Good day 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 obtainable on Xbox One and Xbox Sequence X|S. It’s additionally obtainable on Home windows.
Park Story is impressed by motion RPG classics however tells a brand new, fashionable and unusual story about Parker. One evening, Parker crashes their automotive into the park and is left trapped. After chatting to a stray cat, Domino, they understand they’ve forgotten all the pieces about their life earlier than the crash.
That units off our journey, with Parker determined to discover a method again to a life they begin to bear 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 virtually 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 couple of to some native nation parks (an enormous Scottish park, often with a couple of household sights like a zoo or museum) and that spawned the thought. An motion RPG with an enormous overworld, set inside a Scottish nation park. That’s Park Story.
It was speculated to be a six-month undertaking nevertheless it 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 absolutely thrilling. The overworld has fifteen distinct areas, every with their very own theming and filled with hidden secrets and techniques. You’ll uncover caves with capacity 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 recreation. As an alternative, each dungeon has its personal distinct puzzles wrapped round its theme. A dungeon wouldn’t be full with out a ultimate 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 resolution to make on the finish of the sport – if you happen to survive!
It’s been an extended journey to get to the purpose of releasing Park Story. I must say an enormous because of the buddies, household and others who’ve contributed to creating it a actuality. I additionally must say because of the group at [email protected] for supporting a very-very-very indie developer to deliver his recreation to Xbox.
Park Story is in the stores now. When 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.
