pict_12_hades A few words about protagonist of the game.

Like Princess Trainer’s Genie, in TDLT Hades experienced transformation into a human. Along with that he got a permanent “pervert” perk that leads him to feel a huge predisposition for sex. Being a manipulator, Hades likes to achieve his goals playing mind games.

As the story goes, some of his dark powers stays with him after transformation – he will constantly take advantage by using it. Besides using magic in battle, he can look into a people souls to see their sins and dirty secrets. That covers a few elements in a game’s mechanic.

Although his personality is pretty much fits into a sin fest that happening in the game, I had a moment to consider what role he should take in a battle. That element I had to make up. Personally for me, originaly Hades looks more like a mage than a swordsman, but I have to roll with a “sword swinging mage” because it fits more in the course of adventure story. Beside that we have Lola, who is already a mage.

Also, the guy gives limitations, that feels wrong to deal with as I’m trying to stick with original personalities of characters. Like originaly he is always interrupts personal spaces of people he talkin with. It’s considerably shows his personalily in cartoons, which is hard to express in dialogues of a “visual novel” type of games. Not to mention the heavy use of gesticulation and walking around all the time while talking which is a scheming habbit of this “hard to image right dynamically” motherfucker.

I’ll point out that, unlike Genie with his arabic setting, TDLT protagonist’s affiliation to ancient Greek culture will not take place in the game much. Hades is far away from home for that.
