About the game
FADE is a direct sequel to my first game, BETA. The story picks up shortly after the ending event from the first game, and continues to build on the established main characters from the first game, as well as introduce new characters later on in the game. It is not required to have played the first game, though.
FADE stands for Fun, Adventure, Danger and Excitement. These are the 4 key-words that are the basis of my game.
- Fun - The most important aspect of my game. It's supposed to be fun, and funny as well.
- Adventure - The game revolves around the player going on an adventure. To explore places, and to meet people within the game world.
- Danger - There will be villains. There will be treacherous locations. There will be challenges for the player to overcome.
- Excitement - The game must offer enough variety in action, fun, story, everything to keep the player interested.
Planned features: - (subject to change)
- A fun story, with lighthearted dialogue
- Several different characters to join your party over the course of the game
- A simple, yet deep, turn-based combat system
- Equipment changing the looks of your character sprites and facesets
- Several dungeons to explore
- A variety of out-of-combat minigames, challenges and puzzles
- Signposts readable from any direction!
Even though FADE is a sequel, it is absolutely not required to have played BETA in order to enjoy, or to understand what's going on in the game.
For those who have played the first game, there'll be an option before the game starts to fill in the actions and choices you have made in the first game. Those choices will carry over to stuff that happens in the second game. Example: If you got to befriend Eldin in the first game, she will be your friend in this game.
Plot & Main characters
After helping the people in Beta town, Roth was rewarded with a huge airship, made by the scientist. Together with his li'l bro, Thieme, and his best buddy, Rage, the three of them have set out on an adventure! Not long after departing, they pick up Eldin, a friendly girl from Beta Town. She has lived most of her life in her parent's house, and has always dreamed of going on an adventure.
Suddenly, the Prince of Darkness appears! He doesn't appreciate the group of adventurers flying around that close to his home, and launches an attack on the party and the airship. The chaos summoned by the Prince of Darkness causes heavy damage to the airship, forcing it into making a crash landing. It is there where the real adventure starts... (dun dun dun!)
ROTH - THE THUNDERGOD
Roth is the game's main character. He's the leader of the Battler trio, and a pretty relaxed guy with a witty attitude most of the time. In battle, Roth controls the powers of lightning and electricity to shock his foes.
THIEME - THE KINGPIN
Thieme is Roth's younger brother. He likes to sleep, a lot. Besides sleeping, Thieme is interested in exploring the unknown, learning new things, and meeting people from other parts of the world. In battle, Thieme uses the power of earth to do his bidding.
RAGE - THE DRAGOON
Best buddy of both Roth and Thieme. Rage is a cool guy, a hothead, and has a heart of gold. He likes to act all big and bad, but everyone knows he has a soft side too, specifically for women. In battle, Rage likes to turn up the heat, using fire and flames.
ELDIN - THE LADY
Having lived most of her life inside her parent's house, Eldin has always dreamed of going on an adventure. Her time has finally come to do so. Eldin is a friendly person, with a positive outlook on life. In battle, Eldin wields the powers of light to smite her foes and to protect her friends.
PRINCE OF DARKNESS
The Prince of Darkness lives in the Castle of Darkness, located in the Shadepeak Mountains. It is there where he plots his next evil plan. Some of the things he dislikes are RPG Adventurers, people who mispronounce his real name, and finding hairs in his soup.
The current demo for the game is around 3-4 hours long.
As the game is still in development, and subject to change, a complete list of credits will be added once the game is completely finished.
Savancaya, the volcano serpent. Protected by a thick layer of volcanic rock during the first phase of the battle.
