Unity Tech Demo (Public Build)
What We're Making
Towergirls: The Game is a mix of JRPG and Grand Strategy. Create Sir or Lady Knight, and go on a quest to rescue the land of Corona from the depredations of the Dragon Queen and her Daughters! You must brave dungeons and towers against their vile minions and allies to rescue the princesses of various kingdoms. Once rescued, you may return them to their kingdoms for diplomatic benefits, or seek to befriend or even romance them to unite your kingdoms, even eventually marrying them! Then, use those connections to expand and unite the kingdoms of Corona in the face of the threats to come.
Characters you meet in the game become party members, ministers, or related to vital services of your Kingdom. Your Kingdom itself will advance both in terms of technology and infrastructure you build, but also in laws and culture due to decisions you make with the help of your advisers and princesses. In turn, you advance your own skills, either as a leader or an adventurer, to improve your abilities to rule and lead armies, or to fight your way through dungeons for treasure, rescues, and chivalry.
As of July 2020 all of the subsystems are more or less working*, and we'll be turning development towards fixing bugs and adding content back in from the Game Maker version. Once we're done adding all the old content back in we'll be adding in the rest of the princesses' dungeons and rescues. Each princess has a rescue, loyalty, and romancing segment, cultivating in marrying them and gaining partial control over their kingdom.
History of the Project
The original choose-your-own adventure came into being back in 2014, inspired by an exploitable image. This image featured a knight bursting into a tower, loudly proclaiming that he was there to save the princess. Many humorous variations were made.
This was later expanded upon by Gats (aka Nougats), who made it into the larger choose-your-own-adventure image series that we all love. Over time it became fairly popular, mostly due to the wide variety of princesses, knights, and fan additions.
Around this time a sexy beast (DukeFluffy) began to fish for interest to see if anyone wanted to help make an actual video game. This turned up Unyin (our lead artist), Sera (artist), and Felineknave (writer). With the four of us production was started.
For the next five or six months we added many more to the team. Pilz (writer) and Ashe (community manager) were quickly added, followed by Hetros (project manager). Snooze (writer), Mouse (artist), Ally of Justice (artist), and Arizona Music (composer) were the next additions to our team. Things kept expanding over the years, with more and more folks joining, and leaving (The full list can be seen below). Together we made a humble yet solid demo, and have continued to expand upon it. Most recently we've decided to port the game to Unity to speed up our rate of production.
