Hey all, this is a very unfinished mini project of mine (currently about 35000 words) I’ve had on my computer for ages and add a scene to it every now and again for fun. It was inspired by Bunnies! which I thought was a very cool little resources managing game; but I’ve always wanted one of those where you’re a dragon… So I kind of built one. I did this for fun because I wanted to play it and learn how to code something like this, but wondering if there is any interest in having it finished up as a game at some point to see if it’s worth posting on the forums when it’s more complete. (It may take me a little while to get this one done as it’s a side project.)
So yep, this one has major randomization influences occuring with regards to events happening (like weather, thieves etc,) so warning in advance for those who don’t like that. It also has story segments that you can either select at the start, or allow to be completely randomised events. (There’s only 4 so far so it’s not very random right now, but if there’s interest, I’ll write more as I get time.)
As it’s very unfinished, you can play up to the ending sequence but the judgement event is not yet written. There’s also some unselectable choices and ones which have “TEXT HERE” instead of proper text. Sorry about that, it’s just I’ve been randomly adding to it in no particular order. If you see any choices with something along the lines of “Not written” or “Not selectable”, please don’t pick them if you don’t want the game to potentially crash. It needs a really good edit, but if you would like to point out grammar and spelling issues, please do!
The knight battles are also not finished properly. It’ll probably make the game harder once it’s done. I think it’s a bit too easy at the moment? Maybe? There’s a ranking system based on how much gold you manage to get hold of (in the ending which isn’t there yet) so this will also add to the difficulty as you’ll need to balance treasure aquisition against all the other factors to keep you and your lair safe.
Anyway, any thoughts welcome
(Edit: Feel free to suggest ideas for side events like the goblins or the wizard that are already in there. Definitely can’t promise anything so please don’t be offended if all suggestions don’t make it into the game, but if I like an idea enough and I can work out how to make it into a short scene I might add it.)
