Sawena is an RPG fantasy game based on an upcoming novel. It will be developed and distributed in multiple chapters, allowing a greater sense of story telling.
It is being developed by me as an individual using the Construct 2 program. I am not a professional game maker, I have only a basic grasp of programming, but I feel that i can tell a good story. Construct 2 is a great program as it allows even laymen like me to create a game that is actually decent. The one issue with it is that in order to sell my game I have to have a full license. This Kickstarter is to raise funds for me to buy a license of the game. With it I will develop at least 4 chapters of the story. Each chapter will be a good length and have many features that may change, however what i can say for certain is that it will consist of:
3 playable characters, each with unique skills and attributes.
An RPG experience and leveling system.
A long and immersive story.
Release dates of around 4-6 weeks.
Everything in the game is drawn by mouse, often pixel by pixel and all sounds are made by me or friends. A demo is available on our website: www.sawena.co.uk
The demo is not a chapter in the game, it is an example of the kind of thing I intend to release, as Construct 2 only allows 4 layers and 100 events in the free version I was greatly hindered.
In short, if you would like to see a decent and fun game with a great and compelling story line be made, then we would welcome any help you can give us.
Risks and challenges
The main issue with the project is overcoming the initial barrier of access to Construct 2s premium features. Once this is overcome then there are should be no real Issues. The time allocated for each chapter is about a month, which should be ample time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
