It's been a while since I made a game solo and I initially wasn't planing to make dev log for it, but here I am presenting you this little game I have been working on.
Fairy Striker is a sidescrolling "Slash em up". so instead of primarily shooting things, you slash at them with a sword and a throwable axe sub weapon. Content will be fairly slim ( 3 stages + 1 extra stage ), so that I can get this done in a semi time effective manner.
The game features a flipping mechanic, so that you can change your facing from left to right and vice versa as well as some slight RPG elements, like status effect and an RPG inspired smartbomb system.
There will be 2 primary characters in this game/story:α
Alpha is the playable character in this game, and the last hope for "Fairytopia".Ω
Omega in contrast is the antagonistic "sister" of "Alpha-tan" seeking to destroy Fairytopia.
In terms of content, a lot of work needs to be done on the graphical assets still, but I've ventured quite far on the audio side already.
That you can conveniently listen to by clicking the 3 elemental Jellos
In terms of the coding side of this, I am currently working with placeholder graphics to get all player character features in, while still allowing them to be tweakable ingame for the fancy buffs and debuffs. ( Also there is some rudimentary Jello behavior in there already )
Better images will follow as soon as I'm not on this netbook anymore. Hopefully this dev log will motivate me to work on the code more frequently.
