Primaeval Threat is an online gamebook I created for the My Little Game Dev marathon. The player assumes the role of a World Custodian, a protector of people from ancient and evil threats. The player picks three out of six special abilities uses them in a choose-your-adventure style game.

Because of its original as a game entered into the My Little Game Dev marathon, the game was first created as a My Little Pony fangame and only then did I port it to remove all pony references from it. The original variant of the game is a fangame.

The game was created at the age of 20, in 2013.

Story:

You are the warrioress Sunspear, one of the last of the World Custodians, an elite order of selfless monks devoted to the protection of the world from all threats. And what a tiring task that is!

Unbeknownst to many, the wolrd of Lonaelon is constantly under attack from evil forces. Last decade only, there was the Black Demon, the Army That Never Sleeps and, most horribly, the Zzzxyasquesdetl. Yet people at large are unaware of this because the World Custodians are always working, in secret, to save the innocent from their doom.

But the ranks of the Custodians are drawing thin as men are unwilling to sacrifice their normal lives for the tiresome, dangerous and unrewarding path of the Custodian. Your order is dying, but it is now that you would need most help. Because an evil greater than any you’ve battled before is about to return.

  • On page 73 of the normal version, I missed a reference to ponies that is still not removed. Can you find it?
