MEET THE AUTHOR & GAME MAKER

Hi GG'ers my name is Olga Andreyeva and I would like to introduce you to a fictional story and game I have been working on since June 2013.  XANTARA is an epic fantasy event story in the form of a a multi-media webcomic.  

XANTARA began as an idea for a story that I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, whether to make a movie, or show, or a graphic novel. I had always enjoyed experiencing a story through a video game, which is interactive and includes a certain degree of freedom. I decided to use the webcomic format as a vehicle for telling the story and developing ideas and characters because it was the only creator-owned option available. It would make this idea a physical thing and live beyond just concept art and sketches. Months into developing the idea and comic, I went to a panel and came to the realization that indie games were a thing. A thing made very possible to do by one person because of programs like GameMaker. And thus this strange comic-game Frankenstein was born!

I started the project as a solo effort, but over the years have been helped along by the generosity of friends and mentors.

 

STORY SETUP 

Elin is the last survivor of her town after the crystals that people have been mining for decades, took form and began to attack them. Several months after the catastrophe Elin meets Keira, a younger girl with the strange ability to harness power from her crystal necklace. Keira explains that she is on a quest to reverse the uprising, and Elin decides to join her. As they travel across the world they must deal with crystal monsters and find out the truth about their planet and their people.

 

HOW TO PLAY THE GAME

Good News -- I have one game ready for GG'ers to play.  The current game is an rpg-like exploring game that takes place in a town called Ostley, halfway through chapter 3 of XANTARA.   You can start playing here

 

STAY TUNED

The next game is slated to release mid-September. Each chapter has a short game that furthers the plot and is an integral part of the story. The game picks up where the story lets off and has cutscenes that help string everything together. There are details in the comic that will help a reader understand the games, and vice versa. The games are designed to be as accessible as possible, with the goal of each one being to complete a task and further the story.
