Please note that this is a mock up logo I did via the use of some lovely brushes (see credits) in 10 minutes.
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Otome, Mentions of tragedy
Link: Prologue: Caged Birds is a prequel to a game I was previously making that has been put on pause for the time being, Tale of the Nightingale. Instead of just mentioning how the Nightingale got caught I decided to make a prequel game to explain, but I didn't just want to make it about the Nightingale, so hence Allyson was born. Furthermore, as some things regarding Tale of the Nightingale has been changed, like I want to add character songs/singing in the game, this game is also being used as a test run to how that impacts players.
Series: Hence the link and myself wanting to create a series of games involving fairy tales and singing - Prologue: Caged Bird and Tale of the Nightingale both belong to the same series, which is at the moment called MAD TALES
Unfortunate circumstances have befallen young Allyson Gide’s family, her Father and younger brother were caught in a carriage accident but two months ago and the family has become in debt from the medical bills. Despite struggling to survive her Father has passed on, with a grieving Mother and healing brother, Allyson is unsure of her life and what the future will bring. However she finds enlightenment in listening to a certain bird of song – the Nightingale. But the King has set his sights on the illustrious bird and his court scramble to capture the bird of song.
