A downloadable game for Windows

This game was put on hiatus several times, everytime i start working on it i upgraded something and change another thing here and there. The main goal it's to have it's own resources out of the classic RTP.

Main story is: you was an Hero and you though glory and richness is completelly related to the time when you defeat the main enemy and rescue the pricess. After all most of the tales ended like this with a... they live happily ever after.

The real world does not work like that and now you find that, cliches aside, you have to work hard to reach your own objetives, even if your ambition is to live a normal life and get someone to be with.

For me it's uncomplete and unfinished, compared to most of the projects released around the world it is almost complete, but not for me.

It was a start, and end and something between, but the main goal is to work in every aspect of the game, specially on the side stories and personal background of those who you can date. The game can be played for around 30 hours before reaching any end, it's a bit repetitive some times, or you can skip it rightly by doing nothing but sleeping every day and reaching a bad end.

If you take time to download and play, please let me know your thoughts about it, any kind of feedback is really apreciated.

Hey can you teach me how to make a game to

What engine are you using?


First of all i recommend you:

  1. To start something small,
  2. Write down main plot and ideas
  3. Think in the gameplay and if you will add some engines
  4. Look for non RTP resources (or make  them)
  5. Keep on working on the game
  6. Finish it and publish.

After all this has been done just tell me what kind of help you need and i'll gladly help. In fact it's a good chance to start making video tutorials.

Best wishes!

I really like this idea! For once a story that doesn't have a cliche happy ever after. The art style of the game is very nostalgic and the story really pulled me in.

How long have you been working on this game? :D

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Thank you for playing and for your comments. I have been working sporadically from 2014 to this date.  I've tried to make some updates to the game: graphics, story, engines, scripts from time to time and then the game is put in hiatus again. Untill i refound it and renew something or add anything.
I haven't heard about GDWC before, i have joined the moment you mentioned it and sounds pretty nice, even if there are no prizes, it's a cool way to get more visibility, as you said. I'm not sure about the unpublished rule, but i have another games barely done like this that haven't been published before.

Thank you again, for your advice, i will take this chance, of course!

That's great! :D If you have other games feel free to submit them as well :)
