Story line in progress and a mini update

Ok so I have not had much time to work on Life Stream much but I have good news to say that the Story line is in progress in my little free time.Pretty much the beginning of the game is complete. Story Line, mapping, characters in place. I just need to set up monsters. I am figuring out what to do with bosses however. After that then the beginning is truly finished.

I have decided to change up a few things for dramatic twists. Magnus Pry, if some of you read, was apart of the Great War but on the opposing side. I decided to put him on the good side to give it more of a twist. Figuring out this bad guy used to be good. I have always liked that in games. Kinda like Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII. Used to be in SOLDIER then goes bad. Same applies here with Magnus.

Other than that, Monday I am uploading the promised Screen shots.

I have been a bit busy lately with work and such and finishing up Final Fantasy VII on the PSP (which crashed on the 3rd disk and could not continue) so now that my obstacles are out of the way, I have started picking back up Life Stream. Right now I am working on graphics. Trying to finish up bits a pieces that are not finished or started. It is going great so far. Soon I will be posting screen shots of Life Stream on both here and, Look for it.

Crediting sprites

I have decided to create a Game Design building (like in pokemon) and you get to meet the creators of the game. I am making sprites for most of my major helpers or key helpers.
Here is the sprites I have made so far. I tried to use the avatars of all of these. Some look nothing like theirs or others had no avatar so I just made up one

What is going on


Life Stream focuses on the story of Koji, a curious man who investigates ancient supernatural forces how they were manipulated. When the public suspects a mysterious man may have something to do with the resurgence of supernatural forces, Koji is dispatched to look into his motives and it isn't long before Koji is following this man and researching the history of several events and artifacts.

The second act focuses on the mysterious man, his motives and his goals. The second act of the game is also where a majority of the boss battles take place. Boss fights consist of fighting humans and animals alike, most of them under the control of Magnus Pry.

Finally, in the third act you try and find a way to defeat Magnus Pry while solving
supernatural mysteries and delving into the characters own intricate histories.

Powers and Ability Attacks

Every one on the planet owns a special power. Powers of levitation, mind reading, superior strength, invisibility and so on. These powers are brought on by the planet's Life Stream. The Life Stream is a river, or a current, of energy that flows deep inside the planet. The stream contains special powers in it. Powers beyond measure. When a person is yet halfway developed in the womb, its spirit is strong enough to temporarily leave it's body and travel to the Life Stream. Once to the stream, it enters it and reaches out to grab at a power. Once it accomplishes this task, it returns to it's body and continues to develop until birth. Upon birth, the power remains in a dormant state until by an emotional distress in the body, results in the power unlocking and coming out. Certain powers have even been known to be there even atbirth. But are so few and rare that not much is known why it is. Powers range from strong to weak. Some people have similar powers as others but no two is ever the same. While one might be able to read your thoughts, others, can read every thought you ever had since you were yet born. While one can become invisible, others, can not only become invisible, but also pass through walls.
Ability Attacks are those with the ability to cause some kind of pain or some sort of disorientation. Whether mental or physical. Not every one has a power that will qualify as an Ability Attack, but everyone can use their power in battle to some sort of advantage. Examples of Ability Attacks would be causing one mental pain, thinking you are in pain when you are not. Causing a wall of water to crash down on an opponent. Causing a person to think they are else where doing something else than they really are when in fact they are just standing there. There is also protective Ability Attacks. Causing a defensive shield to shroud the person or group. Many exist out there.

In the Beginning


Since the dawn of time, World Peace had thrived. People of different creeds, races, gender and ethnicity all lived in harmony, animals were tame and friendly, it seemed that even the forces of nature had found balance.

Back then, everyone on the planet possessed a special talent, a inner strength. The usefulness of these powers ranged from grandiose to insignificant, from elemental manipulation to hyperempathy.

Even though the world was still, it would not be long before an evil force culminated to threaten the peace. This dark, malicious force was helmed by a villianous man wroth with anger and empowered by a seemingly never ending life span. Backed by loyal followers, the leader and his army was nigh on invincible.

The leader's patience and cold, calculating ways saw him through the loss of many allies and the resistance of those who would oppose him.

To fortify himself, the leader wore an impenetrable armour made from a pastiche of metals and otherwordly materials. Impervious to fire, thunder, explosions, metal weaponry and even the supernatural, the leader was invincible. No one could stop him, anyone who stood against him would be felled by his hand.

Then, there was reprieve; hope.
A man from the western hemisphere, in the town of Dape, decided to fight back against the Dark Leader. His supernatural ability manifested as a telekinetic control over the corporeal. This was considered a miracle. No one else had ever possessed this ability, this energy. At best, people had simulated flight using telekinesis, but never over an object that wasn't themselves.

The man from Dape tried to stop the dark leader. For years they battled, but neither side would ever emerge as the decisive victor.

Then, on a seemingly ordinary day, the man from Dape found a peculiar material in an old crater. The material would not bend, scratch or become flawed in any way. "Could this have something to do with the dark leader's armor?" Further study revealed the material to be of the same compisition as the dark leader's armor. The hero also learned that the material was not of this planet and had come from a

It was then that it occured to The Hero: all their weapons were made from simple metal and crude minerals, how could these weapons stand up to armor forged in the vast cold and darkness of space?

The Hero sought to make a weapon with the meteorite, but found that no one had ever successfullly synthesized a weapon using the meteorite. His attempts to fortify a sword with meteor shards failed.

After much trial and error, The Hero deduced that the previous syntheses had failed because there was not enough meteorite to empower the weapon. The Hero also decided that if the Dark Leader's armour was only part meteorite, then he could break the armor with a weapon that was made of only meteorite.. He searched the world over to find more of the precious meteorite, collecting enough to make a mighty sword.

Rather than temper the weapon with fire or thunder or pressure, The Hero used his telekinetic power to forge the weapon, adhering the material together to make a sword out of pure meteorite shard.

This time, the meteor sword held together and was dubbed Yamikito: The Sword Of Dark Energy. Pulsing with a fearsome, dark aura, this sword lived up to it's title. Strangely, only the young Hero who was pure of heart could wield this sword. Perhaps it had to do with the telekinetic bond that forged the sword. Maybe he was linked to sword through telepathy, no one knew why, but only The Hero could use the
Yamikito. with this new sword, The Hero set out to do battle against The Dark Leader. Even though just wielding the sword caused The Hero pain, he attacked The Dark Leader and defeated him once and for all.

In the end, The Hero sacrificed much
to quell the darkness. He'd known great pain, fear and hardships. Even though he'd defeated the Dark Leader, he'd sustained grave injuries. To make a full recovery, he would require years of intensive care.

Though he made marked improvement during his recovery he died tragically. Some say he lost the will to live, other say he comitted suicide, being unable to live with his injuries and others say The Hero became unable to live without the Yamikito, having formed a symbiotic relationship with his weapon.

This where The Hero's records end.
