: A legend that spans an era: the legend of the Narrator
Have you seen the red sky? And the green lightning? Rumour has it that whenever the sky turns red and the land is struck by green, the Narrator appears. A time traveller I hear. You best be a good boy. You best be a good girl. Otherwise the legena will come true. The Narrator will get you.
Legena: Union Tides is a turn-based role playing game for currently Windows, Android, GameStick and OUYA (other platforms pending). Take the role of Tetiro Aceus and Atesan Turwin to explore the open seas, stop the pirate lords and discover the other side of the Legena universe. And how their roles turn the gears of a legena that spans countless eras.
Legena features a traditional JRPG combat system with a dynamic turn system, a variety of exciting characters, threatening villains and unique dungeons, along with new features including the weather which effects the battles, feathers that equip heroes with a variety of skills and a morale feature that rewards moral choices. And for those wanting a challenge, the difficulty grid waits to allow anyone from beginners to pros to play the game. Choose your difficulty and power on through!
Legena is being developed by a group of three people. There is Greg who does our sound effects, SkittleGirl Sound who has provided our entire 16-Bit soundtrack and me, the programmer, artist and designer.
Legena started out as a 8-Bit inspired prototype which I developed during university for Android. A few years later I decided to return to the series knowing I could have done better. And thus the Legena series was reborn as a trilogy. While the prototype was developed using Game Maker 8, I have decided to use Game Maker Studio as it will allow me to port the series to the GameStick, Android, OUYA and many other platforms!
Over the course of the game, you will control a variety of characters. Each with a story. And each with a past.
: The king of Orenna. Living a sheltered life with his father, it took leaving his country to see the world in a new way and to bring Orenna into a new golden era. He is now travelling to Dynol and Vesira to bring peace in the name of Orenna. However he is obsessed with the Narrator. Meeting him during his rise to power, he pursues the Narrator frantically to take him down. He is becoming a lot like his father.
: The king's advisor. During the reign of King Uritan, Atesan led a rough life being hunted like an animal. He was an outcast. Suffering years of torture, punishment and humiliation, Atesan became distant with other people. He rarely trusts people and originally despised Tetiro Aceus. Over the last few years, the scars Atesan gained have started to heal. With the mental scars disappearing, he now wears the physical scars with pride.
: One of the Pirate Lords. Being stranded at Marin Port, Nathaar and his best mate Martic planned to steal a ship and sail to Dynol to get revenge on the man who stole their ship. Cocky, arrogant and ruthless, he doesn't seem the type to take pity on people. Especially those who are far weaker than him. There may be more to him than meets the eye. Very few pirates in Dynol have a sense of kindness in them.
: Nathaar's best mate. Being his second in command, Nathaar trusts Martic and seeks his guidance in their plunders and crimes. With his quick wit and his channel cannons, there is no situation that Martic can't get out of. He keeps his cool and powers through. Though with his wit and calm personality comes a gleam in his eye. He has a plan to make Nathaar and himself the greatest duo of pirates the world has ever seen.
: An old friend of Tetiro Aceus and Atesan Turwin. After helping them on their adventure to overthrow King Uritan, Malina has now set out to Dynol to find new adventures with guarantees from a source that there is a crime lord worthy of a huge bounty. And with her obsession for being a heroine, she set out to the land of Dynol to make a heroine of herself. But she finds more than she can take.
: Not much is known about Lenaki. In fact, she doesn't know much about herself. Waking up at the Red Shore, she has a lot to work out. Why is she different? Why is she a toy reptile? Perhaps she will be enlightened by these answers. Or perhaps ignorance is bliss.
Below is the demo of the game. You have access to everything up until the first boss. The demo is still in progress as a good number of the sound effects aren't implemented yet. And please note it is intended to be a 15+ game. So please respect the age rating.
