-----Synopsis-----

Book of Korvald tells the saga of a viking scribe, and his alliance with a parasitic entity that answers to the name "Qhroth'un".

History does not tell us that viking clans had scribes of their own. Their folklore is said to have been preserved through oral traditions exclusively, but this is not the truth. Many written sagas of the vikings were damaging to the reputation of royal families and expository to the church so these writings, along with their authors, were aggressively purged from existence.

Korvald's is not a tale of heroism and justice, but of deceit and suffering provoked by powerful religious empires. His story begins as so many are ended. Family slain and taken from his now destroyed village, Korvald is branded as a heretic and condemned to death. Moments before the arrival of his executioner, Korvald is approached by Qhroth'un and an agreement is made that will change everything...


-----Planned Game Features-----

Maps / Environments / Areas:
- Each game chapter takes place across an entire country. Using a combination of real places and people from history, as well as imagined. For example this story begins in Denmark (naturally) near the city of Ribe, and draws inspiration from the conversion to Christianity that took place around the 9th century in Scandinavia.
- So far I have story concepts for twelve events from history, told across nine countries (Denmark, Iceland, Germany, Italy, India, Israel, Egypt, Mexico, China), involving seven religions (Catholicism/Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Paganism/Druidism, Satanism, Kemetism, Santa Muerte).

Ladies:
- Over 30 (so far) different female characters complete with sexual encounters. I intend to cover as many kinks/fetishes as I can and will go into greater detail over these as I get further along in the project. 

Weapons:
- Over 50 different weapons to find or buy from various shops. These break down into several general weapon types. Axes, Swords, Maces, Whips, Spears, Flails (long chain variety), Daggers, Shields (which can be used as weapons), and Books (yes books). I expect there will be more as I dream them up.

Artifacts:
- Over 30 (so far) different artifacts to equip. Artifacts are items that while held (only one at a time) and used, will either be thrown as a weapon or trigger a unique effect. Some examples of artifact effects are, raise dead Templar knights as zombie minions, inflict plagues on nearby enemies, and even cause certain NPCs (and even some enemies) to strip naked (because... why not?).

Invocations / Summoning:
- Korvald will discover ancient rituals and incantations that can call entities from other dimensions. They are heavily inspired by the MANY legendary figures from world mythology and religious folklore, and can range from the utterly destructive (Fenrir, Hades, Yฤjลซj and Mฤjลซj, Hastur, Michael, Satan) to nurturing and helpful (Freya, Haniel, Medusa, Eir, Ghanesh). These otherworldly beings are also tightly integrated into the story and in some cases game progression.

Hi,Could you tell me what the version about the "patreon version " in another page is? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

As of this morning, it is 0.5.21

THX ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Another question:  how should I release skills by keyboard? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ I forgot. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

For berzerker attacks, hold up and hit the main weapon attack button (while you have 5 or more rage points). For ally attacks, hold up and hit the offhand attack button (when ally power is full). 

A great game.The game went black after defeating the hidden clerk girl. There are several elevated platforms and corners of the ceiling where characters can easily get stuck.

Thank you for letting me know about the black screen, I will check it out. Regarding the platforms, if you remember which ones then please let me know.

The top of the L-shaped moving bookshelves in the underground library. Square stones on the road back to their village, and walls in caves with totemic pillars. Map boundary to the right of Troll Hill.

These should be fixed in the latest build.

Wow , such a awsome game ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you so very much! :)

how do I access an older version of the game ?

as I understand it, the new version does not have some content

so ok, thanks for your reply. and I will wait for an Android version in the future. ๐Ÿฅฐ

This game is truly inspiring! I did not pay anything for it, but I want to if you are still developing it. I did see you have a Patreon version, but that Game's Version is way below the public one, so it looks to me like it's abandoned. 

I hope you are still developing this masterpiece!!!

I'd love to help you in any way with that, but I have no suitable experience :'( <3

Right now I am developing this to go on to Steam. You can always join my discord to see the latest stuff I am working on and other fun information regarding the future of the game: https://discord.gg/QcaaznP

Have you ever thought about bringing a version for Android?? because I wanted to be able to play on my cell phone, but it depends on the answer you will give me. your game is really amazing!

No official plans for an Android version right now but it is something that I am seriously considering.

