My name is Jorge Pacheco, I'm a solo indie dev from Chile and this is my second game. My first game "Nomad Fleet" got mostly positive reviews on Steam and allowed me to work full time in game development (at least for the moment :) ) so I decided to start another project where I could apply what I learned. "Beastmancer" takes inspiration from games like "Heroes of Might & Magic" and Pokemon. My vision is to make a short but polished RPG that allows the player to collect monsters and engage in tactical battles.
I'm open to feedback so please consider following the project or leaving me a comment.
Here's the latest trailer and a pre-alpha gameplay video:

First I want to say I'm sorry that I stopped updating this blog but frankly I was pretty overwhelmed with the development. Making a RPG is no joke, I guess I got a bit cocky after my first game and end up underestimating the scope of this project. There's a lot of things I would have done differently if I could start over but I'll go in detail in a future postmortem, its too soon to know how this project will behave in the real market.
At least I'm happy that I didn't had to compromise in many of the combat features. I think the game has a good amount of content for an indie game but I think my biggest flaw was level design. My advice is this: don't make a big scene if you don't have a lot of things to put there.
Well, I guess I'll go in detail in the future. This is gonna be a long day for me.

Wish me luck!
