This project started out as an experiment to improve my mapping and try out my skills making fun and entertaining gameplay, and I almost instantly got hooked on my results and decided on making an actual game out of it. Fairytale
is not a RPG, although there are parts of the game that might suggest that it is. It's more similar to Zelda, an adventure-game with puzzle elements.Fairytale
follows the story of a young woman named Violet as she attempts to escape from the grasp of her wicked granduncle. When her parents mysteriously disappeared one night when she was only a child her granduncle took over the custody of Violet and her three sisters. Her granduncle had been living in his small house (that he liked to call Fairytale) in his own, private woods his entire life and never had any real connection with the outside-world. This had made him very unaware of what you can and can't do, and immediately tried to take control over the young girls to his own winning.
They had to work for him all day without anything in return, and was senselessly beaten if done wrong in any way. One after one they had tried to escape, with devastating results, until only Violet remained of the four sisters. Even though she was aware of the past results she had to try. She would die from all the work and punishments anyway, at least she had a chance of survival.
Violet has already succeeded with one part of the escape. You've already escaped from your uncle's house, and now you're the one who's going to lead Violet further until she's finally free. Perhaps you'll even uncover the unsolved mysteries of your missing parents. Are they alive, or are they lost forever?Violet (age 27):
Our young protagonist who has been striving for true happiness for her whole life. She hasn't experienced much true happiness in her life, but deep within she feels the joy from her early childhood and realizes that there's more to life than the work she has endured for so long. Violet is a very shy person, and never speaks unless she feels entirely safe. She must be absolutely sure that no one can harm her before she decides to express herself. She's also very vulnerable in new situations and often loses control completely. Her sisters are often there to calm her down, though."The Uncle" (unknown age):
A very old man who has lived in his small house in Fairytale Forest for his whole life. For every year away from society his mind has become more and more twisted, and that in turn lead to unwanted consequences that affected the few around him. He had only had access to information through a few, old books in his house, most of them were fairytales about witches for example. Uneducated as he is he started to think that his very own relatives also were witches which very soon ended in disaster for Violet and her three sisters.The Three Sisters (Petal, age 30 | Daisy, age 28 | Clover, age 24):
Violet's three sisters (Petal, Daisy and Clover) have also been enduring the tyranny of their granduncle, even to the death. However, as Violet begins her escape they can communicate with her through her dreams and sometimes even appear as ghosts in the real world to aid her. They see Violet as a last resort to finally defeat their wicked granduncle and take him down before doing even more harm to other people.
Petal is a person who is fascinated by the wonders of nature and all it has to offer. For most people this fascination fades out with age but considering the small amount of time Petal gets to spend outside there's rarely nothing new to discover each time. She likes writing short books in the form of tales or fables, especially about her imaginary character Lady Tranquility
and her magic garden that instead of requiring light to grow needs darkness. Though Petal died at the age of 30 she never quite grew up.
Daisy is a very protective person and truly cares about all her sisters, and especially Violet nowadays since she's the only one still alive. When Violet doubts her strength Daisy's the one who most of the time can be of help. Daisy is a nice person, at least to those who treats her the same way. She isn't afraid to question people with higher authority than herself, which has cost her a lot over the years.
Clover doesn't talk much, much like her sister Violet, but she can be of much help. She can help Violet find her way through a blizzard (oops, spoiler
) for example and a lot of other small but very helpful things.* Chapter-based linear story with 4-5 chapters planned and perhaps some kind of epilogue in the end. Each chapter will be at least one hour long.
* Many puzzles and mini-games to make the experience as interesting as possible at all times.
* Uses Mr. Anonymous' fantastic RGSS2+ system (which means 640x480 resolution, different menu-system and more).MORE SCREENSHOTS:DOWNLOAD (35,6 MB, NO RTP Included)Includes Chapter One, v. 1.01
Full credits is in the game. Thanks for your attention!
