Savior StoryI'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.
