Backstory


JBS first started as a book idea, when I was younger I would write away in my notebook story ideas/plots and extend on them if I liked the base. I loved the concept of this game so much that I wrote an entire 150 page novel to really bring the JBS world alive, after several years of revisions and edits to the draft I thought about publishing it. Considering I know the story inside and out from what I envisioned it was more of a video game/anime then a book. So with that JBS for the PC was born, starting from scratch it is where it is today because of how much I love this story.

I also expanded on the JBS world and wrote two sequel books that not only bring you into more brand new worlds but continue where the story left off each book, pulling you in and making you want more!



JBS is already well into development, and you can check out the latest Beta v1.8

(caution, this game is not intended to be easy)
