Get ready to unleash your inner vampire! This upcoming RPG video game is currently in the early stages of development, but it's already packed with dark, thrilling lore that will have you hooked from the start.


Harrowed World: Portents In Red (Working Title: Project Nightowl), promises to be the ultimate experience for all fans of the undead. Immerse yourself in the sinister and captivating Harrowed World, where danger lurks around every corner.


With a test build already in place, the atmosphere of Harrowed World: Portents In Red is beginning to take shape. As stock assets are replaced with new original designs and the environment of the game is crafted, the world will only become more immersive. The foundational systems for health, blood, feeding, and blood loss are already in place though they will need to be streamlined and improved over time. You can drain human NPCs of their blood but beware of your character’s own blood loss over the course of the game to power your undead body. Currently, the blood loss system is set to drain the player at a breakneck pace, but fear not, this is just for demonstration purposes. It will be tweaked to ensure the best possible gameplay. I’ve got big plans for the feeding system to ensure it reacts to the player's choices, so get ready for a truly interactive experience.


With progress bars now available on the Harrowed World website, you can easily keep track of the evolution of the game as it takes shape. I want to be as transparent as possible about the development process and acknowledge that creating a seamless gameplay experience is an ongoing journey. As such, I may need to fine-tune the progress bars as I go along to ensure they provide you with the most accurate information possible. While I'm keeping certain aspects of the game a secret until the time is right, I can tell you that the surprises I have in store for you will be well worth the wait.


Despite being a solo developer and having faced various setbacks, I’m pouring my heart and soul into this project with careful attention paid to every detail from the storyline and NPCs to the player’s abilities and the UI design. While a game of this intended scale is generally worked on by a large team of people, I am committed to making Harrowed World: Portents In Red a reality. But I need your support! Help me generate interest in this game and Harrowed World as a whole by sharing it with your friends and family. And if you're feeling extra generous and you are able, please consider purchasing products from the Harrowed World store or perhaps leaving a tip.


Thank you for any and all support you can give. The night is young but I can't wait for you to sink your teeth into Harrowed World: Portents In Red. Like and share this blog post and visit the Portents In Red main page for more.
