Shinya by Lauris Kaplinski

Shinya is an adventure game set in fictional late Middle Ages (with some magic added). The main protagonist is twelve years old girl Sara, who is trying to find a way through sinister mysteries and intrigues happening in and around her hometown.
The game uses custom OpenGL engine that I am developing in parallel with Shinya (and it's sister project Khayyam). It has currently only modest set of advanced features but is progressing nicely with each iteration.
I am currently the only author, doing all programming, game design and modeling. This is the first serious game project for me, so I feel quite excited ;-)
The main motivation behind the project is partially a wish to re-create the feeling of some old classic games, like "Quest for Glory" series. The other part is my desire to experiment whether it is possible to make adventure game with female protagonist who is both lovable, intelligent and feminine.
