General info about the modification:
Trudvang is an indie project for Unreal Engine 3. It is an rpg mod based on one of the most popular swedish paper roleplaying games on the market. At the moment we are in concept and planning stage. We are working with the fan community around the original game to create a digital version of the roleplaying game that is as close to the original pen and paper world as possible.
We have permission from the company behind the original game to create a game based on their game world. At the moment our focus is on planning and concepts, we will then focus on creating a playable demo. This will later be shown to the community so everyone will get an idea of what we are trying to make. Also this will work as a test for us to see how well we can work together as a team.
Game world info:
Trudvang is a fantasy world very much influenced by ancient nordic mythology, tales and legends. It is a dark world where the powers of nature are greater than men, elves and dwarves. In the darkness of the deep forests ancient secets lie hidden under moss covered rocks, great treasures lie hidden in the cold water of the forest lakes.
Trolls hide in the shadows as frightened animals during the daytime, but in the night, when the sun goes down and the night comes they leave their hiding places. Hear the sound of an owl in the distance. Behind a that big rock you think you hear the sound of branches breaking, and in the dark of the night you are almost sure you can see yellow eyes watching every step you take from a distance...
Trudvang is a world filled with great mystery and legends, it is a dark setting where you always have the feeling that you are not quite safe. You are only a small character in a greater story but you can and must make a difference anyway.
We are inspired by the works of John Bauer, the finish national epos Kalevala, the beowulf legends but most of all ancient nordic mythology and legends.
