A powerful earthquake within a range of mountains near the border of two nations has unearthed an ancient mystery. A tower emerges from the destruction, seemingly untouched as the earth around it crumbled. The Academy, a powerful organization of the Northlands, wishes to know its secrets. A team has been selected to investigate this tower and unlock the secrets that lie within.

  • Two main characters to choose from! Either choose the spearman Gerald, or his sister Brenda, the paladin.
  • Explore the Ancient Tower's 30+ maze-like floors while fighting monsters and collecting treasure along the way.
  • Charge into battle or sneak past enemies that are visible on the map. Random enemies, not random encounters!
  • Engage in classic 2D turn based combat using powerful techniques and other abilities like alchemy.
  • Navigate past deadly traps such as ground spikes and falling floors.
  • Discover the secrets of the Tower with collectible items and secret areas to explore.
  • Help the expedition's camp flourish! Invest in modest shops so they grow from stalls, to tents to full buildings!
Playable Characters:

  • GeraldAn agile warrior that uses the spear as a weapon. He is a recently graduated student of the Academy that got assigned to this mission due to his exceptional performance. He uses ice skills as well as shouts to improve ally stats.
[*]Brenda
  • A sturdy swordswoman skilled with the sword and shield style of combat. She is a year older than her brother Gerald. During the year since her graduation she has gone on many missions and completed them beyond the Academy's expectations. She wields her faith as both a shield to heal and defend her allies as well as a weapon to smite evil. She uses water skills to heal enemies and strike her foes.
[*]Nina
  • A blacksmith from the nation of Midland. She wields a warhammer and specializes in fire attacks and roars to lower enemy stats. She is a member of the Midland expedition and is assigned to help with the Northland expedition.
[*]Reynard
  • A student of the Academy who specializes in History and Alchemy. He wields a whip as his weapon of choice while also using Alchemy to destroy his foes. He is assigned to this expedition due to his exceptional performance in exams and knowledge of history, both famous and obscure. He uses Alchemy to attack with a variety of elements.

That does look 8-bit,

And that's a good thing dawg.

All we need now is the 8bit font AND WE'RE GOOD TO GO.

I definitely want to use an 8-bit font, but I'm not sure how to slap one in there without requiring the player to install it before playing the game.

Make a folder called Fonts in the same place as Graphics/etc and plop it in there.

I slapped the font in the folder and referred to it via script. Not sure if that will require the player to install it manually or not, but I decided to go ahead and put it in the game anyway.

I love eight bit graphics! I'll play the demo once it's out. Are you sure about the font thing? This is from the help menu.

If there is a "Fonts" folder directly under the game folder, the font files in it can be used even if they are not installed on the system.

Thanks! There won't will be a demo, as for NaGaDeMo I plan on having the game done before July 1st the end of the first week of August. However, I will update the game if there are glaring flaws when it is completed.

Very nice look. It sort of captures the aura of 8-bit in a new gen style.

Good to see effort put into an art style that's older than vxa. Looks well done, really appears as if from the 8bit age!

I'm really digging the overall look of the game, especially the battle screen. Certainly looking forward to the demo.

Should have the demo ready by Sunday. Just finished a playtest with my friend playing. She said, "Nice. I'd keep playing if I didn't have work tomorrow." It may not cause sleep deprivation, but positive results so far.

Is it ok to repost stuff that i've posted to threads in the status feed?
If so, here's art of Shiloh, the main protagonist of the game i'm making:20220807_181702.jpg
They are meant to be ambiguous in gender, like Frisk from Undertale or Gogo from FFVI. I haven't decided what their age will be yet. Any ideas?
Please comment what you think about the art and design!
