A playable Windows demo of The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante
, offering a way to check out this upcoming narrative RPG from
publisher 101XP and developer Sever. Word is: "Players are welcome to the dark
and gritty fantasy world plagued with universal injustice and governed by cruel
laws. A world that comes to life on the pages of the protagonist's journal."
Similar to The Guise,
is Russian, but again, familiarly, we have some details in English:
Brante begins his life path as a member of the lowest estate. Deprived of every
right and expected to accept the Lot of the lowborn — to suffer and toil away
for the benefit of others, the titular character is faced with an eternal
dilemma: to go with the flow or to fight and attempt to change his own destiny.
What price does one have to pay to find their true purpose?
- Learn from your mistakes
One of the game's fundamental mechanics is its non-linear storyline where
every twist of the plot depends on player choice. There is no single right
path in this life-long journey from one's birth until true death, but sooner
or later you will be held accountable for your every decision.
- Build spiritual connections
From the earliest years of his life, your hero's environment will shape his
personality, determine his skills, and affect his willpower. Meeting new
characters might hint at hitherto unexpected possibilities and unlock new
paths. Only time can tell where a blooming friendship or a growing rivalry
may take you.
- Discover new plotlines
The game's story will be forged by the combination of decisions, dialogue
options, and skills you have chosen over the course of your character's
life. Will you become a nobleman, a humble inquisitor, an underground
mastermind... Or select a different fate for yourself altogether? This will
directly determine your place in the grand scheme of things and your role in
future cataclysmic events.
