Zelion is a text based RPG taking inspiration from the oldies but goodies from the 80s and 90s, while also introducing some modern gaming aspects such as quests and save features.This is a passion project from a single person who enjoys playing old games and wishes to use the same style and attempt to make them accessible to modern players. I hope to bring this game to steam and plan to have a windows release. I also wish to bring the game to MacOS but that will have to decided at a later date.

Hello, I am Harry and I am creating this text based adventure game as a passion project of mine and would to share it with people this indie DB is where I plan to post updates and take questions. I also plan to do youtube videos explaining what I am doing and what is going to be added. I will also upload alpha and beta builds here for people to test and play.

So What do I have so far?

I have implemented:

- navigate-able map

- Basic AI interaction

- Inventory System

- Loot System

- Battle System

- Random encounters

While this does seem like a lot there is still much more that needs to be implemented and work on the game is purely based around what time I have available away from school and family commitments.

Other Information

The images shown are of some of the code and map, The interpretation code for the game is well over 400 lines long now and the total written code without any of the images and sound files if over a megabyte. So a lot of base work is done, but there is so much more to be implemented.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and looking at my game, I hope you are as excited as I am to see it finished :)
