My entry into the developer for a day competition
I entitled it, Golden Horizon. Now I'm starting to wish I gave it the title of my other game. Archives of the temple. That's kind of like a bunch of games set in different eras
For as long as they knew, the people of Cyria had a peaceful life. There were wars elsewhere and they had protection from an attack, but the wars had not yet come to their fortress. They lived in harmony, never having fights. If there were an argument, the 2 would ask a 3rd party, this was the final decision and there could be no more on the argument after this. They also were reliant on the sun that gave them their power, and it was believed to be the source of their good fortune.
Then one day, there was an argument in the center square. One of the boys who were arguing hit the other. Every one was shocked, including the boy who had struck the other. He just stood there, looking at his hand. Then everyone looked up and the sun was growing pale. This continued until it almost lost its entire glow. Then almost instantly, the fortress was attacked. As no one was ready, Cyria was taken, the people were enslaved and that was their life.
It was almost exactly 2 years since the attack that another one happened. An army known as the Baliserines attacked. In the heat of battle, a mother and her child escaped from their cage and while every one was busy fighting, she escaped across the baron land that was once the farmland that fed them, into the forest, then up a mountain. She looked out towards the battle and saw that the people had attempted what she had done, but many of them were caught. Some had made it into the forest and hid in there. When the soldiers left, the people went up to the mountain and observed the battle. The army that had enslaved them had been wiped out.
15 years had passed and the people of Cyria were all stuck in a cave with hardly any water, food or clothing. However, this didn’t stop them feeding the strongest one who had escaped. It was the child, whose name was Delridge and now 16 years old. Each day, he practiced his fighting. Now, as his fellow outcasts of Cyria slept, he left the cave with out a goodbye. He knew what he would have to do to save his friends. Not just take back the fortress, but regain the energy of the sun so that when he defeated the Baliserines he could give them all back the golden horizon.
