Lenin is an albino lion, the only one of his kind, and because of this he feels insecure and constantly discouraged. In fact, Lenin caters to all the symptoms of depression. Worse, his mother does not understand why his son was born that way, and the whole village despises him and treats him cruelly. At school, he suffers bullying and can not concentrate on class.

Now, hopeless about life, certain situations seem to awaken in Lenin something that is not of everyone’s reality, but only of his. Something he will discover to be the “Realm of Depression”.

In this place, Lenin will find other species of animals representing his symptoms, which may help him to understand himself.

However, the realm is dangerous, and may also become the final step that Lenin seeks to give out of his suffering…

Traveling between reality and the Realm of Depression, Lenin will have to face his inner fears and enemies - and often, the outer ones as well.

While Lenin's heavy day-to-day atmosphere is consuming him and proving to be bad in a lot of ways, Lenin realizes that his countrymen seem to be snobbish and at the same time worry about superfluous things. The constancy of these attitudes arouses more and more characteristics of depression in Lenin's personality, which is the key to finding the way out or the bottom of the pit to his symptoms.


Lenin and his mother.

Lenin is the main character of the game and the only one playable.
His mother is an erased figure and without many good thoughts. Constantly sad, she doesn't understand her son's situation and can only feel sorry for herself. Her interactions with Lenin are always very dry and fast, as if they were strangers.​



MENU
Well, this style of limited items pleases me more than long, stuffed inventories of heavy and disjointed things.

Another cool thing is that Lenin’s backpack is his Menu, and he can only access it if the backpack is in his possession! So be very careful with it, okay?

Ordinary Items have optional functions for the plot and for in-game situations. In fact, some may be important, but they will never be crucial to the progress of the game.

As is customary, Key Items are those required for certain actions within the game, taking the character to the next parts of the story.
In addition, Lenin may have one equipment in possession at a time - which is not only necessarily for battles, but for situations in which he must use it.

Besides these items, it looks like there’s something else in the backpack, right? Well, maybe those Keychains are something cool to have in the game - and who knows, maybe even important!​

CHOICES
It’s not from today that a game offers options in a conversation and this may change some lines and the end of a dialogue, and in some cases, the course of the game on some level.

The crucial difference in Lenin is that ALL options modify his profile.

From the firsts scenes of interaction certain variables come into play to determine if Lenin is a more unbelieving or hopeful person. However, the lines are not obvious like “curse your mother or hug her,” but rather, as in the example below.

Hmm, hard to choose, right?

Also it’s important to note that many of the actions are irrevocable, so think carefully before making a decision or delivering an item to someone or something.

Make your own NPC in Lenin - The Lion!



First I’m bringing to you this little creation in pixel art of one of the characters of Lenin - The Lion. Well, it’s a vulture. But it’s a fancy vulture, you know that. haha. >.<

This character is from the Realm of Depression, but it’s not necessarily a Symptom (I’ll not reveal it yet - SO MUCH MYSTERY around this creature D: ).

But I’ll give you guys some tips about its location in the Realm of Depression:

  • The character is a bit lonely, and his house is very lonely as well.

  • He has a lot of money, but he sees no benefits in it.

  • Despite being envied by many, he is always seeing flaws in the things he has.

  • There is no fun in leaving home too.


So, do you know the place in the Realm of Depression where this little guy lives?

If you are the first to find out what the symptom’s place of the Realm of Depression where that little vulture lives, that is, what the symptom that the city / town / village it is, taking into account the advice I gave, you will earn the right to a NPC character in the game in a secret area! YEEES! That’s it. The only restriction is that the character is also an animal, meets the criteria of the region’s symptom where it will be (we’ll talk about it, no worries) and does not interfere with the main story of the game!

Those who want to participate should share the post of this event in Tumblr (just give like in the post doesn’t count), follow Lenin - The Lion (Tumblr) and send the answer by inbox (here or in Tumblr).

Each one is entitled to TWO replies per inbox, not more than that!
Keep in mind that you must respond “What symptom does the LOCAL where he lives represent?”

If anyone gets it right until next week, I’ll reveal the answer next Saturday.

I’m very excited about this “promotion” and I hope you do too.
So send your answers inbox!

See you guys!

Thank you so much, Meaka! You're one of the most dedicated fans (I can call you a fan, huh?). I've already become a fan of you being a fan of the game (lol I'll stop with the fan stuff).
OMG I was so happy to see this game show up in rmn dude. I followed you on tumblr and this page looks awesome too! I'm really excited to see the progress of this game, as depression is pretty personal for myself too, so it's really cool to see a game that dives right into that realm. Literally. Lol but yeah great concept great art great choices great characters and guh I just like this okay I'll stop rambling.

Hahaha Thank you Miremira! I'm so glad that this project touched your feelings (really!). I hope to not disappoint with the gameplay too.

If you follow the Tumblr, try to participate to the little "event" that I'm doing. Not many people are participating yet, so it may be a good thing for you! :)
I just commented on your TIGSource devlog, but I forgot to mention that I like the characters, especially the design and walking animation of the elephant one! :)

I just saw your comment on TIGSource and I answered it! Ty for the tips :)
I'm glad that you like teh design, it's something that I put a lot of effort.
Hope you follow the project.

For the others, a screenshot for the last post in Tumblr:


This seems very promising.
What about let's players who'll edit this to add their own little bit of self into the game? I'm asking for my friend Rain, since he's rather shy, even on the internet.

What exactly do you mean by "What about let's players who'll edit this to add their own little bit of self into the game?"?
In the game there is no personalization of the character or anything, but rather choices of the path to be followed by Lenin. Is that what you asked? Sorry if I got it wrong!

By the way, I also uploaded the official poster of the game! So take a look :)

My bad, english isn't my strong language, I meant:
"Some let's players edit footage of the game, I don't mean in game personalisation, I mean: They record the audio, and them playing, and then they edit certain features, -like in Sony Vegas-, like, for example, I'm not even sure if this pertains to you: "Oh, this area has really repetitive bad music, I should change it a bit. 'Edits the song: 'The Red Coronation' during really epic game story climax'"."
There. Not to the point of changing your vision of Lenin completely, this is mostly for personal taste, I'm not dissing your choices, but some game developers don't exactly have a taste in music that includes more than 1 song. That doesn't necessarily apply to you, but if I were you, I would rather know it someone was about to play my game, and was then probably going to edit something.
P.s. I checked out the official poster, and Lenin's super cute~

Oh, I guess I understood. It's like to get opinions from players and other devs? Or I'm still getting it wrong? If that is the case: of course. I'm completely open for opinions about the songs, gameplay (when available) and even the script itself (I mean, if someone wants to say "this part needs a improvement" or something like that, there's no problem at all. Also, if who plays wants to record the game, talk about it, etc, its completely cool too!

I hope I've answered you!

Changing the focus a bit, I edited the main topic to put the Lenin's Theme, that is the song below:
