Tale of Enki - Demo Soon!

2017-07-09 16:37:26 by TheEnkian

I'm a bit behind in my blog posts again, but fear not, I've got a big one coming up now! If you'd rather take a look at dozens of screenshots of the progress, you can find that at my EnkianGames twitter. I'll post a few of them here to help explain a lot of the new stuff we have in the game and talk a bit about the demo that I'd estimate is coming in August.

First important thing...we have enemies on the overworld! Yup, no random encounters in this RPG. Just walk into them and you'll end up in a battle. If you don't want to fight, just try and dodge them. Be warned, however, the bigger the party gets, the harder it is to avoid them.

Oh, we also have the actual battles in now too. I can't forget that minor tidbit. In all seriousness, this was one of our biggest things to tackle. We have a few things to tidy up like a couple of transparency issues here and there as well as aligning some of the text.

The battle system in Tale of Enki is turn-based, but it has a few twists. Do you see the green stamina points below Gargan's Hit Points? Each action requires stamina points of varying values, this means that you can make multiple moves per turn. Your stamina recharges by 2 points each turn, but you can use items to increase this or heal your stamina similar to Hit Points.

Using an unarmed attack or Lv1 weapon will require 1 stamina, a Lv2 weapon will require 2 stamina, etc. Using items requires 2 stamina as well. So for Gargan here, he could possibly use an item and make 3 attacks. Maybe he just wants to make 5 attacks? He can do that too.

Here you can see what it's like. If you chain up 6 attacks, they're listed as Pending up at the top of the screen. When you press the Execute button (star-like icon in the bottom centre) then all the moves will be performed. If you can your moves, then you get your stamina back.

We have a couple of things left on our checklist:

  • Inns
  • Shops
  • Quests
  • Clean-up and bug testing

After that we can release our demo and it'll be coming here to Newgrounds too! The demo will feature the first five main areas, over a dozen quests, the first boss to fight and the first three party members can be obtained. It'll give you a fair idea of what to expect in the full game, but there'll be plenty of good and unexpected things to come in that.

The full release will be available on services like Steam and itch.io for a fairly small price. That should be finished and ready to go by the end of the year so keep an eye out!
