Dark Matter is a science-fiction story that follows Shawn Guku as he escapes the invasion of planet Ritjes. On a mission to save his home he encounters many other characters along the way including Ketania Vahltae, Caden Nyral, and Ellair Hikarikaze. Since its creation the story has gone through its fair share of changes.

The original character sprites.

Dark Matter started out conceptualized as a game. Using sprites made by Supersonic88 and coded in RPG Maker by ShawnGuku. The soundtrack was created by "DJ Azoth" by converting a lot of other music into MIDI format. The story followed The Four Heroes: Shawn Guku, Azoth Sokima (removed), Ketania Vahltae, and "C. Ninja." and the quest to rid the planet of "space monsters." The game itself didn't go far beyond a working battle screen, custom character sprites, and a caterpillar-movement system for the over world. Soon the development team expanded, conflicts happened and eventually the game went on hiatus indefinitely.

The plot line and some names taken from the soundtrack stayed relevant with the story throughout its development.
