Project Japan by Digital Pollutions.
First I want to introduce the team that is working on this game. We are four guys from Sweden and we are all 18 years old. In our school we have something called Projektarbete (roughly interpreted = Project work). The goal here is to work together with others and work like you do in real life. You’re able to choose your own project and we chose to make an adventure game. So now we have a whole school year too make a game and scheduled time to do it on!
We have assigned different tasks for everyone in the group, we have one Lead Storywriter who writes story, dialog and stuff like that (known on the forum as WeHoo). We have one Lead Programmer (known on the forum as Purra_H), one Lead Designer (that’s me) and one Lead Director (Jo.Walter)
Ok that’s enough about us, now on to the game!
The year is 1274. The powerful Mongols invaded China in 1259 and they are a growing threat against Japan. Threats have been sent to the Japanese government in Kamakura and they now fear a invasion. The odds to fight back an attack from the Mongols aren’t good.
The main character (temporary name: Ego) lives on the country with his parents. His relatives have lived on farming as long as they can remember and are happily unaware of what’s going on in the rest of the country. One day when he is out he meets a samurai who says something about Mongols and that it’s over for Japan. The samurai also mentions that Japan now need all the men they can get and that he should go to the nearest village to help. Ego, who’s not so interested in working on the family’s farm, immediately decides to do as the samurai says.
Added a new character and updated the first background.
