Wotan is a visual novel combined with gameplay of a classic arcade style beat ‘em up where choice matters and fighting is not the only option. Inspired by old school brawlers, modern day adventure games, and Norse mythology Wotan combines the power of fighting with the power of words in one epic trek across America. Wotan’s sharp and neo-dark world inhabits a cast of colorful characters ready to help or hinder you depending on your choices and actions taken across the entirety of the game. Discover the protagonist Wotan’s troubled past and unleash endless bloodshed or delve into his methodical mind and avoid conflict as you befriend characters or create enemies as decisions are made.
The game is still in development anf the demo is very much a prototype but all built in GameMaker. I used the vector importing abilities of GameMaker Studio (so glad this was added!) by designing everything in Adobe Illustrator and then bringing it into Flash for animation, then into GameMaker studio.
Any input is helpful ^_^
