Bog (GxB, Comedy, Fantasy, Tragedy) DEMO AVAILABLE

#1 Post by YourGeekGoddess » Sat Jun 11, 2016 8:02 pm

EDIT 2/15/17 Demo is available for download: https://bog.divinegames.studio/download

Hi everyone! I'm pleased to announce that project Bog is underway! This story is actually based on a nightmare I had a few years ago, but the story is actually mostly pleasant- oblivious to danger, even.

Synopsis:
Our heroine Lily is engaged to be wed to the powerful Julius Von Mugwort, as per her people's customs in the bog. Impulsively, she leaves him at the alter and breaks for the outside world.
"Humans are nice, right?"

The story takes place over five days, focusing on Lily's new life as Aura. Discover the simple things- the most beautiful.

Characters :
Lily/ Aura
15/f- main
Image
Aura is a rowdy and free spirit. She is a child who lives on impulse. People have a hard time keeping up with her, which makes Aura lonelier than she'd ever admit. Aura is flora, which means she needs protection to survive in the Bog. But what of the outside?
Julius Von Mugwort
(?)/m- primary antagonist
Image
No one knows his date of birth or when he rose to power and popularity. Julius is sociable, wealthy, and influential- every girl's dream. Julius was betrothed to young Aura, and will do anything to get her back alive.
Anthur Von Mugwort:
19/m- minor antagonist/ possible bachelor
Image
Julius' son. Sent to trail Aura after her escape. He has his own agenda.
Oliver:
16/m-main role/possible bachelor
Image
Oliver is the young general storekeeper in town. He and aura have a surprising connection. Kind, passive, and hardworking.
Elliot:
13/m-main role/ possible bachelor
Image
Lyles' son. He is very smart, and he knows it. His condescending boorish commentary can be frustrating, but he just likes to tease. Elliot thinks one way and acts another. Very spoiled prince type, for such humble beginnings.
Lyles:
46/m- minor role
Image
Lyles is the innkeeper of the town Aura stumbles on. He is a hearty and generous man.
Mint:30/f-minor role
Image
Mint is Aura's benevolent altruistic mother. She wants only the best, but does not see eye-to-eye with Aura. The very manifestation of femininity.
Willow:
forever25/f-minor role
Image
Mint's sister. Trend savvy, assertive, and loud. She ages like fine wine, but she'll always tell you she's 25.

This looks really great! The designs are amazing; I'm really loving the colors (especially Anthur's color scheme).
Good luck with this!

Thank you! I didn't draw them, but I can take 90% of the design credit! hehehe.

Doesn't Anthur just look like he's from the fire nation though? It cracks me up. :')

This looks so adorable :shock:
The art is really cute (ugh, I love Arthur's design, it's so pleasant to look at! Also, Elliot looks like a beautiful cinnamon roll).
I'll be following the game's development for sure!

Good luck!

Music, script and other assets are going according to schedule.

Right now, I love everything except for the backgrounds. :") Though to be fair, I can only see one, and it's only a test background, so... yep.

Ahem. Anyway, this looks really cute! The art looks lovely and the premise sounds quite interesting too. My only problem is, I feel like I'm way too old for this game, omg. Hahahaha. I mean, okay, Elliot may be a bit cute, but my goodness, at 13, he's like... like, a BABY for me. HAHAHA. My lil' bruh is 15 and yet I still think of him as a child (and I totally still see him as a kid, though he's already taller than I am). Definitely going for the safest choice here. Hi Anthur. Guess I'm stuck with you, huh. =)))

Even the protagonist, 15-year-old Aura, feels so young! Gaaah, so hard to relate to the younger teens once you've reached your late teens. Haha.

Good luck! Super sorry I can't help you with anything though. T___T I am not a good riddle solver, let alone a master solver!

Lol yeah that background is just a photograph! Pay it no mind. Yeah I'm in my early 20's so it's a bit young for a lot of us here, but it's a very pure story about a young girl everyone can surely enjoy. Please look forward to the finished project!
