Skylark, RPG platformer for Caanoo
« en: Mayo 05, 2011, 08:00:02 am »
Time to reveal my second Caanoo game, which currently is in early development stages.
It's called Skylark and is basically a RPG platformer with lots of monsters and lots of items and stats advancement.



Story (spoilers left out)

A man by the name Borealis, finds a young boy out in the woods, alone in the night, forsaken to his own dreary fate. The man takes the child in and cares for him. The boy seems to have an odd relation to birds, which all around befriends him where ever he goes. Hence, he names the boy Skylark. Twenty years later, Borealis gets brutally murdered by an unknown assailant. Once Skylark discovers the murderer's identity, he traces the assailant for days to an old castle, far out into the ancient woods. Skylark ventures deep into the castle, to hunt down his father's murderer. Not knowing what secrets and dangers that awaits him, he will soon discover his higher purpose, and that he is the only one who can seal the dark force that is stirring in the heart of the old castle.

Gameplay

Your goal is to advance further into the castle, through each of the rooms, but you can always backtrack to where you have previously been. Skylark has your normal RPG stats and level progression system, and as you kill monsters you will gain experience and level up. Your stats determine your attack and defense rate. You can also find items through out the game like swords, shields and armors that you can equip to enhance your basic stats. There are several magic Tomes hidden in the castle that you will find, and these Tomes are used as skills/magic. But to use a Tome it costs Action Points and another resource called Eyes, which are basically human eyes that are used as vessels for magic energy to cast Tome spells. These eyes were infused with magic by an ancient order of black mages, that practised their rituals inside the castle, in order to contain more energy for their rituals and spells. The eyes came from human sacrifices to the Dark One.

Ultimately, you must find the 3 magic Lenses, hidden in the castle, that can be used to restore the Dark One's powers or seal them in forever.

Inventory and items

You can carry 30 items in your inventory, but will be able to sell items that you don't need. All items in the game are dynamically generated within 6 categories (swords, shields, armors, helmets, consumable, accessories). So, you might find an item in one game run that you didn't find in a previous, due to the unique way they are generated.

By the looks of the pic, it's Castlevania inspired, yes :) Though it has no connection what so ever, more than being a platform game.

Yes, I have reduced the speed about 3 times since the version you tested :) It was too fast.

Thank you. Castlevania is my favorite platformer, so I can't deny it has inspired me to make this game  :)

Believe whatever you want, if that makes you happy. Nevertheless all sprites and backgrounds are original, and made by me. Heck, I spent a straight week i Photoshop only animating the player sprite. Backgrounds are rendered in 3dStudioMAX..

The sprites are yours, ok, but believe me, it's very very similar at castlevania series for GBA, like a clone, and maybe you got some problems or comparations, i hope there is no problem, but your game is very interesting and the fans of castlevania love it  ;)

I've never even played any GBA Castlevania titles. I will check this game out that he's talking about.
My greatest inspiration source is Castlevania "Symphony of the Night", which is the only Castlevania game I've played.
And this is no clone, it's an entire different game and has no relation to Castlevania whatsoever. Any resemblance is purely coincidence, because as I said, "Symphony of the night" is the only Castlevania I've throughly played.

I don't say it is a clone, i said the people can interprete that, is not the same :)
Another personal opinion, you have anuncied the game to soon, a game with these features needs many time to complete.

Perhaps. I just wanted to make sure people knew about the game before it was finished, unlike Arora Rift.
