Participation to Ludum Dare #33 : You are the monster
Play as Alex and save your lover Arianne who got kidnapped by the evil emperor! He wants to marry her!
Hurry up, grab your sword and get her back!
Created for Ludum Dare #33, "Almost Heroic" seems to be a classic NES like J-RPG with a basic plot. Under its appearance, the game denounce naively some videogame usual but harsh behaviour.
Ludum Dare is a "Game Jam". The purpose is to spend 72 hours creating a game based on a theme suggested by the community. Ludum Dare events take place every April, August and December.
We decided to participate in the August 21st-24th session... just 1 hour before the announcement of the theme! :D
Thus, we created this unpretentious little game, together on skype/slack/github, deep into the very hot conditions of the game jam!
The theme of this session is "you are the monster", we were all agreed to do a more subtle game than "control a monster".
So we put our heads together for a small simple idea based on the clichés of the RPG, twisted into an original ending. ;)
All the graphics/sound/music is original and have been done during the jam session!
- Joke (@Jauke) - *Graphics, Sound effect, Mapping *
- xvw (@xvw) - Mapping, Programing, Writing
- Zangther (@BastienDuplessier) - Programing (Battle system)
- Neha - Musics <3
The few systems that we had the time to create (menu, quest journal, battle system, credits) have been programmed in event, with some RME event commands... and RPGMaker VXAce No - more! :)
We hope you will have fun!
