Kings of Ember v0.6 Released

DrEthan stopped by Ye Olde Blah to let everyone know there’s a new update to Kings of Ember – and it’s a big one!

Here’s a quick look at what’s been added:

Yaaaaaa, I released another update a few days ago and I decided to post a summary here.

  • Added main menu
  • Added saving and loading
  • added money
  • added item drops
  • added shop

The complete list of changes, as well as the new demo, can be found on the Kings of Ember GameJolt page.

“Amreen: Instrument of Revolution” Demo

You might remember news of Project Nekoforce back in December of last year. Now it has a name: “Amreen: Instrument of Revolution”. Even better, there’s a playable prototype available!

The project’s author, Doh042, shared some details over at Shining Force Central:

For those who haven’t read about it before, it’s a 2D strategy RPG paying homage mostly to Camelot’s Shining Force series. It has a very JRPG look to it, and this is the fruit of probably 400-500 man hours for a 2-man crew for the last 3 months. The build features 1 combat map and 1 city map. There are 5 very different characters in the player’s group, fighting against 3 different enemy units. You have access to 4 spells and 3 different items.

We plan to keep updating the prototype a little (mostly bug fixes based on people’s feedback, if we get any!), and there’s a few things we have left on a wishlist that may or may not make the cut for future release/builds. (Art update, actually having villagers/npcs in the city, etc.)

After that dust settles, we’ll start planning the Vertical Slice, which should feature a few hours of gameplay (roughly 4-5 battles, 3 exploration areas, 16 or so player characters with all their spells and a dozen enemy types).

Be sure to give the demo a try and leave some feedback!

Kings of Ember 0.5.1 released

DrEthan dropped by Ye Olde Blah to spread a little extra cheer for the holidays – a new demo of Kings of Ember!

Hello everyone, happy holidays! I just updated my game on GameJolt and I decided to post a summary here! So here is a list of changes (this is usually called a change list)

  • Added attack animation for Enu Knight casting magic.
  • Redid the inventory menu so that it is now a scroll rect and you can see the stats of the items.
  • Added death animations for the Goblin and the Brick Man.
  • Removed the black outline for the villager eyes and nose.
  • Made the villager’s pupils be in the center of the eye instead of them being cross-eyed.
  • Implemented walls, art on the walls, windows on the walls, door, and a countertop.
