"A zeal for the defence of their country led these heroes to the scene of action,
though with a few men to attack a powerful army of experienced warriors." - Daniel Boone

Abstract: The world is at peace, or at least, that's the way it appears. Invaders from another world threaten the security of Earth and seek the fabled Philosopher's Stone, but they aren't the only ones looking for it. All in a days work for the President of the United States.
Genre: Realistic/Fantasy/Science Fiction (It's a bit of each)
Engine: RPG Maker 2003
The Philosopher's Stone, an object of untold power that has been a part of many myths and legends throughout history. It is said to grant the user immortality and immense power; however, it has been lost to the ages for centuries.
The year is 2012. It just seems like another boring day in the White House until President Obama receives word that the White House is under attack from unknown intruders. Not one to miss a beat, he soon learns that the attackers, who come from another world, plan to overtake Earth and are searching for the fabled Philosopher's Stone. Obama knows that he can't let the aliens find the Philosopher's Stone and use its power to take over the world, so he ventures forth and begins a search for it himself that will take him to the far corners of the Earth, through outer space, and even the edge of existence. But they aren't the only players in this game, and the closer Obama gets to the truth, the closer the Earth is to its end.
The game primarily takes place on Earth, which is obvious if you've read the story section up there. It's the same Earth that we live on, so there's nothing weird about it or anything (like it didn't grow an extra continent). Unless you want a two month lecture on the history of the Earth and what it's like geographically and climatically, I think we'll just leave it at that.
Personality: Energetic and positive (most of the time anyways), Obama is the perfect hero for all your adventuring needs.
Biography: He's the President of the United States. Need I say more?
Age: It's really up in the air with this one.
Personality: Always happy and willing to help out, which is probably why he's stuck with Obama.
Biography: He's the last of the Time Lords and leads a life of adventure and time travel with his space ship, the TARDIS.
Personality: Kind of serious and seems almost annoyed most of the time for being commonly mistaken as 'The One'.
Biography: He's an actor who somehow got wrapped up in this mess. He's almost definitely/definitely not 'The One'.
Age: Pretty dang old.
Personality: More on the serious side, but courageous and daring, which is surprising for someone of his age.
Biography: He wrote Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, those books everyone has to read in school.
Age: Who knows?
Personality: Polite to a point, but a bit arrogant when you get to know him.
Biography: The leader of the aliens, he commands General Guy and Balrog. Other than that he's a mystery.
Age: Old enough to be a general.
Personality: He just won't shut up about tanks and all things military. He even talks like a military officer.
Biography: He is one of the three main leaders of the aliens. He commands Balrog.
Age: This thing can age?
Personality: Almost always in a chipper mood, he's bright and energetic, although not too bright.
Biography: He's a lieutenant in the aliens' army. He's a lunchbox of some sort. Or is he a toaster? Who knows.
A mysterious group of people. Just who are they and how are they involved in all this?
I've used so many sprites and tilesets for this (or I am going to, if I haven't already) that I'm not going to bother naming individuals, because then the list would be a thousand names long and the in-game credits would last 30 minutes. So here's a condensed version.
- The Charas Project as well as anyone who has contributed to the web site
- The Spriter's Resource
Now for music credits. Not going to bother naming specific songs, just the people/companies who made them.
- Studio Pixel/Nicalis
- Whoever made the TARDIS sound for Doctor Who
- Looking Glass Studios
- Camelot Software
This is the fun part where you get to see that this game is an actual game (it's not a joke).
- Over 10 hours of gameplay (when it's completed it will, at least)
- A main story, which is separated into 9 chapters
- Locations such as The White House, Australia, Antarctica, Rome, Outer Space, and many more
- A traversable World Map of the Earth and the space around it
- Political Duels (one on one fist-fights between Obama and politicans)
- A wealth of optional things to do, including an optional chapter and optional bosses
- An optional post-game dungeon that lays in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle
I'm grateful for any feedback that anyone would give me; however, there is one thing that I am not going to change and that is the story. The story has already been completely fleshed out from the beginning of the game to the end of the game, and any changes would probably leave me with no choice but to change the entire game to a degree, as it's all based around the story. I'm still interested in what you guys have to say about the story (I'll probably hear nothing but "it's clich√ƒ¬© to the max", which it is, although there are parts that aren't so much) so feel free to speak up about it.