How do I open this Door ?

I wondered the same just now. But I only had to beat someone else in that cathedral. :) Then suddenly I could open that door. I guess I got a key, but that's unclear to me. <3

Please, where is the Laguz rune? 

You will get the Laguz rune from the water spirit Nerthus. You will encounter her in the caverns just after you have defeated The Hermit.

Playing the 0.4.05 release I encounter problems when interacting with NPCs in the tavern. Just arrived to the location and everytime I interact with bartender about browsing drinks no menu shows up (as I presume it should) and I can't move away/cancel the dialogue.

The same goes for sitting down at table to speak to the phantom, I sit down, camera zooms in a little and nothing more happens.

Only fix I have encountered to this is hard exiting the game (alt+f4)  and relaunching the game.


:)

thank you for letting me know. I will get this fixed and re-uploaded as soon as I can.

Just a few glitches and the likes i thought were worth mentionning.

After defeating "the hangman" if you try to move down while holding the rope/chain you glitch through the floor and... enter the void between dimensions i guess... Just a glitch i thought was worth mentionning.

Going into what i assume to be the fast travel hall underneath the tavern without having unlocked any destination seems to lead you to get stuck there. Apparently getting there acts as a save point too, leading me to have to start anew - not that big of a deal though, tis fairly early in the game.

Was using patch 0.4.03. Not sure it's a relevant piece of information though.

Thank you for letting me know! I will get these patched ASAP.

(+1)

No problem. I said so a long time ago, but that's a nice game you're making.

You honor me. Thank you.

I'm stuck in that room now, sets me back quite a while :'(. Love the game so far though <3 

( Patch 0.4.07 )

Turns out it wasn't as bad as I thought, since progress was saved regardless, so I just had to run back, and not having achieve every thing again. :D <3

True, I really wanted it on Android, because I don't have a PC!๐Ÿ˜ž

We need android version

Hey man, great game. I'm playing on ver 0.3.94 (don't know if it's the latest) and can't access the sex scene gallery, is this a bug you're aware of? thanks. (p.s I don't know if there's any walkthroughs or tutorials but i can't seem to seduce chel)

(-1)

I was not aware of the scene gallery not working, thank you for letting me know. I will check it out. Regarding Chel, after you have recruited her, you then need to keep her in your party long enough for her Loyalty rating to reach 20. Once that happens, talk to her again in the tavern and hit the seduce button.

glad i could be of help and thanks for the info :)

I have only recently made an itch.io account and I wanted to have my first comment on the site be about how amazing this game is. It's so fun! And the designs are so fun and creative, and the writing is great! I had thought initially it would be a very edgy or overly dark concept, but it has a great amount of heartfelt and funny moments too, balanced with the great darker stuff!

Keep on going, I will keep supporting this content to its fullest!

(+1)

thank you so very much! As long as there are people like you who are enjoying my game, I will never stop working on it.

(+1)

I could never ever appreciate passion like that more! I love talking with other artists and creators! I'll be sure to follow you on all the platforms I can, and see what I can learn in return!

Can this be downloaded on Android ??

(+1)

Great game, keep up the good work. 5/5

Also wanted to point out the game is obviously not dead. You know, having comments one year old and older only. Well the dev log shows it all, but it's recently thriving again.

(+1)

The atmosphere is really cool and creapy! One thing I don't understand after the introduction - where that 'urge' meter is, that shows when you can/must f..ck again? Can you f..ck any character, or only lady's ghosts? Is any m/m content planned?

(+5)

Any female enemy can be corrupted when the urge bar is full.

Regarding the m/m content, yes it is planned. I have future content coming with new/different protagonists, each one having their own story and theme. The storytelling for each character involves a specific subset of fetishes (including male on male, futa, bdsm and others).

(+1)(-1)

Oh, cool! So, there will be like a gay/bi-knight who'll be able to corrupt the male characters?) Can't wait to see it!

(-13)

M+M? Noooooo! It's better not to see this!

(+6)

Well... no one forces you, right?

(-18)

I think if the developer starts adding homosexuality to the game, few people will play it. The Patreons are unlikely to support him. Fortunately, guys who love sex with women are much more fortunate than people like you.

