It's been ten years since the empire Ishtera made its move. At first, they were met with resistance: the three nations of Kuruk, Meropes and Anjan banded together to combat the imperial advance. However, after Anjan's surrender and subsequent alliance with the empire, Meropes was crushed. Kuruk's surrender was quick to follow.

Five years later, the Resistance is still alive and well in Kuruk. Despite going underground, a dedicated faction of the Resistance still works to defy Ishteran rule. Time is running out and the meager support they had in the public eye is quickly disappearing.

Julia Kendall, a young woman living on the outskirts of Kuruk, is part of that resistance. Raised in the town of Isin by her father, she has grown up despising the empire and wishes for nothing more than to be free of them. However, after a rebel mission gone wrong leads the empire to her doorstep, she is forced to leave her home and spring into action, beginning a journey that will ultimately reveal a bunch of stuff idk I'm real bad at synopses okay. Basically we get some magic and friendship and everyone has a great time.

------

Origin has been in the works for an embarrassingly long time and it is my love letter to the 90s jrpgs I grew up with! While it will follow the patterns of and pay tribute to games that I enjoyed as a kid (such as Final Fantasy 9, Chrono Trigger and others), I also want to use this project to turn a lot of those 90s jrpg tropes on their heads, hopefully offering a fresh look at some old concepts. It's relatively light-hearted and doesn't take itself seriously, but it still has some ~totally real~ moments that will warm your heart up faster than a spark warms a forest in the middle of July. ...is that a tasteless joke? I feel like that might be tasteless.

Anyway.

The main theme of this game (and also the reason for the title, aside from me picking a title I thought sounded cool back when I was 18) is examining where you've come from, and how that influences your future. It also looks at the choice of rejecting or accepting your origins, and how you can integrate that into your future. idk I'm real bad at describing the artsy schlock portion of my games but there it's in there amidst the shipping.

This game is also gay as hell! There are queer and trans folks literally everywhere, aka I don't think a single character is both cisgender and heterosexual. If that is A Problem With You, you should probably give this game a miss. Alternately, don't give it a miss and see if it changes your mind about LGBTQIA media! You might be glad you did.

I'm just a filthy GAME PUSHER is what I am, because PentagonBuddy and I are making a game for the IGMC this year! Click on the logo to go check it out~



there are less pixel dicks in that game than in Origin and for that I say I am sorry. either way that's what I'm currently busy working on and why there continues to be no news on this front

*emmych blatantly ignores fact that they have only been working on free spirits since July 7th and continues hoping you buy into their lies*

well alright if we want origin stuff, check out what penta drew for me when we hung out in june



DOES IT SATISFY YOU because it sure satisfies me with how unbearably in character and canon it is

pours one out...............
Ahahaha I guess it has been a Hot Minute, huh?

Alas, I made the move away from game dev and towards Taking My Clothes Off In Public, Writing Poetry, and Being A Filthy Academic ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

One day I would love to come back to game dev, but alas: that day is not this day. I'm progressing the Gay and Trans Agenda in other arenas these days! But thank you for thinking of this game, it really meant a lot to me how many folks were INVESTED in my vapourware, bahahaha. Who knows, though, maybe one day I'll scale back this project and make it. Maybe not. Fingers crossed that I do, I miss making games!


I'm still devoted to being a stan of the project so imma just be waiting patiently
Keep workin at it! >.<)b

today i learned that emmych is still working, and that inuyasha was a guy
@Luchi: heeeee thanks ;w;
A-and golly, has it really been that long? Yeesh, I need to step up my game a little. OTL
RL does suck quite a bit out of one's gam-mak ambitions. And making custom sprites is no walk in the park. But I'll wait for this... like I have been ever since February 2011 lol.
@Craze: Still in the works! I just work slow because I have a lot of Life Things that go on that get in the way. OTL
You'll get to play this one day, promise~

@nhubi: THAT'S IT THAT'S THE THING I WAS LOOKING FOR <3333
