Hello everyone! Welcome to the VERY first devlog of an upcoming game called Fate’s Journey!
Mineral Cove City is a prosperous and highly advanced city located on a BEAUTIFUL island. Although it is rich in advanced technology, Mineral Cove is also known for its grand archive located in the City Hall’s underground bunker. Mayor Phate wants to keep record of more artifacts so she grants her two trusted archivists Skye and Gale to retrieve three rare gemstones, the Lunar Amulet, the Resonant Nacre, and the Obsidian Dragon Scale, back to her for preservation. As Skye and Gale set out, instead of sticking together as a team like Phate instructed, Gale sets out on her own to find the gemstones for her own selfish gain. Skye must venture through the City and the neighboring areas around it to get these gemstones for the Mayor! …. And to make sure that Gale doesn’t do anything stupid!
Now that the initial story’s been set up, it’s time to meet our main characters!
This is just an initial sketch for now but here they are!
From left to right: Mayor Phate, Skye, and Gale
Skye is our playable main protagonist
Gale is our rival character
and Mayor Phate is our Hub Navigator (think Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy or Ciel from Megaman Zero)
Now more on our guy, Skye:
Portrait of them here (tentative design pending) ^^
Skye wields a rod given to them by Phate called the Conductor. It has control over three elements: fire, ice, and electricity. Each element has its own unique ability whenever Skye uses it:
Fire = When an enemy is touched by a fire attack, it continues damaging them for a short amount of time. It is not only effective against ice-based enemies and obstacles but when used at certain places (an oil lamp or candle for example), it can be used to create a light source.
Ice = Enemy that’s touched by an ice attack, it freezes them in ice blocks. Skye can also freeze platforms which allow less friction.
Electricity = Enemy that’s touched by an electric attack, they get stunned for a few seconds. Skye can also activate electrically powered lamps to create a light source.
And as for the level I have in mind, since #MyFirstGameJam’s theme is Water I conveniently have an island/beach themed level in mind (the main setting IS Mineral COVE City after all)
Anyways that’s all I have in mind for now. Stay tuned for more guys! ‘til next time!
