Introduction

Legends tell of an ancient king's hidden tomb and the grand riches that lay entombed.  Seven adventurers (and one mouse) team up and set off to find this tomb of legend.  Join our adventurers and travel to the tomb!

Well, you guys have been asking for it, so here it is!  A game based off of my Tomb of the Lost Art story!  This game will contain:

  • Puzzles!  Because everyone loves puzzles~
  • An expanded story!
  • Lovable characters!
  • Humor!
  • Adventure!
  • Romance!  Okay, probably not a lot of romance, but a little bit!
I'm sure some of you out there are thinking, "but hiddenone, we read (and loved!) your Tomb of the Lost Art story already!  Why would we want to play a game when we know how it'll end?"  Simple: in this game, you have the chance of changing the ending.  Will you be able to learn more about the island's mysteries?  Can you find the secrets in the tomb?  Will you be able to save Snowball?  

Characters

Gabrielle


The leader of our merry band, a cleric who brought our adventurers together.

Sol &
Ray


Brothers who heard about the adventure in their local tavern.

Olaf


A mercenary hired by Gabrielle.  His two loves in life are booze and blades.

Bud


A young elf with a potent power of plants (now if only he could control it...).  He's never seen without his little friend, Snowball the mouse.

Tina


Motherly instincts caused this centaur to join the expedition.

Kel


A fighter who agreed to join the adventure after meeting Sol and Ray on the road.
Screenshots 



The characters' actually speak instead of just flailing about to get their point across!

I'm glad you guys are excited for the game!  Of course, saving Snowball isn't going to be easy!

I figured it's about time for an update!  I've been working on the story and trying to get everything to work properly.  So far I've got up to meeting the jester roughed out, and I'm hoping to get it polished enough to release a demo by next week.

I've been trying to decide what style our adventurers should be shown in for their busts: the super simple drawing style from the challenge, a more manga-inspired style, or maybe something in the middle.  What are your guys' thoughts on it?

for admit the manga graphics is so much see so custom style but  a little more detailled could really work Hide-chan 

you simple style like that with more shading and details will make a new fresh style who perfectly fit with the humor you make in it ;3!

I remember seeing this in the Tomb of Lost art!

I love the idea of turing in the story you told there into a game.

Yes Nio, I'm planning on using Luna to make everything pretty.  ;)

Long time, no update (whoops).  I took a break from working on this to deal with other stuff.  So I came back to what I'd done and playtested, and realized it wasn't fun to play (too much walking from point A to point B, and too many extra useless features).  I decided to scrap what I'd done and restart, this time focusing on the fun and less on following the ToLA story exactly.  I'm working on this slowly, but it'll be finished eventually.  :)

I also switched the style the game's going to be in, so check out the first post for a sneak peek of how it looks (currently the maps aren't done, but I'm working on functionality first).

Yay can't wait! Changed to DS graphics, in my opinion DS looks MUCH better for your style of game :)

Paladin:  I'm glad you're excited, but remember to breathe.  ;)

Monkeysnow55:  I agree.  Once I saw the DS style, I knew it would be perfect for this game.

KingDanner:  I'm glad you like the sprites, since I made them!  :)   And the plan is to use a slightly updated ToLA art style.

Evan Moonkid:  Didn't you know?  Ursam works part-time as a pub musician.  :p
