Note: Since I am currently only developing one game, I’ll have my info and plan on the games I made here but you can find updates  on my official dev website here : L.Tanium Studio

Zephyro Tangere (Fantasy RPGame)

The protagonist

=) see she seems too gentle to hurt anybody :D even though that brown shoulder thing is actually an arm guard that she uses to block attacks and counter with the other. She's known to knock out peeps yo~

Full Description will be written soon. My mind is still going cray cray in terms of where I want the story to go and what not. This game will actually be based on a novel I was planning on writing. However, I felt like it would be fun to see it in game format :D.

For now I’ll go with this:

A Fantasy RPGame about a young woman who at first seems like a gentle and proper young lass…until she opens her mouth. She’s actually crude, gets into fist fights…a LOT, and hustles people in drinking games. She’s a happy-go-lucky type of gal. Until she’s left alone with her inner demons. Then she exudes anguish and anger. The story will revolve around a past that confused her and she wants to forget, a childhood friend who’s called The Abomination because of how he was conceived, and a journey where she would have to be careful of who she trusts because the ones who hunger for power knows who and why she’s a rarity for a human.

ohno

The World:
I’m planning to create different kinds of creatures that will co-exist with humans (or hate em and vice versa). The big kahoonas though are the “ancient dragons Eand the Sacradaeis (sacra-yis) or Sacradi Efor singular (sa-craday)which are cousins of the ancient dragons that evolutionarily branched off from them.

Battle System:
Co..co..combo Chaining!
I’m still playing around the battle system but I will have skill chains. So let’s say you want to do this beast move called…Super rice ball of doom. The only way you can pull it off though is by chaining it to the required skill which is called…um…awesome rice bowl. Now, whenever you guard or attack, you get spirit points, when you earn enough spirit points, after you use awesome rice bowl attack, you may now chain super rice ball of doom as a finisher, or if you have enough SP, you can chain that rice bowl attack with other skills and finish it off with that if you have enough time (yup time limit). I’m still trying to tweak and balance things as well as see how far I can go with this concept. I already tried it and I can chain up to 4 moves within my time limit :o. Let’s hope things work out!

Summoning:
Yeaahhh gna take it back old school~ always loved summoning shi in final fantasy and chrono cross. I’m still learning, but I’m planning to have you guys earn the summons rather than by level so you get some invested feelings with them~

Shapeshifting:
Woo! We gna get shifters up in this betch! 🙂 Some of your party members will be able to shapeshift and have a whole new set of skills. I’m actually testing this one out soon.

NPCs:

I’m trying to personalize the NPCs. I really don’t want them to seem like they’re just “fillers”. Like in other RPGames where they just put random NPCs but when you interact with them they don’t really say anything and all they do is just walk around. I also try to give them unique personalities. You’ll actually meet quite a few of them being the alter egos of real people who requested me to make them NPCs (even developers xD). I’m still open for requests because as I said, I feel like creating NPCs this way will give the world more…life. I think you guys understand what I’m trying to say haha. As you may see in the picture below, some pets are no exception.

Even certain pets have their own thing goin' on. Some, if they like what they see, might even give you presents~

Shouldn't have tried to loot the treasure chest. She was about to taize me bro!

Note: The sprites and tiles you see from above are stock (Although I customized the sprite to look like my character). I’m still trying to learn how to make my own but it’s not easy for me to be honest. Whenever I try, my drawing starts getting bigger and longer (giggidy) and no longer sprite like. So for the sake of progressing, I’ll be trying to learn and practice til I can create the sprite and tiles I like, but I’ll be using stocks for now and change it later.

 Races (so far)

Humans: Well, they’re pretty much like every other humans in video games hahah. Corruption and green included as well as perseverance and fortitude. There are some radicals though who are xenophobic as well as other radicals (like slave masters who think treating changelings and shapeshifters as animals is their right)

Ancient Dragons:
Elementally attuned there are different types of dragons. They can speak with the elemental spirits and creatures and are able to manipulate the element they are born with. They live for a long ass time and can keep a human form for a short amount of time (very taxing to them). They can be benevolent, and they can be malevolent, and many chose to be in the grey area. The older ones though have power that evolved, while others have the burden of keeping balance of certain things. Whenever a dragon dies, their soul either gets reborn (they get glimpse/dreams of their past life) or they reside things that are linked to their elements. Those who chose the latter can be summoned because they are now elemental spirits as well.

