About

 

Check out our demo for the game, which includes the prologue and part of the first chapter for each character!

  http://www.alebrijesgame.com/

 “Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” -Stephen King

Alebrijes is a visual novel with four protagonists, whose lives were forever altered by a horrible tragedy. They all tried to cope with their losses and move on.

Now, eight years later, a new tragedy brings them back to their childhood town. But will this event bring them together or break them apart? When fate comes calling, will they stand together or fight alone?

Only you can decide!

If you want to learn more about the aspects of the game, check out our Tumblr here: https://alebrijesgame.tumblr.com/

Meet the four playable characters:

 

 

 

 

 Here we show the many different poses and variations you can expect from our main characters, as well as examples of secondary and minor characters.

 

 

 

 

 Each route features a unique storyline, complete with their own unique antagonist. However, unlocking the secret chapter (called “Alebrije’s Origin”) of each story, will help you uncover the bigger story; that which ties everything together.

 

Four Protagonists

Instead of going with the usual single-story-branching-out that is the norm for visual novels, we tried to build something that would be a bit more memorable. At the start of each new game, you'll be given the choice to choose between four protagonists (two male, two females.) This choice is the most important because it means you'll be embarking on the story from their point of view. But instead of having the same story narrated by four different characters, we chose to make different stories for them all. These stories will change further depending on which character you choose to partner with. In all, this means that there will be eight different stories, which all weave together in a bigger narrative.

Branching Narrative

In this game, your decisions dictate the path your character will take. The decisions you take along the way (average 2 per chapter) will not only change the ending, but the way you resolve the conflict as well! Each story has more than six endings, with two different epilogues & one secret chapter (unlockable)!

 Here’s a sample the different types of CGs the game will have. Each story/route will have 9 CGs, not counting the many Items CGs! That means that the core game will feature more than 65 CGs!

 

 

 

 

 Here’s a sample of the quality and variety of backgrounds you can expect from the game.

Risks and challenges

Even though the whole team would like to work on this full time, it's not always possible. We each have a day job that we would like to keep, after all. Time management on this project may be difficult, but at the very least we've prepared as much content as possible before we even started working on this Kickstarter so that once we are funded we can work smoothly.

We already have most art assets that we think we might need for the game, though there will be cases where new backgrounds and CGs are necessary. We've also been optimizing the script for the game so that coding should be made easier in the future.
