Ruined Future: The Bad Ending
“Truth is not Reality.. But Reality is the Truth.”
Abstract: So Journey of the Truant God was a complete failure. Hack and Slash wasn't going to work, because of all the things that had to be put in it. However, I've been working on this project on the side, which as gotten a good reputation among my small group of friends. Ruined Future is the sequel to a prequel game.
Game Progression: The Game is more than an hour long, but it also has two maps completed, and currently working on the third.
Recruitment: Someone to check my grammar, please. Other than that, someone to help me give new ideas.
The End of the Sengoku Period. In 234 AD, Hydra Phantom succeeded in bringing back Xion, the Ultima God of Destruction, and broke the world apart into different pieces. However, he lost control of Xion, and Xion destroyed his soul, before going back to their resting place. Humanity, still ravaged by the events, rebuilt themselves with new traditions. Afterwards, they renamed their countries, or what was left of them. To the southwest, was the small island of Gingalain, to the east, the City of Quartz and the City of Ruby. To the northwest, the City of Sapphire, and finally, in the north, was the City of Diamond.
Humanity lived in peace for one hundred years. However, the Immortal King, known as Siegfried Pluto, and his Knights of the Round Table, invaded other lands, and took them as his own. With the three cities under his domain, he named the land the "Granite Empire". Then, he turned his attention to the Goddesses, the mediums of the World's Balance, and their sacred treasures. That's where the story begins.
The game as it stands is 8 hours long, or so.

A man who lives in the Village of Elm, on Gingalain. While living in peace, his village was destroyed, before being sent away by an unknown force. Once he finds out his village was destroyed, he returns to where his village was. From there, he meets the Goddess of Spirit, Sempronia. He works with her as an ally and friend to Sempronia, not just to help her, but figure out what happened to his village. He is a man of truth and honesty, and because of this, very gullible. He acts as the leader from time to time.
A "medium" is someone who can talk to the Gods, or a figurehead of them. Sempronia is the Goddess of the Spirit Temple, though her title does not mean she's an actual Goddess. Before meeting Xane, she traveled with Alex, her guardian and servant to her. Originally, she came from Quartz to investigate the Gingalain Incident, and to see if the Sacred Treasure, the Time Gear of Gingalain, was safe. She meets Xane and Miyasaki afterwards, and treats them like family. Kind and trusting, she's is beloved by any who come in contact with her.
Age: ???(Believed to be 20)
A young man with no recollection of his memories. Finding himself in Ruby with a splitting headache, he travels to Gingalain, seeing if he can figure out his identity from investigation. When Xane and Sempronia arrive in Gingalain, he is intrigued by their actions, and follows them, before making himself known and joining their ranks. Throughout the story, Miyasaki can be seen as a strategist to Sempronia and Xane, as well as a deadpan snarker to others. Planning, and generally a nice person to be around.
Lucretia Pluto/Princess Parthia the II
The Princess of Diamond, and Siegfried's daughter, Lucretia, otherwise known as Parthia the II, is a commander in Quartz, who was sent to serve King Bors, along with Knight General Lamorak. Being the successor to Siegfried, a lot of pressure is put upon her, as both a woman, and as royalty. To prevent this, she hides her identity to the heroes, before having it revealed. She believes in her father's dream of a "World without Sadness" but also believes the Goddesses should be apart of this plan too. To Xane and Miyasaki, she's a confident woman who lets nothing get past her, but at times, things relating to the Empire do get to her, especially those relating to her Father. Honorable, honest and a dedicated worker, she is also a loyal retainer to the Goddesses, and any lord she serves.
The last ninja from the Fuuma tribe, she joins the Federation out of desperate measures. Her parents have been missing for fifteen years, and she's dedicated to find the mystery behind them. She fights Xane and party at Eastside Tower, she nearly commits seppuku, before being motivated by Xane and co to continue to pursue her dreams. She then stands beside Xane and company to defeat the Granite Empire, and the Federation.
