Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 29 Jul,2015
Bride of the Nile game is about a legendary yearly festival for the Nile river originated in ancient Egypt where the Egyptians were believed to sacrifice a virgin to the Nile.
The festival is actually held yearly until now in modern Egypt, of course without sacrificing anything :)
The story is deep, with plot twists and based on historical true events, with different themes. You will take part of historical battles between pharaohs, Persians, Arabs and Byzantines. You will play as a Byzantine noble fighting to save the girl he loves, you will also play as an Egyptian girl escaping from an oppressive military rule....
The PC version will have simple stealth and battle gameplay.
It should be also available on steam after we get green light (link below).
The story begins a long time ago, in ancient Egypt, right before the fall of the ancient Egyptian empire on the hands of the Persians.
The story begins in ancient Egypt during the last days of the Pharaonic empire, before their fall on the hands of the Persian invaders and the betrayal of some of the Pharaoh's military leaders.
The story then shifts to the 7th century BC during the Byzantine rule of Egypt.
You will meet Mary, a very beautiful Egyptian woman. Her mother is afraid that she might be chosen as the Nile’s virgin so she orders her to only come out at night where no one can see her beautiful face. One time she got out with her friends to play by the bank of Nile river, and one Byzantine noble man called Daniel saw her face from his family's nearby palace and he immediately fell in love with her. ♥
He tries to talk to her and they eventually fall in love.

Until we start to create the complete 3D game, we decided to create 'Bride of the Nile' as a story (visual novel) and it is already released to android play store in Japanese.
We need $55,000 to create the complete 3D adventure game 'Bride of the Nile'. And to release it on android, iOS and PC devices.
More funding over the target will allow us to add extra levels, more 3D or 2D anime cut-scenes and add full voice acting.
I we did not get the whole $55,000 fund before the campaign ends, we (the developers) will get nothing, and the people who funded will not get their money back, instead, they will have their funds in the zoomal account and they will be able to fund other projects.
