Gorak's Wrath is an action RPG in the same vein that old Super NES games like Secret of mana, Illusion of Gaia, Secret of evermore etc.. but with a South Park kind of scenario, dialogues and characters. It tries to establish an out of touch feeling between the main quest of the hero and the fact that his companions and events are not heroics at all. The game is mainly focused on ginving the player fun rather than giving him the feeling to run for an amazing quest where he's the only one who can save the world (although that's what he really is). Game has been in development since March 2016.
After 2 months of development, I have some content I wish to share with you so you can give me feedbacks and generally, tell me what you think about what I'm going for.
I've been developing Gorak's Wrath on my spare time since March 2016. The story is about some strange entity that is slowly destroying the world and you're a kid which is immune against its powers.
That entity is Gorak, and your quest is to save the world!
Pretty basic stuff in the vein of the old Super NES games of my childhood like Secret of mana, Illusion of Gaia, Secret of Evermore etc...
My emphasis will be on making a game that is fun to play, with dialogs and events inspired by South Park, The Simpsons, Futurama etc ...
I want this kid to be a real hero, but surrounded with companions that are absolutely useless and even obstacles to the hero's quest (maybe like Abu in Aladdin?).
Here is a video showcasing the full game as it is right now (yeah I know the title screen is really ugly ^^) :
And some screenshots:
There is no playable demo for now, but as soon as I'll have something worth playing, I'll upload it here!
I'm planning to regularly add screenshots of the game development, as well as pixel art, code snippets, infos etc.. anything I think is valuable to the rest of the community :)
I'm glad to join this community and I wish we'll be able to bring something to each others!
Let’s start this big adventure!
