Stealth JRPG

While I was stuck in the Underworld of real life (IRL Work), I’ve had time to reflect on small but cumulative issues I’ve collected from the 1st version of the private demo, alongside some concerns regarding the core of the gameplay itself (and the demo’s showcase). I realized that this Read more…

The Small Stats and Timeline

These last few changes are being done to make sure better gameplay in battle thanks to the new timeline, and from now on, the main thing I’ll be working on are mission design: level design, story, enemy encounters, balancing… The main game’s content, essentially.

New Timeline & Speed System

The big change is the new Timeline system: it’s now a fully fledged timeline. Each character’s speed stat now is more important now than ever, as it can grant an ally or foe an action before their foes!

Equip Flowers!

Wow, it’s been a while! Three months! (And more for those checking the devlog through forums like Haxeflixel and TIGsource, I forgot to update them!) Real life intervenes in very harsh ways, but hopefully I’ll be able to resume work on the game in a steady fashion, most notably on the content aspect.

One mechanic I really wanted to spice up before fully focusing on content was the flower equipment system. It seemed relatively basic, it gave some stat boosts and a technique. It was a bit too basic, and would have required a lot of work (and balancing) to make a lot of flowers each have unique stats or techniques.

What I’ve implemented is a system of flower synergies. Persephone is a goddess, and despite having her title stolen, she can still empower her allies through the use of flowers, each character being able to equip up to three flowers at once.

Memo, the God of Memory, appears!

Meet Memo! God of Memory! The only person in the Underworld who’s willing to give Persephone a hand… for a price.

Memo, the god of Memory!

He’s the one who initially helped out Persephone before her three knights came to the rescue. Memo is a freelancer and is in for the Pleuros, as at the time that Persephone was being chased, she was carrying a lot of Pleuros. He proposed his services of replaying previous experiences for a different outcome from contract date, and Persephone spent all the pleuros she carried with her… thinking it was time travel. Since her title was already stolen by the time of the contract, she couldn’t play back before the title was stolen. She did feel scammed…
