Hi, welcome to my project. Soulwake is a 2d action rpg that plays in the top down perspective, with a strong focus on themes such as horror, medieval and celtic lore, romance, and death. It is an interactive vampire chronicle with a sense of realism and old school nostalgia from the days of vintage entertainment. A saga of love, heartbreak, and pure fear that will play through multiple titles.

The first book is called Soulwake and will feature 8 bit graphics.

The style and feel of this game is similar to elements found in classics like:

- Sweet Home, NES
- Crystalis, NES
- Radia Senki (Chronicle of the Radia War), NES
- Zelda: A Link to the Past


It's a really big project, so the storyline, graphics, and descriptions will update as I develop.

Hope you like it and please comment!

It started off good but then it kept going. Like you went past the point of being cryptic and enigmatic.

It got boring and you weren't separating the concepts very well.
A Palace somewhere. A wizard in a tower. A fortress with an army. A Shadow portal.
The ideas all blend together. Like in reverse it sounds like
"Across a portal, in a shadowland, marches a legion army manifested by a sleeping demon, summoned by a wizard in a tower, that's part of a magic-machine palace fortress."
"Age of the Vampire" is just shoehorned in there before "A witch casting a spell on humanity you are ready for battle"
That last part seemed like a run on sentence because of the way it's presented. But it was at that point I realized this was suppose to be some kind of montage of separate things - and I had to go back and watch it again.

Maybe you should start by clarifying that this isn't one thing happening, but many obstacles to overcome. And more importantly, bring it all together by explaining why you're going to face them.
take this for example

Thanks for the critique, I have edited the dialogue, dropping and adding to blend the ideas better. I am trying to express the vision starting from the outlook of the player and progressing inward toward the heart of the evil I am describing. It seems to mesh smoother now, it was difficult because I had tons of ideas I wanted to share.

No problem! It will be a very long time until completion but I would love to have a demo out next year, that plays up to the completion of the 2nd Dungeon/Boss and here is the current roadmap up to that goal..

* Original Soundtrack

* Finding SFX earcandy

* Player HP/ MP/Weapon/Item GUI (Graphical User Interface)

* Sprites
-Friendly NPCS
-Enemy NPCS
-Player attack and skill animations

* Tilesets
- Forest A
- Interior Houses, at least 5 styles
- Level 1 Dungeon: 1 underground section of the giant labyrinth like tunnel system
- Level 2 Dungeon: Haunted mansion interior and exterior

* Overworld Tilesets (3d Mode, Example: Secret of Mana / Final Fantasy 6)
- Peppershire
- Nicothema

* Game Engine
- Must decide if I should use IG Maker or drop all RTP graphics for Gamemaker!

I'm certainly interested and would be completely down to follow the progress of this project. The way it's written is fun to read so I look forward to the game's writing as well.

Thanks mahed, well I'm back after a few months. I had to take a break from developing but I'm back with some new updates.

The storyline and character descriptions have much better, smoother dialogue than before. Very easy read and I've included several characters profile images to give a better feel of the world, but I eventually want to get a professional for at least the character art.

I also added new worlds and descriptions to read, so be sure to check it out! Soulwake is a very big project, but it is a part-time hobby. Right now my focus is completing my vision for the characters, including several more profile images. This gives me more inspiration and something visual to share with the players. It will give me something more solid to work with. Thanks again for the support!
