A simple game that revolve solely around your interaction with a stranger. It was simplistic interactive piece but still retain a level of difficulties with the puzzle element in the game.
The story revolves around Ashania, a flourishing, opulent and peaceful kingdom. A place where Elves, Dwarfs and Humans lived together under Lord Bornia’s rule.
The kingdom was comprised of Lord Bornia’s castle located on the top of the hill with several towns surrounding it. The mines near Ashania were rich with rare minerals, precious gems and strong metals, allowing craftsmen to craft armors, weapons etc. unrivaled by neighbouring countries.
Its strategic location allows trading by both land and sea. All trade roads and sea routes that leads to Ashania were well protected and traders were attracted to Ashania due to its quality goods and exotic markets. Surrounding towns provides food and tax monthly. In return, they were protected from monsters and bandits.
Ashania’s military power were a force to be reckoned with. All Ashanian soldiers were well-trained and accustomed to battle on land and sea. Ashania were able to lay siege on neighbouring countries, mobilizing only half of its troops to do so. With busy markets and military prowess, Ashania were able to keep good relationship with neighbouring nations, benefiting each other with the long, undisturbed peace.
The Black Mountain
The Black Mountain was located hundreds of miles to the south of Ashania. It was shunned by local Ashanians. Beasts, bandits and traders kept away from the mountain pass. Its ominous presences towered over Ashania, the black peak could be seen by all people from the vast kingdom.
The Black Mountain
The mountain was sheer and craggy, with parts resembles a tower or man-made architecture. Its presences had affected Ashania greatly, appearing in Ashanian’s folktales from time to time, symbolising great evil. What secrets was hidden in the Black Mountain? No one would ever know.
You have arrived at Ashania. Flying colours and cheery shouts filled the streets of Ashania. A festival was happening. As you were roaming around, experiencing the jolly, wonderful atmosphere of the crowds, a wave of darkness and unease hit your mind. You broke into a cold sweat, when you saw a vision.
A vision, of great fire engulfing the town around you, horrid creatures ripping townsfolk apart bits by bits. The Black Mountain to the south grew larger and larger, towering over Ashania, casting its black shadow upon the despaired faces of Ashanians.
You shook your head violently, the vision dissipated. You looked around and noticed. Amidst of all the celebration, the black peak of the mountain stood ominously behind the kingdom’s landscape. What was the vision about? What secret does the mountain hide? You stared at the black peak, panting heavily.
She stared back.
