Role and Production details
- Pay type:
In 1993, an RPG video game came out for the Super Nintendo called The Secret of Mana. It is set in a high-fantasy world that revolves around the concept of Mana. Mana is a Polynesian concept of power, often in a supernatural context. A comparable thing would be “the force” in Star Wars, but also just the very essence of creation in the universe.
The creator admits the influences for the game is a mix of Alice in Wonderland, The Sword in the Stone, Lord of the Rings, Japanese folklore, and the Finnish cartoon, The Moomins (!). The world is a mish-mash of a time period with fairy tale like places existing, but also steam punk styled technology such as trains and airships.
To date, it remains my favourite game ever that I still play, but more importantly, the impression it had on me as a child was immense. That might sound dumb, but its story, music, concept, and characters shaped so much of who I became. Concepts of loss, friendship, and an interest in spirituality were all imparted on me through this. It was the very definition of an adventure, and I wanted so much to be real.
"So, why not make that happen" I asked.
"I will!" I said.
I will be adapting the game into a webseries that will be a combination of a mass cosplaying fantasy adventure web series mixed with in-game (voiced over) footage, for certain parts where budgets will just not allow. This will be a unique concept not yet used in a web series before to combine these mediums in this way.
This game has a good fan dedication following in England and Germany (massive over there for some reason) and I know that people would be very interested to watch it. I have confidence that it could be a very good viral hit if done right. It follows the basic game script to some degree, but with deviations, detours, and rewrites/additional writing to the dialogue.
