Fates of Ort - retro fantasy RPG


#1

Hey everybody!

I am finally getting around to creating a Defold community page for my game, Fates of Ort. I will try to keep this thread up to date with developments about the game. I live stream development on Twitch most weekdays - if you are interested in seeing the game being made then please drop me a follow.

In brief, Fates of Ort is a retro fantasy RPG with a couple special mechanics:

  • The action is a turn-based / real-time hybrid. Whenever you stand still and are not casting a spell, everything around you freezes.
  • The magic spells at your disposal cost HP. You need to be strategic and ensure you are not taking damage from enemies, while ensuring you are not wasting hit points on unnecessary spells.
  • Each spell can be combined with one of three elements, producing a different effect.

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for being active on social media. And please let me know if you have any ideas on how we can help you. I.e. - some pre-scheduled SMM to drive our subscribers to your live stream? Or your video content on our youtube?

@Axel and I are open for your ideas :wink:

Oleg, thank you very much for the offer! Currently my social media “strategy” consists of an attempt to create a steady stream of screenshots/videos to post on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram in order to generate a following. I am also toying with the idea of creating a Youtube devlog series to cover things like game mechanics, story elements, and obstacles encountered during development.

I would love to discuss more with you two (@Axel has all my details). If there’s anything we can co-ordinate together then all the better - I push for Defold all the time and have converted at least one disciple to the cause! :smiley:

Hey everybody, it’s been a while! What with life getting in the way (just minor things… like getting married), progress has been a bit slow. But it’s picking up again!

I’ve knocked out some good things, most notably a trailer. I’m a total amateur at video editing so I am pretty happy with how it turned out. Let me know what you think!

Hey @Pkeod, thanks for the like! You have been particularly important in helping make this happen. Fates of Ort uses defOS, defsave, and defblend. Massive thanks to you for all your efforts.
