Something minor, but I've implemented battle backdrops from the 3DS Version of Dragon Quest XI, I hope to use tilesets from XI as well if I can extract them from the 3DS rom correctly. Progress is picking up as of late!
Don't you just LOVE snow?
Yup, I'm going there. Think of something like the Opera house in Final Fantasy VI but with its own twists.
This is probably going to end up as one of my favorite scenarios and areas in the game.
So this is the final status menu. I just did a 4 and a half hour run of the game and I'm currently making some tweaks to enemy difficulty as the SNES version is a bit too easy. More surprises coming soon!
I stand by my word that all testers will be immortalized in DQ+. I will definitely need new testers by the end of the year so be on the look out!
In the original Dragon Quest, finding a specific item required you to only look in a certain spot. Not this time. You'll have to climb Heritage Tower to prove your heritage!
The inventory menu is improving every time I work on this game. Expect to see more in an upcoming development gameplay video.
I'm trying to spruce up the designs of the original maps as much as possible. Using Final Fantasy 5/6 and Chrono Trigger as inspiration, while doing the new maps, it really helps me to reimagine the original areas.
Here's the magic menu, and you can now use Zoom as there are many more places to visit in this remake.
Even in the midst of destruction, one spirit continues to run his bank...spoopy... Oh yeah, banks are back in this game. Trust me, you'll need them.
It's your standard records menu, however if you notice the star profile, if you get all 5 stars something good will happen.
I did not have enough room for image tiles so I had to go with text instead. I'm going to try to get a gameplay video up for Friday that shows off the game in its current form.
The Mankini can be the best or worst armor in the game for a while. When you equip it the defence is randomized only once. So DEF could end up being high or low.
I hope nobody gets offended with my use of "God" in the translation. All Japanese versions of Dragon Quest 1-8 used "God" instead of the "Goddess" and I want to again, be as authentic as possible.
The game is not cancelled, it's actually going rather well and it's really becoming authentic...I mean indistinguishably authentic. Keep your eyes peeled for an update around New Years, there's a lot to go over but here's something to wet your appetite.
Ooooooooooooo! Be warned...you are being watched :-D
There are only about 15 items give or take from Dragon Quest 1. I have 35 item slots, not including story items. So there's going to be a lot of other items to collect. Weapons, Armor, and Accessories will also have their own 35 slots each.
Okay, so I went back to the authentic Dragon Quest style. The other style just wasn't working out and it looked a bit cheap. This is more traditional and classic, and true to Dragon Quest. Hope there' s no hard feelings.
"Ljink, it looks nice but where's the battle system" It's not done yet.
Just a minor change in Dragon Quest plus. In the original games, you looked like you had all the legendary armor even if you didn't. In this game, only when you have all the legendary armor will your character portrait and sprite change.
Warning: You can only use Upper and lower, 0-9, Underscore, and Exclaim as characters. I only have 120 images to work with and with battles and the menu, I had to go with 4 slots only. Get creative with those names!
This is the inital design for my menu. As I said earlier, it borrows some design choices from my other game but it is a bit different. It's not final but it works. That's good!
Alefgard has plenty of secrets hidden under the sea.
Mercado has been transformed into a desert town.
Orochii Volcano is only a small part of the bonus dungeon. Sadly, you will have to go through the bonus dungeons alone as I will no longer be aiming for 4 party battles.
Yup, this is it. The colors, everything is finalized. The whole main game is still being re-developed but should be done by the years end. This gives me time to work more on bonus stuff.
Changed the character to Rocket Slime. This slime's name is "Slyde" a play on the name Clyde.
