             Anonymous Agony is a commercial video game focusing on dark, realistic themes. It will be distributed online in an episodic manner. It's setup like a television show, and it will be very heavy on story.



     Haze and Clara don't have the best parents in the world, between their regular drug dealings, and other shady activity, but despite this, Haze and Clara go on living. Haze, an eighteen year old punk just starting starting to grow up holds a deep bitterness for the world as well as his parents. He tries to protect his sister from the evil in the world he has experienced first hand. Clara, a ten year old girl just starting middle school that's very grown up for her age spends most of her free time online chatting with friends.

        One day, Haze returns home to find that his younger sister has been raped, Haze discovers soon after that it was by a person she had been talking to online. After much strife, Clara is sent to a mental hospital to recover, Haze begins using his sister's online screen name to lure out other internet predators in hopes of, in his own way, getting revenge on the world.

       Anonymous Agony follows the parallel Stories of Haze and Clara.
As Clara heals and heads towards eventual recovery, Haze heads towards his own downfall.




Haze
                Character Concept--------------------------------------------------In-Game Portrait

_______

Haze is very sarcastic and condescending he always speaks in a superior tone, unless
he's talking to his sister Clara. He's usually disrespectful and rude.


"Well pops, you seem like one of the decent ones. But I still don't care to ever see your face again,
do take care though, I mean it, I really do."

 

_________________________________________________________________________________________ _______

Clara

        Character Concept---------------------------------------------In-Game Portrait

_______

Clara is a spunky, smart 10 year old girl. She's impressively mature for a child, and regularly gets mad
at Haze for his mean attitude.


"You kinda suck. But since you let me ride on your shoulders again I guess you kinda don't suck..."

_________________________________________________________________________________________ ________

Craig

         Character Concept----------------------------------------------------In-Game Portrait

_______

Craig is an older middle aged police officer, he's tired and short most of the time, but is still a good guy.
He lives a few houses down from Haze.


"You asked me why I was a cop, why I tried to "play fair" in a world that doesn't. I'm a cop because...
I'd rather fight an impossible battle than surrender to a damning world."

For taking arms in the name of your breakfast.
I like this idea, for some reason the story appeals to me. Soemthign about Haze going down the path to self destruction just for vengeance for his little sister. Keep up the good work :3

Hm, definitely interesting. The concept is fairly original, but be warned: I have seen a lot of fiction that covers such a bleak subject turn silly and corny very easily. It will take a lot of work to prevent your game from going that way, and I wish you all the luck in the world.

Your mapping looks decent though the story synopsis lead me to thinking that they live in the inner city with tons of crime and shady looking people. Rather than living in a decent looking subdivision.

Crime doesn't only exist in a suburb city, that be a bit too stereotypical as well I think.
There is a larger city out of their neighborhood though, as you said, you're only seeing the subdivision area of town.

I am aware of the delicate themes of the story, thank you very much for the luck, and I hope to impress.

Hm. That's kinda salty for an RM game. I've seen them go for up to $10.oo US, but I was dissuaded by the price, to say the least... perhaps if the first episode is really good, people will pay, but it's my experience that they won't. I don't mean to discourage you, it's just what I've seen.

You never know, it just might work.

I've actually seen quite a few more expensive RM games, up to 20$ US, being sold that were of very bad quality.
They were selling a decent amount too, I'm confident people will like the first episode and deem it worth it.
But there never is any guarantee, we'll be making the game the best we can, and putting it out there, it's really all we can do, I believe the engine the game's running on doesn't matter, I believe it's the soul of the game that does.
Keep an eye out for that first episode next month! ;)

I've seen commercial RM games much worse than this that do pretty well. I'll be eagerly awaiting the first episode.

Great idea for the story, nice character art and music... But will this work with those cheery rmvx graphics? I'm afraid not to be honest. For some reason i think this would work better as a visual novel than as a game. Just go for more custom character art and leave out the awkward graphics. Is there even rpg related gameplay? You might take a look at ren'py instead, it will also give you more platforms to release your product on.

Screenshots aren't what I was expecting. I kinda had a Visual Novel in mind, but I'll still try out episode 1 for sure, because looking back at the story it still blows me away, it's such a great concept. You can turn this into a television show :P

plot sounds like a cross between chris hansen and Dexter, sorta interesting. I gotta say the final clara seems kinda lame for a gritty story. but hey opinions

Where did all these bellybuttons come from *^^*
Best make sure you have permission from the graphic/music resource authors before selling, unless the screenshots are full of placeholders (I'm not just referring to the sprites).

Interesting looking game, though. I'll keep an eye out.

Actually, all music and art was done specifically for this project, it's all original.
The original sprites are currently being made, and the tileset artist gave permission :)
