Prologue: The Thing in the Weald

Walkerman is an Adventure Game/Visual Novel about hunting supernatural creatures. These creatures follow rules similar to old folk tales about vampires and garlic, or werewolves and silver bullets; rules that must be exploited to defeat them. Each episodic release of Walkerman centers on a creature and the process of investigating it. Players will study the monster in order to ascertain its weaknesses, gather the necessary items, and then confront it in battle. Combat takes place on an isometric, pseudo-board game in which the player selects actions from a list of options. These battle sequences have multiple solutions, depending on the player's collected items and their knowledge of the monster. Players also steer the protagonist through his personal life in a similar fashion: deciding whom to trust, where to borrow money, etc which alters how the story progresses.

Prologue: The Thing in the Weald

Jorgen, a nineteen year old serf, has just embarked upon a peculiar career: monster hunting.

But before he can reach the city-state of Midgard, a chance encounter will send him spiraling headlong into a world beyond light and reason...

Act 1: Welcome to Midgard

Jorgen's arrival in Midgard is marked by suspicious characters, shady motives, and the all-pervading smell of a civiliization in decay. Both ostracized and incensed by his countrymen, he raises his standard in the world's loneliest revolution...
