Black as White: Timelord Victus
If you have any questions or comments, please let me know. I can't fix it if I don't know it's broken! Demo Link is at the bottom of this post.
Timelord Victus is a non-canon sidestory based in the world of my novel, Black as White. Black is White is about a boy named Zack, his eventual girlfriend Addy and their various allies trying to stop the end of the world. Both Addy and Zack are Keepers. "Keepers" is the name of those who are host to immortal, demi-god like beings called Lords. Their efforts are hindered by Desmund DeAdeua, a lax, scholarly summoner and Genevieve Kaido, a power-hungry master of magick and cards. They are being employed by a mysterious third party who takes a special interest in Zack.
In Timelord Victus, a man named Victus has thrown himself inside the very fabric of time and is trying to take control of it in order to become a God. After discovering this plot, Zack and Desmund agree to a truce in the interest of stopping Victus.
In Black as White, Earth is split into two separate dimensions; Logex, where Zack is from, is a dimension that exists largely without and completely ignorant of Magick. Desmund and Gene however, come from Magex, the parallel dimension which has advanced far beyond Logex because of their harnessing of Magick. Timelord Victus will not only have you traveling through time, but between dimensions. Because of the differences in the dimensions, each one will play somewhat differently. Because Logex does not typically have monsters to fight, you will be facing more human opponents, solving more puzzles, helping people with their problems and making choices. Magex will play more like a standard RPG, and by that I mean 90% of your time will be spent in battles.
All Character listed are playable. Please excuse any ambiguity, time-wise and otherwise. BAW is a huge story that is far from finalized, so very little is set in stone.

Epic, changing story: The choices you make will determine the fate of the random people in the world, the main cast, and even the world. I am hoping that the main story will be at least 10 hours long, with multiple endings determined by your choices through the game. You, as Zack, will be able to choose who lives, who dies and who you romance on this adventure.
In-depth, challenging combat: With over 100 skills as of now, the game boasts a fast paced combat system with lots of strategy. Every character is unique, and the player will be able to mix and match the main cast of playable characters (more than 7 characters) to meet their needs or suit their liking. With beautifully designed monsters by some Japanese artist I can't name, and a wide variety of skills and spells to use, the combat will always stay interesting.
Lots of Loot: With each character having their own unique types of weapons, you will be able to find, buy and use over 100 weapons throughout the story to destroy your opposition. There are also over a dozen armors and items to use, as well as monster loot to sell for profit.
