Last night I had strange insomniac hallucinations I was playing Chrono Trigger once more and I came across an enemy called Chief Rabite the Rabbi.
Compilation of the characters so far. There’s still some more left.
Americana Dawn was originally called ‘The Long Goodbye,’ a silly test project based on a television show I had never watched. Since it was a test project, I cared little for the basis or origin. After several crises in my personal life, I devoted more time into this project. As I continued my work, realizing my vision, and understanding the source material more, the two became incompatible. Around late 2011, the game became Americana Dawn and the lore and cast were done to suit my own vision. Though I kept one name as a tribute to how it started, even though the person itself became someone else.
It began on a venture deep into the eastern face of the Sierra Nevadas. I never knew such beautiful places could exist, particularly in the United States of America. Since I arrived to Southern California, I have seen nothing but drab concrete structures, but after my first mountaineering adventure, I was inspired to explore the wilderness further.
While exploring the deserts near the Mexican-American border, drove off the road into a distant system of canyon that were illuminated by the sunset. Layers upon layers of sediment with distinctive colors showcased its’ life story. I marveled how grand these geological formations were, and pondered if they had a “soul,” what would they be like? What story would they tell me? And how would they feel about the centuries and millenias?
Another thing that bothered me was the lack of United Statian mythology. Since it is a new civilization. No Homeric Epic, Journey to the West, Legend of Gilgamesh. I thought to combine the naturalistic feeling of mythos with well-documented history.
