"Someday I'll finish my game... someday.."
Hi Friends,

I'm David. I'm a long time fan of indie games and especially RM2K/3. It's absolutely amazing to see what other have created here. I started gaming with the TI-99/4A computer with titles like "Hunt the Wumpus" and "Tunnels of Doom". Yeah...I'm showing my age here. From there, the classic old Sierra games like King's Quest and Space Quest were my favorite.

I'm working on remaking Tunnels of Doom with RPG Maker 2003, it an ambitious project giving this game an RPG story when it never had one before. In retrospect I probably should have remade Hunt the Wumpus first... it would have been a lot easier! (But then again... I'd want to give that game an RPG story as well!)

I'm looking forward to learning more about writing and character development here, as this is an area I can definitely improve on. So when I'm not doing my day job, I'll be here on RMN lurking and learning.

Feel free to talk to me, I'm easily approachable!

Tunnels of Doom RM2K

So far I only played the story mode:
I can see the huge effort put in the game, there's a LOT of options to change gameplay but some things didn't make it for me like the menu opening when you press the cancel button when choices are given ( Canceling it opens it again) and some other minor stuff (like the delay between some actions.)

The dungeon experience is really nice, the mapping is good and it's really AWESOME that you made a functional tactical rpg for fights huge fan of that i'm very impressed!

I played until you start playing with Ethan. I'll continue playing some other time :)

Glad you like it so far Brawnie! You've only got a little bit left to go before you reach the point where I hit a wall. Keep going and you'll see some interesting graphics right after you leave the castle...

I think you'll also like Classic Mode... play on Easy, 4 Levels, and have a party of 4 (two fighters, one wizard, and one rogue).. Much different experience!!


Tunnels of Doom RM2K

Gonna post my impressions in comment form, since, you know, this game is not complete yet. I'd give it a 4/5 in its current state, but I'd rather wait for the full thing before posting a rating.

Wow Gretgor! I'm really glad you liked it! Your feedback really made my day too, because I was starting to think that no one was going to watch the intro :)

I'm proud of the random dungeon generator.. it truly is random and not a pick of created maps, and you're right that was a lot of work.

The fountain is taken from the original game, which would randomly heal or hurt you. I might rethink how that works... maybe just full party heal. Drinking unidentified potions can also be bad for you!

I really want to finish the story mode (with 5 total dungeons), and the intent is to get dungeon only mode up to 10 levels and include Dragon enemies, like the original game... but THAT would make for a LONG survival game.

Thanks for letting me know about the problem areas too.. some of those I can fix. My challenge will be finishing the story... well.. cause I didn't write it all out first (Cardinal Sin!).

I appreciate you playing it, Gretgor!

By the way... what was your party make up in Dungeon Only mode?

This looks super awesome! Gonna have to check it out soon!

Hey Gretgor! I hope you give it a try, and would love to read your feedback!

Tunnels of Doom RM2K

I've played the chapter one.
So far the game is great, I've liked the battle system, it's totally unique, if you see all the other games here.
Hope to see the next chapters. See ya!

Thank you Sedenha! I think part of chapter 2 is out there... at least I hope it is! Looking forward to making more updates here soon.

The Penultimate Push

Absolutely... the game is incredible. I think I have your latest version... but I'll message you to be sure. Just gotta do it right and get you a new long play!

Seasons of RMN

Well guys... I had every intention of finishing a game in time, but the company I work for had other plans for me this month. I got as far as concept, and a couple of maps, but otherwise a totally unplayable game. I'll have to settle for checking out the games from the other teams and writing reviews.

Thanks for the opportunity!

What are you thinking about? (game development edition)

You can thank Cherry for that I think... I love the full version and that you get 9999 variables instead of 5000 max.

Whatchu Workin' On? Tell us!

Looks Amazing Macbeth! Can't wait to see it live.

Seasons of RMN

While I like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, the fact that davenport submitted a game barely three days after the event began is fishy. Moreso because it says "version 2.48".

And I've barely made three maps so far and no game mechanics yet.
