Parallel follows the story of Layla and Landis, two strangers on a quest to obtain a mysterious object they refer to as It. They know "It"'s location, in the hands of Hazella, mayor of Hillshire. But their quest goes far beyond a search when they learn the only way to obtain It from Hazella is to find the person who stole one of the town's treasures, a statue of Hillshire's founder.

What at first seems like a straightforward case is quickly turned on its head by an object that can transfer the holder into an entirely different dimension, one in which every citizen is a monster that potentially could have committed the crime. More and more objects are being stolen, and the crimes extend to both dimensions.

Who is the thief? What is their motive? What is this magical object? Where did it come from? What is "It"? Why do Layla and Landis want it?

Find out in Parallel!

Your plot sounds really confusing.
Which bits? I'm more than happy to clarify some stuff and straighten it all out.
Actually it sounds pretty straightforward to me. My only gripe is that it doesn't sound very exciting. But looks can be deceiving! Parallel worlds always make a good premise for a video game.
Well I'll be trying to make it as exciting as possible. There are a lot of places you can go with magic and mystery.

Yeah, the parallel worlds thing is probably a bit cliche, but the idea stemmed more from the idea of friendly monsters. ^_^
I appreciate your offer to help straighten it out for me Pokemaniac, but my point is that it might be best to, rather than give a whole synopsis, just a quick little movie trailer type thing to get people interested. They'll figure out the plot on their own.

It's not like FFX posts the different character bios, half of the plot synopsis, and description of gameplay on the back of the box. They just put some pics of Tidus and Yuna and say "In a world of magic" or something like that.

rmxp rtp my old friend, we meet again
@Relyt- I tried to keep it short while getting some important stuff out there. I mean this really is a very brief outline- it has nothing in the way of details of the crime. Can you suggest to me where I should trim down?

@tardis- Every idea I've had has been killed by custom graphics.
Wow Pokemaniac, your game seems very intriguing. I do hope it gets finished before the New Year.
Haha, thanks bvsveera. Before the New Year may be too soon but before the end of the holidays I can all but promise.

If anybody has any gripes with the little content my gamepage holds, please tell me. It not only gives me further insight into gamemaking techniques, but it improves the game and also keeps my gamepage up higher on the list so more critiques can fall on open ears.
You know who i am and i must say if your reading this your not working on your game and my distraction is succeeding. Yes right now even as you read this words that for some you cant tear yourself from reading you are wasting time. All you are doing is reading pointless spam dude so get to work. I mean honestly if this is all i have to do to slow you down u will never finish by december and if you dont finish by then the distracting present im gonna get you will do my job for me. Eventually you will just forfit the idea of ever completing a game and sinking into mediocrity. Maybe you should get back to work now. But then again my comment is so very interesting. So whats it gonna be. Why would you do something like this man. If i was making a game by now id be like dude im gonna stop reading your message now. But then again thats just me. I wonder what ill be having for dinner tonight. See your still reading my trivial crap. Ahhh well I guess thats how it rolls. Well id say iv wasting anywhere between 15-30 seconds now so good bye.
I would just like to say that I prefer not to associate myself with people of this lacking intelligence level.
