So, yeah, I totally forgot I had this account.... Anyways, I posted this on AGN, too:




Ok, so this is my new project. It started off as just an idea for a difficulty setting on a quest, but it kinda mutated. As it stand now, the game forces you to choose one of four paths, which each lead you on a slightly different quest, with different enemies, dungeons, and secrets. it took me a while, but I finally finished the first demo. Special thanks to Zim for the scripts he provided.

I bit of a bit more than i could chew, originally, but I've revamped the quest, and cleaned it up, considerably. You are Link, a young janitor for a local temple. But on your 18th birthday, you are called to undergo a trial, given by the gods.

Quest description:
11 Dungeons (3 completed as of demo V3.0)
Large overworld (approximately 60% completed as of V3.0)
Mix of play styles, some dungeons are more puzzle based, some more action based, and some in between.

 

You can download the most recent demo (V3.2), for ZC 2.5, here

Here are some screenshots:

Sorry, if you don't like the classic tileset, with the amount of work involved, I figured it best to not have to worry about making tiles and layering (There is still *Some layering, but it's minimal).

Anyways, the demo goes up through level 3, the Water Temple. Please let me know if you encounter any bugs, have any suggestions, or if you just think it's lame, I'm extremely open to suggestion.

Hello there!
:)

Nice quest idea, adding the change of game by difficulty.

Although I haven't really got much of a liking to classic tiles but the color variation is pretty cool.

I can see that you need testers so ill download this later on today and give a try :) (If my net will allow it :/ )

Also you should put this quest up on the Project List if you haven't already :D
Its just up on the tabs at the top of the screen:
Quest Projects

Anyway cool concept.
I'll will give this a try later.

:clap: Good start on a first quest.

I've got a question to anyone who has been playing the quest so far: Sould I keep it the way it is, or consolidate it down to one, more focused path that I can spend more time perfecting? I ask because, honestly, it's an insane amount of work having to build all these maps over and over, many of them being nearly identical, and I'm not feeling that the idea is working as well in practice as it did in my head, so maybe it would be best to change tactics and go for something that is a little less work (at least from a tedious, repetitive standpoint) and a bit more story driven. So, any thoughts on the matter?
