Valchion is a action RPG with retro graphics and simple mechanics. It features bright, GameBoy Color-styled visuals, and a (hopefully) memorable soundtrack. It should be released for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It's also being made with the Blender Game Engine, which features fast game creation and no time spent exporting to an external engine.

Yo!

This is just a little update post to say what I'm working on now and link my current project, for anyone who's still interested in me as a developer or my older projects. It's called Shakecan Games, and is a label for games I make "under pressure" so to speak. As of the time of this writing, I've already completed a couple of games and am looking forward to making more. Check it out!

Oh, and I'm back on IndieDB posting this here on Valchion's page because I'm trying to make sure as many people as possible know about my projects. I'm planning to continue development at a goodly pace, and a lot of my old ideas for games will carry over into my new stuff. So I'm sure you'll see some things like Valchion, Sparky, and Misshoni from me very soon.

Thanks,
Sol

Quick, how did you make the dialogs and its logic on Blender?! Have you any tutorial about it? The stuff like the "!" and the dialogs are pure 2D? if yes, How did you make it on Blender 3D? :O

I just get hypnotized with beep-beep-beep of the dialogs :'O

Awesome game!!

Well, I do it with Python. The dialogs and "!" are both 2D sprites, of a sort. I'm using a GUI module named BGUI to handle the drawing of the icons and text.

And thanks!

Hey SolarLune. After tons of procrastinating, I'm going to learn programming, and a dev for a game called Firefall told me to start with Python. In your opinion, how easy is it to learn, and how well does it, heh, blend with blender game engine?

Sorry that I completely missed these.

I'm surprised that a developer for FireFall answered your question - seems like they'd be super busy!

Anyway, Python's very easy to learn, and works pretty well with the BGE. The Python version included with the BGE is a pretty much complete distribution of Python, so as far as I know, whatever you would want to do with "vanilla" Python can be done with the BGE's Python.

Thanks a lot. I'll be resuming development on this in a week or so. I should be able to come out with another demo soon, as well.

@Gedo_Paladin">.@Gedo_Paladin Yeah, it's not always easy (it still isn't sometimes), but just keep hacking away at ideas. You'll be able to create stuff!

@PirateFraser">.@PirateFraser Staying motivated is possible by focusing on the (realistically small) goal. Making huge projects can become hard easily.
