I’ve begun work on my new game A Warm Nights Slaughter. In it, you play a wizard/ bard/ guard/ thief.
To play the demo, go here:
As of right now, it’s not much, but a few key things I wanted to touch upon:
Would you guys be interested in being a Guard who secretly works for the Thieves Guild (or vice- versa)
I’m planning on having a part where you can hire some recruits, 2 you have to have accompany you, and you can pick 2 more (e.g. if a [CLASS] you’ll get Bob and Jeff always, can pick 2 between Geoff, Jim, Jimbob and [Specific Class helper guy])… so teams of 5, including you.
Also, I’m expecting to finish this short- medium (like maybe 200-300K (including code) word) game in a year or so, probably before, since I’m a student and all that jazz.
Current Progress: 0.8%
Startup: Set background, main skills, etc. [10% of total game]
The 10% is split into Noble background [DONE], Wizard background [DONE], Orphanage/ Weird abandoned child place [DONE] and the Family Home background, at 2% each (other 2% will be general startup stuff [DONE])
You’ll either fight a wizard, defend family home, defend land (&fight political rival) or fight magical bandits and/or guards, depending on background.
Can buy some cool items, get some cool items for free, and hire mercenaries (who will die, even the main 2 guys will hopefully not be game-immortal, and you can die even if all your
meat shields esteemed companions are alive.
Also, what really is young adult fiction? I mean… I’m a young adult, and this is fiction, and I think it’d be appealing to young adults but I’m not too sure. Oh and on that topic there’ll be some romance but nothing too much because 1) The character in the game is roughly 16 throughout, (due to number 2) and 2) I’m also 16.
This’ll be great though. I hope.
I’ll add on shizzle everyday, and update the link everyday. every other day (when I eventually finish startup!)
I’ve just done a lil’ calculation and it shows the game will be roughly 1.5 million words.
Uh. I prolly can’t do that, and isn’t super accurate either, but does mean I’ll have to be code efficient (and so make tons of errors haha)
