Title: Kuest
Post by: Momeka on June 11, 2018, 05:46:12 AM
So there was this event thing on rpgmaker.net to make a dumb game in 11 hours. So decided to give it a try, ended up spending 10 hours and 43 minutes on it and had to cut some stuff that I had planned, but the end result is: Kuest

It's a dungeon crawler where you have to save some priests from a dragon. Collect loot and decide what you should carry with you and leave behind as you only have two slots. At the moment the game is pretty unbalanced, didn't really have time to playtest that much. The end boss is way too easy and the game is probably unbeatable if you go with an intelligence based build.

Thinking of putting in some extra hours and make an updated version that's a bit more balanced and add some stuff I had to cut. But until then, feedback would be appreciated.

Can't try it atm but love the style, also a neat idea with the weapons. Although it probably wouldv'e worked better in a more actiony setting.

Definitely following this thread.  Once I am done with MoSV, I am so giving this a shot.  It looks really fun.

Looks fantastic for the time spent!

What do you code in? Suddenly had an idea... If you made the framework for a randomised dungeon crawler like this, we could all take the code and add randomised content and make something that was very cool and different every time...

This is mondo coolio! How can you go into a game challenge to make a square game and come out with this gnarly schweet looking thing?

Cool, let me know what you think.

Thanks! It's just rpg maker 2003. I like that idea, but I would probably have to redo the game in something else to make it more feasible.

Thanks. Dunno, you sit down, make game. Sitting down is optional though, you can stand as well.

Looking great!
I loved all of your games so far, I'm sure this one won't be an exception. Downloading and playing tonight :D

i just wOkay, so as promised, I would try this game.  I just want you to know, it reminds me of the old days of computer games.  Meaning...  I LOVED IT!!!  If you decide to come up with a sequel, let me know because I am so in.  I love these retro style games.  The graphics, the sfx, everything.  They are not super complicated like my arch nemesis the toaster, and yet not simple to play.  This is the kind of stuff I knew as a child, and seeing them again brings me... feelings of some kind.  You have paws up from me.

It is not. Ok I didn't go FULL intelligence because you said it'd be unbeatable, but my intelligence was the highest and it was ok.
I should try a full intelligence one next.
Great game otherwise. It's pretty well balanced for a game made in such a short amount of time, I've seen much worse.
I should start doing game jams, maybe I'll actually finish a second game for good then  ;D

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

Jams are great (except when it's really stressful)! Good for testing quick throwaway ideas and see what sticks.


I'm working on an updated version. It won't really be a sequel but it will have some fixes and additional content. Been working a bit on the title screen today:
