Only A Subaltern[BxB?][Historical][Friendship]

#1 Post by UPA » Thu Dec 08, 2016 7:03 am

The year is 1883. India has been more or less peaceful since the rebellion in 1853,
and there are more British troops than ever before.
Control has tightened.
The next twenty years will see a nationalist movement rise.

This story is not about that.

Second lieutenant Watson has lost his best friend. That is to say, the two have stopped talking to one another. Will he ever be able to mend their relationship?


This is a short kinetic novel that should't take too long time to click through, it's only about 2,5K long.
Expecting to release it on itch.io once it's finished.

Realized that I'll have to re-draw one sprite, but here are two that made the cut.

Huzzah! Another fan!

I'll have to disappoint you in one regard, though. The game is lacking in accuracy uniform-wise(All of the boys are in the same cavalry regiment, but wear variations on the uniform). All of the uniforms are based off of existing ones in the period, though, so it shouldn't be glaringly off-kilter.

it's cool. thanks for the disclaimer. anachronism doesn't bother me much if it's not too distracting and if it doesn't get in the way of the story. plus, i've never been to this setting and time period, so it's all new to me. :)
