Description
Rionon: The Search for the Stone Statue

Our story takes place in the nation of Rionon, a diverse world of lush forests, searing deserts, bitter winterlands, and majestic mountains. Waking up in the Southern Desert village of Corinth, our hero is a young boy named Joshua who dreams of escaping the poverty of his hardscrabble life. And today, he's going to get his chance...

The great pride and treasure of the people of Rionon is the Stone Statue, a relic from ages past both revered and worshiped by the citizens who believe it brings good fortune. The Statue sits reverently, it's watchful eyes of marble gazing out from in front of Priesas Turtas, the palatial home of the High Priest of Rionon in the opulent capital city of Urusalim.

For Rionon is a land of haves, and have nots, and you, young Joshua, are most certainly a have not. The down and out villagers of Corinth know not to try and rub elbows with the residents of Urusalim, save for perhaps those souls living in the capital's tenements neighborhood. The response of the people in the cultural hub of Laodicea, just north of your little hamlet, are barely different.

But perhaps all of that is about to change...

In what can only be described as a brazen move, one night the Statue went missing. The priests and soldiers searched far and wide, but to no avail. A pall fell over the nation as people lost all hope. And that's when the letters came. The priests, in a desperate attempt to find the Statue through any means possible have resorted to coming to your village looking for anyone who might be able bodied enough to search high and low for the Statue. The only lead they have to go on is a suspicion that a known cult, Pax Christi, is behind the disappearance. Find the Statue, and you will be showered with wealth beyond compare. Indeed, your entire village would finally gain the respect it deserves, and you? The admiration of the entire country. It's time to hunt down this dirty cult. But why would they even steal the Statue?

Inspired by the Bible.


Delving into issues of morality and choice, Rionon is inspired by the book of Acts in the New Testament, and features a large open world with dozens of characters. Will you make the choice to help yourself, help your nation, or help an old woman just trying to find her lost husband? Can you sort out right and wrong in a sea of confusion? Make your choice today, on PC, Linux, Mac, and Ouya!

Graphics are terrible, horrible choice of font and the font color is very hard to read in nearly all scenes.

This actually reminds me a lot of EverQuest when it was first released back in the day with the visuals and the flavour of the game. I see room/potential for growth. Voted and following, with same sentiments as sweatshirt - setting the visuals as a priority before you release your next vid is highly recommended to give us more of an idea of your planning stages. All the best.

You definitely to work on your game's visuals (HUD, graphics overall, etc.)

Voted, but you really need to fix those things when/if possible.
