A Thief's Tale [GxB][Fantasy][Adventure][Romance] Demo-7/27

#1 Post by candichan06 » Mon Jun 08, 2015 2:11 pm

The setting for this story is the world of Almerra, a large continent half covered in a vast forest inhabited by all sorts of dangerous beasts.
For this reason, most people stay well away from the woods.
A demonic race known as Wildlings were also said to live within the woods many centuries ago but most people believe that they've long since gone extinct, if they even existed at all.

Our story begins with Dina, a girl who is working as a servant at the Almerran royal palace on the eve of the youngest prince's birthday.
While everyone else is busy celebrating, her goal is to sneak into the royal treasury and make off with all the riches she can carry.
Unfortunately, a ghostly encounter ruins her plans and she winds up arrested for attempted assassination.
The only chance for her to get her normal life back is to join a knight on a quest deep into the woods, but will she survive the journey?

***Main Characters***

Image
Dina Dryden: Our 19 year old protagonist who gets by on her wits and smarts.
Usually carries a pair of daggers for protection and dresses like a boy to avoid unwanted attention.
Crude, snarky, stubborn and slow to trust, she can be a handful but she's loyal to those she calls friend.

Image
Tobias Ostler: A 24 year old royal knight who takes his duty to his kingdom seriously.
Staunchly loyal, he dares to brave the dangerous woods bordering Almerra for the sake of his
kingdom...although the real test may be the stubborn girl he's forced to travel with.

Image
Frost: A Wildling who lives in the forest bordering Almerra. 21 in human years.
Very inquisitive about humans, because he doesn't know much about them.
Skilled in water magic, specifically in the form of ice. Open, honest, and playful personality.

Image
Prince Kieran: The youngest Almerran prince, barely 18.
Outwardly, he's everything a proper prince should be, but what lies underneath that facade?

***

It's still very much a work in progress, but a demo is planned to come out in July. Here is a screenshot of our current main menu screen:

Hi~ I just wanted to say congrats on the project :D it looks really good even though it's in progress.

1. Yes the story does interest me already, I love adventure games; and yes I would enjoy to play this game very much! :)

2. I like Dina, you do not see many protagonists these days that are not girly and are not the typical "damsel in distress". And I like all the love interests but my favorite would have to be Prince Kieran and that is because he has a mystery to him and I love mysteries.

Good luck on the game! I shall be stalking this now~~

Oh wow this looks fun!
1) yes! the story does interest me! Though it makes me wonder how going on a quest nullifies the crime you committed, but that's probably explained in the game, huh?
2) They look like heaps of fun! Dina's personality sounds like a nice change of pace for once. The men seem great characters too, I really wonder how the Prince will turn out!

Oh, but I do think you should go with a softer shade of green for Frost's sprite to match the rest of the art though.

Good luck on the game, I'll keep a close eye for more updates :D

Thank you very much for pointing that out! I will adjust it so it goes well with the other sprites (:

Thanks for all the kind words and compliments! We will do our best to make it awesome, though it will probably take a while because it's our first time doing a serious VN. Already so much love for our Prince! :D

Yeah, I agree that we could use more independent protagonists. Also, your stalking is most welcome! :D

Thanks! Please be patient with us though, as we are new at this and progress may be slow ^^;

@qeedy

Dina doesn't become a knight, she just gets stuck with one over the course of the story. Just want to make sure there's not a misunderstanding! :) Thanks for your interest!

Very much so! I'm always up for fantasy games, even more so with a premise as interesting as the one you have :D

2. What do you think of the characters so far?
I'm liking them, their designs and their profiles.

Looking forward to seeing more updates on this! :)
