Castle of the Stolen Stars is a rogue-lite homage to classic games like Castle of the Winds.

DOWNLOAD CASTLE OF THE STOLEN STARS

  • Original Soundtrack and Pixel Art Graphics
  • Randomized events on static maps (each time you set out you will find you encounter different challenges and treasures)
  • No game over!
  • Turn-based Combat
  • Trait-based challenges and narrative options
  • An atmospheric story
  • 1-2 hours playtime (unfortunately for me, since the judging is only on the first hour ;))

"Once the world was balanced, then one by one the stars began to disappear.
Now all that remains is the castle beneath the pale moon.
And we who seek, the stolen stars."

Callum, the Orphan Blade

Yvellin, the Robin Knight

Irinna, the Lamp Witch

All other scripts, graphics, sound/music by me.

  • Apparently I forgot how to spell lantern...
  • there are a few places in the castle where you can trigger events for the forest.
Development:
  • Balancing - Irinna needs buffed slightly, the start of the game is toughest with her. Skills in general need some tweaking to give more use for different cases.
  • GUI/tileset to give world a bit more life.
  • More uses for Command/Adventure/Lore.
  • More Character interactions/narrative moments
  • More unique events throughout

I plan on developing this further after the jam concludes, so any feedback/suggestions are welcome!

Cool, Benny (the Judge) streamed my game on twitch, check it out and his other videos too!

Also just click the ghost above, not sure why it isn't showing correctly...

edit: StudioBlue (Teal) streamed it too during the second round, check out her (unlucky) experience:

Who's a fan of firearms? The 5 on the bottom row (not including the green laser ones) I made pretty recently. I plan for most of these to be in my project.

RMMV - Skip script errors:

For game developer testing purposes.
You know, I really get to farm likes since I post all of @Avery and @hiddenone 's blog tutorials on the forums...
Back from a very long hiatus with a new project woo
This is my battler placeholder image trying out art styles too I want to fake a backview battle system
I think I will want portraits and battle sprites to be 2D and stick to pixel art for overworld not 100%sure but pretty sure its easier to make pixel art for overworld sprites, events and maps and stuff.
