world


Diaspora is set during the backdrop of a world at war with eachother. The powerful Vooresh Empire has recently defeated the Kingdom of Hess-Erabi when our story takes place. Only the equally powerful Kingdom of Kairon stands between them and world domination. In a world that is harsh, unforgiving and in such despair, how can anything be changed?

In the underbelly of society are a race of people called "Abeyan's". For centuries these human-like species have been subjugated to lives of exclusion and hatred by humans. What fate will befall on them as a result of the war and how does their story fit in?

characters


Ailfred2

Ailfred

Ailfred is a Captain in the Vooresh Army and has seen his fair share of combat during the war. Growing up, Ailfred befriended the king of Vooresh, King Ralts, which has catapulted his career and status in society. However, Ailfred is conflicted with the war and considers it a heavy burden on his men whom he tries to take good care of in the midst of so much calamity. Ailfred is hardly seen without his best friend Lieutenant Shakar close by.

Shakar

Shakar

A queen of daggers and stealth, Lieutenant Shakar has a significant list of talents that serve her well. Although she has only just recently joined the Vooresh Army, it is clear she already acquired the necessary skills to be a good soldier before becoming a soldier. Shakar sports a care free attitude, but is fierce in her nationalism and friendship with Captain Ailfred which can sometimes come at odds because of Ailfred's views on the war.

Orson

Orson

At a very young age, all male children in the Empire of Vooresh must undergo mandatory training and military service. The training instills discipline and nationalism at a very young age resulting in a more powerful soldier for the Empire. Orson is a prime example of this militaristic culture. He is quick to follow orders, believes in the Empire's cause and is brave beyond his years. Orson is at odds with his captain as Ailfred's view of the war wanes.

Habar 1

Habar

Being Abeyan, and not human, Habar and like so many other Abeyans like him know all to well the dangers they face. It is their duty to educate those around them and inspire hope even when all seems lost. Left with raising his daughter, Niomi, by himself; Habar must be the very careful in balancing Niomi's childhood with teaching her about the real world they live in, but also to let her be a kid and grow up on her own, no matter how difficult life can be.

Niomi 1

Niomi

Wise beyond her short years, thanks to her father's guidance and the disposition Abeyan's must endure, Niomi has a somewhat optimistic view of the world she lives in and effortlessly manages to find the good and beauty in life even when humans would regard her and other Abeyans as filth. Niomi has a insatiable curiosity and desire to learn as much as she can and better understand the world. The bond between her and her father is unbreakable.

Ralts

King Vooresh (Ralts)

King Vooresh (King Ralts to those closest to him), had the unlucky honor of the war breaking out shortly after becoming king of Vooresh. Twelve years ago, the Kingdom of Kairon and Hess-Erabi formed an alliance and invaded Vooresh kingdom. They where able to drive them off their land and through iron will, Ralts was able to reorganize and strengthen his armies and tactics which later resulted in a brutal victory over Hess-Erabi to form an Empire. Ralts was childhood friends with Ailfred.

Celeste

Celeste

While growing up in Aldair, a rich but secluded town in the Kingdom of Kairon, Celeste had very little hardships thanks to her fathers fortune. Celeste pursued the sport of fencing at a very young age as do most wealthy families living in Kairon. This would seem like a simple life, but Celeste cannot ignore how while her family is filthy rich, so many in Kairon are devastatingly poor. The desire to help is always there, but as her father would say it, "wealthy people are wealthy for a reason, poor people are no different".

Wedge

Wedge & Biggs

Wedge and Biggs represent almost every soldier under Captian Ailfred's command. One of the heaviest used companies in the war, these soldiers have been at the forefront since the initial invasion to the brutal occupation of Hess-Erabi. Even with their higher military training and discipline than other countries, these soldiers have endured so much that the once unshakable discipline they all had begins to vaporize away ever so little until it spills out as insubordination.

general

Gabriel

One of the three generals in the Vooresh Army, Gabriel is a quite character that little is known about him, but holds tremendous sway over the king and the events of the war. Gabriel is in charge of the war planning and execution of such plans. He is a clear force to be reckoned with and is rumored to be an excellent fighter. Although his methods are cruel, no one can deny the progress and transformation Vooresh has made since being invaded.


More characters will be added as development continues

Character Update: Niomi

News

DevBlog


What's new in Diaspora - RPG?

We had a set back aa I fell victim to a power surge which fried my amazingly piecemeal gaming and work computer we are developing Diaspora on. We did not lose anything, but it required a total PC replacement and reason for delay in getting you guys more news about Diaspora! Excuses aside, it was a nice break considering, but back to work we go!

As promised, we will be mixing in "Character Spotlight" articles in between large developer updates. While developing a 2D game, character development takes precision, ambience and extreme care of the smallest of details to allow the player to connect on a personal level with the characters who's lives and destinies are in their hands.

We decided to start with my personal favorite character of Diaspora and one who I have come to really care for and respect her powerful inner-will in the face of such calamity in her short life.

Niomi

Wise beyond her short years, thanks to her father and his guidance about the disposition the Abeyan race must endure, Niomi has managed a somewhat optimistic view of the world she lives in and effortlessly manages to find the good and beauty in life even when humans would regard her and other Abeyans as filth. Niomi has a insatiable curiosity and desire to learn as much as she can and better understand the world. The bond between her and her father is unbreakable.

Niomi Large2

In the world of Diaspora, Abeyans are a type of humanoid who live a very dangerous co-existence with the more dominate human species. While humans have managed to thrive, expand and control the world, Abeyans have never managed to do any of these things and are often times pushed into a nomadic culture that depends on the very small amount of scraps and good graces they can receive by humans around them, when most humans would rather they just go away or not even exist at all.

Leading up to the story in our game, Niomi and her father, Habar, wander from city to city and different continents all over in seek of showing Niomi as much of the world as Habar can. Although their lifestyle is very meager, Habar makes it an effort to provide Niomi with as much as he can to give her a good childhood in a world which makes her slightly better off than most Abeyans her age.

Niomi is very intelligent for her age and because of Habar's constant tutelage about the dangers Abeyan's face, she is more mature as well. However, Niomi hangs on the belief that all things in this world e not as bad as they seem and can manage to find beauty in the bleakest of circumstances.

Elemental Magic

Niomi is the parties premier black mage. Her magic gets stronger the more she uses it as with all magic users. In Diaspora there are three main types of elements, they are Force, Carnal and Elemental. Elemental encompasses fire, water, wind and lightning and is the strongest element Niomi has mastered in the circle of elements.

Although small in stature, Niomi is a valuable ally in battle with her magical abilities. However, outside of battle is perhaps where her sharp mind uses her magic to her advantage the most.

This game looks like what I've been waiting on for years! I set up an account just to follow it! Do I just keep checking back or how does this work?

Hi Balt, welcome to IndieDB and Diaspora!
I'm assuming you are trying to find out how to "follow" the games progress (it is not out yet). You can do that by clicking the "Follow" button. It is pretty hard to see, but if you look at the top right of the page and where it says "Profile" with the games developer information under it, if you hover over "Profile" you'll see some pop up buttons.

When you are following, you receive emails whenever we update the game such as posting a new image or news article. We are planning to release another news article within the month btw.

Hope you enjoy!
