THIS GAME DEALS WITH THEMES OF RAPE AND HAS GRAPHIC CONTENT AND IMAGERY.
(No nudity or anything pornographic)


Anonymous Agony is an episodic, modern, story based adventure game.

Anonymous Agony follows the parallel stories of a serial killer named Haze Stratos and a child psychologist named James Samson who is tasked with tending to Haze's sister Clara, who was a victim of a sexual assault.

During the Haze Stratos sections, players will engage in simulated chat rooms, and take on the role of a serial killer and attempt to evade the police, during the James Samson sections, players will learn real psychology lessons and engage in simulated psychology sessions and be tasked with helping other people.

The story will switch back and forth between both sides of the story with each episode.




Haze and Clara don't have the best parents in the world, between their regular drug dealings, and other shady activity, but despite this, Haze and Clara
go on living. Haze, an eighteen year old punk just starting starting to grow
up holds a deep bitterness for the world as well as his parents. He tries to protect his sister from the evil in the world he has experienced first hand. Clara, a ten year old girl just starting middle school that's very grown up for her age spends most of her free time online chatting with friends.

One day, Haze returns home to find that his younger sister has been raped, Haze discovers soon after that it was by a person she had been talking to online. After much strife, Clara is sent to a mental hospital to recover, Haze begins using his sister's online screen name to lure out other internet predators in hopes of, in his own way, getting revenge on the world.

Anonymous Agony follows the parallel Stories of Haze and Clara.
As Clara heals and heads towards eventual recovery, Haze heads towards his own downfall.

Anonymous Agony re-formed.

Anonymous Agony is no longer an Episodic game. Producing a game the length of the original plan would be far too ambitious since the loss of some team members that could not work on the game.

Anonymous Agony will now be a single game the length of 20-25 hours. The equivalent of 5 of the original length episodes. We're recruiting help of course, most of the original material is already complete, and the positions will be payed.

We need illustration artists, eventers, and level designers.

Huh.

This looks almost like a vigilante version of Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer.

The stock RPG maker toolset kinda clashes with the gritty/modern thing the story has going, but any game that tries to do gritty and modern with RPG maker is going to run into that problem.

The premise is interesting, but feels a little like emotional overkill if you just say everything right at the start. Maybe hold off on revealing that something terrible happened to Clara until after Haze has tracked down a few victims? It puts the reader in the uncomfortable position of starting to sympathize with him.

This doesn't necessarily look like my cup of tea, but anyone who'll outright say "hey, we're going commercial with this" on rmn has got moxie.

Oh shit. I missed that. I was too distracted by the pretty pictures.
This game looks awesome! I need to play it!
looks good but the story is really adult oriented, i feel... perturbed to find out a young 10 years old was raped... might give it a shot as well...
@Bakutex I agree that the subject matter is adult oriented in nature, but my problem is that the game seems rather light hearted from what I've seen with regards to the gameplay footage so far.

If it takes place before the rape and everything afterwards would adopt a more serious tone, then yeah I can see how that can work. However if it was to maintain it's whimsical nature through to the bitter end then I would find it distasteful in that respect.

On the other hand, if the game remains whimsical it might well throw the seriousness of the situation into sharp relief by contrast. And are you saying we can't have fun avenging "our" little sister as we play the game? That's no fun. Remember, our hero's a bit psycho- why not enjoy the ride?

Kumada, you speak like this is a bad thing. Sometimes the greatest art lies in taking us places we'd rather not go. And does it do such harm to sympathize, to empathize, to recognize ourselves in them, and they in us? For we all have a capacity for darkness. . .
*Watches trailer* Wow.
This game looks really good I can't wait to play it
Thanks all your supportive words guys! I'm certainly listening to all of it! =)
Story sounds intriguing. I wonder if it would make a good lets play =3. I am new to this site so I am hoping if I sub it will let me know when you finish with the first episode/file. Either way I'll try to keep my eye on this. G'luck and make it good =)
I am going to record this for my channel to give this a serious review. Hopefully if all bodes well I can get a couple of more gamers this way. I love games with dark themed stories. I just hope it isn't too harsh.

Good luck with your story, and may it be unique, and unlike anything before it.

issues/dislikes yeah know

dislikes
characters
blond cop-finding someone weird because they care about others.he is in the wrong job line.
Dad-how he acted when they got back home
Mom-everything about this character
Car scene mom-how she changed the subject after being asked a question like it never happened.

Issues
miner-when i was in full screen,game would minimize when it gets to the part where Haze signs into his sisters comp(no idea why but its something game related as this happened 5 times)

a bit annoying sometimes when i loaded the game(i had to go thru i a few times for various reasons)
the text would be small,sharp and hard to read like old school computer
this appears random.
Note i only have the UmePlus Gothic font installed,i installed the others but didnt seem to fix it. or change the text for me in this file.

currently uploading the game to YT and will give a link to this thread and credits to you in the description
but due to the style of game.i more suggest people try it then watch video for it.
cant w8 for more parts!
We're sitting on the completed first episode guys!
You all got a 6 hour episode in-coming!

Check the last blog post for a reason for the delays!

Lato, you were let go. Your spriting ability could not come close to doing what we needed. You can't warn someone on being let go, you didn't do close to enough to warrant pay, you minorily edited a few sprites.

Since you wanted to post openly, I will as well. I highly suggest no one hires Lato for sprite work, he lacks good ability to follow directions and does not have good team attitude.
Hey Lato, I'm looking for a spriter! If you do end up sucking, I'll still give you severance pay for your time =)
