An 2014 Indie Game Development Contest entry. Can you defeat the Vampire?



Sunsong Review

I tried to do something different with the graphics. I'm not very skilled at making graphics or writing stories, so I edited the RTP as I have no money and in the context of this contest no time to commission custom retro graphics which would be more accurate. The retro theme was an idea so I could avoid a complex plot. I could have used NES colors, but it didn't look different enough from the regular RTP.

Sunsong Review

Thank you for the review! I intend to address your concerns about the game. I've messages you a more detailed description.

Although I do not think I will change the green, I should have given some context earlier; it is intended to mimic the original Game Boy, not a night vision goggles. The soundtrack is composed with OrgMaker, a chip tune program by Studio Pixel, which is why the music sounds old school: it is! Though I suppose I can't change an opinion, I'd hope it's not terrible c:

I will release a new version shortly to address these concerns and others.

Aside from one issue where the AI plays two cards one after another that happens occasionally, very very good.

With that issue, if the AI was the player that led, this results in the game being impossible to finish as you wouldn't be able to play your last card, as the game expects the AI to play a card before you so you can have your last turn, but as the AI is out of cards it sits there waiting for the AIs turn to end.

Could you tell me the steps that would reproduce the bug?

I played it in FFIX and even won a tournament, but the rules are...It's like they don't exist there. Will try it when I'll have time.

A full copy of the rules comes with the game.
