Would you guys like me more if I gave you an early, early demo build?
http://rapidshare.com/files/436339212/KoE.rar

WASD to move
CTRL to attack
Hold CTRL if you're Gil (Yellow one) to do a charge attack
J to switch characters
Shift to execute skills (Only Ellie's (Pink one) is anywhere near halfway implemented)

When you're Ellie, a Parry can be executed by blocking with perfect timing.

I haven't put in any menus or anything yet, so you'll have to use Alt + F4 to quit

I'll have to check that out next time I'm booted into Windows.

The music sounds great! I especially like Windswept Terrain.

The art style looks really good to me too. That boss meter is totally boss.

I think the quickslots would be less intrusive if they were just arranged in a horizontal row, since it would take up less vertical space.

I've finished the main theme for the game if anyone would like to give it a listen:





Also, thanks for the compliments on the music, Helmeted!

Throughout the story, the main characters gain more abilities. The ninja, Van, can eventually take on two forms that allow him to access different abilities: a Shadow and a Wind form.

 Rather. Those are the only two he has. He achieves these by obtaining a Wind Scroll and a Shadow Scroll. The Wind form [REDACTED]. His Shadow form allows him to [REDACTED"

 Gil gets [REDACTED].

 Ellie gets [REDACTED]

Ah, nice. Glad to see it isn't cliche in that way!... also, those feel very much like Zelda. In a good way.

Sneezing Fit

I love non-traditional status effects.

Good news! You can inflict it on enemies, as well as any NPC in the entirety of the game.

Good. I hate it when RPGs give me status affliction spells that never fucking work on anything when you need it.

I totally agree! In a lot of RPG's, status effect spells are usually useless after the first third of the game, since most enemies and bosses are immune to them.

 Currently, all of this fruitless programming is getting a bit irritating. Would any of the programmers here be interested in giving me a hand? The game is being built using Unity 3 and Javascript.

I have zero experience with Unity, but a lot of free time at the moment.  Let me take a look at the engine, and I'll get back to you.

In the process of redoing facial structure and eyes. Next step: Repainting the textures.

Hey McMutton. I'm just curious why this is on hold. Also I'm using C# and Unity myself. Let me know if you have any programming questions. I can usualy help or know where you can find help.

 Oh hey, I missed the reply. The hold is nothing big, I just thought I'd go for a less ambitious project so I could actually get a foothold of some sort.

 And thank'eh for the offer; I'll definitely hit you up if I run into super annoying issues.

And we're back! Said 'less ambitious' project is turning out to be more ambitious than I had originally thought, so I thought I may as well start working on this again as well.

I'm pretty much restarting, since most of the old code is just uber-crappy due to my not-skill at the time, but now my not-skill has become marginally-less-not-skill! Along with the restart comes a new art style that's less anime and more abstract, as seen here:



Flat shades, sharp shading, gradients, skintone sclerae, static textures, and stuff like that.

And then, this time, I'm starting with the stealth segments, since that's the first thing you do in the game anyway. So look forward to that!

Daily Ha, I've Tricked You! It IS Daily Work Log!
-Finished up the basics of:
  -Visibility
  -Movement Volume
-Added bare-bones GUI elements for them

There are three speeds you can move at: Creeping, Walking, and Running:
-Creeping is the quietest, as you make no noise at all. It's the slowest, though.
-Walking is what you'd expect; Decent speed at a moderate volume.
-Running is also what you'd expect: High speed, but it's the loudest.

You can also hug walls and sidle along them. This reduces your visibility and makes you completely silent, but it's about as slow as Creeping.

The material of the flooring you're walking on also effects the noise you make. Some are louder than others.

As you can see, I've drawn a lot of inspiration from Thief for this stuff. 'Cause that was my first taste of game development, and it was awesome.



The GUI thus far:


The sphere in the center is a light that's brightness is linked to your visibility: The more visible you are, the brighter it is (And vice-versa).

The rings are emitted in time with your steps, and their size is linked to the volume of said steps. The louder you are, the larger they get.

See it in action here!
