Recently, I’ve begun devoting a lot more time to working on Imbroglio. The script is about… 15%-20% done. The main issue is that I have a bunch of main scenes written out and/or planned, but the stuff that takes place inbetween isn’t so clear-cut. Well, I’ll work it out someway or another.
ANYWAY! I finished the basic sprites for the protagonist and love interests, so I figured I’d post them up (they may get a little tweaking later, but they’re pretty much set for now):
Ganieda, the protagonist. She’s 20 at game start.
Gareth, one of the “romantic tradition route” love interests. He’s 18 at game start.
Palomides, the other “romantic tradition-route” love interest. He’s 24 at game start.
Mordred, one of the “old tradition-route” love interests. He’s 21 at game start.
Dinadan, the other “old tradition-route” love interest. He’s 27 at game start.
So yeah, there are two major story routes - one following the “romantic tradition”, which involves the Lancelot/Guinevere affair, and the other following the “old tradition”, which involves Arthur turning on Rome and conquering most of Europe. The “romantic tradition” also focuses on the ideal of knighthood, while the “old tradition” focuses on the reality (in other words, the old tradition story route is darker and a bit more brutal). There are other key differences, but that’s the main gist. Each story route has 2 potential love interests and you get to see things from both sides in the major conflicts (Lancelot/Arthur and Mordred/Arthur) by following different paths. By default, if your affection with the love interests isn’t high enough, you follow Arthur for the story route.
