Hello, my name is Jara and I am making a game with around 15 others.
this is the first game I am making, but I am working on it for a year so I do have some experience. Me and my team have a lot of motivation to finish this game. Myself I help with writing and creature designs.

Even though this is my first game, I am planning to make a company if this game is succesful. My plan to keep everyone motivated to work on it even without much profit, is starting a donation pool after we've finished the arcade demo. We'll make 11 different games in total, at least that's the plan, and maybe a DLC with extra spells, equipment & weapons and an extra arcade mode. But we'll start with the arcade demo. The demo contains 2 characters and 3 modes. We haven't decided on the maps for the arcade yet. Here's my idea for the modes:

" we are going to make an arcade mode with options like PvP (1vs1, 2vs2, 4vs4 & free for all), an option where enemies come from 4 sides, and together you will have to protect your base, I have also been thinking of other ideas like adding an option of the game being all sidescroller and making it a race until the end where you can attack your opponents to prevent them from reaching the end and can also put out traps for them in the environment itself. We will start with making it so the player can connect through sharing IP adresses. "

We haven't been able to find a stable writer yet sadly, right now it's just me improvising the story. However, I feel like I can't manage to do this alone. I will need help filling in the blanks and connecting the story. Since there are 8 different games we'll have to make and each game has a different playable character and it's all happening at the same moment, we'll need to connect the stories to each other. If you are interested, please mail me and I will hand the stories I have so far over to you and the document with everything story and gameplay related in it (I always call it the "idk" document, since that's how I named the document).

As for animators, we have only two animators in the team now and I don't think it's enough considering how much animations we need.

I will give everyone who joins tasks, and recommend not looking too much at the big image. Focus on the task you are given on this right moment. don't worry about the future (like how many things there are still to do), I will take that stress on me, that's something for me to handle.

I will be able to give a short summary of the game and some screenshots, however I don't want to place too much information about the game on the internet. Not everything is fully polished yet in these screenshots. Some UI needs to be added, the artwork is for it already made but not placed in the game, so you won't be able to see it in the screenshots.

Please mail me for further information/specific questions.


Platform: PC.
Engine: Unity.
Language: C#.
Genre: Fantasy Action RPG.
Map: Isometric.

the game has 8 playable characters. each with a different element, weapon and story:
- girl1: light, sword and shield.
- girl2: poison, daggers.
- girl3: fire, katars.
- girl4: blood, scythe.
- girl5: nature, lance.
- girl6: ice, instruments.
- girl7: thunder, bow and arrow.
- girl8: dark, two handed sword.

The universe started with only one god: the space writer (Astrea) and the dragon of space and time rules over everything. Watching the world from far she dislikes the decisions the humans have made. Her whole idea was changed by her own creations. Astrea used to watch this one boy Weiss (time writer) having the same ideas and hopes for this world as her, she thought. He wanted to change it, though he couldn't since he didn’t have the power to do so. So Astrea gave him the powers of time. Together they hoped to make the world a better place. They started to grow a really close bond, until the time writer came up with this really bad idea to take free will from Astrea’s creations and control them. He never discussed this with Astrea, knowing she would disagree. In an attempt to stop the time writer’s plans, Astrea created (the boys), but all of their attempts failed, because the boys were too different from each other and didn’t want to work together. After a long time dwelling in the book for too long their memories scattered around the place (because memories are like energy). Unable to prevent the time writer from destroying her creations, she thought of one way to do it: she used all of her powers to create 8 girls and set up a path for them. But because she used up all of her power, she became exactly 8 different kinds of cloaks (the cloaked figures, not male or female). She used that to her advantage by guiding the girls to their destination. The boys just became "a distant past" for the space writer, still dwelling in the world while Astrea gave up on them. Even though Astrea forgot about them - considered them a failure - they still existed and decided to help the girls after figuring out what was going on. Their life seemed like a "vague memory" since they couldn't remember anything about what happened before they got into the book, because they were created as Astrea's soldiers. The cloaked figures guide the girls to escape the maze the time writer set up from them, by giving them 4 choices (doors) once in awhile. They need to find each other through this maze, because together they have the power to defeat him according to the cloaks. The first task the cloaked figure gives each girl is overcoming their fears.
