An Amazing and original Story!
In this adventure you will put yourself in the shoes of Chase (Chester) Mcnaughton, a hired adventurer and unusual objects achiever.
Chase will receive Cornelius (Corey) Bowman’s order(a powerful millionaire and eccentric collector, patron, and philanthropist of numerous causes) to trace and find someone who has mysteriously disappeared in a hidden place on earth while searching for one of the Vala’s nine seeds of power, an Asura (demon god) that according to a Hindu legend was the origin of gems and mines.
Skeptic at first, Chase, will soon discover that there is something else behind a simple disappearance and a few gemstones. Dark secrets, and people who will not stop at anything in order to obtain a power never seen before. The supernatural and the everyday come together in this story.
The charm and magic of classic adventures!
The seeds of Vala is a classic 2D handmade graphic adventure that focuses on story, puzzles and characters. The budget initially includes support for PC and Linux, but if we exceed the initial budget sufficiently we can study the possibility of adding more platforms, as well as Steam compatibility.
During this game you will experience all the charm and magic of classic graphic adventures.
Nice graphics and animations!
The seeds of Vala graphic art in is inspired by the classic graphic adventures. For the development we will use both tools that were used at the time and modern tools that allow us a better finish and production speed.
In art we incorporate new elements that update the classical experience but keeping its spirit intact. Backgrounds, sprites and animations are completely renovated and handmade, keeping the charm of classic graphics.
Awesome original orchestral soundtrack accompanied by ethnic instruments from each of the regions that will appear in the video game and that will make you put yourself even more in the shoes of the protagonist. The epic and adventurous themes will be mixed with varied themes adapted to each scene, with climates of mystery, intrigue and even romanticism.
Instrumentalists from around parts of the world will collaborate in the recording of the soundtrack, whose result will catch you out from the first to the last minute so that you can enjoy the adventure with all your senses.
Each of the special sound effects will be completely original, studio recorded, specifically for our adventure. Adapted to the needs of the video game, they will set the scenes and recreate the scenes much better and give the sound section the warmth necessary to immerse you in the story of our character.
Fulfill a dream!
Why Kickstarter? Because we can't do it alone. We need you! Your help is necessary to produce this first episode. We love stories, and this wonderful community offers the possibility of doing something beyond what our resources allow us to create on our own.
Part of our work is done, we have an amazing story and a lot of work already done, have the desire, enthusiasm and skills to create the game we dream of playing with and designing as artists. We are prepared to reach that dream, but we cannot do it without your help.
The game requires script writing, dialogues, puzzle design, storyboard creation, coding, character creation and animation, background design and art in general. Music composition, sound design, FX and voice acting, (the latter as long as the initial economic objective is exceeded and this allows voice acting).
All this is necessary to complete the development of the game and requires time and continuous attention. The objective of the initial budget will allow us to develop all this in the established time, but a bigger increase in the budget would mean the possibility of spending more time and resources in the Project in order to improve the gaming experience.
Having more developers, graphic artists and animators would greatly lighten the workload and allow us to concentrate on the overall narration and game design.
In addition, obtaining software licenses, the cost of living and invoices require a good amount of money and time.
Risks and challenges
To develop a graphic adventure is certainly a challenge, but if there is areason why we love graphic adventures is because we like challenges.
The Seeds of Vala is a new project and every new project always presents a new problem-solving challenge, but we have enough tools, motivation, experience and talent to face it and with your support we can make it happen.
We are very excited to face this challenge with you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
