Tropicalia: A Brazilian Game



SYNOPSIS
Hunt, fish, harvest and fight in this Retro RPG of hunther-gatherers.
The idea behind this project is to show the world the indigenous Brazilian aesthetics. (Medieval Europe is a bit overdone).
The game presents an interpretation about a Guarani folklore, before the times of colonization.


VERSION 1.2 Update (May 2020)



What's New

Now with 100% original artwork for the enemies, representing Brazilian Fauna and Folklore.
New Achievements and Encyclopedia Systems added.
Quality of Life options and UI improvements.



PLOT

The history follows a Guarani legends, that tells about Kerana, the most beautiful girl from the tribe. So beautiful, that Tau, a demigod, decided to kidnap her.

You play as Kaique, former love interest of Kerana that now is thinking of a way to rescue her.
(The plot is cliché, but I want to use it in my favour, and deliver a experience akin to NES Zelda 1).

In this Demo, this kidnaping is not expanded further, just presented. In the demo you play as Kaique, training so he can take a chance in defying a Demigod.


Game Mechanics

Minimalist RPG: You play as a single character, and control 4 parameters: Attack, Defense, Agility and Inteliggence;

Timed Hit Commands: Like in "Mario RPG" series, you need to press the button at the right tiem to add bonus to your attacks or defend from the enemies better.

Map Skills: You can pick fruits from trees, break rocks, lit torches, swim in rivers or in the ocean. You can also fish and cook everything you find out there. Think Breath of Fire or Wild Arms.

Souls-like: Rest at bonfires and spend your points to streghten your character and learn skills. If you die, you retain all your experience and items, but lose these skill points. You can retrieve them by reaching the point which oy died.

Fresh-looking Retro Aesthetics: RTP in here, only the battle animations. Everything else was redesigned. I took ripped sprites and put them all in a single and limited color pallete, and it all just clicked. Put this together with a inovative battle camera and you got an eye candy RPG.

Ooooh man, the animated-tiles are turned off by default and just now I realized this!! Thanks! (you can change this at configuration, but I can just imagine all the people that played without realizing this too :( )

I must admit this is not my cup of tea when it comes to the genre, but I need to applaud the graphics and the premise (adopting the non-mainstream (?) actual folklore for a game). Looks beautiful and feels fresh!

Too much effort for a curiosity. :popcorn:
I was just high-fiving myself for all I've learnt in the engine, and how far I've come, only to forget to remove the Immortal state from a semi-scripted battle. Now the enemy never dies and I feel so smart >.>
Playtest your stuff. Always playtest.
just spent FOREVER troubleshooting an issue with my keyboard... turns out the cord was just loose OTL
I count on someone one time, I let them promise something to me, and one week later it's complete silence as I'm completely let down. I hate everything.
