knight: I actually like crafting in RPGs. I think it's a cool feeling when you have e.g. gathered enough dragon scales to finally craft your new super cool dragon scale armor. But I also think that enemies should drop armor and weapons, too, so you're not dependent on crafting.

Xion: Yeah I was also thinking about uniquely looking monsters wearing random armor, weapons and with different proportions etc. Your pixel art is awesome, btw!

Christian: Cool, that's a big motivation for me. Smiley

poe: I programmed it with Visual C++ and used OpenGL for the graphics and DirectSound for the audio. The player and enemy characters are also hard-coded in C++. Wink

At the moment I'm optimizing the engine. I made some screenshots during testing today:





More screenshots are in my blog.

Very neat! The look is really easy on the eyes for something so early.

Maybe you could orient this towards more of an exploration game than MC, I could really see a hack n slash played like this.

Okay I see your point there. Well anyways good luck! I can't wait to play it.

Maybe for crafting, make every item procedurally generated. When you craft two things together, you would get random stats from both of them.

So like a fire axe with 16 attack and a earth sword with 10 attack and 15 speed you could get a fire axe with 15 speed and 10 attack.

poe: Thanks for the offer but in this early development phase I prefer working on the project on my own and keep at my blog and the Facebook page as websites for Cube World. But it's cool that you're so interested in it.  Hand Thumbs Up Right Your crafting idea sounds interesting. I also like the idea of pimping existing equipment. Wink

RichMakeGame!: Not directly but I'm quite satisfied with the current size regarding performance and memory consumption. I don't think I can increase the resolution much further.

rtpg: Yeah, I also think the hack n slash direction would be nice.

Here's what I did today: I made a voxel editor to create detailed 3D sprites. I already created a new test head for the hero character and a new sword. The rest of the body still needs to be pimped. Here are some screens:

Wow! This keeps getting better and better!

Edit: The only issue i can see from the screenshots is that all the colours kind of blend together, making it hard to tell the difference between materials. But other than that, as i've said, it's great!

Thanks for the feedback. Here's just a small update of what I'm working on atm: I added speech bubbles for NPCs and can now start implementing quests.

HOLY EYEGASM!

Are quests going to be procedurally generated?

Looks nice, and I love how they explode when they die. :D  Combat seems a little glitchy though.

looks good, my only gripe is the clouds look a bit solid. Perhaps a different way of shading them would help to make the look separate from the world.

poe: Yes, quests will be procedurally generated.

Conker: When it's finished and good enough it will probably cost money, but not much cause it's indie. Wink

Xardov: Yes, combat is still very experimental.

Cunnah: Good idea, I'll think about a better shading.  Hand Thumbs Up Right
