T H E S T O R Y

Ruby wakes up inside of a strange metal locker. She realizes she cannot remember most of anything. As she steps out, Ruby gets the feeling something is very wrong about her surroundings. Broken plaster and paint chips scattered on the ground all around her, she shakily begins her quest to ascend from the metal bowels she has been thrust into.

It soon becomes apparent that she is not the only one lost and that she may even have some sort of dark history in this strange place.

Ruby Quest: Undertow is a personal rendition of the choose-your-own-adventure originally conceived by alias Weaver. It will feature additional scenarios/lore as well as changes to the storyline. One of the defining differences is that certain characters will play a bigger part in the dark tales of the Metal Glen, and most characters will become more personalized, as the source hardly tapped into actual spoken dialogue. A lot of moments from the original will still be implemented into the game.

The game sports an oblique perspective in the aesthetics department and completely custom, original graphics. There will be many different animations for characters and some cutscenes will consist of pictures.

Among the gameplay elements in Undertow are puzzles, exploration, fighting, and running for your fragile life. The Glen is filled with danger and invites you to brave them all. Prepare yourself for a unique horror experience from the developer of Death Proclaimed, the developer of The Longing Ribbon, and the developer of Home.

Guys, you may want to have a look at the CSS, some of the text on this page is black on black and therefore unreadable. Like your names, and the engine and genre etc. Also your centring has made the navigation bar with 'summary/blog/images' centred

Nope, looks like this, it's black on slightly lighter black.


I'm going to clear my cache and then pop back and see if that makes a difference

Edit: Yep, that did it, all good and white now.

This game is going to be so cute.
Hm, interesting. Does Weaver know about this?

Edit: Oh, also, you may find this to be of interest if you aren't aware of it already.

I've informed him right when I started doing artwork that I'd be trying my hand at a game and he allowed me to. Didn't hear anything from him after that. I don't know if he's seen any of the actual screenshots of the game.
Checking the game pages...
Oh hey! A game with Ruby Quest in the title! Sounds like that thing I re-
WAIT, did it say rabbit
*checks page*
Oh ok it's actually refering TO Ruby Quest, iz not some sort of spooky coincidence.

Why not? Is the word Rabbit such a bad word? o 3o.

I sense passive-aggressiveness in this post, or you missed that this is a reimagining of the source material.

are they referring to the silly water cooler that oddly enough has a large amount of fan art? Could be possible.

The original made a point of never acknowledging the anthro aspect. Changing that marks a pretty significant divergence from the source material, since it's adding an entirely new artistic element that wasn't there before. Though understandable for a more detailed rendition where the character designs will be harder to just ignore, it is understandable if some people are confused.

There are plenty more aspects in this rendition that will stray from the original, including additional elements in the main storyline. The point here is not to make a replica. The sooner that people understand this, the better. I want to call this a homage, since I love the original either way, but I understand if people will remain skeptical of that.

Anyway, I would really hope people don't brush the game aside because of this, as we're working hard to make this a unique and enjoyable horror experience.
