I'm happy to announce the side game I created while I was on my break! Patrons got a full report of some of the other work I did, and you'll be getting a schedule of releases in a few days, but for now I wanted to spotlight one of the things I've finished as proof that I haven't just been goofing off. =P
Ouroboros presents a bright, cheerful world in which something is horrifyingly wrong. The hero has a princess to save and a quest set before him, but there are unsettling signs that all this has happened before. As you play the game, you'll come to realize that the dungeons and monsters are meaningless distractions from the task of uncovering the truth.
Ouroboros is an action-adventure with RPG elements. As you can see in the above screenshot, you have the ability to jump, for example. You may also note that this one was made in MV; while I will keep my current projects in VX Ace, I did want to play around with the new version. Though it doesn't have a rich set of resources yet, it does have some fun possibilities:
I've included a variety of features in an effort to make the game feel different from the usual RPG. As much as I love the genre, I get a lot of it between The Last Sovereign and Noxian Nights. This side project was an effort to make a different flavor, and hopefully you guys will find it refreshing as well.
The combat system is grind-free: there aren't any levels at all, your strength comes primarily from your equipment and tactical choices. Though you can't see it in that screenshot, you have the ability to change your equipment at any time in combat. You can see MV's new side battle mode, which is a nice change of scenery.
Of course, the game has plenty of adult content as well. ^-^ Throughout the game you'll find six different sex scenes, and I may expand that number later.
I'll give a full schedule at the official end of the break month, but this game will be released the usual way: patrons will get to play it first, then I'll release it publicly. But while I'm doing that, I'll be diving back into TLS - while I was glad to take a break, I really found myself missing it. See you soon with more updates!
