If you can finish this project, and don't have a composer, I'd be happy to write some music for you in the future. :)

I also finished the ingame portrait of the main hero :)
Show us!  :) I want to see his face!

... And yes, - seems to me, you've found a composer.  ;)

So here it is the Starting screen logo (Unfinished) and the ingame menu portrait of the character where his hp,mp,exp,def will be displayed.



The progress is slow at the moment because I am tweaking some things in the game. I also have ideas for making my own site for gaming thingies and some plasticine stop-motion animations for my youtube channel. However I will finish this game and I hope to release the demo soon.

I like it! :) But may be the eye of the hero is too long and too white. It's just a square, really. I think it would look better if you would use grey as a shadow (of the eye, I mean).

Can anyone show me a good place to find COMPLETELY free sounds and ambient music. I searched but most of them want credit for things like thunder sounds ... I would greatly appreciate any help at this point :)

A good website for SFX: http://www.universal-soundbank.com/

And as for music, I'll quote myself:

I'm glad to see another fan going through the trouble to draw all new art for his game. You're fighting the good fight my friend. Looks good. almost has classic NES vibe. Keep it up!

I did not update the game info in a loooong time so I have decided to post some more info :)

Lately I am collecting sounds and incorporating them into the game. For now I have the sounds of all 3 weapons as well the sounds of the enemies and the boss. I figured out how to make the sounds external because otherwise the game exe will be too large so this is a goon news. There will be folder with the sounds next to the game icon. I decided to distribute the game RAR-ed for convenience :)

Now as for the game I made a new stat which we all know the ATK (attack power) and I have incorporated it into the inventory system so for example many armors and accessories will give attack power as well as armor and other possible buffs. This will make the game more interesting and not so bland :)

The start screen is ready I just need to make a third button called info so the players could see how the controls and the game stats work ... I don't want anyone to get confused :)

I have made many and many and many runs through the demo stage and I did not found gamebreaking bugs. I just want to add and polish some things here and there.

I want to take my time and make this demo a success because otherwise if it fails I doubt the players will give my game a second chance :)

Also I am thinking (AND IT IS HARD AS HELL) of the main characters name. Few ideas come to my mind like Victor Nox, Chistian "something" I want to be something memorable.

If you're having trouble with names then I would suggest that you get your hands on a name dictionary. Eventually you will find something that sounds right to you. His first name; Victor already seems to fit well so I'd say you are halfway there.  :)

I would use the Romanian name, Decebal. It means "strong as ten."
