Story
Story

With memory weak and drive strong, a young orphan fights, explores, and upgrades to uncover the truth. Inspired by true, personal events.

The game is set in medieval Antillia, the Isle of Seven Cities. The people fear myths of magic, and harshly execute entire families in the fear of witchcraft and sorcery. Estar fears all of it the same, but fears everyone else as well. As the facts of his life are uncovered, his perception may change, and the choices he makes could decide the course of history.

Estar, Player
Estar, Player

 Orphaned at a young age, Estar finds himself lost in a world full of fear, greed, and suffering. There are others like  him, lost and alone, while there are those who have everything, and thirst for more.

He is a Fighter with unusual abilities. Aged 18 at the Start of thee game, He has no real understanding of his abilities or how they cam to be. He specializes using various weapons, and enhances those with magical properties.

As the game progresses, you will uncover his past and unlock his potential. Work with others or use them and leave them for death. Estar is the only locked Party member.

Gloria

Forced to abandon home and live in a small southern outpost, she trains with others who share similar unusual conditions and abilities. Aged 17, She knows little of her abilities, except that they are not widely accepted.

She is a strong White Mage, though with little Wisdom, her spells take time to improve. She is tempted by Black Magic, since common folk assume all magic is Dark anyway.

Stretch Goals
Stretch Goals

While I can complete the game with only $600, The more money I receive, the more time I can invest into making the game its very best. I'd love to work with a larger team, but most people require greased palms. 

At $1000 I will add an immense amount of Art and Music into the game.

I will also add a fun way to grind for experience, such as a classic Zelda style map combat. (does not replace turned based battle scenes)

I will also likely remove the level cap and level enemies with your party, to extend game play.

Unlocks Mini Sketchbook $22 reward!

At $2000 Half the games Art and Music will be original, and tile-sets will be completely original. This will allow the world to appear smooth and not mapped out. Also, I will begin building my team, seeking a Storyboard Writer and a singer.

I will also implement a Sphere Grid or Materia system into the game, similar to those of Final Fantasy.

Unlocks Mini Soundtrack $28 reward!

At $5000 ( My Dream,  Lol ) I will use only Original Artwork and Music, and create Manga style cut-scenes. The story will really be alive, and emotional, instrumental songs will feature a beautiful voiced female singer. Not to mention 40 hours of game play.

I will also work on a battle view that shows animated battlers and party members. The Battle system turn counter is surprisingly complex so this is a surprisingly difficult task. Lets make dreams realities!

Unlocks Full Sketchbook $32  and Soundtrack $38 rewards!!

Guaranteed analysis
Guaranteed analysis

  Here's a detailed list of the minimum stats of the completed game. Current refer to the game in its current, unfinished state. Many items and what not may be removed, however.

These are in no way limits, I love the idea of a huge game, lets make it bigger and better!

Art and Music
Art and Music

Artwork is done entirely by myself, and Music by our musician, Shelton King.

Due to the size of the game, completely original art and music will require the stretch goals to be met, also unlocking sketchbooks and soundtracks as rewards.

A dark theme reflects the story, while the combat and difficulty reflect the harsh time. Music is both instrumental and computer generated, creating a deep, memorable sound.

Artwork retains the hand drawn look while used in the game, allowing the player to feel the memories of the orphan.

At $5000 I will not only do 100% custom Artwork and music, I will employ Manga Style Cinematics and attempt to find a beautiful voiced female singer for music.

Risks and challenges

With Successful funding, I will have about 20 hours a week to work on the project. More if stretch goals are met. The expected completion is a guess and could be extended. All listed features and software are fully functional already and therefore no real obstacles prevent the games release.

Issues come and go, I'd love to say they won't happen, but I'm sure they will, so Just be sure to check my regular updates to see if an issue has risen, and what steps we are taking to solve it.
