I can't wait to see what this will be!TIK
Hey 8 Bit City,Can I interest you in a link exchange?I'm the webmaster of superluigibros.com - let me know on luke AT classic-mario dt net.Cheers
YES, it is a new game.And while it's not Skeletronic... in some ways it is the fulfillment of both Skeletronic and Ultimate RPG.Skeletronic wasn't designed to be a full RPG, and honestly many of the ideas got rolled into Star Quest.Ultimate RPG started as an Ultima clone, but I lost the main file and got a bit discouraged for a while.This game is called "Big Easy Sleazy" and it's a console-style RPG+Roguelike hybrid. It is set in a fake 1985 New Orleans. I was planning a big post, but I'll go ahead and just talk about it here. You pick a character/profession combo (currently there are 9 characters and 9 starting professions, with plans for even more.)Character classes are not always your typical fantasy fair...'80s Guy - Uses guns and sleaze to fight his way through the city. Mantis - Giant praying mantis that can not equip most of the awesome gear in the game, but gains insect powers like Acid Spit and Summon Swarm.Zard 3 - A Pro Wrestler who deals tremendous damage. Suplex and Backbreak your enemies.Warlock - Wield unholy demon magic.Doctor - Use nanomachines and drugs to heal your team. Clone dead teammates and bring them back to life.Necromancer - An undead skeleton who can, in turn, summon even more skeletons to fight his battles.-------------------------ItemsCurrently there are almost 200 unique items in the game, and they can be found in briefcases around the town.Most briefcases have a 50/50 chance of spawning in any given game -- requires risk vs reward calculations and preventing "perfect" runs.Collect Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures from Gachopons (capsule machines) in the style of Shenmue!----------------------------------Roguelike Elements-Permadeath if your party is wiped out-Randomized dungeons. But not totally random. You will face similar versions of maps, somewhat similar to Diablo 2. Some maps may only have a few versions, others have over 1024 possible configurations.-Huge city with at least 100 buildings you can actually enter.-BRIEFCASES are the Treasure Chests of Big Easy Sleazy, they can all drop any item in the game, with an equal chance of a dropping a lowly soda or the coveted Plate Armor.------------------Computers and ChemistryChemistry sets can be used to perform advance transmutations (i.e. turn a tooth into a skeleton or an eye into a swarm of frogs that will fight by your side). But you have to know chemistry first...Terminals can be used by a knowledgable hacker to do everything from -------------------ProfessionsExecutive - Start with all the cold, hard cash you need. But nothing else.Psycho - Start with a huge random selection of gear for a unique game.Chemist - Start with knowledge of advanced transmutations and a chemistry set in your apartment.Chef - Start with the Couteau and Apron, solid items that almost anyone can equip. Also begin with more food than you can eat and your very own soda machine.Entomologist - Begin the game with some Mantis and Ant eggs, which you can grow into deadly soldiers.Also play as a Knight, King, Hacker, Gangster...and more!--------------------7 days to liveYou only have 7 days to live in the "Big Easy." If you sleep in a bed to revive a character, you will lose a day. If all days are gone, you lose. If you clean up the city before then, you win.Some Chemistry transmutations may require an entire day.If you spend too much time on a computer you might waste a day playing an addicting video game!-------------------You can collect as many heros as you can, but only 4 can fight at once. If your battle party dies, it's game over.I can't wait to show off more, I'll try to get a video of the current build up sometime soon.
That sounds wicked awesome!
