This is a project I've been working ever since 2009, and it won't be finished in a long time. Reason for this is the size of the story, and not to mention, I'm working on this all alone. Everything except for the music and sounds will be made by me.

> Technical information
I'm making the game with C++ and SDL-libraries. The game is 2D action/adventure game viewed from top-down view. Talking characters are seen as separate "talking heads", though they aren't animated.

Game's world is half open and half closed: you move forward from city to another, and in each of these cities you're able to move freely. Because of the story however, you may not be able to go back to the previous cities.

You play the game by running around, activating events and sometimes fighting against some characters and beasts. There's a separate Final Fantasy styled turn-based battlesystem for that too.

> World
The people in the game are living in a fictional planet called Alpisha, where it's always winter. In Alpisha there are no countries with their own cultures, but it's divided in 100 sectors. Not all sectors are dominated by winter, because there are sectors with volcanic activity (Volcano Sectors). Bad thing is, these sectors are surrounded by "Storm Rings", which make it difficult to travel from and in to these sectors. Some sectors - exactly 21 - are also completely taken by water (Sea Sector).

Despite the variety of sectors the winter's still the dominating season, and it's cold enough for people to have decided to live underground. There's also no personal vehicles like cars - except for some random snowledges and trucks - everyone uses the subway, airplanes and ships. Of course there is the option of just walking from city to another, but outside of the cities live bloodthirsty beasts, that even Alpisha's police "Global Guarding and Protection Unit" can't do much about.

> Story
The game tells the story of Mark Dwayne, a man that finds himself in middle of some little city - with no recollection of his past. He starts his journey to find his home-town, and 5 years later he arrives into the city of Coveridge.
Here he finds out he has supposedly murdered a friend of his, and that he's supposed to be dead from the punishment. He refuses to believe this and starts to investigate the case to prove his innocence, which starts an epic adventure of incredible proportions.

Works on Windows 7, but I think it should run on XP and Vista as well.

From the above link you can both download the demo, and play it straight from the browser. While playing it from browser though, saving won't work.

Updated the first post. I also changed from my handmade site to Blogger, it at least looks better for promoting this project.

Sorry I noticed this so late, I didn't really think anyone would pay attention.
