Hey,

So for the past month or so I've been working on a little game that I've been wanting to make for a long time. The goal is to make an action game that can make you feel both pathetically weak and overwhelmingly strong, depending on what passive items you get.

As of now I have movement and a single sword implemented in my combat system. There are some issues with animations being a little glitchy for this weapon, but those will be ironed out.

Here's some gifs showing how we progressed:


Early player concepts -


Dynamic lighting test -


An example of the normal maps our sprites use -


The first slash animation that all weapons of type 'MediumSword' will have in some form -


A super smooth run animation used for weapons of type 'MediumSword' -


Our first enemy, a gigantic mushroom -


Gigantic mushroom attack -


A level design concept -


A concept of the first floor of the dungeon (A fungal cave) -

What will you make?

Yup. You can take a look at our twitter if you want to see the process behind it. Our artist also has a Twitter account with other stuff on it.

The goal is to make an action game that can make you feel both pathetically weak and overwhelmingly strong, depending on what passive items you get. I want it to be a dungeon crawler with multiple floors, each with different enemies and a boss.

As of now I have movement and a single sword implemented in my combat system. There are some issues with animations being a little glitchy for this weapon, but those will be ironed out.

Looks great so far. I'm definitely eager to see more.  I'm curious about what this is going to mean: "The goal is to make an action game that can make you feel both pathetically weak and overwhelmingly strong, depending on what passive items you get."

Good luck with the game.  Coffee

I'm sure we'll both find out how the player will feel pathetically weak and overwhelmingly strong at times Tongue.

Thank you! Good luck with Lazarus as well, it's looking good so far!

So we've been busy for the past month! Ironing out some bugs, but we've finally added another feature: A dash mechanic! This'll be used to traverse the large maps quickly and to also add another dimension to combat.

Not sure how to insert this here, so I'll leave a link!
