Game Design Challenge: The Legend of the 3 Orbs

It seems some of you are running out of ideas for making new games, so I have a proposal: Let’s make a game design challenge! If this is successful, I might repeat such challenges.

Rules:

  1. The title of you game is “The Legend of the 3 Orbs”.
  2. Your get 3 weeks to finish your game, so the deadline is the 12th of March.
  3. You can keep your game secret until then, or make your development public so you can already receive early feedback.
  4. Starting from the 12th of March, everyone can play each others games and comment on them.
  5. There is no winner. The goal is to become better game designers by practicing your craft, getting feedback from others, and learning from what others did.

If you want to enter this competition, leave a reply at the forum post. I will update this post and list all entrants here:

Release 0.31: New technology and moving monsters/animals

The previous few months I have been porting RPG Playground from Flash to HTML5. It was necessary for 2 things:

  1. The Flash technology is going extinct
  2. Walking monsters were too slow in Flash, and I didn’t want to optimize a technology that I was going to replace anyway

So, the good news is that everything seems to be running OK, and I didn’t even have to optimize the moving monsters :). But to be honest, I’m not 100% sure that everything will still work as expected. So if you see any weird stuff, let me know!

Different = Separated

Not one of my regular games, I’ve kept this in for too long now though and I just needed to let people know. If you don’t like it, that’s fine. Please comment though and give me feedback and what you want to see added in my next game which, at this rate, will be ‘Runaway Bride’. Alright, thanks!

Hero for hire

Hero for hire

by Ponderingpinky

You play as a hero who’s sent into a town to save its people from the trolls at its border. Unfortunately, the Trolls can’t be stopped by normal weapons. Instead you have to go to the Elementals to gain magic, before you can do that, you have to either fight or befriend their guards. As you do so, you learn more about the town and the people who live there.

There are a lot of aspects of the game that can’t be or hasn’t been added yet, and it’s very much a work in progress. I’m looking for feedback of any kind!
