Warna - The main character

Warna

Say hello.

Warna is 5 years old. The first four years of her life, she was just a normal girl. On her fifth birthday she started seeing demons. At first her parents just thought she was having bad dreams, but then she started to exhibit magical powers.

Could these things be linked?

Worried, her parents have brought her to The Magical Affliction Research Establishment (MARE)...

Medication

The doctors at MARE have a variety of medicines to help deal with your demonic affliction.

Take your pills, take the shots, take care.

Unique Blood Ink Weapon System

Medication is only one part of the demonic battle Warna must endure.

Taking colour pills will colour in nearby enemies. When killed these enemies will bleed ink.

Standing in blood ink will unlock one of 2 weapons depending on the colour. Killing coloured enemies inside your picture will grant access to your special weapon. Special weapons are harder to use than regular ones, but more powerful to make up for it.

Finally there is your super move which requires super meter. Charge your super meter by having injections and dashing through blood ink.

Now let's have a look at those weapons...

Weapons

Weapons, weapons, glorious weapons.

The doctors have been helping Warna learn how to use visualisations to defeat the demons. Using her love for drawing and colouring in combined with her medications, Warna has forged a formidable arsenal.

  • Chalk - The most basic of weapons. Use this when there is no blood ink beneath your feet.
  • Rapid Crayons - Like a machine gun from your pencil case. Fast, precise, deadly.
  • Shotgun Shrapnel - Useless crap at the bottom of your pencil case? Not so useless any more. Short range with a wide area.
  • Crayon Rockets - Special weapon. The reward for colouring in well. Unload two full boxes of dumb fire rockets with explosive results.
  • Pencil Scratch - Charge up enough and you can unleash your inner berserker with this super move.

Plans for more weapons include a sniper rifle, flame thrower, grenade launcher, chainsaw and more. Feel free to make suggestions for your favourite weapons.
