Originally I wanted to wait a bit more before announcing it, but then I got new images so nice that was a pity to not share them with my followers on the various social networks and so… I cannot be silent anymore, I must speak!
I’m proud to announce a new fantasy roleplay game called “Seasons Of The Wolf”, which hopefully will be released this Fall, or at worst next Christmas.
As I wrote in previous blog posts, the work on Planet Stronghold: Warzone (the sequel) is still going on fine, but it has become a bigger game, and the new battle system still needs to be coded and tested. So while I assure you that it will be out, I decided to start this new RPG to give something to play sooner to my roleplay fans!
The game starts in Ninim, a village in the Northern region of Aravorn (the fantasy world where Loren and other games of mine take place). It’s a cold, freezing land, where snow and ice are present most time of the year. It’s inhabited by snow elves, elves that have white/light gray hairs and eyes, and are very skilled Rangers, Hunters or Druids (the three playable classes as main character).
There two siblings, Althea & Shea are living together with their father Morran, who raised them when their mother went missing years ago. They live a frugal life, trying to earn some money and food through hunting.
One day, one of the two siblings (will vary depending who you choose to play) finds a wolf puppy and decides to take care of her. But this decision will lead to a disastrous chain of events later in the game…
Obviously, this game won’t be as big as Loren. There will be one romance for each sexual preference, and the story will be overall shorter. The party also will have less members, 8 characters in total. The battles system is a modified version from Loren’s one. It will still be 6 vs 6, but the layout will change from top/down to left to right, also showing the characters waist-up.
This is possible because the game will use the new resolution of 1280×720 pixels, allowing more space for bigger sprites, more menu/icons and so on. It will also be designed from start to be playable on touch devices (will probably be available for Android some months after it’s out for desktops).
The game will span into the four seasons (that’s why it’s called Seasons Of The Wolf) and the party will have to travel also to far away lands, so it won’t take place only in the frozen Northern Wastelands.
I’ll reveal the various characters of the game in the coming weeks. I can say that there’s a good variety, and some interesting classes to play, like Jariel, the Bard! 🙂
Jariel is the GxB love interest (straight male for those not familiar with the terminology)
Of course there are also eccentric characters like Rowinda, the Warlock:
Unfortunately, Rowinda doesn’t want to date anybody! She’s too busy being craaazY!
Each character has several different outfits, and there will be several CG scenes (both romance related and not) through the story.
For those who can’t wait, I am posting the characters sheets more quickly in my twitter, tumblr, facebook and in my forums 😉
