Howdy everybody! I’m Martin, the developer of the brand-new indie motion RPG Park Story. I’m very excited (and a bit nervous!) to share that the sport is now out there on Xbox One and Xbox Collection X|S. It’s additionally out there on Home windows.
Park Story is impressed by motion RPG classics however tells a brand new, trendy and unusual story about Parker. One evening, Parker crashes their automobile into the park and is left trapped. After chatting to a stray cat, Domino, they notice they’ve forgotten every part about their life earlier than the crash.
That units off our journey, with Parker determined to discover a manner again to a life they begin to keep in mind. However they aren’t alone. The demon raven Caim has taken management of the park and isn’t too welcoming to its new customer. Alongside together with his six Generals, Caim units out to cease Parker from escaping or serving to the animals and ghosts left behind.
I began work on Park Story nearly 5 years in the past. I’d gone down an web rabbit gap wanting up the dimensions of well-known videogame worlds versus actual locations. I ended up evaluating a number of to some native nation parks (an enormous Scottish park, normally with a number of household sights like a zoo or museum) and that spawned the concept. An motion RPG with an enormous overworld, set inside a Scottish nation park. That’s Park Story.
It was presupposed to be a six-month venture but it surely seems making videogames is fairly exhausting. Who knew!?
The final 5 years have seen me construct this complete wee world for Parker and gamers to discover, which is actually thrilling. The overworld has fifteen distinct areas, every with their very own theming and full of hidden secrets and techniques. You’ll uncover caves with means upgrades and alternate paths across the park that result in particular battle challenges.
I prefer to say that every of the sport’s dungeons is hand made. There’s nothing procedural within the sport. As an alternative, each dungeon has its personal distinct puzzles wrapped round its theme. A dungeon wouldn’t be full with no remaining boss although. That’s the place Caim’s Generals are available in. These six maybe-humans have been despatched to destroy Parker. Every brings their very own problem.
The story is an enormous a part of what makes up Park Story. Parker has their very own troubles, however the park’s animals will push them to beat Caim, banish evil and return order. Caim too, has his personal plan that extends past the park’s partitions. Demons don’t take kindly to puny people that attempt to intervene and Parker will discover that out.
The push and pull of Parker’s outdated life, the park’s animals, and the hazard of Caim, by no means stops. It’ll depart you with an enormous determination to make on the finish of the sport – for those who survive!
It’s been a protracted journey to get to the purpose of releasing Park Story. I have to say an enormous because of the buddies, household and others who’ve contributed to creating it a actuality. I additionally have to say because of the crew at [email protected] for supporting a very-very-very indie developer to carry his sport to Xbox.
Park Story is in the stores now. In the event you’d like to hitch the journey, or see some extra gameplay footage, go to the sport’s retailer web page. The park is an enormous place and I hope the story it has to inform will resonate with lots of people.
See you within the park.
