It’s been a long time since I last wrote a post in this blog. I’ve been pretty much working on the upcoming release of Winged: The Unraveling which, in turn, caused delays to other stuff that I’ve been keeping myself busy on. Anyways, this post isn’t about the upcoming book sequel, nor is it about the other book I’m writing. No. This one is about a project of a different kind.
This is about a videogame project–a simple one (though I use that term loosely)–that I plan to do on my “spare” time (apart from all the other things I intend to do with it).
The title of the game I will be working on is Imaji: A Realm Reborn. It will be for the PC (though I will try to port it for android devices (as much as I would like it ported over to iOS devices, I don’t have the stuff needed for me to be able to do that. And by “stuff”, I meant a Mac computer)) and will be a building-simulation roleplaying game. The details are still pretty sketchy and I will update more as I smooth things out but, basically, the premise of the game is as follows:
The Kingdom of Imaji was a beautiful kingdom, ruled by a wise and noble king. The people of Imaji loved their king and flourished under his governance. There was peace and tranquility and all throughout the kingdom everyone was happy.
Then, one day, while on a quest to expand his kingdom, the King of Imaji disappeared. Those who were with him didn’t know what had happened, only that he was gone–vanished without a trace. With the king’s disappearance, the Kingdom of Imaji was left under the care of his son. The young prince was gifted with the same wisdom and courage as his father, and was able to keep the kingdom together in his father’s absence. But, the peace didn’t last long.
On the eve of the young prince’s eighteenth birthday, the castle was suddenly besieged by darkness. Monstrous creatures appeared, led by a masked man, and forced the young prince to flee. Together with his most trusted friend and adviser, and a few handful knights, the young prince managed to escape and sought refuge at the farthest uninhabited part of the kingdom.
Having lost his father’s kingdom–and with the people of Imaji being held captive by the masked man and his demon horde–the young prince vowed to reclaim all that was taken from him, and rid Imaji of the darkness that had settled in it.
So, basically, you are the prince who must muster enough forces to take back the lost kingdom. But, since the prince is left with nothing but ten knights and his adviser, he first needs to make himself a fortress, expand his reach, save his people, and recruit knights–all of which (and more) you will be able to do in this game.
I’m still trying to iron out a few things before I release screenshots and a more in-depth post about this game so it might take a while but it isn’t as complicated as it seems. This is also a 2D game, for those who are wondering.
Anyways, that’s it for now.
Until the next update, dream on; fly on!
