We still haven’t come up with a proper title for it.
I have made some posts about the game before. Basically, I and a few of my IRC buddies are working on this game. We (at least used to) take 3 days to work on it, then pass it off and they’ll add to it, whether it’s story or gameplay wise. We’re starting to get close to the end so we’re taking longer turns now, but hopefully it’ll be done before summer. No guarantees, I don’t like to be rushed.
One issue I was seeing is that we kept being at a high level (at least in that game) before the game was over. So we would have all of the most powerful skills at least a few dungeons before it was time to end it. Also, we had 2 types of skills as a shared skillset, so there was not much diversity among the characters other than the commands which I believe aren’t all that effective (and were a bit buggy).
So I made a unique skillset for each character. You have to equip an orb to change the elemental spells that the character can use (Fire/Water/Earth/Air/Light/Dark), and one orb to set the level of the skillset for the character. These are gonna be fairly rare so you won’t always have all the characters on equal level skillsets, so you have to choose who would benefit most from the new skills you get.
The story involves letters being sent out to various people who would be capable enough to do a dangerous task. A shadowy council tries to find out who is responsible behind the mysterious deaths, and a girl asks 2 mercenaries to take her to the capital city as she has business there. They end up being involved in the up coming events.
There are various characters (I believe 8 if I’m not mistaken) which will join your group, you can switch them out later when you get more than 4. Also, you can collect frooogsssss.
This is a collaboration with Dajhail, Ocean, GreatOldOne, Skie, and Jihaus.
I hope that we can finish it soon. We will release it once it’s complete.
