Overview:
In between my bigger project I've been having a bit of fun making a basic Zelda-like dungeon crawler that has a few simple combat mechanics for now. I want to try and keep it fairly simple so it would be a nice project that's achievable to finish. I'm also looking to get some feedback early on and make things as tight as possible before adding any custom graphics or other features. I'm posting a small prototype below, feel free to give it a go. I'd appreciate your thoughts:kaojoy:

As i said this is a super early playable demo and I'm a little nervous posting something like this! but I would like to post more on these forums while my other project is a bit more secret. This is just a bit of fun and it would be nice to get more involved with the community and see something develop in this thread.

_________________________
Game Mechanics:
Basic on map ABS system.

Combat Actions:
Basic attack that consumes stamina. Player cannot attack if stamina gets too low.
Attack.gif
Using the shield will block any incoming attacks. But stamina will recover slowing while blocking.
If hit while blocking stamina will reduce. If stamina reaches 0 the player will stop blocking and take damage.
ShieldBlock.gif
While shielding the player can 'dodge' backwards in the direction they are facing to avoid attacks.
Action consumes stamina and cannot be used if stamina is too low.
Can only be used if the player is not moving.

Weapons:
- The idea is that the player could find new weapons which have better stats such as more damage or they consume less stamina when used.

example:
Dagger - Consumes little stamina but has low damage.
Hammer - Consumes a lot of stamina but has high damage.
Purchasable Upgrades:
Some kind of basic shop to spend gold on upgrades.

Max Health Points - Increases max health.
Strength - Increases damage dealt.
Stamina - Increase stamina bar so more actions can be used.
Treasure:
The player can find items to help them progress through the dungeon such as health potions, Gold, Poison potions, Map etc.
Controls:
Keyboard only!
W,A,S,D
- Movement
Enter - Attack
Shift (Hold) - Shield
Shift (Hold) + '@' Key - Dodge
Esc - Menu

Been thinking about different visual styles for this. Still not sold but I'm liking the more looser look but it probably means more work :p

Wow, that bottom visual set (Idea Two) is really beautiful. I can see the appeal of the older more gameboy color scheme, but I was immediately drawn into the second set of screenshots.

Golly this game is calming to look at. Even if that bat in the first .gif is doing work on that poor boy.

Doing RPG Maker News for 24th October 2021

I'm not sure how to do this so I'll just ask here, Wheres a good place to post your game (for free) once its done?
I don't know what I'm doing :D
So got my hearing tested to see if it was the cause of my mishearing what people say. Test showed no problems but talked with the doctor about anxiety and ADHD causing hearing issues and she agreed and also added that some people hear things differently. With my anxiety cause I am in fight or flight I pay attention to all the sounds in the area so body knows when react. Can't pay attention to one source.
