Fate's Flame {Adventure X Fantasy X Romance}

#1 Post by Neeka » Mon Nov 27, 2017 2:07 pm

Ostrich Burger Productions presents....

Fate's Flame (title w.i.p) follows the story of Mai, a young woman chasing after a dark past. On a journey to a dangerous land fueled by revenge, there's an unexpected turn of events as she finds herself travelling with a bodyguard who has already taken on a job. Between a loud, arrogant hero of battle and a haughty student, her quest becomes incredibly difficult. She vows to see them as nothing more than a nuisance, their pasts forming walls around them. Perhaps it's better this way. Yet as they travel with each other their true nature is made apparent, whether for better or worse, all while a revolutionary secret claws it's way to the surface.


The story takes place in a fictional world, riddled with war despite it's current peaceful times. There was a power struggle between the species, no one true victor. Despite this the different races hold grudges and stereotypes against one another, protecting their own kind. Mai tries her best to ignore childish stereotypes despite the rough treatment she receives.

Mai:

A young woman chasing her past, hell-bent on revenge. No matter where she goes, flames of her past burn their way forward leaving scars. Generally easy-going and cheerful, she's hesitant to letting others in. Though she's seen as scum by the other races she is open-minded. She is outspoken and determined, not something to be trifled with despite her small stature.

Image

Kadius:

A Giant with a battle filled history. He is arrogant of his skills, twin axes always strapped to his back. Since they are in peaceful times, he's resorted to being a bodyguard, more so for the thrill than the coin. His general disposition is happy and easy-going, seen as slacking off by others. He enjoys a good drink of alcohol and a fair fight. Despite his disposition he is intelligent and crafty, unknown to many.

Image


Aeden:

A Fairy of quiet disposition. He happens to have the same destination in mind as Mai, becoming unlikely travelling companions. He views humans as mud and Giants as not much better. Perhaps his views will change with the help of Mai. He is a student, hands stained black from magic use. He is cold and off-standish, constantly looking down on others. Deep down he has a troubled heart and guilty conscience, finding it difficult to engage with others. Aeden is full of surprises.

This looks really cool! Aeden's magic-marked hands are an awesome detail. I'd suggest doing a grammar check on your original post, especially for commas.

I'll be following this.

"Date for the romance. Marry for the truth." - No Good Wife (Alpha available for Mac and PC.)

* What do you think?: This is a cool idea! I'm curious about Mai's dark past and quest for revenge, since she looks like a pretty easygoing girl.
* Which character do you like best?: It's so hard to choose, but I'm going to have to go with Kadius. Giants and strong men are usually portrayed as idiots, so I like the fact that he's a clever character. I love Aedan and Mai, too, though!
* Is there anything you expect from this game?: It seems like it will be dark and serious in some parts and more lighthearted in others. I'm curious about how you'll balance that.
* Any comments or concerns?: Like verysunshine said, the OP could stand to be checked over for grammar. Otherwise, it looks great. :) The art is gorgeous, both sprites and backgrounds!

Oooh, that's a really cool main menu concept. It looks like the type of illustration you would see in an old book.

Here's a short preview of the game! <<3 It's rather short, just the prologue and first scene but hopefully it'll give you a taste for what to expect. Feel free to write down and comments or concerns!

The script is 90% completed! Programming is about 50%. Only waiting for a few assets now, CGs and voice.

Question: What do you feel about this game being open ended? It's set up where there's the strong possibility of a sequel, which would include more aspects such as in-depth information about the Kingdom, the races, wild life, etc. beyond what's in the first game. It would heavily focus on Mai and her past and how it affects all of their futures, including that of the entire Kingdom.
