't clear. I was trying to say that if a game has BxB I'll check it out no matter what the genre. :lol:

No problem ^_^ and I'm looking forward to it. ;)
It's kinda hard to find interesting BxB games, and all the interesting looking ones seem to be in the WIP threads. Some of the lines could use a bit of cleaning up, but personally I'm loving the messy look. :D

Well, at first I thought I should hire an artist and only did coloured sketches. But then my sister said that she likes the sprites the way they are and so... I shaded and kept them :D
And it's nice to hear that there are others who like my messy art style ;)

The characters are unique to me, and I would like to know about 'that one mystery'

regarding the sprite, just wanna ask, are they having more than one stance or no?

Yes, yes... we all would like to know about "that one mystery", right? ;)
About the sprites: No, no different stances. It was difficult enough for me to draw them like they are now (actually I'm no artist ^^; for the CGs and facial expressions of the sprites I hope for my sister's assistance... if she's in the mood, that is :) )

From now on I think I will do a weekly update on progress.

Let's see what lint has to say ;)

Code: Select all

The game contains 224 screens of dialogue.
These screens contain a total of 3,417 words,
for an average of 15.3 words per screen.
The game contains 5 menus.
And so far I only used one background :D

Also I changed the GUI a bit. Now the boxes are nicer to look at I think.
