Update!!

Click here to test

so you can move around, fight some things, the ocean is still pretty empty. nothing to exciting, but its starting to take shape. next I need to add items and a town. Once I get that done. I should have the basic engine and then its just filling the world with stuff.

other stuff I have been thinking about for later:
1. players collect ores and crystals
2. these materials can be used to build items from plans. (some plans will be hidden)
3. I am thinking everything from sub upgrades to robots.

Seems a bit overly simple at the moment, but definitely looking forward to updates!!

lasttea999: what do you mean by overly simple? is it because I don't have much in the game so far or do you have some ideas on making it better now.

Kairo: thank you sir.

thanks allen. so I was thinking and two thing I wanted in the games were Deep Ones and Atlanteans. I figured you could fight them, but now I am thinking more and I was thinking about what if they were other races. you could visit their towns and then they would give you special bonuses. perhaps the Atlanteans can make amazing machinery for your sub. stuff like that.

Conspiring with deep ones?! I guess there could be some humour to it, talking with the inbred fishmen. Sort of like meeting the banjo-boy in deliverance. They should also take a hint from deliverance in that adventuring around the town/hub/cave of the deep ones should have a chance of encountering them in battle. That way they become the faction that you can't really trust, distinguishing them neatly from the (peaceful and fey?) atlanteans.

I like the movement engine, though I worry the sub is too big relative to the things you might feasibly want to display next to it. It takes up basically half the screenspace that isn't UI, so it won't easily be dwarfed by any of the larger denizens of the sea, giant squids etc.

Deep Ones could give you amazing bonuses and powers with amazing drawbacks / costs, based around mutations, organic technology, and arcane magics.

Atlanteans could simply be powerful magitech upgrades, that instead give you small boosts or smalelr abilities.

Ha ha, sorry for not seeing this for so long! For the most part, by overly simple I meant that you don't have much in the game so far. I want to see more content such as more actions that the player can take, a good inventory system, etc... But I'm sure stuff like that is on the way!

still working on this but going back to a more simplistic idea. I was worrying a lot about combat and all that and I wanted my initial goal to be exploring this huge underwater world, not fighting monsters. so I cut the combat out completely fr the time being. I am just focusing on the world building and exploration right now. the only thing I am afraid of is there is only so much I can add. like for example:

the first time you find Atlantis is going to be crazy. you discovered a lost city! On your second play through if you find Atlantis it wont be as exciting so how do I keep that excitement of discovery each game.
