About

 

Konstandin is a story-driven pixel game, made using the Rpgmaker VX Ace engine. It falls under multiple genres, such as: Psychological Horror, Drama and Mystery. 
Weren't you at times curious about those creepy tales our grannies used to know...about heart devouring monsters, three headed dragons and earthly beauties being cemented alive into walls?... No? 
What about stories of people talking to animals or the dead coming back to life? You might've heard of those, for sure.
Blessings, curses, good and evil. We see it everywhere. But it's always the way how the events unfold that leaves people thinking in the end. 
The idea for Konstandin came as a result of our desire to show the world something inspired from our rich Albanian folklore, combined with a modern setting.

And for us there is no better way, than turning our story into an engaging role playing game!

A year has passed since the 26 year old Rinor Avdiu married his university crush Aulona. Due to her circumstances, the couple had to move to the only place that could improve Aulona's condition, a village named Buroja. It's a pretty desolate place, but as long as the two of them are together, all is well.

Lulled into a sense of peace through their daily routine, the couple enjoys a relatively normal marital life. At times Rinor forgets to wash the dishes or buys the wrong groceries, but all is well.

A nice day, a normal day, everyday...
That is until two girls are reported missing and the couple slowly realizes that Buroja holds an old eerie legend in which they're partaking. The legend of a cursed knight, called Konstandin. 

The story revolves around Rinor who tries to find the meaning behind it, while he faces horrific mental and physical challenges.

The main inspiration for our story stems from the Albanian legend “Besa e Konstandinit”. It’s a touching tale that teaches us the value of words, since even they, aren’t for free.

One of the reasons why games become memorable is because they have amazing soundtracks. We want Konstandin to be the same, so one of our main features is the original music, skillfully composed to compliment the environment.
Here are a few examples of our soundtracks: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We understand that investing into a project you might’ve never heard of is a big deal, because there is information asymmetry. But we are seriously pouring our time, hearts and skills into this game. 
It’s because our team has hit the lowest point of financial exhaustion that we’re asking for your help. Nevertheless, in order to take away any doubts we prepared a demo of Konstandin, so you can play it and judge for yourself if it’s worth your money. 

 This is the latest version of the demo, but some things might still be a subject to change in the final game release:

 

Risks and challenges

Despite all of the preparations we made in order to finish Konstandin, there might be a lot of unforeseen circumstances that can stop production, from the sudden death of our developers, to equipment malfunction.
We have a clear objective in mind that we’re trying to achieve, but as you all know, we’re human and obstacles can arise out of nowhere.
Still, we will give it our all to overcome them and deliver to you only the best possible product!
