My name is Jacob Caro, I love and respect Video Games as a way of emotional expression, art and communication, I only have one goal: For others to enjoy my games. This isn't about profit, or money, I just want the opportunity to tell a story, a story that I've put my heart and soul into. I want a chance to make it a reality and have many people play and experience it.
I'll explain a bit about how the project came to exist. I was a very lonely kid, I did not have many friends, a father, I sunk into Video Games with heavy narratives, story lines, I sunk into them, fell in love with the characters, the story, everything, the feeling of being so, immersed into a story was such a wonderful feeling, I want to give that feeling to others, many others, others of different race, religion, sex, anyone and everyone. The feelings of the writers touched me as a kid, people can be much more sincere when they're telling a story, that pure form of emotional expression is what I want to do, writing is the only way I can easily and clearly express myself to others, I desperately want the chance to do that.
I also hope that when and if others play my games, that I can hope to inspire others as I was inspired before, and I hope that if I so happen to inspire someone, or multiple people, that they'll go on to inspire another, or multiple others.
This is my dream, I am an eighteen year old boy living in Florida of the United States, the project's music composer is a man living in Sweden named "Martin Barreby" who has a dream of being a video game music composer, the character designer "Melody Brown" is a girl living in Canada who has always wanted to bean artist for games, the voice cast for the characters are trying their best to break into acting, I want to make my dreams a reality, while helping all the wonderful people helping me reach their dreams as well.
I'll now supply some details on the actual game for you all!

Bio: Haze is an eighteen year old punk that won't hesitate to tell someone
off to their face, be it a regular person, cop, or whoever.
He enjoys rubbing people's faults in their faces, especially people that refuse
to accept them theirselves. Haze knows who he is and isn't afraid to show
it, he rarely lets outside opinions affect him. Haze can see through most
people very well, almost perfectly. He doesn't believe in selfless action, or
sincerity so when he actually encounters individuals that have these traits he
tends to judge them all wrong.
After an accident that almost took her life, Haze grew very close to his
younger sister Clara, she is the only person he can even partially
emotionally level with. Haze is very protective of his sister, but doesn't
show it directly and instead tries to leave her snarky hidden warnings
about the crappy state of people disguised as one of his many complaints.

Bio: Clara is a ten year old girl that's very bright and chipper almost all the
time. She usually only gets angry at Haze for being rude to people,
and ends up using "Ass" to describe him more than his actual name.
Clara can be a little bratty sometimes but even when she tries to hold a
grudge with Haze she usually gives up on it pretty early on. Her favorite
meal is breakfast, and her favorite things TO have are Juice, Jam, & Eggs.

Bio: Craig is a middle aged police officer, he rarely has fun and works almost
constantly, even at home. He rarely loses his tired expression and
overworks himself daily.
A case of an assault that gravely injured his wife was left unsolved,
causing him to act over obsessive with cases, further pursuing them long
after his colleagues have given up. His constant serious attitude, lack of
emotion, and robot like work ethic earned him the nickname of "Robo"
with the younger officers in his department.
Underneath all his stress and emotional baggage rests a cop that just
wants desperately to help people and do his part. His selfless desire to
help and his own personal self interests do tend to blend together
uncontrollably a lot. But both are there.
