Hello guys!Thank you for the nice comments! :)
You now know quite a lot about the gameplay, and the characters, so I was thinking : maybe I could tell you more about the story ? ;)
As we spoke before, story is a very important part of the game to us. Indeed, Pankapu is to be told like a tale. And like every tale, we want the player to grow up as he plays it. Thus, the gameplay will support the story in a strong way.
Djaha’Rell is a child whose nights are regularly troubled by nightmares. In order to overcome his fears, his father tells him the story of Pankapu, the Dreamkeeper. The player is then invited to live the adventures of the tiny warrior through the eyes of Djaha'Rell.
The game is a projection of Djaha’Rell’s mind, and it all takes place inside this imaginary world. In this way, most of the characters and situations come from his troubled past, and the player, if he/she is a little bit curious, will find the parallel between these two stories.
This mise en abyme will settle a dual narration. The young player will then follow the adventures of Pankapu, as he would in a traditional tale, while the more mature ones will read between the lines and discover the tragic story of Djaha’Rell, and how he overcomes his trauma.
...While Pankapu has a more light-hearted and epic story !
All of this sounds curious, doesn't it ? ;)You'll have to play the game to lift the veil on those mysteries!
See you next time!
In case you missed it, here's the trailer :)
