    THE FIRST EPISODE HAS BEEN REVAMPED WITH MORE AWESOMENESS! NOW ON GAMEJOLT AND ITCH



    Story/Plot
    A lowly slime barely survives an encounter with an adventurer and limps(?) his way home. He's mad about his lot in life as just an exp grab for some dimwitted noob with a dream. He's tired of the oppression from those wandering brutes and their swords and spells.

    He decides to fight back and create a safe place for slimes of all kinds to ooze about their lives. This is his story...

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Setting
    You know the basic trope. A mob decides to be a hero, after some kind of miraculous event. But THIS time, it's a slime determined to make a safe space for him and his. The world is just like any RPG world with heroes, demon kings, dragons, etc and our gooey little friend has to overcome them all. He'll need some help to avoid being a smear on some adventurer's boot. Can he recruit a strong enough team to accomplish his almost impossible goal?

    SLIMES come in many different forms, based on environment/element:

    Snots: Poison
    Nectars: Healing
    Magmas: Fire
    Clays: Earth
    Cubes: Ice
    Mosses: Plant
    Custards: Lightning
    Gels: Water
    Meringues: Air
    Slags: Metal

    Game Mechanics/Features

    Synchronicity/Synergy affects most aspects of the this game. As you gather Party members, growing closer to them helps unlock many great benefits:


    -Synergy Charge: When two or more party members have a high enough affinity, they can unleash a powerful burst that gives a boost to skills and attacks.
    [​IMG]

    -Synchro Skills (element): party members can gain skills that are of another member's element.

    -Fusions: All slimes can fuse together and with other creatures.


    Other Features

    -Equippable Talents: Sometimes enemies will give you skills that you can equip your Party with.
    [​IMG]

    -Expanding Map: The more members you recruit, the bigger your kingdom grows.
    [​IMG]

    -Uniquely quirky characters that you can recruit in many different ways
    [​IMG]
    -A unique Web Comic-like style!

    [​IMG]

    -Side-scrolling Maps: Because THEY'RE COOL!
    [​IMG]

    -Sideview Battle System: Best fit for a game like this, IMHO...
    [​IMG]



    CHARACTERS
    These are seen throughout the First Episode.

    Thanks to some feedback I think I've crushed all the MAJOR bugs for this PROTOTYPE/ALPHA Build. Please feel free to give critique/thoguhts on this as it will help improve later builds going forward. You can get the demo either ITCH or GAMEJOLT!

    THANKS AGAIN

    Just a quick glimpse of the Synergy Charge system in battle. When Party Members have a high enough affinity, they can unleash a burst of energy that powers up their attacks/skills (See Original Post).

    Hey Gang! I'm back and still continuing the good work!

    I'm looking to upgrade the text windows for this game. I'm using Galv's Message Styles and I have two options:

    1.
    [​IMG]
    Msg with the Face in it...

    2.
    [​IMG]
    Msg and then I make the character express their feeling.

    Any ideas are welcomed! Thanks and have a good one!

    After taking some time to gather up the right plugins and revamping some things, I can Happily Say the this First Episode is COMPLETE! Going forward, these changes will be the STANDARD for all subsequent Episodes. Now I can concentrate on story, character, world building, etc. :LZSsmile::LZScheeze::LZSsmile::LZScheeze:

    [​IMG] First, I changed the size of the party member character sheets. Now, granted they are a little close, but not as they don't look like they're absorbing each other when you have followers on.

    Second, I added Gifts and a party switch event system. I wanted to add some cool abilities that would be a benefit to the party and add something cool to the game. I was looking for a party switch script call and couldn't really get help with it. I did find something that I was able to use HERE!
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Third, I got two plugins to help with the dialogue and look of the game. I'm using Galv's Message Styles and one from a fellow dev on Discord.
    [​IMG]

    So that's the gist of this post. I'll be working towards the next chapter soonish!
