Coven  is a dark-fantasy gothic horror adventure game set in the medieval era.



The Story:
THE YEAR IS 1666, it is an age of darkness. The King is insane, and his madness has deepened into an obsession with Witches. Accusations of Devil Worship require no evidence of guilt. The structure of law and order has collapsed, plunging England into its darkest period. One of the King's first edicts is to repeal the laws on Witchcraft, and replace them with much harsher statutes. Most of the accused are women: outcasts, widows, the poor, and the elderly. The most vulnerable members of society, who have nobody to protect them...

As a young orphan girl, you've always had a gift. An occult power which you've managed to keep a secret for all of your life. After being falsely accused of Witchcraft and sentenced to death, an unthinkable act of desperation sets you free again, but your life as you knew it is over. Hunted by the King's henchmen, your only chance of escape is to learn to embrace your gift to survive as you set off on a perilous journey across a dangerous and hostile landscape, searching for a new home.

Coven is a dark-fantasy horror adventure game set in a medieval past, loosely inspired by Carrie and The Witch.

Features:
- A mature fairy tale with adult themes and dark subject-matter.
- Detailed animations and cinematic visual effects, with 640x360 graphics resolution.
- An epic musical score and dynamic sound effects.
- Characters fully voiced by professional actors.
- Over 100 different locations to discover, illustrated and brought to life with animated effects.
- Gestural spell working, draw runes and sigils directly on screen with your PC’s mouse to cast spells.
- Traditional adventure game play with a twist, based on Witchcraft and folklore.

Thanks BarbWire, I actually have no idea what I'm doing yet I'm trying to sort out all of the social media so I start showing some of the game. When I get my head around it I'll try to post some more content and keep it updated. Thanks to those who PM'd me. I'll be looking for a couple of people to help test the game before long, but it is a horror-themed game made for adults (not pornographic) but definitely R-Rated and controversial.

Hi Lantern Bearer

You sound like me. I have no idea what I'm doing most days  ???
The world of social media is a a big no, no, for me.

Glad to hear that, in due course,  you will post more content and
keep updating.

I would like to be considered for the position of game tester. I'll send
my CV when I've made one up.  (laugh)

Thanks, and done, updated with new in-game screenshots and some video. Was going to make a GIF but thought I'd put up a glimpse of the game first in video.

 A couple of new screenshots as I work out the details for a demo. The first image is concept art, but a scene like that will be in the game.





Open up a portal to another world.
