Third public alpha build PA03 is out! - 1/26/2014

IMPORTANT: SAVE SYSTEM IS NOT IMPLEMENTED YET

Changes:

First off, I switched development platforms (Game Maker 8.1 to Game Maker: Studio, which is an altogether different beast) so the game runs on a new architecture, which is what I'll be using for the rest of development.

  • Screen scaling is handled differently now (SHOULD be more pixel-perfect with less instances of
  • UI tweaks and bug fixes
  • Inventory context menu has additional functionality, though 'sort' does not work yet, and 'drop' does not work in weapons/armor item lists
  • MOAR text popups!
  • Quest system dropped in and working 
  • Additional story element and Quest added for the only boss in the game so far
  • Fetish and Favor additional functionality
  • More Font and UI polishing
  • Easter Egg location to help celebrate Twitch.tv streamer Indie (Dan) celebrate his partnership, featuring a sneak-peek at a new Indie (Dan) themed Boss
  • Squished lots of bugs (and probably created many new ones as a result)

 

=====================DEFAULT CONTROLS=====================

 

KEYBOARD CONTROLS:

 

Arrow Keys: Move about

'A':        Attack (back or cancel in menus), Speed walk on overworld map, hold UP + 'A' to use/throw whatever you have equipped in a sub-slot            

SPACE:      Jump (confirm in menus)

ENTER:      Bring up inventory (or PAUSE the game in classic pause mode (OVERWORLD MAP will not draw             correctly with this))

'S':        Cycle through sub-equipment slots

ESCAPE:     Will exit the game to the desktop

Alt+Enter:  Switch between windowed and fullscreen modes 

The game has native gamepad support, so feel free to plug in a 360 controller, or any other USB gamepad. Pads tested so far include a variety of 360 pads (Microsoft and 3rd party), retro USB NES controllers (though I haven't used one I liked at ALL), an ancient Gravis Gamepad Pro, and PS3 Six Axis controller. 

All of the keyboard controls and gamepad controls can be customized in the Options > Setup Controls menu. 

Savage is equal parts inspired by the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard, my fascination with Zelda II (yes, yes, I know - the black sheep of the Zelda family), other games of its ilk (like Gargoyle's Quest) and a healthy dose of general barbarian fetishism.

The final product will (hopefully) include a varied, somewhat open world to explore, an interesting little tale filled with machismo, magic and muscles, day/night cycle, overworld hunting/tracking, lots of action/platforming, fun melee system and some mild RPG elements (item use, leveling up, gear, crafting and the like).

The clue is in the title, I suppose. “Savage” it reads, but I interpreted that as only referring to the character I was playing as; an escaped convict pissed off at his captors trampling over his native soil and killing his people. Damn straight you’d be savage in such a situation.

Used an image of an old NES blackbox as a template and replaced the fonts, text and images with my own :)
