Explore a mysterious planet controlled by the psyche of the main character.
Sometimes in life we experience a trauma that breaks us profoundly. This trauma leaves us empty and unable to cope. We all have different mechanisms we employ to try to pick up the pieces. For some, it involves retreating deeply inside until time can mend the psychic damage.
Red Goddess: Inner World mixes the tenants of a connected-world Metroidvania game with a strong focus on narrative. Both the Metroidvania gameplay and the narrative work quite well. The combination of both aspects makes helping Divine mend her psyche and regain her godlike powers a compelling prospect.
What’s Red goddess?
Red Goddess: Inner World is an adventure game in an epic journey and features mystical-fantasy storytelling in a universe filled with symbolism. The atmosphere is conveyed through an unique art style with beautiful graphics and immersive gameplay. Red Goddess lets players explore a non-linear map, and it emphasizes back-tracking with new moves and skills to access new areas, but combat, with its simple red and blue factions mechanic is where it truly shines to make Red Goddess a memorable gaming experience:
- Action adventure platformer.
- Explore an epic magical world (Metroid-vania style).
- Unlock powers of Rage and Fear, and fight deadly enemies in fast paced red & blue combat system.
- Possess and move elements of the planet to uncover the mysteries from the past of the main character.
- Combination of brawl and platform action in an epic and compelling story.
- Fight against the “dark thoughts” and an invisible enemy “The Narrator”.
Our title features new and progressively more deadly challenges for the player: unlocking new powers and unravelling the mysteries, survive attacks from dangerous creatures, solving puzzles and defeating the dangerous bosses.
The biggest asset in Divine’s arsenal is the ability to transform into two different forms fueled by rage and fear: control 3 playable characters with their own unique skills and abilities. As the game progresses, Divine needs to juggle both enemies and switch consistently between forms to defeat them. You can shift between Divine, Rage and Fear characters. When you do select one character, the other half appears as a “mask” of the main character (either Rage or Fear persona). The mask appears following you everywhere in the game, and could turn against if you activate some traps.
You can play the game with Divine, the main character to jump, doble jump, talk and interact, and also psyche power: telekinesis.
Unlock Powers. You will have to find and collect pieces of an ancient armor to unlock new skills and enter new zones.
Possess and move elements of the planet to uncover the mysteries from the past of the main character. You also can possess the minds of enemies to use them in combat.
Fire Ball Power: Divine character power, it consists to shoot a small fireball to destroy obstacles and stun the enemies. Once stunned, Divine will be able to possess them to move and explode their bodies like a bomb, doing a magical explosion with area damage.
The game achieves its connected world retreads easily by requiring Divine to track down different crystals throughout her inner world. These crystals allow Divine to visit new areas previously blocked off.
What’s Red Goddess’s Story?
The story resolves around a young goddess named Divine who is haunted by her own subconscious. Something unknown is tearing her apart from the inside out, destroying her mind and her soul. Deciding to right this wrong, she enters into her own subconscious and discovers a planet within her own mind. Filled with trees, mountains and caves, she will journey this world and discover what her true connection to it is. And more importantly, who she is.
…..but soon we realize that there is more to this adventure than what we first thought. Explore a mysterious Planet driven by the subconscious mind of the main character: Divine.
Who are the main characters?
Divine: The primary playable character and a goddess as young as the world she watches over. She is very useful to jump, double jump, speak, and interract with elements of the planet. But her main skill is to move objects with her telekinesis power to reach new zones. With these unique skills, can she discover her connection with the world she loves.
Rage: The first mask of Divine is a being of anger and muscle. Able to overpower red enemies with brute strength alone
Fear: The second mask of Divine is a being of almost ghostly fright. Swift and cold she is perfect against blue enemies.
Narrator: A nameless narrator that lurks the world of the young Divine. Though unsure of his true form, he can’t hide his malicious intent to Divine. He’s responsible for provoking the “Dark Thoughts”, blocking Divine from other zones of the world, and even make the world itself go against her. He can also make Divine and her sides dought themselves and attack each other. Can a monster truly be above a god?
Negative Thoughts: The primary enemies of Divine as she explores her world. With every zone infested with these things, they have adapted with the land to go against Divine. Leaving them alone will only cause the world to corrupt.
The dark tunnels hide horrible creatures, followers of Divine´s negative thoughts. Little by little, they are corrupting every part of the planet.
