Here, have a look. I doubt it will go anywhere. Sorry for the lack of sound. :(
My Fan-made game and The Editor used to make the game. :)

Did you ever decide on a story for this game?

Nah. Too much time spent on mechanics, tricks, etc. Still a lot of code that needs fixing and stuff. Story would be nice though.

Very awesome looking! It's very exciting to think about what you could do with your own game. Are you going to make a Dragon Quest "doujin" game? Did you base this off of code from a DQ game?


The Devil takes notes from Lina Inverse? That sounds about right.

Nah, this is basically a mixure of DQ, FF and custome stuff. a lot leaning the DQ way. I once had an active battle system but didn't think it fit a DQ game. The game has a few more tricks not shown in the preview. I created a scripting engine and compiler just for this game...

here is a link to another Gameplay Video. This one showing move dungeon crawling.

here is a pic of my script editor. the syntax will look familiar to C and basic coders. :)

Looking good, except the 3D dungeon part. Yuck! I really hated those things. Anyway, nice job.

Hahah thats funny. Im no fan of the dungeon crawl in 3D either but i did
Enjoy playing shining in the darkness and that is where i got my idea from.
Its only raycasting and not 3D anyway. Not THAT good of a coder.

Yeah, I've played a few of them and never enjoyed any of them. At least the battle part. Even persona 1 was a chore to play through those things for me, as much as I liked it. They were just never fun to me. I prefer a top down dungeon just like the rest of the game for my part. The game engine is kind of looking more similar to Lunar than either FF or DQ :) That's a good thing IMO. Maybe you steal the lunar dungeon idea too. Although I prefer the random encounters on Sega CD over on screen like on PSX. But hey, this is just kicking around a can of ideas that you can feel free to ignore :P

The engine is in a state where a game could actually be produced from it.
It would take some a team of people to get it going though.
All the enemy animations, weapon animations, etc were taken from DQ3. I ripped the
tiles, sprite animation data from the ROM. I remember trying to use some guys PCX files
that he took a long time for him to do. I ripped that crap in a half day or so. :)
Hacking is fun. Anyway. Map design, Sprite layout, events, items, text. All that
would need to be done. What I have is just thrown together. :(

Example. This is a sequence I put together using event flags and stuff from a king...

EDIT: Using code sucks... Font color is not good. :(

Hmm... Looking pretty nice! It could be fun to write a DQ fan game, but I'd feel like I'd have to go back and replay all the games int he series in order to get in the mind-frame for the task. If anyone out there has some great story ideas, this is your chance to speak up ;)
