For the last four years (on and off) and with over 600 hours put into the RPG Maker VX Ace software I’ve finally finished my first ever game – The Book of Metal. Firstly here’s a video of the first 15 minutes of the game:
In a world where metal binds the people of The Peanus Isles, life is simple, and life is good.
Kept strong by the whisper of a legend, metal has grown strong over time and its influence is ever expanding.
All have heard of this legend.
The legend of a book, which has maintained the ethos of this world for many centuries.
It will be stolen. It will be taken.
Join Alan, Pete, Aiden and more on their quest to bring metal music back from the clutches of evil, stolen by the egomaniac Stubbs after a series of poor album reviews drives him to the brink of insanity.
Take a journey through a world drenched in brutality, taking on corrupted souls, fiends, demons and bad jokes along the way.
