I have absolutely no interest in making this into a game. My only grand ambition is to make a ~30 second teaser.
In the meantime, I am producing:1) This poster in production.
2) A page for the antagonists.
3) A page for the love interest.4) This animated map of the world!
If there was a musical genre to represent this story, it would be Industrial and EBM. The broad theme would be to analyze war, its alternatives, and its supporting media and propaganda from a Utilitarian standpoint.
Minor themes include Helena's reaction to being a female in the military, to the death of a loved one, to hatred for an antagonist, to affection from a student, to the introduction of other women into her unit, and lastly to her fading hopes of becoming an aircraft test pilot. Some of these would get their own arc.
I guess next I'll post info about characters and setting. Then, after that post, a very brief breakdown of the story.
