This game is about a female mage named Crystal who is asked by the guild master of the mages college to investigate a magical castle. The game is influenced by numerous older games like Megaman, Castlevania and even Zelda 2 the Adventures of Link. The game play is a side scrolling jump/shoot type game with elemental magic, secrete alternate paths, numerous monsters and bosses that will require more than just spamming the shoot button. Hidden items in the game will unlock new areas and powers.
The game is being developed in Game Maker Studio. A playable demo can be obtained from my website at fldgames.com Currently you can play the game for the Android and PC. It supports the standard USB PC gamepads. The game is tested out on a low end RCA Android tablet and Net10 LG Android smartphone and an old Dell Windows XP laptop from 10 years ago. All systems run the game fine so it's optimized for lower end systems. I've been working on this project since the summer of 2015.
Note- *The level featured in the game has more power-ups than the final will have. If it seems easy, don't worry. It's not an indication of how hard the game will be*
Risks and challenges
I have all the tools needed to make the game. I don't have a development team to pay off. I do all the programming, art work, animation, level design, play testing except for the music. That came from audioblocks where I have a subscription with the privilege to use their music in commercial projects. If I don't get funded on Kickstarter, it will just mean that it will take longer for me to make the game.
I won't mess around too much with rewards. I don't think backers will want stickers, coffee mugs, T-shirts....etc... I'll be too busy making the game.
Steam users! My game is up on the chopping block for Greenlight. I would really appreciate a vote there.
