I am currently working on a collection of narrative viking poetry based on the Hattatal. This has unfortunately made me not be very active on this website anymore but for the release something event I decided to make a small comeback with a game based on one of the verses. This game (if I may say so myself) marks a notable improvement in my gamemaking, focusing on puzzles and alternative paths instead of repetitive battles.

The fishing trip of Byleif
(Verse 27)

SECTION A: SYNOPSIS
  • The viking explorer Byleif the Blitzer has recently left the ancient ruins of Znurali. Desperete for provisions they land on a seemingly normal island that soon turns out to be quite...weird.
  • This game is based on my poetry collection which can be found here: https://atspela.blogspot.com/2019/04/the-fishing-trip-of-byleif-first-twenty.html
  • It is not necessary to read it (although it is only a couple of pages or so) as it a stand-alone episode in a larger adventure. All you really need to know to get going is that these vikings are out exploring in a Wind-Waker like archipealago.

This might be my next project. You like it?
I'm off to search the master script list for my skill issue. HOORAY! FUN!
Fun fact: Digimon is an isekai :kaoswt2:
The problem with being a perfectionist is that you are never done with something.
Our Lore Wizard, Buttercup, just emailed me a draft of one of our in-game lore books, and it's one of my favorites so far. Her books are really bringing a vibrant history to Evergloom!

I've posted it under a spoiler tag called 'A study in 43rd Century Poetry' in our development thread!
