Hi

I'm coding a rogue like game for Odyssey2. It's heavily based on Pedit 5, the first computer RPG ever, I recommend you to watch this video about the game, if you're not familiar :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjiIc94vJWQ

And this video if you're still intrigued about Plato Computer System :

Well, since the game is far from finished, I'll not post the rom for now.

The objective is walk inside the dungeon collecting treasure chests which will provide gold, magic scrolls and weapon upgrade.
Naturally the dungeon is full of monsters from different levels, and you should use the scrolls carefully to survive as long as possible.

Pedit 5 uses a very complex magic system, which I couldn't port to O2, but uses a very limited combat system, which I have expanded as "turns" just like any other turn based rpg.

My game the magic system is less complex, but the combat system is more elaborated than Pedit 5.

There are 3 types of magic scrolls :
Fireball (combat Spell) - Healing (restores part of HP) and Cast Light, which is a defensive spell.

During combat, you choose attack (sword or magic) and try to hit the enemy. After that the enemy try to hit you.

Because it is a Rogue-like RPG, the game is procedural, so the monsters and treasure chest positions are totally new every game.
The maze is fixed, but it is huge and is a PERFECTLY recreation of the original Pedit5 Dungeon.

This is what I have to say for now, I will post more updates as the game coding progresses.

One of the reasons I admire Ivan is the honesty of his work. No hunting, it goes straight to the point of what the Odyssey library needs. I had the privation to accompany "Pedit" from the first steps and an RPG, in my opinion, is something that we need a lot. Ivan is still a great programmer and an excellent artist of sprites (there are some new mosntros in this game that are of extreme good taste). Thanks for more this great game.

Thanks.

I never played Quest of the Rings, but the first time I heard about it, I thought was a full featured RPG game, what a disappointment after I see the "video game" part was just moving sprites on screen.

So I think my new project is what I envisioned from "Quest of the Rings" after all. Smiley

Intersting. We had a chance to play QFTR on our last encounter. We all agreed that Rings was the highlight of the meeting. Unfortunately it is a game that requires several participants so it is not always that you have the opportunity to play something like that. Cry
