Now ... what the hell is a "Seelentanz"?
It is simple: Seelentanz is our dream about an immersive and authentic fantasy roleplaying game. Yep. We know what you are thinking right now. The terms "fantasy" and "authentic" do not really fit together. Authentic in this context means that most parts of the game are going to be quite challenging. Especially parts like the combat system which I would rather refer to as "deadly".
An authentic combat system means:
- You don't need to turn enemies into hedgehogs by constantly shooting them with arrows in order to kill them
- You don't need to hit small prey like rabbits a thousand times with your giant battle axe only because the difficulty is set to "extremely challenging"
- Those two points mentioned before also apply to your character so if you happen to take an arrow in the knee you will probably have to cancel your career as adventurer (just kidding ... you will fall to the ground ... enemy will finish you off ... you're dead!)
What is roleplaying?
There are a lot of discussions going on about the term "role-play". Well we do not care about these discussions since Wikipedia says: "Role-playing refers to the changing of one's behaviour to assume a role, either unconsciously to fill a social role, or consciously to act out an adopted role." And Wikipedia is always right! [/irony]
Fun aside. This is exactly the kind of role-play Seelentanz is supposed to feature. While playing with your friends you immerse into your character and into the world. Assuming your friends are also immersing into their characters you will have a lot of fun in the game. If you have ever participated in a pen & paper role-playing game you certainly know how funny, sad or dramatic a story may turn out depending on the characters actions.
About the team
We are currently two indie-developers from Germany. We are working part time on this project since we are busy with our jobs during the week. We both share the same idea and dream of our own video-game and now we are trying to make this our dream come true. If you are interested in participating in this project just shoot me a PM or mail with your motivation and skills and we will put you to good use.
