Hello everyone!

We are a small group of people called Team Galanx who are currently passionately working on our first indie game project, called Konstandin.

Konstandin is a story driven game, made in the RpgMaker VX Ace engine. It falls under multiple genres such as horror, mystery, puzzle etc.
The idea for this project came as a result of our desire to show the world something inspired from our rich Albanian folklore, combined with a modern setting. And for us there is no better way, than turning our story into a playable engaging rpg!

The story:
A year has passed since the 26 year old Rinor Avdiu and his wife Aulona moved to a village called Buroja. The couple enjoys a relatively happy marital life, though the village seems to hold an old eerie legend in which Rinor is unconsciously partaking. The legend of a cursed knight, called Konstandin. The story revolves around Rinor who tries to find the meaning behind it, while he faces horrific mental and physical challenges.

Characters:
Konstandin’s main cast consists of 7 people, each of them having a different and memorable personality. These are our playable characters:

Rinor Avdiu – A 26 year old, married man that earns his living through art commissions and design. He is a very carefree and forgetful person that loves spending his time by playing online games. Though he doesn’t look like it, he is physically strong and capable.

Aulona Avdiu – A 25 year old historian, married to Rinor. Most of the time she is occupied with doing history research and cleaning up her husband’s mess. She is usually reasonable, but suffers from mood swings every now and then. Pretends to be brave, but is easily scared.

Tringa Fazliu – A 14 year old student that lives in the “Linda” orphanage. She watches especially over Mona, whom she sees as a little sister.
Tringa is a smart and opportunistic girl. Her heart is in the right place, which you can’t say about her vocabulary.

Mona Limani – A 7 year old student that lives in the “Linda” orphanage. Although still young, Mona has high analytical skills. She is a shy and docile girl with interest in artistic expression. Mona has tendencies of being a people pleaser and tries to help wherever she can.

Risks and challenges:
Despite all the preparations we made in order to finish Konstandin, there might be a lot of unforeseen circumstances which can stop production, from the sudden death of our developers, to equipment malfunction.
