Description
"Every thought is a dream rushing by in a stream." ~ Earth, Wind & Fire

2nd Place Winner of Westwood College's Video Game Legends Pitch Competition (2012), Emerald Decade is an Adventure-Puzzle game utilizing the Game Maker Engine and designed to be played with a Single Finger to have a Gaming Experience that touches all through playing. Featuring an: Original Story & Mythology, Gameplay Mechanics and a Jazz Inspired Soundtrack, Emerald Decade brings a new way of enjoying games for all ages for mobile devices!

Lumen Ten, a young worldly veteran, goes on vacation to a self functioning sea-city named Ferris Nashville with his spunky sister Fanny Moor. The two experience Fat Tuesday as the sea-city itself goes into its own all-nighter festival. An Ice Veil suddenly manifests as an Emerald Toned man descends from it. This Emerald Man, Dios, deep freezes everything with various layers exotic ice while the citizens are encased into Ice Sculptures resembling the Zodiacs. Still digesting his life experiences, Lumen's Shaman powers suddenly manifest that can thaw the Ice Sculptures by simply touching their mysterious Energy Points called Shape Nodes. Dios furiously confused at Lumen's thawing abilities wages his celestial conflict of control for the sea. Their worlds collide while the rolling sea earns it's salt.

The story concept is doable, but the "in-game" art is atrocious at best and I can't even make heads or tails of what is going on or how this game would actually function. I am also fairly opposed to game maker titles. they are ok for concept builds, but if you plan on taking this anywhere, you may want a real engine.

"Innovative" and "harmonious" are not words I would use to describe the visual style of this game.
