Ban-Na, or builder, is a visual novel game where you take on the role of a young builder. The Khan has tasked you with designing a pardis garden fit for the late general who was a personal friend of his.
Created for the Historically Accurate Game Jam, Ban-Na has its roots in fact. The art and music is inspired by classical Persian and Iranian history, and the story brings you inside a recreation of a construction of a pardis garden. However, Ban-na itself is a work of fiction, a story of life and forbidden love as it would have been.
Though the characters are fictional, the themes and experiences are rooted in recorded history, and remain relevant today. Our aim is to promote the knowledge of LGBTQ+ existance throughout history.
Here is the script that I wrote for the visual novel.
