Partisans: 1st Offensive [Historical][NaNoRenO 2015]

(To arms!)
Partisans: 1st Offensive is a prototype game for series of VNs dealing with lesser known struggles of WW2 Yugoslavia.

The game is going to be political drama with touch of romance and elements of strategy. Player will get to explore the life in short lived Uzhice Republic - the first free territory in Nazi-occupied Europe. This game will be free to play.

Team is made of writers and coders Quogu and Rantel with DragoonHP as our code guru (advisor and bugfighter). The rest of the crew is Red Viking and friends (Vili as our character artist and Nenad as our BG artist and me as producer/writer/coder). We also have a new team member, Ljubica. She is native of Užice where VN is taking place, as well as excellent 3D modeller (and additional BG artist for this project). Sharky the local heavy metal band artist is also joining to make us some cool war songs.

Story

It is 1941. Europe is conquered. Nazis are getting ready to attack Russia. Suddenly there is an uprising in the soft underbelly of the war beast, disrupting communications between Germany and Greece. Yugoslavian partisans liberate significant chunk of territory from Nazis. Between 300.000 and 500.000 people are suddenly living free in Uzhice Republic. It was the first liberated territory in WW2 Europe.

Alas their freedom will only last 67 days.

Status

Almost there with mini-games, art is lagging behind...

Plan

Writing/programming: Writers are gone, and programming is struggling...
Art: Artists split, but we have newcomer to make character art...
Music: We'll probably just use Partisan and German songs of the time. We actually have heavy metal band member on board, he will arrange some music for the project...
GUI: Our GUI artist came back from the dead, so we have new cool UI art..

Characters

Image

Mysterious sniper-lady...

Image

Comrade Andrija, main character...

And his brother Mitar, officer of he opposing forces (oh, woe!)

Wow, this is a very interesting idea to undertake and it's great to see people tackling a different part of history from what is usually covered. I wish all the team good luck in finishing the game!

Thank you for kind words of encouragement it means a world to us (since this is our first RenPy experience as a team).

Cheers

I hope you can find more artist for your team to help you get the game done! Your project really deserves it :)
(I can't believe I never heard about that part of history, I'm currently checking it out and it looks like a very interesting subject!)

Oh yea, very interestind and rich in dramatic stories. It was a mess (bloody one of course), but lots of melodrama and heroic stories, betrayals and tragedies, lots of evil and good all rolled into one...

Sadly my artists are busy on the other game we're finishing, but we will do a remake anyway this is just prototype to see if we can pull out story of this scope...

Cheers

I'm looking forward to this, especially since it concerns an aspect of Nazi-occupied Europe I know little about. Kudos for choosing such an engaging setting!

Very nice work! I think one of Olga's arms might be smaller than the other, but perhaps I'm being tricked by the pose.

Interesting... I was actually just reading about Transylvania in WWII (a little more north, I think, but another less-covered area of the war).

The art looks great, and that soundtrack sounds like it will be cool!

Best of luck with the prototype!

Thanx,

There are many stories, sadly, overlooked. Another great example of hidden stories is Warsaw Uprising, tragic event that remained suppressed until well into 80s...

Oh great, il looks like you got some cool female character :D They tend to be a bit rare in war-theme works, so I'm really glad to see those sprites!
