|The earliest concept art for ruins had wood as a major feature.|
No life indicates no men and women, animals, plants, bacteria, viruses, fish, or even dance parties. Indeed, you will take on the part of the mysterious principal character, who finds himself suddenly alive in a planet with nothing else. In reality, the world of this game is so fully dead that even all organic matter- wood, cloth, bones- has fully rotted away. All that is left of the old globe- our globe- is stone and steel.
But there are monsters. These are the memories of evil deeds from the past, whose shadows reside on in a kind of stasis of wrongfulness (so apparently that's a word!).
I never want to reveal what precisely the principal character is but, but I will say that I am fairly satisfied with his "origin story" which will be revealed in the game itself. There's no huge twist or big wow moment, but I believe most players will nonetheless find some thing to like about it.
Also, locating and grabbing the collectibles all through the game will revive a handful of lost souls that will then settle and build a village that offers the player access to the game's specific functions and some crucial character upgrades.
Anyway, that is all I'm going to say for now. I can't wait til you guys can play it!
