I'm finishing the interface and fine-tuning the code. The math is almost done.
SilverLock is a vampire hunter simulator / dating sim (while nothing of "dating" and "sim" are there).
You play as a French scout caught in a clash against a darkness entity that's rising in a prussian mark, during Napoleonic Wars. As a criminal conscript, a great sin weight on your shoulders, and you get a deal you can't refuse: help that mark and your convinction will be redeemed.
The game can be broadly resumed as: solve quests each night, by spending points you collect by increasing bounds with the support cast.
So, for example, the more you're tied to the witch, the more MAGIC point you collect each night to solve quests that require them.
Deceit is everywhere, as much as love...
Beware! One of the girl, randomly dealt each time, is a traitor. You doesn't know who's until the very end, and you can fall in love with the wrong one. At the same time, in a given chapter, you're called to put a death penalty on one of them! Yes, it's a gothic drama world.
-Arcade slot system. Choose a slot to continue a saved position or start a new game (like Zelda, Metroid or any JRPG this world). Soon to be released in the cookbook section.
-CoffeeBreak. It's a single shot bookmark you can use to freeze the game and continue later from that very point. If your batteries are going down before reaching a checkpoint, here's your solution.
-Insert name with onscreen keyboard. Random names, default one, cheat codes.
-Rich extra section, with gallery, sound mode, scene mode, encyclopaedia, achievements.
-Rich option screen, with game resume, preferences, game data, guides and what you need to play safe.
-BOUND SISTEM! Is not only about collecting points. Spend your experience points in a game of strategy to get more and more bound points. At the same time, discover the mysterious stories of those 4 women.
-SILVERLOCK! Create an exclusive silver lock with a character, and her special quests appear on the map. Solve them to get deeper and deeper in her secret history and reach an ending (but what happen if you end the story with the traitor??).
-TRIAL AND BLOODSPHERES! Find the bloodspheres on the map and assign to girls to have hints on who's the traitor. You have a trial to face and you can risk to kill an innocent!
-NIGHTMARE! Nightmares are a minigame of strategy and luck. Put your actions in sequence and hope that the evil one doesn't reach you.
(name could changes, portraits to come)
The previous vampire hunter was found dead. Marin she's her daughter. Now she help Leon the exorcist to face presences of darkness. Despite her affirmative conduit, she's in fact haunted by horrible dreams. Why sometime she act so violently?
A woman about to be burned for witchery. She does have really killed her son and all those babies? Was she really aware of your coming? She like to play a cat and mouse game with you.
The heir of the mark throne, she's all about her duties, and all against French. She must prevail against a number of males that want her position, so she's framed inside a rigid conduit of war and discipline. Well, at least until you spot her dancing in a forest...
A misterious girl that seems to appear from nowhere and know everything people can't see. She's a monster? A ghost? A dream?
She seems someone that you knew already, but she's saying coming from the future?!?
(Note: I'm working on it as a solo project, line by line and PIXEL BY PIXEL with care, so don't expect to see much of the art soon, it's the last thing I will add).
Some screenshot at random will follow, with placeholders when needed.
