Unspoken Chronicles : Nora
Platform, infiltration et reflection video game taking place in a funny universe based on Norse mythology.
First game of our studio, Unspoken Chronicles : Nora is a video game mixing platform, puzzle and infiltration, taking place in a funny version of the Norse mythology. It is currently in development for PC, with Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One ports as Stretch Goals on this Kickstarter campaign.
It is told, among the Viking tribes, that the brave warriors who died on the battlefield earn a place in Valhalla, next to Odin, the father of all things. But what happens to the others ?
Nora, a young girl whose agility is matched only by her cowardice, is going to discover it the hard way. Embarked in spite of herself in a raid that goes wrong, she will have to prove her valor to the Lord of the Ase by going through the nine Realms of the World Tree and by « defeating » the dreadful Guardians. Equipped with Gungnir, the magic spear, she finds herself catapulted into an epic and funny journey.
The game offers four different gameplay styles :
dynamic platforms where you can combine Nora’s athletic skills and acrobatics with the help of Gungnir’s powers to perform fluid and elegant moves,
- infiltration, because, even if she owns a powerful spear, Nora is totally unable to fight,
- reflection to get out of the terrible traps scattered among the nine Realms,
- confrontation against colossal bosses, the Guardians.
Developing a video game is never easy, even more when we are only two. For several months now, we have been working full-time on the development of this project without any income, and we never gave up because we believe with all our heart in Unspoken Chronicles : Nora. With your help, our ability to upgrade the game production will be increased. The donation will be of course used to pay us, but also to hire musicians, to buy equipment…
As you can see in the Stretch Goal board, with a high enough fundraising, we will be able to add elements to the game that will make the game experience more immersive and pleasant. The playable demo that we make available on this Kickstarter allows us to present in detail the work that we have already done, and to let you imagine what the game could be like with your help.
Risks and challenges
Howly Games is a really small studio, as it only counts two members. The studio and "Unspoken Chronicles : Nora" are both the result of a child’s dream : being able to create video games that we would love to play. We are fully invested in this project, to create a universe, a story and a gameplay just like we imagine it. In order to realise that, the time spent on this project includes development as well as planning and learning new things.
We would like to thank you for taking the time to take an interest in our work. For many months now, "Unspoken Chronicles : Nora" represents most of our lives, and it will still be so until we have brought this great project to an end.
