Olvand is a little multiplayer sandbox RPG, where the players live in self-built towns and can go on all kinds of adventures together. Imagine living with your friends in a small town in the mountains, or creating a new group of friends in a pub in the metropole you all live in. There will be several mini-games the inhabitants of a server can play together, among which will be combat based games like King of the Hill or Capture the Flag. You will be able to play against other people in your city, or as a city against another city, or as a whole server against another server. The combat works with self-built guns, in which all kinds of powers can be combined to create unique effects.

Post news Report RSS Improved visual style for Olvand

In this blogpost, I announce a quite extreme shift in Olvand's graphics: we're going to the pre-GameBoy Color era!

Posted by on

Hi all, a quick message about an important decision I made. I'm going to the visual style completely in the next update. My thought process:

1. Olvand looks retro.
2. Retro is cool.
3. If Olvand would be even more retro, Olvand would be cooler.

And what looks even more retro? Right! The look of GameBoy games before the GameBoy Color! A quick snapshot of how Olvand looks at the moment:

That's just the beginning! the next step is to reduce the sprites to 4x4 pixels and implement a black and white palette, but that's just if you wanna go off the charts. It's super effective! :)
