EPIC Fantastical Story with a VIDEO TRAILER — Black Shadow by Alex Af. MUST READ


Okay, so some shameless self-promotion from me here.

Sooooo, my story includes:

  • choices that matter (4 possible endings)
  • 4 mini-games
  • animated overlays and custom backgrounds (ALL the backgrounds are custom)
  • special art scene (everything, including the cover is drawn by yours truly)
  • and, of course, a captivating plot with multiple unexpected twists!

If you are still not convinced… THEN

Here is the video trailer I made so that you can get a better idea what the story is about:

Thank you very much! I really hope you will enjoy it! :see_no_evil::see_no_evil::see_no_evil:


Thank you very much! I think the description works really well! Yes, it might be a bit vague but at least I believe it sounds intriguing! So thanks a lot for your help!



I’m 99.9% sure I’ll love it, I couldn’t help but get a Assassins Creed: Black Flag kind of vibe, especially seeing the name ‘Altair’ (even though he isnt from black flag) :grin: I’ll share your story on my new IG too!


I LOVE ASSASIN’S CREED :heart_eyes::heart_eyes::heart_eyes: And Black Flag was one of my favourite editions. Actually, I was looking for a name to fit the character and when I came across Altair and saw its meaning that made me realise a lot of thing about one of my favourite games :joy::joy::joy::woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming::woman_facepalming::joy::joy::joy:


I started singing the sea shanty’s at work after playing it, they are so catchy :joy::joy: Creed 3 was my favourite because it was the first one I played! I really am looking forward to reading your story :heart:


Wow, that trailer is damn near professional! I gotta check it out sometime, thanks for tagging me.


I love shanty’s! I wish I could include some of those in my story as music… My all time favourite is a Drunken Sailor. Would always sing along when playing even though my voice is horrible :joy::joy::joy:

Thank you so much again!!!
