Unspoken Chronicles : Nora, a Handmade plateformer
Platform, infiltration and reflection video game taking place in a funny universe based on Norse mythology.
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 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.
Every realm is ruled by a powerful Guardian. Gigantic beasts, dangerous giants or mighty heroes, they all have in common the will to defend their territory from any invaders. Unfortunately, they think that Nora is an invader...
The great thing about the boss fight against the Guardians is that every single one will be unique in its gameplay style. Some will be action oriented, like Modgud's, but some will be really specific, adding new ways to play and have fun with our game...
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 because we believe with all our heart in Unspoken Chronicles : Nora. But all our efforts are not enough to fully develop our game. Even if we decide not to pay ourselves, we need money to get some help on music and sound design, and to continue to pay the costs of the company. This is why, with your help, our ability to upgrade the game production will be increased.
With a high enough fundraising, we will be able to add elements that will make the game experience more immersive and pleasant, like new game mode, ports on consoles, translations.. . 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" has been representing most of our lives, and it will still be so until we bring this great project to an end.
