Hello everyone! My name is Schotti, a chemist by day and an indie game developer by night. I want to present you my pet project, which I am developing since mid 2015. I think, the time is finally right to share some information about SANTRIA!
This is my first devlog entry. Enjoy!
Which type of game is SANTRIA!?
SANTRIA! is a light-hearted, turn-based JRPG with a strong focus on exploration and character interaction. This coming-of-age story is inspired by Earthbound and the mysterious atmosphere/setting of Twin Peak with a flavor of X-Files. Pine Falls is a small town with numerous quirky characters you can socialize and romance with. Incidentally, you discover a conspiracy during your everyday school life, resulting in the awakening of your psychic abilities.
Check out some of the uploaded images to get a feeling for the graphical style and atmosphere! A sneek peak of the turn-based combat system is also included!
I worked on a fishing minigame as a possible free-time activity. This quick-time event works really smoothly and the development was fun! I hope you enjoy the visual presentation as much as I did!
Another big chunk of work was the name registration at the game start. Check it out!
The player can rename the three main heroes and has to name his/her favorite music genre and food. These informations will be useful to increase the immersion for the player!
Thank you for your attention! Check my twitter for more frequent updates! Stay tuned and until next time!
