formerly known as 'oldskool 3D maze game' [NOW VISTA OK]

  • remember games like Eye of the Beholder, Wizardry and (original) Bard's Tale? this engine reproduces an environment like that.
  • fairly easy to expand on (and tidy up) * not recommended for absolute beginner to develop!
  • still being developed
  • combat is more detailed (critical hits, fumbles, knockbacks etc)
  • has detailed & upgradeable magic items smile.gif
  • skills, quests, etc (something the original games lacked)
you can make a group of adventurers, explore the first dungeon area and local forests, fight monsters, maybe even get a magic item from a treasure chest, there are some quests added now, and other game content (a trading post, training hall, tavern, inn, so you can maintain a group of adventurers) .. the game is being developed with more quests etc
  • make groups of up to 6 party members
  • diverse items and equipment (and being expanded)
  • 4 basic char classes, with advanced classes on the way
  • 6 char races, having different sizes (and being expanded)
  • fully working inventory system (and being expanded)
  • some magic spells, skills already developed
  • magic item generation is already supported
future features:
  • character personality traits, background histories and background quests
  • an 'X-Com type' bring-stuff-back-to-the-HQ-and-research-it system
  • storyline and objective (i got one, just needs to be implemented)
