An NES-style action adventure RPG, based on titles such as Kid Icarus, Legacy of the Wizard and Legend of Zelda. A PS/Xbox or any Controller with 4 buttons or more is recommended.
This game stars Ajax, a cave-dwelling fellow who lives with his overbearing parents, but with the help of supernatural forces, he gets the chance to seek out his own destiny.
Near his home town to the East is the city of Duncaster, which is facing attacks from the fae people. There's also a mysterious plague which has put the town in quarantine, so no one is allowed in or out. Soldiers are sent by the emperor on skirmishes they have no chance of winning, and the princess has been kidnapped. Besides that, there's also rumors of an ancient lich lord rising again, which seers explain is the reason for the abundance of monsters.
There will be an open world, multiple endings, different approaches to situations and consequences based on your actions. If possible in the future, each play might have different rooms/traps/enemies or even treasures to add re-playability.
You kill monsters, earn fame, which unlocks special quests and upgrades to classes. You will be able to choose good or evil approaches, join the humans, the fae or no one. Maybe you'll wreak havoc everywhere you go?
There are 6 classes/jobs to choose from, and they all have different weapons and skills:
Bard - Smooth talker, haggles down shop prices and can bluff their way through situations. Their weapon is the rapier.
Wizard - Ability to read scrolls, runes, and uses spinning orb magic to attack. They also with a powerful magic ring of thunder.
Bishop - Ability to speak with spirits and exorcise them. Uses a holy cross as a weapon, which can also heal wounds.
Thief - Ability to see hidden, or trapped treasures. Their weapons are the throwing knives.
Fighter - Has prestige. Rulers and noblemen will hire them as a mercenary. Their weapon is the sword.
Druid - Ability to speak with plants and animals. Their weapon is the greatsword.
WASD / Arrow Keys - Move
Z / I - Menu
X / J - Sub-Weapon
C / K - Main Weapon
V / L - Confirm/Run
This game is obviously a work in progress, so it could be wonky, sprites might be missing, etc. Help me out with feedback/critique if it's about difficulty, or not being able to find where to go. Maybe even ideas you'd like to see? So far you can go as far as Duncaster, but no further.
