A downloadable game

Sherwood by Darkovika

Summary

You play as Vaughn, a young boy who grew up a wealthy lord's son. Sheltered from the world, Vaughn has no clue that the political stability of Nottingham-shire and all of the towns that belong to it is shaken- shaken, and nearly destroyed.

King Richard is away on the Crusades, and in his absence he has left behind a good man, a man of justice, to rule in his stead. Power hungry and jealous, Richard's brother, Prince John, takes the throne and claims Richard's man is a traitor. In the years that follow the people are taxed out of life and home, forced to steal and then die for food, and those with the land and wealth to withstand it are branded traitors. Vaughn's family is one such example, yet another loss and crime that all turn a blind eye to. All but one.

Sir Robert of Loxley is known to many as a fair man, someone who treats his servants and friends kindly is not afraid to walk amongst poorer folk. He takes Vaughn in, saddened and angered by the loss of Vaughn's family- made of more good people- and Vaughn learns to call him by the name that all know him best by: Robin Hood.

Become Vaughn as you join Robin Hood on many of his greatest adventures, as well as a few of your own within the universe of Sherwood and Nottingham. Fight creatures of horror, monsters, and plain old humans in a tirade against Prince John's dark, hateful agenda.

Early Development

Sherwood the RPG is in very early development. What this means is that there will often be long periods of silence in regards to being able to actually play portions of the game, which I will release in small pieces for testing. There is currently no planned release date as it is too early in development to gauge, but have no fear, a release date is planned.

About Darkovika

So 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 ended up spending hours on the project, playing with all sorts of different things, and Sherwood was born.

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