A downloadable game for Windows

This game is a platformer/action rpg. (Work in progress)

The story is about a young mage that is tasked with stopping newly awakened magic users, who's powers have gone out of control. All while trying to balance her own past and issues. (Haven't started on implementing the story yet however.)

This first game will focus on her task to take down one of these mages. The goal is to have at least 2 enemy types, 1 dungeon, and 1 boss fight. Currently only the start of the two enemies are implemented, I still need to make the dungeon and boss fight.

Currently working on this solo, as my first project ever. It is very early in development, so don't expect too much as of yet.


Keyboard and Mouse:

- WASD to move, W or Spacebar to jump

- L Mouse button or Z to melee, R Mouse button or F to fireball

- Shift to dodge, Q to heal, E to interact (only works on chests right now)


- L Stick to move

- A button to jump, B to dodge, X to melee, Y to fireball

- L trigger to heal, D-pad Up to interact (only works on chests right now)

Coming Soon:

- Dodge animation nearly complete (I've procrastinated again)

- The Settings menu

- Enemy attack animations

- Enemy AI to track the player and wind up an attack

- Background tiles that are distinguishable from the foreground (White boxes are the placeholders right now)

- Add XP points tracker (Might not use XP after all)

- Puzzles

- Story: discoverable text logs

- Character portraits for when Lanya speaks

- The dungeon

- The boss

Amazing game dev had so much fun playing it :) i hope you enjoy my gameplay 

Thank you so much for the kind words! I’m glad you had fun, until the point where it’s unfinished. Sorry I didn’t indicate that in the game.


I'm really exciting for the next updates :)
