Harbingers 2015 – Game Dev + Storybible.

Late 2015 - Done for a Game Development Class – Harbingers was to be: "A cartoony Side-Scrolling-Beat-Em-Up, with a dash of RPG.”
Assignment was to create a high concept document & story bible for pitching an original game – "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: WAR. FAMINE, DEATH AND CONQUEST are once more sent to bring about the end of humanity! – Its up to these harbingers to end the world together! Unfortunately for them, each time the Apocalypse happens, one of the horsemen expires and must be replaced in a chosen one-esc manner! Last time it was Death. – This time however it's Conquest. Unfortunately, this time the chosen has been assigned to a Timid Teen from a small town. Traditionally acting as the groups "Glory-bound leader" Conquest had united and lead the other harbingers to victory for Eons. – It’s now up to this New Conquest to choose: Each harbinger has their own idea of what a perfect "End of the World" would be like. you can choose to unite or destroy them!"
