BAMN is a 2D rpg developed in c++/SDL for Windows. It features 12 dungeons, 3 side quests and 2 small towns.
Some of the game features:
* Trigger additional round actions by meeting battle requirements. These can include having certain combinations of status effects or the current the status of the team.
* Scroll system to enhance character stats and abilities.
* No items can be used in battle or the menu. There are no heal potions, etc. You have to use your abilities to manage your team. There's a Charge ability to regain MP points in battle. Defending in battle makes you invulnerable to status effects and speeds up their removal once you are inflicted with one. Since there are no usable items, there's also no sales people and new inventory can only be gained by advancing in the story.
* There are no towns in the game. There's technically 2, but not in the traditional sense. They have no inns, no sale stores, etc.
Most of the recent work on BAMN has been getting the art for the enemies and dungeons of the game. We had an artist that was working exclusively on the tilesets and back in July we started working with another artist to work on the enemies.
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to produce a new demo but we would like to at least show new screenshots of the game.
The following 2 screenshots are from the Ghost Tower dungeon. After the player is trapped in the magical dimension of Magistra, they must climb the Ghost Tower to reach a portal that can return them to the real world.
The following screenshot shows the fight against Alster, the game's first boss.
The second dungeon of the game is going through the Lavinan forest. In this forest, one enemy unit is the fish man. Here's a screenshot of one of those battles.
The third dungeon of the game is inside the Valeria, the flagship the player's group uses to travel. It's hijacked by some monsters.
We hope to have a new demo before the end of the year. Pretty much all programming is done so it depends on how fast we can get all the new art.
