I spent a bit more time working on Memories tonight. As I said in my last post, I need to work on the characters and plot and pretty much everything else in the game other than the maps. I have a very rough idea of a plot for this game already, but it needs to be fleshed out. And for that I need a better idea of the characters.
I don’t have names or even more than a rough idea of what the characters might look like. What I do have right now is the fact that the main (or at least most important) characters right now are a set of twin sisters and a wizard. One of the sisters is the protagonist/player character. She/you will be saving the other sister from the wizard. Oh I also know that I want to give this game a sort of fairy tale feel. I’m not sure how exactly I’ll be pulling that off yet, but I’m pretty sure the game is going to involve heart magic. Think Once Upon a Time, like this scene from the first season:
Tonight didn’t involve a whole lot of writing (and neither did last night, when I discovered that heart story I linked to in my last post). But there was a fair bit of brainstorming and researching random things online, like heart symbolism, fairy tale witches, and the like. In the middle of all of this, I managed to come up with a bit of the backstory that leads to the beginning of the game, so that’s good. Hopefully I’ll be able to get more fleshed out soon!
