I've been working on this project for a few months,
it's an rpg that's all about secret areas, immersion, crazy combat, burning enemies, inflicting curses on them, stealing their life essence and adding to your own, throwing choking gas mixtures on them, turning them to stone, slowing them with a frost aura that you don't even know where it's coming from because you didn't bother to spend points into INT, more items, set items, rare items that are hard to find, secret areas, secret areas that you can only find by finding other secret areas.

Aquiring power through any means and owning everything, eternally. That is, if you survive.
 
For people who want more.

So 2 dudes, me and the programmer, we've been working on the core gameplay systems, inventory, character, looting, leveling up, a lot of stats like health mana energy attack speed, damage, armor, magic resistance, status effects like buffs and debuffs, AI, all the core RPG mechanics that will allow to create such an experience described above. 
We already have weapons that can stun, axes that can cleave, clubs and hammers that can stun, rats lurking around with diseases that can spread to other creatures, and to the player as well of course.
We'll be releasing videos and articles for each piece of gameplay every 2 week or so.

The most recent video is about the Health Mechanics, taking damage etc.:

Next we're working on polishing attacking with weapons, stats and item tool-tips. That should make everything a hell of a lot more interesting.

This reminds me of this dark fantasy a friend of mine use to write on deviantArt. It was awesome.

Cool. A story?

Thanks man. We're working on a new video about item tooltips. It will add another dimension to the whole gameplay.

His name was OzanaruSyra. He was a really great writer.

 

P.S ~ The graphics for your game are amazing. The gameplay itself reminds me of this 2D survival game. I can't remember the name of it at the moment but, you basically get generated into this world as a baby, and every minute is one year of your life. You need to survive by feeding yourself and forming a tribe. It was really interesting.

If you have anything planned out yet...

Thanks man really appreciate it! I think i know what game you're taking about. It's probably One Hour Life, some friends showed it to me a while back. Definitely have to check it out!

Hey there fellow wanderer :)

Hopefully finding a great sound designer and create some dark fantasy soundtrack, something atmospheric. That is the main idea. And adding sound effects to almost everything you do, like eating a carrot , or the sound a magic ring makes, stuff like that.

As well as adding more stuff to the world, plants, environments, characters. Things like earthquakes and winds, or drops of water dropping on the floor. There are a lot of ideas to explore.

New Devlog Video!
Stats, Tooltips, Item Rarities

 


Item Tooltips:

ShowingTooltips1506.gif

Added various Stats:
  • Armor -> Reduces incoming damage from attackers.
  • Damage -> Min Damage to Max Damage. When you attack it will be a random value in between.
  • Critical Chance -> Chance to inflict a critical hit on an attack.
  • Critical Damage -> Damage multiplier on a critical hit.
  • Movement Speed -> How fast you move around.
  • Attack Speed -> How fast you attack.
  • Health -> Hit zero and you die.
  • Mana -> For spells. (later)
  • Energy -> Unsure yet, it's ignored for now.
  • Health regen -> Health regeneration per second.
  • Mana regen -> Mana regeneration per second.
  • Energy regen -> Energy regeneration per second.
  • Magic Resistance -> Acts as armor but for incoming magic damage. (later)

 

The various items found in the world can influence any of these stats. All items now have tooltips with info about the stats they provide, their value and some of them have random descriptions.

Items are now organised into rarities. There are 7 tiers of rarities:
  • Common -> Regular items, the most common tier. Most items are Common.
  • Uncommon -> Next tier of item, less common than normal. Usually have 1-2 extra bonuses besides what the default common version would have.
  • Rare -> Getting rarer, and stronger.
  • Mythical -> Even rarer.
  • Set -> These items are in the uncommon - mythical range value, but completing the set may get stats as great as epics, if not greater, depending on the set.
  • Epic -> These are the best items in the game, except for legendaries. Very, very rare.
  • Legendary -> Extremely rare artefacts, that usually are lore related and may appear 1-2 of them in a whole game, maybe even none. Just forget about them.
You can also die now

But after scouring the area and finding some good armor and items, the tables have turned..

Looks really cool. I like the inventory/gearing system. Reminds me a bit of diablo.
