Heyooo everyone, nice to meet ya'll!
 
My name's Misha and I've been a long time lurker on Spellhold Studios. I thought I'd share my game called Ili which I've been working on for the past 19 months. The game is greatly influenced Baldur's Gate 2 and the romance/friendship banters you have with party members, both in the vanilla game and great NPC mods you guys created!
 
Hope it peeks your interest! On a side note, Spellhold Studios was a big part of my life back in the day and I'd like to say thanks for always being there and making great great mods. May Infinity Engine mods live another 50 years!  :cheers:  :cheers:

Ili is an immortal being haunted by regret. Your aim is to guide Ili through her past and meet the ghosts from her past. While Ili is the game’s protagonist, you control most of her actions and act more like her spiritual guide. You are to help her say or do things that she would be too afraid to do by herself. The problems put in front of both you and Ili can be solved in different ways through talking. Do you intend to change the past? Or is it better to make peace with the past and to move on?
 
Check out the trailer and the link to the kickstarter below, I'm very proud of what I've made and would love to share with everyone  :-*

Hand-drawn style. Pencil, pen, watercolour. The game will use analogue drawing techniques to render this these painted worlds. Through these 2D methods, the game will experiment with how games can represent their worlds.
 
4th wall breaking narrative. Through the entire game, Ili will talk to you through the 4th wall, and you will guide her actions as you travel beyond time and space.
 
Narrative-focus. Despite being a powerful immortal being, Ili is a pacifist and deals with her problems through talking and negotiation. Like Fallout 1 and 2, through the power of speech instead of violence, you can approach each situation through different ways.
 
Multiple endings. Ili will have multiple endings in the style of Silent Hill 2 and visual novels, where the way you play and the things you say will change how the story of Ili will end.

Hi!

That looks very interesting. I especially like the narrative focus approach because there's enough hack 'n' slash going around as is. :)
