About

 THE TALE OF YAMI is a 2D platform-adventure game. (An action, adventure, horror) You have been tossed from your planet to another, unknown and all alone. Seek friendship and alliances in this mysterious new world, find out what else has been lurking in the same solar system, battle vicious and ferocious enemies, and try to fight your way home.

Will you fight together? or alone?

 

 Yami is a small, dark, shadow creature, they live on a post-apocalyptic planet in the centre of a distant solar system. Young and starting to approach adulthood they will soon experience change within themselves and their actions.

For the most part, Yami is a reliable character who is kind, caring and mature. They're agile, swift and nimble to face the elements on their own planet.

All was well for millenniums of years for your home, however, the planet has slowly deteriorated over the years and resources have become scarce, the planet slowly looks to be dying but on one tragic evening the Sabithia (The planet) has just collided with another planet on a collision course, you've been launched far out into space only to breach the atmosphere of another distant planet. Your friends and family have all been left behind, it's unknown whether they survived too but you quickly realise, you're all alone.

All alone...

There's a dark, bittersweet vibe surrounding you, can you see what lurks beneath the innocent flower?

Will you face the elements and take on the path to find your way home? Will you ever find your friends again? will you even survive this ominous journey?

Something is calling out...

The traditional style of 2D side-scroll platforming with a more immersive art style and gameplay, opponent damage output can change based on elements ( similar to Pokemon Water>Fire ) and some unique gameplay styled areas suited for different tactical movements such as flying, swimming and running.

12 UNIQUE REGIONS to explore and 5+ SUPPORTING CHARACTERS to aid you in your quest to find home

ADAPTIVE WEATHER can change the enemies and abilities in a region morphing the playstyle in each area.

SIDE QUESTS and SHADOWED PATHS to keep you occupied in the vast regions of the unknown world.

ABILITIES WITHOUT SKILL CAPS to combine combos to outplay your opponents with slick transitional powers.

RECORD YOUR TAKEDOWNS and show your friends your fighting skills!

There are 3 overall difficulties which will differ the intensity of gameplay in each mode:

Easy - A lower difficulty often set to focus on the storyline.

Normal - The more challenging mode, balancing the story with combat.

Nightmare - The hardest difficulty, this is for veterans who have slick moves in combat, tactical movement and strategies.

- Co-op story mode

- Multiple endings

- Survival mode

- Boss Battles

- Side-quests

- Multiplayer Brawl

- Behind the scenes content

The soundtrack will be developed exclusively for the game by Riko. On SoundCloud down below you can listen to a few tracks that will appear in the game. The OST for the game will also be available for digital download and offered with some of the rewards!

 

You may be wondering about the financial situation with the game, the game at standard price will be £12.99 and will only be available on pc unless we completely smash the pledges in which case I'd love to have an ios/android release for large screen tablets and things! I've set the project to take around 2 years which gives me plenty of time to balance it with university and so it won't be rushed. I will be working every day of the week that I can to develop the game, its a very passionate project for me so I hope you can all hold my hand along the way.    

I've set the pledge bar to £15G so I can fully implement all the features I want in this game with no problem, I don't want to release an unfinished game, I want every great Idea in the game without drawbacks so that we can have an untouched adventure together! As well as that, I will need to cover other costs such as marketing and advertisements to make sure everyone knows about the amazing game we'll have created.

 

Risks and challenges

I will be creating the: Art, Music, Game/Mechanics, Branding/Advertisements etc. You will be receiving a game straight from my heart completely revolving around my imagination and creativity, I will invite you to a thrilling adventure!
