Secrets of Avalon
A downloadable game
Explore the Great Covenant of Avalon, a gathering of allied representatives on their home planet, as Dere Aislinn; a girl who lost her memory at the same place three years ago. Were your memory loss to be discovered it would be at great strain to your family. Without getting caught, uncover the mystery of your amnesia while navigating between politics and romance. Evade political, social, and sometimes physical dangers to regain what you’ve lost or choose to move beyond your forgotten history. Aid in the exploration of an ancient archaeological site while putting Avalon’s political stability at risk or help maintain the current status quo. While maybe along the way finding life-long friends or unexpected romance…

Personal Description of Fate Maker Games:
I’m Suru (though I also often go by Aura and Ash in online forums), the founder of Fate Maker Games. I love crafting stories and worlds for people to learn about and explore and thought an interesting way in which to do so was through the virtual novel medium. This is Fate Maker Games first project, with many storyboards and notes for future games connected to this world.
Hopes for Production:
We hope to continue to work on the game as time allows moving forward (this is a secondary job for us and is paid for by primary professions that require time first). However, we want to make sure going forward we offer updates at least once per month. Even if some updates may have little information we want to make sure people know that this game will eventually release and feel that consistency is a key method for accomplishing that. After many -many- hours of research we have decided that a kickstarter is not currently a viable option for us and are pressing forward expecting to keep the current GUI and more limited amounts of artwork. To aid in faster development we have started a pateron and would appreciate any patrons willing to offer to our cause as it allows us to spend more time on the game.

Once downloaded for pc or mac - names of files should be appropriate to needed style you will need to be able to unzip (extract) the game files. From there you should only need to select the exe to get the game to play. The exe should be something along the lines of: SoADemo. (The pc file should also function for linux.) You will need to start a new game and not use old files if you do not wish to come across many bugs.
