Andrew Zucchetto's Background Story:

Andrew Zucchetto is a 20 year old young man living in a rual suburban area, living a rather short distance from a vast, uninhabited forest. He has a full driver's lisence, which he's had for one year already, and a Ford Ranger truck which he bought with the money he inherited from his uncle who died in Australia 3 years ago. Andrew passed high school with an average of C+ and completed College. Andrew took Cadet training for 7 years and plans to join the marines when he's 23. Andrew carries a combat and survival knife with him everywhere he goes. One of Andrew's best friends is named Daniel Ray. One evening, Andrew invited Daniel over to his house to hang out and watch movies. After a while, the two friends go bored and deicded to drive Andrew's Ford Ranger up to the forest to go on a hike through the woods at night. After over an hour of hiking, Daniel decides for them to turn back and head home before it gets too late (at this point it's almost 2:00 in the morning). A few minutes after they turn back, Daniel sees a dark, shadowy figure running through the mist beyond the trees aroud them. The two friends soon realize that the figure is stalking them. Andrew assumes that it must be an escaped convict or a criminal hiding in the forest, and that he could very well harm or kidnap them. Andrew and Daniel begin to run away from it, but the shadowy threat follows them. Andrew and Daniel are eventually chased to what appear to be a set of metal, rusted doors built into the side of a hill in the middle of the forest. The two friends work together to force the door open, and rush into the bunker, shutting the metal doors behind them. Inside the bunker, Andrew panics and rushes into the darkness and hits his head on something, which causes him to be knocked out. When Andrew awakens, Daniel is gone and the door is stuck shut, so Andrew sets out to find out what happend to Daniel.

Daniel Ray's Background Story:


Daniel Ray is a 19 year old young man who lives in the more busy part of the region that Andrew and him both live in, about 10 minutes drive from Andrew's house. Daniel is not actually much younger than Andrew, he was just born later in the year so Andrew's birthday came first. Andrew and Daniel have been good friends since they met in grade 10 of high school, after Daniel transferd from another high school. Daniel is much smarter than Andrew, having got a consistancy of As and Bs throughout High School. Unlike Andrew, Daniel went straight to University instead of College, and is studying to be a physicist. Dispite this, and since Andrew and Daniel live so close to one another, the two remianed in contact after High School. One day, Andrew phoned Daniel and asked if he'd like to come over to his house and watch movies and hang out. Daniel, not having much better to do, decided to ride his bike over to Andrew's house and hang out. After a while, Daniel gets bored and decides that it would be a good idea to go on a hike in the woods a kilometer from Andrew's house. After over an hour of hiking, Daniel decides for them to turn back and head home. Not long after they turn back, Daniel sees a dark, shadowy figure running through the mist beyond the trees aroud them. The two friends soon realize that the figure is stalking them. Assuming that it's some criminal, or at best a hobo, Andrew and Daniel begin to run away from it, but the shadowy threat follows them. Andrew and Daniel are eventually chased to what appears to be a set of metal, rusted doors. The two friends work together to force the door open, and rush into the bunker, shutting the metal doors behind them. Andrew runs madly into the darkness and is knocked unconcious. What happens to Daniel after this is unknown.

Now things are beginning to develop nicely. Very well put together LordX ! You have a fine gift with the " written " word. All around good character development.

Thank you for having Daniel go missing or he'd have figured the whole thing out in one map and then where would we be ? We'll initially get to play as Andrew then ( at least he has the IQ and skills for combat ! ).

Yay!Just got some time to comment this,so,here goes:

Really nice history,it looks exactly like a redaction that I made as a test here in brazil,but well,you just said things that should be better without,You said too much about the main character,which wasn't needed,only in-game.Make something like "then,he lost his memory",to make the game more creepy and dark,and in the game,"now everything is making sense!",these things got it?Just liked it.

So many horror and mystery games/stories use the concept of amnesia, so I wanted to make it more like your character has an actual life, and that there is nothing special about him, putting you more 'in the shoes' of Andrew. It is also important to the story that he does not loose his memory. Besides that, it makes it more believable.

Another thing is that the fact that Andrew was in Cadets gives a reason for him to be able to use guns/carry a knife.
