Tales From The Under-Realm: Hazel Kickstarter

the game official trailer

I’m happy to announce that I launched my first Kickstarter:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/winterwolves/tales-from-the-under-realm-hazel

Since it was the first time for me, I decided to pick a “small game” (remember that small for me means medium-sized for almost everyone else!). I did this on purpose since I didn’t want to stress myself too much as first attempt!

Anyways, it’s going rather well (I picked a very low base goal since wasn’t sure exactly how much to ask). But what is this game about?

It was born by an idea of making a series of “dark fantasy” games, having a common denominator: they are narrated by the Nameless God, who rules the Under-Realm (this idea was mentioned briefly in the other Aravorn games, but never explored so much).

This first “episode” (but they’re all disconnected from each other, so no recurring characters) will see the witch Hazel who was captured and imprisoned.

from her outfit you’d never guess she’s a witch, right??

In the same room, she’ll meet with the first love interest, the beautiful assassin Sasha:

she’s cute, but deadly

And the second and last love interest is the paladin Tori:

who said that paladins don’t wear mini-skirts?

And if you think the outfits are too unrealistic, don’t worry: in the game you’ll be able to pick all the options, like a full plate armor for Tori.

You can find even more info in the Kickstarter page. It’s a bit weird I know, since this game’s story actually takes place AFTER all the four Loren spin-off games I’m going to do in the next years, but the base idea (that Hazel is one of the last witches remaining, and there’s this order hunting down witches) can work only in this specific point of the Aravorn’s timeline. A bit of a spoiler maybe, but I think people will forgive me!

Final considerations

As you see I tried to put a very unusual starting situation, also because, I forgot to say, at the beginning of the story you (Hazel, the main protagonist) are dead! But… how that happened? And there’s a way to cheat death? You’ll revive the last days of life of Hazel with the Nameless God powers and find out !

who’s dead? you’re dead!

The game will have as usual a very deep story and the characters will gradually reveal more of their background, motivations and in some cases even show surprising change of heart. There will be some darker scenes but nothing “extreme” like torture or rape, so don’t worry about that!

I also made sure to include happy endings so that all the romance plots will end in a satisfying manner (even more important considering it’s a LGBT game).

The Kickstarter is about to end, and while I put as estimate release June next year, if everything goes as planned, I think that is very likely that the game will be out much sooner than that! Stay tuned!

    It seems really interesting, and thanks for giving it a possibility for a good ending in the game too, I am the kind of person who prefers to play games that does not have sad endings (with no other options)

    Hoping it all goes well 🙂

    PS: did you ever thought, when it is only 2 romance options, to make a “polyamory ending”? Or is something you don’t like to do?

    PS2: On your last post, for some reason i noticed that i could not see all posts, so I posted once i did not see, and posted again thinking it was a bug. but just noticed what happened after this, so… I’m sorry :<

      Yes actually I’m planning to have like 4 happy and 1 sad ending, so no worries 🙂
      Polyamory ending you mean threesome/harem ending? I did it once in my game Amber’s Magic Shop. I am planning to do that later in future games as well. I have no problems doing that, as long as it fits the story (in this case not really).
      No problems about the double posts, it’s because to avoid spam I need to approve them first when a new user tries to post.

      • Bitow says:

        Yeah i meant that kind of ending, nice to know there may be chances ( and i agree that it should fit the story, forcing things usually makes stories not interesting ).

        I didn’t know Amber’s had it :O

        • admin says:

          Well it’s not “harem”, but with Cosa and Anders you basically can have a threesome. But indeed if I remember correctly (that game is 3 years old) you basically love Cosa (the female) so I guess doesn’t count for you definition of harem/poly!

    It’s sad seeing another fully yuri game, cause this is a genre which totally doesn’t interest me (me as a gay man). But if it’ll bring you good money then you do you I guess. I only hope there will be more games for people like me in the future, with BxB romances.

  3. SimonStardust says:

    Will the other “Tales From The Under-Realm”-games be also GxG only? I absolutely love darker stories, while girls as love interests always will be kinda meh to me. I mean, I’ve long since lost my hopes to see another BxB only game made by you, but GxB wouldn’t be too much of a financial risk I guess?
    Ah, I really hope I didn’t come across as presumptuous. Just asking. ^^;

    • admin says:

      No this one was GxG but it was random, in future there can be any combination (but as you said probably not an exclusive BxB).
      But there are a lot upcoming games featuring male romances: CoM, all the Loren’s spin off (even if the first won’t have any gay romances, there’ll still be 2 male love interests) etc.
