Important note, you may need to turn your volume up higher than normal fangames due to the balance being adjusted for speakers.

This is my entry to the I Wanna Game Jam, it was made in two days and is also my first release. It is a special work containing a fairy tale written and told by myself. Please enjoy with the whole family, and with your audio on. Also, please do not upload screenshots other than the Title screen, wouldn't want to spoil the plot!

Also, here's a test you can do afterwards if you really want to about the story, cause why not?!

Legend of Brom is perhaps one of the rarest things in fangames, a completely new idea. As far as I know, nothing else does something like this. It's essentially an audiobook with art, and it's really interesting. The story itself is nothing super special, but has an interesting conclusion, and plays with genre tropes in an interesting way. The art is actually really well done, and a perfect accompaniment to the story. Overall, I'm so happy to see something like this, and hope more games like this come out. It's fully terra incognita for fangames, and even just non-joke stories in general are mostly unexplored as well. I'm always a fan of uniquity, and this is no exception.

even if there is no gameplay itself, the execution is something that i've never expected from an iwbtg fangame. this is pure gold.

A relaxing story-telling game made for the game jam in a very short time.

Graphics are very simple and enough to give a powerful note on the story told within the game.
It's an elegant way to make a first entry in the fangame world and also a rare treat to have a story explicitly told with overall narration.

But since it's a first game, it is interesting to note the slight contrast in the game and how the story is being told to us.

The background music does follow the action of the text very well, getting more or less active when needed during the tale, as well as the pictures / frames.
In comparison, the author feels hesitant, which is understandable given the nature of the unique challenge he gave to himself.
It is an unusual point to bring up, but if the series follows the trend, then it could be useful.

Given the story and involvment in the making process, I hope that the future that awaits the series does add some spice in the narration.
It can be descriptive and relaxed, but even that, like in dialogues, has to follow up the intensity of the story at some point.

I do think that in this case, the tone was superb for the beginning part and gets lost / fades afterwards.
When the first action frame comes up, we see the follow up with the more intense background colouring
and hear it with a more active / expressive tone in the music.

Yet we still have the same descriptive manner used in the very beginning that remains.
Spice it up ! Come on show us what you have !

By using some bits of imagination, I'm sure you can come up with something very nice easily.
It kinda needs practice, but it's more like a habit if you never tried it yourself.

I'm waiting for the next chapter and for a story warmed by your heart.