Sacradi ESacradaeis:
Cousin of the Ancient Dragons, they evolved to be more humanoid and formed societies and kingdoms. Unlike the Ancient Dragons who can be their respective elements, they can only manipulate the elements they are born with as well as have immunity. They practice the tradition of blood bonding which is the highest form of trust and also serves as a “waker Efor those who suffer Mudala which is when they transform into their “dark Eform. Still humanoid but they grow curling horns, their body is mostly covered in feather, the sclera black as tar, fangs shoot out, their hands turn into claws as well as their feet. At this stage they are closer to the dragons that predates the Ancient Dragons. Those dragons were “barbaric Erunning purely on basal instincts and very much enjoyed being the predator. To be in Mudala is a disgrace because their culture is based on controlling oneself and not letting the power they were born with rule their whole mind. There’s more about these people, but I kinda want you guys to find out ingame.

There will be more creatures, I’m still writing their background =) I’ll post more when I finish.

——————— Elt;br /> That’s it for now. I have absolutely no game developing background but I really love the RPGs back in the day. Or as my friend called it, “The Golden Age of RPGs Ewhich is when final fantasy, legend of legaia, lunar, chorno trigger, chorno cross, etc. were all poppin up. I terribly miss rpgs like those because I really feel like presently we’re lacking in them. I’m hoping I can bring it back to you guys. I’m probalby also going to be slower than other devs because I’m still learning and applying. I’m also doing the artwork on my own which can be time consuming xD. =) I’m excited!

Game Update 6/1/13

Finally got my tablet and digitally drew/painted my protagonist. Testing her ingame as you can see in the pic below. I already got couple people asking to be npcs 🙂 hahah so cute <3. I also already have the battle system set up and there will be chaining~ I’ll give more details later, I’m still trying to balance things out too.

It might be a subtle thing, but choosing which one to put into the game can make a difference in terms of the players connection with the character. The Left picture, I would be able to show her have hand gestures. Prettier if ever, but then there's all these details, while the right one will have the player really focus on the emotion that the face is portraying. Subtle things can make an impact =o

Game Update 5/28/13:

Just finished the opening scene of the first RPGame I’m creating. Now I have absolutely no game dev background so I’m learning as I go. At the moment I’m using stock sprites (but personalized with the sprite generator that’s built in the engine) as well as stock tiles. However, I’m learning how to create my own so the end product should be my own art. Since it’s still in development and early stage, things are very much subject to change. Especially if I learn some new tricks~

I’ll be taking a video of the opening scene. I very much welcome constructive criticism (so please refrain from being a trollolol). I honestly can’t wait til I draw and put them in my game, I just need to get a stylus since I do digital art.

🙂 I’m excited hahah.

 

So this is a sketch of my protagonist, after I do her digital coloring I’ll have her in the game soon. It’s quite hard without a stylus though and with my mouse D: She’s very much subject to change though especially her clothes. I’m still not sure how I want the world to be like so her clothes are in pending. And she ain’t gna be posted here nakie either ;P (sorry boys and gals)

Her name is Z short for Zephyria =) Can't wait til I finish digitally coloring her and have her mugshot in the game

Her name is Z short for Zephyria =) Can’t wait til I finish digitally coloring her and have her mugshot in the game. You may notice she looks like the protagonist on the screenshots of the game. I used the character generator of the engine to make her look as close as this sketch as possible. But yeah, when I finish coloring her, it’ll be my drawing on there instead =)

 

Hahaha ya'll know how I roll. Gta sneak my rice in there.

Hahaha ya’ll know how I roll. Gta sneak my rice in there. I censored the F word for the screenie but the video has the real word xD.
