It’s been a while, but that’s mostly because I’ve been debugging and working on other things, making improvements, getting the server set up,etc.
I’m not 100% with all the features I want to add in, but I do have many of them in place. I’d say about 90% done. I just need to add a few other things.
Game play is ready to go, but I’m going to add a few more features to that as well such as a few more types of Ninpo and different ranges for Ninpos and Tools.
Things I’ve recently added
Attacking while in stealth mode gives a bonus.
Attacking from behind gives a bonus, both the stealth mode bonus and this bonus stack.
Added new type of tools - Sleep Bombs
Smoke bombs also cause blind status(yes.. everything goes dark.. completely…)
Return tools - Use to instantly return to the spawn point.
Added Vitality Pills- Restore a % of your hp stamina and sometimes energy. How many you can carry is based on rank.
Also added monsters called Tengu. They are spiritual beings that will show up in the game world based on player actions and other conditions in the game world.
Currently there are 3 of them. Peace, Chaos and Creation. These tengu are beasts that must be taken on with more than one person, it’s simply impossible otherwise. They are immune to status ailments, and have various types of attacks. They can also spawn darkness tentacles, which attack a radius around them.
On the plus side, damaging the tentacles will damage the main part of the tengu.
Also considering a simple Teams system but I feel there should be benefits to joining a team other than taking out the Tengu.
Perhaps increased ryo gains or prestige boosts but I’ll work that all out later.
Also need to work on the “what else can i do besides battle?” phase of the game by adding in some mini-games. I’m open to suggestions on that.
