This project will have slow to now progress for about a year, due to me moving to the other side of the earth and studying Classical Animation for a year.
With that said, I will still keep my Tumblr/Twitter regularly updated with all kind of art things, however it may not be all Réadú related!
Rated M (16+) for some violence, sexual undertones and blood.
PROGRESS SO FAR
Cutscenes - 5%
Music/SFX- 0.5 %
I'll be making a demo version of the first chapter! I only have artwork left to make, so this might just get finished soon.
I am the artist and writer of the project, so this isn't anything I expect to finish soon. This is a Visual Novel that will be divided into three parts, each being based on an idea I had for a novel series. However, I decided to make a Visual Novel out of it, and each part is about five chapters each, resulting in each part being around 200 pages in book form.Modern day Sweden. Winter has just ended, but the air is still cold and non-welcoming to the people who live in it. In a seemingly desolate part of the city, Thea lives alone with her parents. In her eyes, the city she lives in is a comforting place, yet she still longs for some form of fulfillment in her everyday life. Even as she was born with a strange gift, she keeps this to herself due to the fear of becoming an outcast… Or so she thinks. She’d rather be left alone than to hang out with the people she sees every day in school. Her almost unhealthy obsession over the myth called Réadú takes up most of her days.
Until the day her closest friend dies.
In a shocking, bloody scenery, she sees her friend lying dead on the floor.
The day after, nobody knows of her friends’ existence.
She brings home a homeless man who doesn’t seem to know exactly where he is, or what he is doing.
Until Thea tells him about her friend, and that nobody seems to remember him. To her shock, he has an idea of what is going on, and decides to help her out – in exchange for assistance on a private matter he has. She shows him her abilities she possesses, and he proceeds to explain to her how important, yet curious her abilities are – and how both of them are connected to the Réadú.
This will have multiple endings based on choices you make in the game.
Because I don't want to spoil too much, I will not explain everything in detail, but feel free to ask questions and I'll try to answer them as best as I can!
-CHARACTERS-EXPLAINING THE RÉADÚ
The Réadú is a form of wish-granting source of power, where it all started with a man who simply wanted to share a miracle he one day stumbled across.
The rules are the following – If you have a wish, a dream or some sort of goal, the Réadú can help you grant this wish. Once you have that wish clear in your head, you will receive a Gift – a form of power that is connected to the wish you have. The Réadú doesn’t grant any wishes on its own – you have to fight for it to make it come true, and sacrifice some part of yourself as an offering.
Réadú has stayed a myth in the social media, but has been misused many times in the past. The ones who have their Gift usually hide, but don’t always know why.
To be able to receive any Gift though, you must have talked to OR seen someone who already bears theirs with them. Think of it as a ticket, once you have it you are able to receive your gift and start your adventure – but this is something many are not aware of, and thus, it’s seen as a myth, because nobody in public has used this. Once you have your gift, you don’t age at all until you have granted your wish, and when it is granted, your Gift will be gone and you will age as before.
