I’m developing a 2D rpg online game about pirates in Java, with the help of the LWJGL and Slick libraries (thanks Kevin Glass for the awesome tutorials). I’ve come a long way and here is video showing v0.4 of the game:
About the game:
The game I’m making takes inspiration from Zelda, the One Piece anime and the Pokémon-games.
The main concept is you will have boats that enables you to travel the seas and discover new islands. You will have different reputations with the different creature families, making your actions change your options in what quests are open to you. You will be able to create pirate crews with friends, having a pirate flag of your own.
There will be plenty of creatures in this game, and like in pokémon they will have their unique set of abilities and stat modifiers. All creatures can wear their own equipment, both players and monsters. Monsters can go from being aggro to give you quests depending on your reputation.
New intro added!
When creating a new character, a new intro is shown, which shows the background story of your character. So depending on which character you choose, it will be featured in the movie =D
New random bosses!
When a monster respawn there is a chance for it to become a “gloomy” with special powers depending on its color. In addition to that there is a small chance for it to become a colossus! These monsters are huuuge and have enormous power and mighty abilities which require whole crews to take them down. They also have a higher chance to drop rare loot.
New abilities with animations!
Added a new animation system so all abilities have their own animations which added a lot of fun to the gameplay.
All creatures now have butts!
Yes! Finally! Now you can see monster butts everywhere! This is not only a graphical improvement, but also a gameplay mechanic. Monster now have a sense of direction and can be sneaked when they are not looking, critical hits are dealt when backstabbing!
Introduced the first crafting elements in the game, which lets you collect recipes and ingredients which then can be made into stuff at different crafting stations, like this duck making larva soup at a bonfire.
New areas and monsters added!
The map has expanded to the north where a wicked witch has taken control of its inhabitants. Be careful when exploring these lands.
After a lot of feedback from players, I decided to remove the premium feature, so now emoticons and barber shop are free for all! If you want to support the game, you can always buy item skins.
Music released on spotify, itunes and plenty of other channels!
After many requests we have uploaded the music from the game on spotify, itunes and other channels so you can enjoy the music while not in the game.
The updater now shows latest changes and has a nice background.
