Hey guys, I’ve uploaded a new demo, ready to play! (Version Alpha 1; wait for updates if you’d like to play a more complete game. Comes with a small dungeon and a miniboss creature.)
It’s Lumina, a fantasy RPG adventure! Sound cliche? It takes place in the Amihailu in Dreamland Universe, so it has all of the bizarre NPCs and strangely compartmentalized worlds you’ve come to expect!
Battles are kind of tough to start, but the object of developing this game, for me, is to make a portion of the battles a small strategic puzzle, with the small numbers ensuring quick but deadly fights. Use your best strategies (focus fire? Flashbangs?) to conquer new enemies and make use of items that you can buy or find in the environment to help you during or after a battle. And lastly, specials are a godsend and you’ll quickly find yourself on the losing end of a gun barrel if you aren’t sparing with them! Eventually, the combat will be more item-based, but currently it’s about rationing hits to the right enemy.
And there’s another thing—find your friends! Talk to people and search your environment to find helpful tips, secrets, and useful items. An extra hand in combat dramatically improves your chances of success, and each new person brings new opportunities to the fray!
