Valcarta: Rise of the Demon - Combat Teaser!
Valcarta: Rise of the Demon version 2.0 'Map Teaser' video has been released!
Release date: Early 2013
Rise of the Demon is the first chapter of a 'storyline' game series that spans 5 chapters titled: Valcarta. The Valcarta series will be built on a premise of heavy storytelling in a mulit-path fashion. There will be a minimum of 2 paths in every game in which the player can play and experience the events that will unfold. Each path will provide the character with different pieces of the puzzle to put together to allow the user to experience a full view of the events unraveling within the world and ultimately decide which they believe to be right and wrong for themselves.

Rise of the Demon, the first Valcarta title series, which follows Valak, a young man that has no family to speak of and a blurry past. He has spent most of his 'youth' in the central province known as Drachell working as the 'protector' of a small town. At the beginning of the game, Valak must make a choice that will change not just his fate but also the fate of Drachell and Valcarta.

Key Features
  • Split Path Storytelling:  Experience the story and events of Rise of the Demon as they unfold from two different perspectives.
  • Old School RPG Action:   Front-view ATB battle system with a touch of Action for a unique twist, an immersive world and story, unique characters with their own personal history, quests and more.
  • Unique Game Play: Both paths of the game play differently, with different characters, different skills and a different point of view on the game world.
  • ATB with an Action twist: The new version of the game implores a brand new battle system. Traditional Action Time Battle with a twist of action, keeping players on their toes as they will want to ensure that enemies are unable to land a successful blow against them.
  • Life Filled World:  Experience and explore Drachell, a small isolated province on Valcarta. Talk with NPCs, learn about your fellow companions, the races within Drachell and more.
  • Explore & Discover: The new version of Valcarta: Rise of the Demon is likely to far suppass the original target goal of 15 hours per path with a total of 30 hours. The new estimate is more around 40-50 hours, but nothing is certain yet.
  • Finely Crafted Time Line: Experience a true split path adventure. The choice you make alters the entire world around you. The events of Drachell will unfold, regardless of which path is being played however, but the end result moving forward will be greatly altered. Join up with either the Sleemon Empire or the Brotherhood of Twilight to get the full story!
  • Lorebook: The Valcarta series is based on the telling of lore between a Loresmen and his daughter, the apprentice. In doing so, each game will yield a new chapter of the Lorebook, for fans! The Lorebook is both written and done over with audio for your listening and reading pleasure. It's chalk full of details that perhaps you missed in your play through or points that further expand information gathered in the game.

That's great news, thanks! Best of luck on a successful release! (And I'm embarrassed to say I didn't notice the game was already greenlit when I had first posted. Much belated congratulations!)
