The Gladiator: Road to the Colosseum
It is the year 68BC, a time of strife, politics and Roman dominance. As a child, these concepts may seem alien to you, but when you are torn out of your comfortable life, you will be forced to come of age and fight for your freedom. Will you rise to the occasion? Or will you fade into oblivion?
Do try out the first two chapters of the game here:
Thank you for all the suggestions, feedback and encouragement so far! Do comment and let me know what you liked and where I can improve (typos, grammar, gameplay etc). Thank you!
A week has passed, and I've managed to squeeze in a few new features! Brand new chapter, I would love it if you guys could play it through and let me know what works and what doesn't for you!
Check it out here:
Current word Count (with code):
Shiny new stuff:
1. Random best friend generator as suggested by @Josetrayamar: Your best friend will be different each playthrough. Meaning your best friend is unique to you, and other players will have different looking bestfriends. How cool is that?
2. Save function. I implemented the CJW save plugin, which is pretty easy to work with. Currently, it works even though it's displayed as an error (this is cause of the perma-death choice). If anyone knows how to work around the issue, please let me know!
3. Chapter 2 is out! Do comment on the fight scene and let me know if the system is good. I envision future fights to be based off a similar format vis-a-vis a pokemon style turn based combat. This will give every fight a unique and dynamic feel.
What I will be working on:
1. Chapter 3 and 4
2. Inventory System
First chapter was posted.
Idea pitch regarding random character generation, overall game concept and storyline.
