Hayling by Rahll Hayling by Rahll
Update: I now have a blog for things regarding Hayling! Check it out here!

My new personal project: Hayling. I'm aiming for it to be a complex narrative and hope to tell it in a unique format, probably some sort of hybrid of a graphic novel/comic/art book, as well as straight up illustrations with clues and hints to the storyline and characters.

I don't want to reveal too much right away, because the progression is going to be fairly complex and involved with twists and reveals, but the general concept is this:

A group of complete strangers find themselves in a precarious position, trapped inside the walls of an enormous hi-tech facility, in some unknown, yet familiar, location. With strange marks on their bodies and no memory of how they got there, they work together and traverse the compound looking for an exit. But they soon begin to realize there's much more to their plight than they initially thought. Each passing moment presents not only more questions, but deadly challenges and startling discoveries of things that shouldn't even exist.

But as hours turn into days, the group becomes more desperate--their paranoia almost unmanageable. They struggle with the increasing feeling that whoever or whatever is orchestrating this rat maze has much bigger plans for them. As they continue forward, hanging onto their last shreds of hope, the unexplainable occurrences and bizarre happenings eventually lead them to one question that should give them all the answers they need. What is Hayling?

This is part one basically, of up to three parts. I understand the initial concept might sound a little cliched, but once you see some of the artwork I plan for it, you'll see that it's quite unique. Most of the really interesting and meaty stuff I can't reveal without destroying plot details, but that'll all come later!

I hope to get some conceptual pieces done for it soon to give you guys more of a visual cue for the story. And don't worry, it'll have plenty of sci-fi elements.

Anyway, I hope this whets your appetite somewhat. The project is still in the very early stages, but I'm writing up a storm for it and I'm really excited.

It really reminds me of the plot from Cube. But still a good idea.

Totally thinking about Saw when reading that description. Saw with a...science fiction twist? Could be interesting.
