Crystal Orb Adventures
A downloadable game for Windows
A fantasy text adventure game in which you don't need to type: you just click on the appropriate phrase in the context menu.
The game world is randomized a bit, so you get different monsters and locations each time. The eventual goal is to have most things procedurally generated.
This is a prototype, so there's not much to do right now. You can buy equipment, explore a bit, fight monsters, find treasure in dungeons. If you explore enough, you find paths to other regions.
There are a lot of placeholders.
The game automatically saves when you rest at the tavern in a town.
I take my inspiration from old ZX Spectrum games like Valhalla and, well, The Crystal Orb.
Throughout revision 0.2 I will be focusing on improving the towns and adding quests.
Should you Donate?
Donations of even small amounts tell me there is interest in the game. If for any reason I reach a milestone in donations, I can take time off my day job and put that time into bringing the game from Prototype to Alpha.
In the discussion board below. Crystal Orb is pretty rough at the moment, but if you have any suggestions for UI or gameplay, let me know.
