Savior Story

I'm currently building a game called Savior Story using RPG Maker VX Ace. I plan to tell the story from the perspective of the player reading a book. It'll follow a character named Micah, a shop clerk (my avatar on Gaia is based on this character) who becomes involved in a struggle against the antagonist, intended to be a crime lord. The 4 main characters are based on myself, my wife (Song for God), my cousin (Message from God) and his wife (Grace from God). They will be Christians. I intend to use character interactions not only to build my story but also to demonstrate presuppositional apologetics and share the Gospel.

This game will have a western/fantasy setting (maybe some steampunk, too). I want to make a game that is actually a game, like actually entertaining. Basically, I want to have an actual battle system (yes, with actual weapons and actual monsters to fight) and an actual story, the game working just like a regular RPG. My biggest difference is going to be the difference of worldviews. Instead of arbitrary moral claims as you see in many RPGs, my characters will have a basis for morality. Instead of knowledge claims with no basis, my characters will have a basis for knowledge. The interactions can demonstrate contradictions in opposing worldviews and point people to Jesus Christ, the only way any man can be saved.

I intend to put many solid Biblical resources into the game as items that can be viewed if you wish to, so you can learn more if you're interested. Please, brothers and sisters, pray for me on this entire issue, as I want to glorify Christ with this. It takes a lot of time, even using RPG Maker, and I also don't want this to be an idol for me. Any prayers from the saints are greatly appreciated.

By the way, I do have a working demo, if you wanna try it out. Don't expect much from it, though. It doesn't contain all of the skills, level cap is 5, there is no story or explanation on how anything works, apart from item and skill descriptions. It was a "quick and easy" demo, to demonstrate graphics, gameplay, music, etc. so people know what to expect. Enemies don't even fight you unless you touch them, which is fixed now, but totally not in the demo.

I plan to release a proper demo eventually, complete with story up to whatever point the demo allows.

Want to know anything more about this project? Feel free to ask me.

That would be a thread for my game, if you're interested in checking out some stuff I'm doing/have scrapped.

I brought up Jonathan because, see, we have him added on Facebook, right? He just up and disappeared one day. Haven't spoken with him on anything for years now. Knowing Jonathan, he seemed to lean in a pretty ascetic direction, so perhaps he just dropped the internet? We also wondered if maybe he died. Regardless, I go on his Facebook page every now and then and say something, even now, and I pray for him sometimes.

Huh, that game sounds interesting. Good luck on it; it'd be cool to see something ambitious like that in RPG Maker.

I do remember Jonathan, but I haven't talked to him in ages. How's he been?

I've been doing well. Working at a grocery store FT (awesome setup, too, as I seriously live on the same block as where I work and can walk through an alley straight through the middle of the block, get to work in less than a minute: take that, people who say you NEED a vehicle nowadays!), making more money than we need (even if my wife doesn't work). We have little expenses and the place we live has a low cost of living (really, we pay $375 for rent). God has been very gracious to us in providing for us. We're used to living paycheck to paycheck, so it's nice to be able to live like this (though, God knows, we may go right back to paycheck to paycheck someday, like with Paul, how there were times he had much and times he had little).

I've been working on my game (though not as much as I'd like, mainly due to doing other things instead of just sitting down and working on it). RPG Maker MV comes out on the 23rd of this month, and some people made a plugin so we can move our data from our Ace projects onto the new MV. Looking forward to this. Plan to make the main character a shop clerk (based on me, so work is based on mine as well), and it'll have a western and fantasy theme to it. I've been quite influenced by Monster Hunter in making natural fantasy plants and monsters that would allow for characters to make/do things that are not realistic, so no magic is necessary (I make a distinction between witchcraft and fantasy magic, but I still prefer no magic, and I don't want confusion over that in a game world where the Bible can be believed in). Also have been influenced by Chrono Cross (at the very least in materials for equipment and elemental/status effect stuff), Fire Emblem (weapon triangle and chance to instantly defeat enemies), Resident Evil (herbs), Brave Fencer Musashi (you don't just walk into a stranger's home in my game, but knock on their doors and they come out and speak with you) and likely numerous other games and things in various ways I don't want to take the time to pinpoint (though I can't say what I did pinpoint is exhaustive). Haha.

Do you happen to remember Jonathan, by the way?

Oh, hey there. Really has been a while! I'm just working and living. What've you been up to?

There are two reasons I understand for this. One would be the holiness of God. Even among humans, the severity of a punishment for a crime can change based on the position of the person it's committed against. If you lie to your kid, your kid can't do much about it; lie to your wife, you may sleep on the couch; lie to the government, that can be jail time or a fine. Our crime is against an infinitely holy and perfect God, so the punishment is also eternal.

The second reason? If we hate God, why would that ever stop when we are in Hell? Man's heart is evil by nature, and a man will never come to God apart from God drawing him because a man will never WANT God apart from that work of regeneration, which the Holy Spirit performs when He changes a man's heart. The punishment would be eternal because the man eternally sins against God, not as one forced, but as one following exactly what he wants, despite the cost of that hatred and self-will.

Consider also the objection as a whole: no one deserves that. You're appealing to an arbitrary standard of morality when you say that. In your worldview, it's just as valid for me to say people do deserve that just as arbitrarily and without any Biblical basis, because it's all preference and opinion anyway. In my worldview, I have a standard by which I can say something is good or evil, wrong or right, true or false. The Bible gives me a rational basis to make claims to truth and certainty, which would include morality.

I understand why God doesn't just let anyone into heaven. He can't allow sins in his kingdom.

But why is ETERNAL TORMENT a just punishment? Nobody deserves that.
