Temple of the Abyssal Winds

04 March 2015 - 07:51 AM

Temple of the Abyssal Winds is now available, for iPad and Windows!

 

 

"Twenty years ago, the demoness Urgoroth rose to power from the depths of the Temple of the Abyssal Winds. She was defeated, but your parents were lost in the conflict. Your aunt and uncle have raised you in the small village of Tomm's Crossing, where life has been mostly peaceful. Until now…"

 

So begins the classic-style role-playing game Temple of the Abyssal Winds. Features:

  • Epic fantasy adventure.
  • Single player, controlling a band of adventurers.
  • Real-time pauseable combat for realism and control.
  • A combination of open-ended exploration and strong story driven plot.
  • Tactically challenging encounters featuring many different strategies.
  • Deep, complex role-playing system, inspired by popular paper-and-pencil role playing games.
  • Dozens of quests, enemies, and monsters to tackle.
  • Build the character you want to - dozens of skills and powers, and hundreds of spells and items.

Try the first chapter for free, which includes a full adventure and conclusion. If you like what you see, chapter 2 is available for purchase, with the following chapters 3 through 6 to come in 2015. Merry Prankster Games invites you into the world of Temple of the Abyssal Winds!

Problem with Guest comments on Dev Journal

10 November 2014 - 10:50 AM

Hi GameDev,
 
I'm trying to use my dev journal as a place that beta testers can leave comments about my game. Entry here:
 

http://www.gamedev.net/blog/717/entry-2260298-temple-of-the-abyssal-winds-beta-feedback-thread/

I've got the settings for this journal as:
 
"Allow guests to post comments in your Journal?" - yes
"Disable comments?" - no
"Approve comments posted on your journal?" - Moderate Guest Comments Only

 

However, it seems like guests cannot leave comments (or at least it is not obvious how). When I sign out and go to the journal entry, there is no way to comment.

 

Anything I should change? Or can anything be done about this?

 

Also, when people do try to make an account to leave a comment, it is not very obvious that you can make an account without paying. I know you guys have expenses, but it is preventing people from leaving helpful comments for me.

 

Thanks,

Geoff

 


Temple of the Abyssal Winds: Beta Testers Needed

27 October 2014 - 11:16 AM

Temple of the Abyssal Winds is ready to go for Windows, and I just need a few intrepid beta-testers to go through and find the last few bugs. Help out, and enjoy a classic-style RPG at the same time!

 

 

To find out more about TotAW, check out the website: http://www.prankster.com/totaw/index.htm Chapters 1 and 2 are ready for beta-testing, for Windows and iPad, and I'm working on the rest.

 

I'll give more instructions once I have my testers lined up, but mainly, I'm looking for testers to simply play the game, and let me know of any issues. For beta testers, if you provide helpful feedback or bug reports, I will list you in the game credits, and give free access to chapters 2-6 of the game.

 

If you are interested in testing, the best way to let me know is to drop an email at mailto:totaw@prankster.com

 

Thanks for your support,

Geoff Dunbar, Merry Prankster Games
