Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

Thanks all. I had realized that I hadn't posted any updates after a while. But I do conitnue to work on it. The thing is, I find writing text quite harder to do than generating the graphics for the game. I mean, I'm no Richard Garriott, but hopefully the textual content that I'm producing will creat...

Re: New physical cartridge release: Cheese And Onion

What an impressive achievement. I think that there have been really great projects made for the VIC-20 in the past 3 years.

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

I hope you are still able to find the time to finish it. Then I will at least find the time to play it :) The time to finish it I probably cannot even hope for. I still continue to work on the game every day -- even if it means that I take 15 minutes to create some content or spend a couple of hour...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

I created a pirate ship graphic for those combat encounters that occur at sea.

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

Thank you for the kind comments. I recently started a new job, and hopefully I can still put in the time to complete the game--and I think I'm closer to finishing it than I think I actually am (in terms of actual content, it might be about 1/3 finished, but the game's engine is pretty close to being...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

I continue programming the city module, and I'm almost done this. After all the features for it have been programmed, I should be able to design the remaining cities (18 after the current one is finished) in fairly quick order as all I will need to do is create the data files that contain all the in...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

To further demonstrate the example, the player searches at the spot that he was directed to by the townspeople, and finds a piece of the tablet.

Of course pieces of the tablet will be obtained by other means throughout the game (like defeating bosses, solving dungeon puzzles, etc).

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

I decided to change the artifact from an amulet to a tablet -- makes more sense since the assembled image of 121 pieces (11*11 characters of the graphic view screen) is square shaped. realms5.jpg Like I said before, 121 might seem like a lot, but many of them can be found by gleaning the clues from ...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

Can't wait to meet Her Highness the Baroness Jakayla, and to satisfy her deepest desires - as a sidequest of course :mrgreen: I've been working on the portion of the game that keeps track of the progress that the player makes. Basically, the main quest involves assembling 121 pieces of a sacred tab...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

During your travels into the cities, you will meet the nobility and monarchs who govern them. They expect to be well paid when they give you the pleasure of their company! realms5.jpg realms6.jpg Each person you encounter during the game can be conversed with. While I wouldn't say the conversations ...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

Most cities will have guards and you can converse with them.

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

The way that converations work in the game is that you choose an option, and then the appropriate text appears. For example realms5.jpg There won't be any typing, so you just choose from this list of keywords to have conversations. In total, there's going to be close to 190 people that you can talk ...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

I don't think anybody has ever thought that an rpg of this calibur could be done on the vic. I hope this will inspire others to further push the vics potential. Thank you. I referred to a CRPG project done by a former Denial member earlier in this thread. It's supposed to be something like Pool of ...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

Very nice round icons down there, a real touch of art :) It's gonna be THE role playing game - I guess it will remain as a cornerstone for the years to come, not only in the VIC niche. The round icons at the bottom denote any ongoing spell effects while the party is traveling. Thanks all for the ni...

Re: Work in progress: REALMS OF QUEST V

I started to program the City Module. In the game, there will be 19 cities that you can explore. The following screenshots denote the player entering the famous metropolis known as "Bighy Woods" realms5.jpg realms6.jpg (the player has traveled to the pub to find out the latest gossip. Unfo...
