Souls of Titans is a 2D action adventure currently being developed by me.It is similar to Dark Souls(inspired by it) and is quite hard.The game will only have boss fights and puzzle segments similar to Shadow of colossus.The game has both ranged and melee combat although swordfighting needs refining at the moment.I'm starting this devlog and will update it frequently.Hope to get some feedback..The engine is practically complete and supports saving,loading,continue and loading cutscenes from external files. Story
You are a warrior who's skilled in sword based and ranged combat.Somehow your love had died and you need to get back her soul in order to make her alive once again.So you make a deal with the demon who asks you to kill his enemies in the form of large imaginary freaks of nature and in return he would use his powers to bring your love back to life.So you begin the journey to slay the great beasts/demigods etc... Gameplay
Gameplay consists of both melee and ranged combat with epic boss fights and puzzle segments.There will be blocking/evading and stamina based combat similar to dark souls but in 2d.Also like shadow of the colossus there will be boss fights only with puzzle segments thrown in between. Development details
At the moment i'm the sole developer and handle the programming,art,music. Please note some of the graphics and animation are placeholders and not representative of the quality of the final game.
Here's a gameplay gif for the first boss fight still needs some fine tuning...
Here's the link to the gameplay video http://youtu.be/tHHsZkTYedI Here's the link to a very early build http://www.mediafire.com/download/42b2419bo73glji/souls_of_titans.rarPlease not that this is put together in a month or so,expect some bugs.Also contains placeholder art.Sometimes the controls are a bit unresposive.The build contains a mini boss level(the health of the boss is halved intentionally for testing purposes) followed by a puzzle segment.You will need adobe air to run this which is included in the required files folder of the installation folder.Controls are in the readme file inside the installtion folder.The game saves in a text file located in mydocuments if you're running windows 7.You can also load levels directly,however i haven't tested it properly so it might not work the way it should sometimes.
