    VHS Story


    VHS Story is going to be an epic story for PC, MAC, Linux.




    About the game
    VHS Story is a game with 80-90s atmosphere about a guy who likes to fight and dreams to become the greatest fighter in the world.
    Together with the hero you start as a small town fighter who fights on the streets and underground fight clubs and try to become the best of the best.
    Throughout the whole game you have to make decisions which may affect the Hero’s character and fate, and will determine whether he will become rich and famous or a couch potato in front of the TV.
    You will not only be a fighter along with Hero, but you are responsible for your daily life, your diet, your physical training, to prepare for the fights and all the fighter’s responsibilities to become successful.
    It is all up to you!…. whether Hero will become a well-known fighter and a celebrity or devote himself to the fight against evil or maybe….fall into the dark side.




    Main features

    • Nostalgia of the 80s and 90s.
    • Lots of references to movies and games 80 – 90s. (i.e. if you get a job as pizza guy – it’s a chance to meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Alligators).
    • A lot of irony.
    • Leveling up and character progression.
    • Perks: Some are partly gained at birth and others after quests have been completed and come to a decision. (Perks during the game are very important).
    • Nonlinear story line. You have an opportunity to prepare for every fight, to study and analyze the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses.
    • Don’t manage to beat an opponent, try to buy information about his weaknesses in advance, or for example poison his beloved hamster.



    Current progress
    We've been working on this game for one month. And today we are ready to present you pre-alpha version.

    Unfortunately this version does not have a lot of what the final game will….;-), but we were able to implement the basic game mechanics. Current alpha version has a time-limited game session (you are just given a certain amount of food in the fridge). The player’s goal is to win as many fights as possible during this limited time. Each new competitor is stronger than the previous one, so you need to train harder to prepare for the fight. You may use various workout equipment to increase strength, stamina, agility and to improve your fight skills. Of course, you have to buy this equipment first. Money can be earned by winning a fight or by taking a regular and boring job.

    As a result, the alpha version of VHS Story came out very competitive and replay able. As we already mentioned, this version does not include: the main plot, quests and perks, relationships with other characters and other game zones. The game interface is far from the final version and the music utilized was taken from free libraries.

    We are "GameJam"- a small indie game studio based Saint-Petersburg, Russia. The studio was founded four years ago by two friends.

    We were crazy about making games and had experience in programming, but had no knowledge of game development. The whole history of studio’s growing up is a struggle for the opportunity to make games that we want.

    At the moment the studio is composed of 3 people, and we have experience in creating commercial social and mobile games, but we’ve always wanted to make a game that has a soul, in which we ourselves would be happy to play.


    Our plans
    Now we are going to have a functional beta version in 2-3 months. Then we will go to the Steam Greenlight and Kickstarter to get money for tons of fine pixel art content :eyebrows:
