Flash RPG AS3 Game (FRAG) Engine will be DRM free and open source. The purchase price will be at $5.00 and will include a download copy of the FRAG Engine and the starter game, along with all of the source files.
The FRAG Engine lets users create their own RPG games using Flash/AIR. I have chosen Flash as it it one of the few platforms that is fully cross platform. FRAG Engine is open source, but the game content will not be. The game engine will allow people with limited AS3 coding ability to create role playing games similar to Final Fantasy, Zelda, Dragon Warrior, and Chrono Trigger.
The funds that are received will go to two parts, first part being the engine itself and the other the starter game that goes with it. The engine will be released first for Windows PC and Mac. Android and IOS will come later if funding is high enough. The funds will help pay for a website for the game, artists, a writer for dialog, and music.
The users are able to easily change game rules and graphics with out knowing how to program, using the build in editors. The engine includes A* path finding, Map editor, NPC editor, Item editor, Quest editor, Race/Class editor, Event editor, Spells and Abilities editor and Sound editor. Game data is saved locally in an SQLite database and users will be able to create games and share them with other FRAG Engine users.
The starter game will show most of the features in the engine. The game will be top down with active combat, and will also have side scrolling area's were they make sense such as puzzle's, some dungeons, etc... The game will be partially voiced with a dungeon master narration that can be turned on or off. The starter game will use a skill based system instead of class's and is set in a world setting of my own design.
Extra funding goals
$50,000 we will add full voice over, and more quests and areas for the starter game. We will also be giving a special extra gift for those that donate $1,000 or more.
$75,000 we will add more to the starter game, and try to add in multiplayer support. We will also make the Android and IOS versions.
