Dim is the RPG-Platformer I am currently working on in construct 2. Dim will take you on a black horror adventure through all of the scary old folklore/tales you may or may not have read up on. The game will feature much more dark scenery and decorations than what I have created thus far. The picture is just a mock-up to give you a sort of preview of whats to come. None of the current graphics are final, everything is subject to change. My plan is to eventually have this designed for mobile but as of currently, it will only be developed for PC/Mac. I would also like to add this to steam when it is completed. If you are experienced in construct 2, want to help develop DIM and are willing to profit share than please contact me via PM or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Sorry for the blurry images, I had to upload it to photobucket.com)

Quest 1- The Black Dog Of Hanging Hills
Your first quest begins when you pass through the hanging hills. The scenery here is quite dreadful, Hundreds of body's hanging from trees. Blood and worms and swarms of flies. I'm not so sure why anyone would even pass by here... But you did... Start your quest by speaking with a local of the hills. He will give you a bit of history on the hanging hills and send you on your way to observe the area. As your walking through here You notice a small black dog following you through the area. If you search the crates nearby you will find a piece of cooked meat. give this to the dog and he will go away. If you go back to the local and tell him about the black dog you saw, the man will start to panic and get upset. You ask him what all the worry was about, after all it was just a cute stray right? The man tells you about the legend of the black dog on hanging hills. He said "If you see the dog once it shall be for joy; and if twice, it shall be for sorrow; and the third time, You shall die.’” He laughed. “That’s just superstition.” You tell the man you don't believe in superstitions and move along. Wandering through the hills you see the dog again only this time he has an evil stare and hardened blood on his coat. You pay no mind and convince your self this is a mere coincident. When you arrive back at the main area of the hills something is different.. The local you have been talking to has vanished. This cannot be good. You start moving around looking for him but nothing, until you stumble across a trail of blood that is. You follow the trail which of course leads you to the locals dead corpse. When you examine the body you notice teeth and claw marks all over. Your only option is to head back t the hills no and guess what? This will be your third time you've seen the black dog. Fight time! Will you see death like the legend says? Or will your reign victorious?
Quest 2- The Jersey Devil
Your Second quest will begin when you talk to a Lost soul. He seems restless so you ask him if he needs any help. He replies with "I just died last week but for some reason am still here..." You tell him maybe there is something he still needs to do before he can move on from this plane. He says "Well actually, my dearest wife Daisy is pregnant and I need to know that our baby is okay. Will you make sure my baby is delivered healthy?" You tell the soul you will help him and venture off to find daisy. When you do find daisy in her shack she will be surrounded by women trying to help deliver the baby. You tell her about her husbands soul and daisy requests that you deliver the baby for her. Blood is squirting everywhere in the house but you manage to deliver the baby safe and sound. Daisy thanks you for your good deed and rewards you with a bit of gold. As soon as you are about to leave the house the door locks and you are trapped. Dark horror music begins to play and the room erupted with screams. The new born child grew at an enormous rate, becoming taller than a man and changing into a beast which resembled a dragon, with a head like a horse, a snake-like body and bat's wings. You must defeat the jersey devil to fully complete the quest.

The actual development in construct 2 has not even begun. Currently I am trying to work on all the graphics and tiles needed for the game, and all of the lore and concept ideas. This way when it comes down to development I know what features i need incorporated.
-Feel free to add any suggestions, like features or certain scary folklore that you may know of!
