Timehole Travellers is a classic console-style RPG / Smash em Up - Mix. It features local "Couch-Coop", so you can discover this adventure with your friends or wife! ;) In this game you will have to travel through different universes to save your own world. Discover mysterious places and creatures. Interact with NPCs, upgrade skills and stats and use your magic skills to defeat your foes... Since this is a one-man-project i can't tell you when it's done, yet. I do it primarily for my portfolio and will release it free of charge when/if the game is finished. I'm using an own engine, written in visual studio c++, using OpenGL for the graphics part and IrrKlang for the sound.

AI:

Last time i posted anything here, it was either possible to play the game alone or with a friend. Now the second player is permanent, which means if you are playing alone, the other character will be controlled by a new AI. It can follow/attack/heal/cast spells/etc. just like any other player. This new feature also helps me balancing the game a lot!

Talking about AIs: Even the "evil foes" are much tougher now. They will attack you in groups whenever possible. Further they have an improved "targeting" mechanism, can be in "rage" after they have been attacked, and much more.

Gameplay:

I'm glad I can announce two major changes. First of all I have implemented a new CLASS CHANGE system. At a certain point in the game players can now complete optional areas and change their class after beating the stage. It is possible to transform your character into a fighter, mage or ranger. Each class has it's own benefits and will make the characters look different.

Second: You can have PETS now! :) They will follow you through all the battle stages and increase either your spell recovery, will heal you or make you run faster, depending on the pet you choose.

There are also some new elementary based weapons now which you can obtain later in the game. And I've also added light sabers.. ;)

Graphics:

I've added moving CLOUD SHADOWS to some levels, improved the sun, added a REFLECTION, made some of the SHADOWS look more realistic and some more.

Misc:

I was able to improve the code a lot, so the game now runs smoothly on most low-end systems - like my 7 years old laptop (1,3 GHZ / 512 MB RAM / 128 MB ATI somewhat graphics).

The story is almost done, however i still need to translate it, since the game will be multilingual (ger/eng)

Last but not least.... Of course there are many, many new areas: A beach, the desert, three optional levels, a pyramid, .....

What's next?

I'm currently balancing the game, which takes some time. There are also some bugs that need to be fixed (but the list is getting smaller), and as I mentioned above I still have to translate the whole thing and add some more levels.

Nice, liking the look of this, will it support xbox 360 gamepads and rumble?

Hey! The game automatically assigns the first two detected pads to both players. Since you only need 5 buttons (and an analog stick), pretty much any gamepad should just work fine. However I couldn't try out my 360 pads since I do not have a dongle for it, but I'm quite sure this shouldn't be a problem.
Rumble support isn't planned, sorry.
