I made a thing, I guess.
Some people know that I am not only a writer, but I am a video game developer (in training) and as part of an eight-week long project, myself and a group of two others made a narrative-heavy mod for Neverwinter Nights 2. Please keep in mind, however, that this mod is very buggy and very basic. I am not a programmer, although I am learning, and this was made in eight weeks by a team with zero-experience with programming in C. That being said, we managed to create a working prototype in only eight weeks. It is often said that the hardest part of game development is publishing, and we managed to accomplish that. This is only an example of things to come, as I am working to polish the mod even further and release a fully-functioning 2.0 version. Until that point, please enjoy this 1.1 version. Any and all feedback is appreciated, as QA testing has not been completed.
Thicker than Water – A Valoris Tale follows Aeric Darrowson, a former member of the Bloodwaters Pirates, the most feared organization in the world, as he tries to smuggle his sister out of the group. How will Aeric act in his escape attempt? Will he act with integrity and look out for his sister’s safety? Or is he truly a brigand at heart, displaying only cruelty to others?
Special thanks to LilyAnne Rice and Jonathan Marson, two writers who helped me turn a crazy idea into a somewhat-functioning game.
(Note: you must have a working copy of Neverwinter Nights 2 to run this, as the .mod file is a special file type)
