The design of the board. It looks small and seems like an easy game to win until you realize what the rules are.
THE WARRIORS OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE!
All pixel art done in the 8 bit NES style of graphics. This game was an excuse to take a stab at
stuff this basic.
THE NOBLE ASSIST SQUAD
Two of the three available assist cards...
And the third secret assist card. She's so powerful that there's only ONE of her in the whole deck.
VS. THE BOSSES!!!
DERP THE DRAGON
THE WYVERN (WHAT DERP WISHES HE WAS)
THE NECROMANCER, AKA THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL IN THIS GAME.
This is the first ACTUAL game I've ever produced (not to mention the most ambitious one)
as the last one was something I did on a TI-83 calculator back in high school.
There were a lot of challenges involved in the making of it. It had to be simple enough to where it was straightforward to understand and also easy enough to be able to produce.
Needless to say some ideas I had ended up on the cutting room floor, though ultimately I believe it was for the better. Originally, the actual board was going to have the scenery where all the enemies were located drawn out and interconnected with each other, but there were two reasons why I left it the way it is now. One, the enemy graphics would need to have totally transparent backgrounds and the time just wasn't there for that. Two, some things are just best left to the imagination. I kept the majority of the art and design in black and white as well
for the purpose of cost cutting, and as an excuse to use that brush in My Paint again.
In a small sense, the game is still a work in progress. Here is a list of patches done and pending to the game. Current revision is ver. 1.3. Any changes made at this point will be from watching how
Ver. 1 initial launch
Ver. 1.1 More chance cards added. Wyvern gained a tail in art.
Ver. 1.2 Gwen, Maximo, and Rebecca avatars updated to be more accurate. One set of assist cards laminated. Update to the rules, you can move on your first day IF you make over $400. The first $300 goes toward the battle to beat Derp. What's remaining can be used to move forward. Ex. You make $500. $300 goes to beating Derp, so the remaining $200 allows you to move two spaces. This is the ONLY battle this will be allowed on since Derp is supposed to be a pushover. Also, if a Chance card
disables your movement for a day you will have a big red X marked over your avatar and will not be removed until that next day is over. After that, you can move on the next business day.
Ver. 1.3 A Quest Leaderboard is now up. You will be able to use a dry erase marker on its laminated surface. I do apologize for its delay as this should've been a day one thing.
Ver 2.0 pending: Support for Portraits and Body Art is being considered. If enough are interested I'll do it for those who actually wish to play it. For Portraits this may require a few changes to the enemies for it to work.