(1 edit) (+11)

Why should it always be straight content vs gay? Why not to have all variations that a dev can implement and let people choose what they like in their gameplay? Cyberpunk 2077 has quite a bit of gay and lesbian content, does just the inclusion of it make you avoid the whole game?

(+7)

I think I should clarify something regarding this post. The subset's of fetishes that I have yet to cover, will be in OTHER games that are a part of this series.

I will be posting more conceptual fragments of each one as I get them created, all of which you can see on my series website. Apocryphal Saga  

As a quick example of each announced game's major areas of focus:

Book of Korvald: M+F, Nuns/Angels, Generally Vanilla

Book of Mallum: M+F, Succubi/Demons, BDSM

Book of Rjianna: F+M, F+F, Giants/Gods, FemDom

Book of Hymnix: M+M, M+F, Aristocracy, Humiliation

Book of Psulam: M/F+M/F (a wild one), Shapeshifting, Tantric, Primal

With regard to Korvald's story, the fetishes will remain M+F. The reasoning for this is simply due to his role in procreating an entire bloodline of unique people, most of whom will be visited as protagonists in their own respective games.

The majority of these stories have already been written with each protagonist having their own special view of the world around them. Writing in this way, gave me a chance to heavily leverage perception as a storytelling tool. This also allows me to bundle each story neatly with it's own sexually driven themes, and to do so in a way that makes sense for that particular character and their environment.

My goals with this project are simple. 

  • Try and tell an enjoyable story with believable and relatable characters. 
  • Design game mechanics that are fun to play, without having to depend on the erotic content to give it legs.
  • Try my best to create satisfying erotic scenes, either through animations or written situations.
  • Explore as many things as I can that people find erotic or just plain hot.

So at the end of this journey, I hope to appeal to as many people as possible with at least one of the offerings in this series. There may be things in one game that don't appeal to certain groups of people, but that's okay, I got you covered in one of the others. 

I have also toyed with the idea of making an SFW option for each one, down the road. This way if you wanted to play through say Book of Hymnix just to experience the story but did not want to engage in the M+M content, you could do just that.

Great update!

I recommend everyone to play! Good game!

I like your idea of traveling through the worlds/countries, dimension, time and battle with followers of different religions, I hope others will be interested. I don't know how you can put it together, but I hope you can. If you can, then put your enemies to sleep so that they are not so easy to defeat. Just a lot of weapons, but there is little difference in it, one or two blows are enough to kill the enemy. Maybe you need to make sure that the enemies were able to put a block or how to better defend, attack, shoot for example at a player from a distance? It's too easy to play, there are a lot of lives, and the enemies are very easy. I would like to have a normal difficulty in the game, but it's too easy. Many will not resort to using artifacts, etc., if enemies can already be killed with a single blow of an axe. Various items I think should help you survive when it is difficult to fight with enemies and do not want to waste your life, and for this, the enemies must be strong and cause damage. This personally my conclusions, after as played.

Now about the erotic content in the game: it is there, it is already pleasing. That you plan to add various fetishes in the future, etc. correctly, I support with all my hands. If you plan a deeper disclosure of female characters (mini-bosses and bosses) in the history of the game, their actions, weaknesses to various kinds of sexual actions/fetishes, then this will naturally have to add more dialogues with the characters to reveal various interesting facts that they will share about themselves, enemies, and which may be important in the game's plot. The text part of your game is very important, so focus on it. Especially since Korvald at any time can conduct a dialogue with Qhroth'un and in this way it is easy to convey to players interesting information necessary for the plot. And to make sex scenes look more interesting, you can add dialogues between characters at this moment, or reading the thoughts of a female character using Qhroth'un and telepathic communication. Can connect even Qhroth'un to talk to the two of us it was not boring :-) Various fetishes of domination, submission and much more with a good imagination, this way you can better convey and show, if necessary.

When is the update?

Uploading it now.

What a crazy game.

When i defeated that ennemy a lot of them spawned 

Terrifying...

This should be fixed in 0.0.16

THIS GAME have beauty gameplay ...why version for console ..i know problem pegi 18+

Thank you! Also thank you for making and sharing a game play video, I appreciate it. 

The video points out the bugged finishing strike that I really need to get fixed LOL.

I am not sure how I would approach giving this game a console release to be honest but I think a version without the NSFW stuff could work. This is something I will look into once I am further along with the development.
