About this project
We present our project !
We hope your suggestions and opinions about this game, but LOT of things to do!!. Remember still is too early until it is done.
A brand new videogame for the COMMODORE AMIGA computer: ECS 2Mb CHIP Ram & 68030 or emulator. Created in AMOS Professional and specifically in AMAL (Animation Language), running at 50fps.
Mixing traditional pixel art with modern technology.
Here is a new Jump&Run style game for Amiga 68k, and It will be done around October 2016!!!
Optional languages: English and Spanish.
And the story begins:
Rowan awakes in the dungeons stunned and disorientated..... but he begins to remember...
Along of this game you will see how our main character Rowan: a small elf child has to go through hundreds of obstacles and destroy powerful magicians and terribles creatures to rescue his family and friends, and save our world from the darkness. In addition to this, you will enjoy a classic game with pixel art style, for retro-lovers of AMIGA computers . An unique game that will take you back in time.
Also, for those who choose the appropiate reward, we will include a PC or MAC copy.... nobody will be left out without play this game !!!!.
One of the confrontation:
While we are playing this game our main character will have to find secret passages, keys, graveyards, weapons and discover places like bonus levels but, you only will enjoy them if you can get your target...... kill your enemies.
Who didn't want sometimes to be a villain, magician or a sinister creature ??? Then, with 'The Dream of Rowan' you could make it real if you choose the appropiate reward!!!. You could be a personalized villain and our graphics team will include you in our game. Also, your name will be included in the final credits with our team. Who wants to be a magician, a creature or maybe a zombie ??? Well, It's up to you!!!
Screenshots work in progress.
Our game has 10 levels and more than 40 sublevels levels where you will have to levitate, fly, swim and more.... It will be done in low resolution and 32 colors optmized palette. Differents weapons, enemies and bosses. Music is created with ProTracker in MOD format and the game will have Music and SFX simultaneously. We're doing our best in pushing Paula and Denise chips to their limits!!. We have been using a real Amiga 1200 with 68030/50mhz for developing this game, but remember It will requiere 2Mb of Chip Ram.
Video music realized by Dan Hernans
Creating an enemy:
We will create a new alternative ending for 'The Dream of Rowan'. With 10 Euros contributions we will do a raffle, and the winner will write a new end for our character and he will be in the credits with our crew as script assistant. Do you want to try?. Leave your imagination fly with this unique oportunity.
The Dream of Rowan is more than a videogame: We will tell you a story from the beginning to the end. With each game we will include a manual with the whole story narrated by our screenwriter, explaining the before and after of this game which you will never forget. And that's not all: We promise you it will have a sequel. This is the beginning of The world of Rowan!!.
Also, we think to create some bonus levels using techniques as Colour Cycle to simulate parallax scrolling with bobs.
Appreciating your support and confidence in our project, we will leave a small sample of the rewards that you will receive for your support.

I'm in charge of the programming and AMAL (Animation Language) and I.A. of the characters and mechanics of the game. I take care of the SFX. I coordinate and lead all my development team.
HERNÁN "Hache" BEROLDO:
Animated sprites and backgrounds for The Dream of Rowan. I am 2d and 3d artist and animator. For this game I have created the most of the graphics: made them in Photoshop at full color, indexed the palette to 32 colors and then make the necessary adjustments of the graphics using Personal Paint on Amiga 1200.
I am in charge of making graphics for this game using Deluxe Paint IV. First, I draw the contour lines and main lines and later I'll fill them using pixel-art technique until it is done.
I'm responsible for designing the overall structure of the code and the logical flow of procedures (in Amos). Also, coding the modules for the static and mobile platforms as well as the logic that includes the beginning and end of a game: Score management, time, lives and the warp around the screens. I have also coded the Hi-Score screen.
I'm the storywriter of the game. Also I will colaborate in the level design and suggesting ideas.
As you know, The Dream of Rowan is in the middle of production and this is why we are starting this campaing. We estimate that we need between 9 to 10 months to finish all our tasks and be sure our game is completed 100%.
