Quick informing post on Parteon:
The first build is ready, you can download it here:
I finished with setting the HUD sections, battle system and basic game mechanics. From here updates finally going to be mostly about content (new levels, enemies, items and continuation of the story, etc.).
Now back to work…
I’ll point out that there is no karma points in the game, but in the way of visual novels, the karma system is actually there. Your choice of actions will have consequences. Some of the choices is not that one-sided as it may seem. Like if you’ll give a sick drunk bum a large amount of money for a valuable information, he will die of alcohol poisoning soon after and will give you nothing. So you need to look at the circumstances first.
You’ll get a hints maybe, but that’s the field where the game will not going to hold your hand and lead you through it, everything you do here is on you.
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.
The game will have turn-based battle system. I kinda didn’t like the MV’s battlers as well as its chibies, so i drew my own.
You can check it in a DEMO by open this link:
WARNING, Headphone users!
The Demos in browsers can have delays in performance!
It’s not re-configured from standard MV interface yet. But it’s enough to have an idea of what to expect.
These events will be happening in the beginning of the game, so this is not going to be much of a spoiler. Soon after you encounter Merlin the wizard, this little slut can be your companion for the whole game. Which is pretty much makes her the second main character of the story.
I planned a bunch of quests relating to Lola, all of them, exept one, will not be triggered as active if you’ll decide to leave her in the village. At the time being she’s the only character whose affection meter towards Hades increases by watching his actions and choices in someone else’s dialogues. So, if you planning sexin’ her, you won’t be able to do it, if she’s not around.
Lola is a very opened girl for sex and if we going to stick with her personality, she doesn’t really requires any affection from her side to fuck a guy like Hades. But she’s not going to jump on his cock, because of the spoilers. And having sex with her gives you a very valuable perk, so the game needs a player to work for it.
Also because of the spoilers she’s a beginner mage now. Being a good healer, Lola is pretty useful in battle right from the moment you got her. My advise is not to pass on her and start leveling her skills up as soon as possible.
