I Am Overburdened - a silly roguelike [Steam & itch.io]

Recommended Posts

I’m Tamás Karsai (Spidi) a solo game developer forming "Magic Item Tech". I used to grind for magic items day and night, now I’m building games using technology fueled by them :P . I would like to present my third completed solo game project from start to finish :) .

I Am Overburdened is a silly roguelike with a fun twist to the tried and true classical formula. The player takes the role of an artifact hunter, who has a surprisingly large carrying capacity, embarking on a quest to search through dungeon after dungeon for mystical artifacts and answers, in a world where magic has long been forgotten…

What is this 20 slots, 100+ unique artifacts RPG nonsense?
Simple, your “hero” does not get more powerful magically by beating some orcs to death and he is not a wizard either. In the world of I Am Overburdened the art of magic wielding was lost, but legendary artifacts and relics retained their power. If you equip these you become stronger, sometimes immeasurably, and you may even learn reactive skills and otherworldly abilities, but no sane person wears two pants…

The game will be sold primarily through Steam and itch.io for Windows PC initially.

It will cost 4.99$ (may vary based on store & region).

You can already wishlist the game on Steam to get an e-mail on release day:

Or you can follow my developer profile on itch.io to get a notification:

My website, the Steam store-page and the Steam Community Hub already has a lot more information about the features of the game and the release itself.

I'm also doing a little marketing "sprint" thingy up until the release day. I'm calling it the "Wishlist Release Calendar". I'm going to release an artifact from the game every day with its "fluff" text posting the new version of the following image here:

This is going to be a painful post for me, but I got to do it :( ...

TLDR:
Yesterday I hoped to release on the 23rd, but I had to postpone the release of I Am Overburdened by a little more than a week, to the 2nd of November :( !

The longer version (details/reasons) can be read on my blog:

Targeting the 2nd of November will give me plenty of time to fix remaining issues and prepare for a better launch without an absurd work-schedule. I hope you understand my decision and forgive me for my messed up planning. I thought about continuing the release calendar at least. I prepared the first extra one and if you are interested I will keep posting it ;) .

Wishlist Release Calendar nr. 15:

      My Name is Austin Blaschke,
      Dear Everyone, I'm starting a big project and I need a team to help me with it. I'm mainly doing this for a full pitch purpose but also to make something valuable for the community. You will not be paid but if any of the projects makes a profit, it will be split equally among all members after we pitch the game. I'm looking for people who enjoy what they are doing and are willing to improve their skills and learn from their mistakes. I need anyone from music/sound production to game designers to code writers to visual designers and the whole yard. You do not need to be a professional and also no age limits are set but if possible i would like skilled investors to make this amazing. I'm not going to be doing this a 100% of the time because of educational purposes (College). I will be on every day, for around 2/3 hours but that doesn't mean that the whole operation is stopped. The development can still continue even without my presence.
      Im looking for a group of people that work well together and can work with anyone on this project looking for anyone.

      I include the source code from what I am playing with. It's an exercise from Frank Luna's DirectX 12 book about rendering a skull from a text file. I get a stack overflow error and the program quits. I don't know where I went wrong it's messy programming on the parts I added but maybe one of you masterminds can tell me where I went wrong.

      F.OB: Forward Operating Base is a military themed base building and resource management game.

      I am currently about 6 weeks into development. still implementing core game mechanics. The game is playable in a basic sense right now but there are no objectives or missions or anything motivating really lol. 

      I have been inspired by games such as prison architect and rimworld. both in visual style and general gameplay ideas. Here is a quick 2 minute video i put together that hopefully communicates the general feel of the game and what gameplay is like. Any feedback or criticism is welcome
       
       
      I have been keeping a development diary on my youtube channel and i hope to have more developments on this project very soon.

      Hi guys, so I have about 200 files isolated in their own folder [physics code] in my Visual Studio project that I never touch. They might as well be a separate library, I just keep em as source files in case I need to look at them or step through them, but I will never actually edit them, so there's no need to ever build them.
      However, when I need to rebuild the entire solution because I changed the other files, all of these 200 files get rebuilt too and it takes a really long time.
      If I click on their properties -> exclude from build, then rebuild, it's no good because then all the previous built objects get deleted automatically, so the build will fail.
      So how do I make the built versions of the 200+ files in the physics directory stay where they are so I never have to rebuild them, but
      do a normal rebuild for everything else? Any easy answers to this? The simpler the better, as I am a noob at Visual Studio settings. Thanks.
