Generia by Darkovika

Note: This game is in early Alpha. It does not always work.

Summary

You play as Harold, a generic Hero born into a small town in the middle of a forest. He has never been further than his small home town of Forestia, but to the people there he is a Hero. Harold's life revolves around the understanding that he is the Perfect Hero- and he acts like it too, cocky as hell and kind of a jerk.

Until he's put to the test- and then he realizes he's not the Hero he ever thought he was. After a terrible incident, Harold loses everything- faith in himself, faith in the world, and his best friend. The King's daughter is kidnapped by an as-yet unknown foe and carted off for who knows what, and no one is stepping forward to go and save her.

Will it be Harold who saves her? Or is he too broken to do anything except find a Hero who can?

Credits

Monica Prunier, aka Darkovika, aka the person writing this- me. I am a Programmer, a one-girl Development team, working in RPG Maker MV to put this extremely generic game together in 7 Days what was originally supposed to be 7 days and we later laughed at because that's such a ridiculous notion. Generia's development is usually livestreamed Tuesdays and Thursdays... if I livestream on Thursdays. You can watch here or here. I am currently using assets included in the Engine, plus music from several DLC's. I am compiling the credits for the music and art and will be sure to give credit where it is most certainly due. 

I am a Software Engineer, and I graduated with a bachelor's in science for visual and game programming. Toward the end of one quarter, I started playing with RPG Maker MV, trying to test the strength of its new Javascript capabilities, and I threw together a basic level to work with so I'd have something to test. I fell in love with the engine.

I am by no means an artist, but I am both programmer and writer.

Generia is meant to be the most Generic Game you have ever played. There will be some creativity, but pushing the market and the limits of RPG's is not the goal of this project.
