Check out our updates for more on the story and game's lore!
‘Unhappy Ever After’ is a dark, yet funny, RPG that takes traditional fairy tales and turns them on their heads. Along your journey you will meet familiar characters that you’ve know all your life and see them in new situations and within frameworks that you will make you both laugh and despair.
Beyond its parody to the fantasy, ‘Unhappy Ever After’ also aims to parody the real, drawing on situations that are all too prevalent in our world, such as drug abuse, terrorism, and dirty politics. Death too is a prevalent theme and no character, no matter how well known, how famous, or how integral to the plot, is safe from its cold hand!
Despite its beautiful graphics, wondrous music, and humorous interludes, ‘Unhappy Ever After’ is a game, in places, designed to shock and appal, and where your decisions, no matter how noble can lead to devastating ends.
Explore an open world where you decide who to help and who to leave to their own fate.
An open quest system with hundreds of quests to undertake.
Meet characters from ancient stories and rhymes such as Hansel and Gretel,or Little Red Riding Hood.
A unique magic system where strengthening one ability weakens another.
A addictive drug system, complete with dealers and quests.
An adult-themed RPG with political coups, terrorism, drugs, murder, and revenge.
Beautiful lands to explore.
A companion system, with reputation and conversation.
A day and night system where characters go to bed, move around, and visit locations at certain times.
We've reached our goal. Yay! Thank you to all our early backers. For each stretch goal we reach we plan to expand on the world with a new area, quests, and characters. Each of these will tie in with some fairy story, or work of classical literature. They will all be included in the main game as additional, non-compulsory, plots. We will elaborate more on each one if we reach them.
At present 'Unhappy Ever After is around 80% complete. All the major systems are in place, the main quest in finished as are many side quests. Because this is an open-world game we want to make sure that every corner is filled with interesting locations, quests, objects, and characters; and this is our main goal for the moment.
We have come to Kickstarter looking for a small amount of funding to help us get the game released by Christmas. We will use the funds for more custom assets for a wider variety of biomes and a small amount for marketing.
Risks and challenges
We are a team of six developers that have come from other studios to create an RPG that is truly character driven. Between us we have helped develop and market five commercial games.
Due to the game's advanced development state, and our previous experience, we anticipate no issues in getting the game released by Christmas.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
