This is my game called: "The Elemental Stories", it's a solo project on which I started on in late 2008. I enthusiasticly worked on this game for months, untill sadly enough it fell into the dust for years to come. Untill one day, I checked my game out again, an realised that there was still huge potential behind it. So I decided to work on it again and release a new demo!
The newest demo (May 2011) can now be downloaded!
If you decide to download my game, I would HIGHLY appreciate it if you would let me know what your thoughts about the game are. Maybe you could be the first person to review my game? - Give it a rating, or just share your critiques about it with me so that it can be improved even more.
Note: It's possible that you can't use a former save file of one of the older demo versions!
I came up with a great concept that really is a key to my game and it's storyline.
My game lets the player choose between four main characters each with there own unique storylines. However these stories are set in the same world taking place at the same time, therefor the storylines are connected to eachother; they form one big story. In other words, you can live one story through the eyes of four characters, who all live in different regions in the same world.
This gives the player alot of playing time! And afcourse the player will learn more about the story only if he played through all four of the storylines...
Main Background story:
Welcome in the world of Uruta, a unique world, not like any other one. It is a world that has always been protected by the powerful and tremendous goddess of light: Athena. To keep this world save, Athena gave birth to four other goddesses:
- Vura the goddess of fire,
- Neptuna the goddess of water,
- Gaia the goddess of earth and nature,
- and Artica the goddess of ice.
Each of these four elemental goddesses created a weapon which holded there own signature powers. (The Sword of Fire, the Daggers of Water, the Gloves of Earth and the Spear of Ice.)
These weapons where granted to four of the most skillful human beings on the planet, who received the task to protect the peace. Which they did for a long time...
However they didn't know the greatest Goddess Athena had a very powerful sister, the Goddess of Darkness: Selena, who has always lived in the shadows of her sister.
Despite being the goddess of darkness, Selena isn't really evil. However, if she feels any darkness in a persons heart, she thinks of this as a "pure" heart. This could cause many problems if Selena falls in the wrong hands.. Unfortunatly, that is exactly what happened.
A powerfull man and head of a criminal organisation used the powers that Selena granted him to kill the four weapon wielders... And so the four godesses, were forced to quickly hide there signature weapons to different places. And now many years later, the time has come for four new humans to carry these weapons. In this huge world, with there own life stories:
“The Elemental Stories”.
Now on to some more indepth information:
Frank 'Fransisco' Manchez (The Main antanogist)
Frank Manchez is the head of the Manchez crime syndicate. He has always been a very powerful and ruthless business man, with no conscious. Because of his huge criminal empire he has become a wealthy man with great influence and power. However, now that the Goddess Selena granted him the ultimate power of darkness, he truly became unstopable.
His dream now is to become the new king of this world. Since he is the half brother of the recent king of the world, it wouldn’t be a hard task for him to become the new king. However he does have a different concern: the only threat in existence are the four elemental weapons hidden in this world. And he knows the time will come that the new weapon wielders will be chosen. There for he set up an army in the hope that these weapons are found, before they are taken by the new wielders...
Jason is a young boy who lives in the ever peaceful Southwood village. He one day wakes up and gets ready for his big day: he will be officially trained by the skilful Master Exercise. Always equipped with his trusty old wooden sword, Jason is one young hero who awaits a big adventure...
Joshua is a young and cocky thief, with a natural skill for martial arts and robbery. He prefers his favorite weapons, his daggers. He lives in Agrada, a city located in the eastern desert regio.
Joshua can sometimes be a bit selfish and wants to be wealthy one day. However he doesn't know what things are about to await him.
Kitty is the result of an expiriment between a girl and a cat. She lives in the western forrest area near a small town. She has a crush on a young hunter, and she tries everything to try getting his attention. Her life is difficult. But this young cat girl will have to set her mind to more important things that are about to await her!
Princess Paradise (or just Paris) is the daughter of the king in the world, and thus the niece of Frank Manchez. She doesn't care to much for being a princess or being famous, she is a tough girl who really wants some adventure. And that is a wish that will be rudely granted!
Gameplay & Features:
* The game makes use of a mission system, this means that the player will have to complete quests in order to progress the story. At the end of each mission, there is a reward.
*The game uses a sideview Battlesystem, it's simple but effective.
Using your techniques (skills) during battle is a very crucial option during battle, this takes up your energy, but the techniques generally are stronger and more advanced then your regular attack.
