KingStone

This is my first devlog for a game I've had on the back-burner for a while. Essentially, it's an RPG with a focus on puzzles and exploration. It's currently grid based, but I've been experimenting with a few other systems. Your items degrade as you use them, however, when an enemy dies, it drops the weapon/armour that it was using, so you'll never be without something.

Story
Currently, there's no story, apart from, "DO STUFF SAVE WORLD!", but I assure you it will be a lot deeper than that!

Art
I know the art style has saturated deep into the indie community, but I'm terrible at art, and I thinks it's quirky. I may end up using 3d models eventually, but no guarantees.

Current Version
You can play the demo here:

Controls: (They're a bit convoluted, but I'm working on improving them.)
Arrow Keys - Move/Menu Selection
Z - Pick up/Use/Equip/Continue Text
X - Attack/Drop/Unequip
Enter - Open Menu/Close Menu

The art style works well, you don't have to be apologetic. Tongue Hopefully I'll get a chance to play this at some stage.

I played your demo, and I like the art style (it will look even better with animations). The menus are great, and your transition to the underground looks awesome. The one thing I didn't like is the way objects in the world rock back and forth as you move about. If you need help fixing that I would be glad to help. Other wise it looks nice, and you should keep up the good work.

Thanks for the replies guys!
As for the sprites facing the camera, I wasn't too fond of it either, and in the most recent version, they're all fixed at the same angle.

You can test an engine rewrite here: (Free Movement + Collisions Only)

Please disregard the abhorrent collisions between the character and edges of land.

Cool stuff, bro. Just one complaint:if you embrace the concept of grid, make it clearer, like drawing the grid or choosing some better angles.

I like the graphical style you've got going, it looks good. Nice work so far.
