The making of Dying Flame has been a labor of love and heartbreak.
The game boasts multiple endings, all drawn from our personal experiences, of loss, guilt, forgiveness, and the liberation of moving forward with life, as light or flame as your guide.
Between the demands of real life, full-time employment, and trying to work on a game part-time, we found ourselves literally lost in the dark. Instead of giving up, we took a leap of faith and plunged into indie game development in June of 2020.
We’re finally happy with the design, and believe that we have created the experience we wanted, and are proud to share the story of James and Mary with the RPG Maker and wider gaming community.
We hope that you will gain an insight into the pain, loss, grief, addiction, and what guilt can do to a person and that you will never have to personally experience it.
Just remember to keep the flame alive.
