DAY 28 // 94% // Improved dialog boxes // Support CHAINED ECHOES
94%! WE'RE SO CLOSE! 🤩
You've been absolutely incredible over the last few days. Lunark has received tremendous support and I am once again optimistic about the campaign's outcome! Keep spreading the word and we'll make it!
Improving the readability 🧐
The plan here is to scale the game twice (the game is low-res enough), which would allow me to display a 10 pixel font instead of the 5 pixel font. A font of 10 pixels would be perfect because it is the bare minimum for Japanese readability (it's only a test, it's not a guarantee that the game will be localized in Japanese, but if the opportunity to do so presents itself, I want to anticipate any technical problems).
Of course it's a first draft, but if the new font has this "blocky" look, the mix of resolutions may not be too shoking. Don't you think?
A classic JRPG adventure that combines a fantasy world full of magic with mechs and airships:
"Take up your sword, channel your magic or board your Mech. Chained Echoes is a 16-bit SNES style RPG set in a fantasy world where dragons are as common as piloted mechanical suits. Follow a group of heroes as they explore a land filled to the brim with charming characters, fantastic landscapes and vicious foes. Can you bring peace to a continent where war has been waged for generations and betrayal lurks around every corner?"
Here are the key features:
- 20-25 hours of play time
- Fast paced turn-based battles
- No random encounters; enemies can be seen running around
- Tons of items to be looted, stolen or crafted
- Complex skill and equipment system
- Customize your own airship
- Travel and fight by foot or in your Mech
- 16-bit SNES style graphics
- Music inspired by PSX RPGs
