~The Five Heroes~ [WIP]

Hello everyone!

It’s me @Hackertatio if you don’t know me or haven’t seen me on the forums, my name is Shon and I am 14 years old I love to program, graphic design/paint/sketch, and just making games in general. Recently I have been making a game called The Five Heroes with @[member=“Danito”]

The Story

! Thousands of years ago a Holy Mage corrupted by Fel Energy and the thirst for power would soon rule the world, his name was Degus. He enslaved the citizens of the five kingdoms and ruled a ruthless empire destroying anyone and anything getting in his way. Fortunately five heroes with unique powers and skills banded together and plotted against Degus. They trekked through the mountains of Kildian and through the Elven city Kail’dore to reach Mount. Hellfire and ontop of Mount. Hellfire was the Temple of a Thousand Suns a once peaceful Temple of the Shamans that is now corrupted by Fel Energy and is the residence of Degus. To defeat Degus the brave five heroes would have to combine all of there powers to cast the Holy Spell the only force capable in defeating Degus but when the five heroes cast the Holy Spell and imprison Degus in a time prison but the five heroes vanquish and a ball of light appears where Degus was standing. That ball of light is a baby left by the five heroes a God. Thousands of years pass and Degus’s armies are assembling creating a black portal ontop of Mount. Hellfire if this portal is created then Degus will return. It is up to the only one who can fight Degus, the God left behind the ball of light.

The Classes

! Please note that more info will be added to this section.
! Archer
! Archers or bowmen are very skilled with the bow and are very agile. Archers carry light or medium weight gear and they don’t and do rely on MP. Different Archer talents trees do or do not require MP. Archers naturally regenerate MP at a medium pace.
! Warrior
! Warriors are quite strong and very skilled with the sword, warriors tend to have the heaviest of gear, warriors also deal a ton of damage and don’t consume a lot of MP. Their MP regeneration is slow.
! Mage
! Mages are very skilled with spell casting and carry light gear. They use a wand or stave and their MP consumption is al lot as that is their main source of energy they also regenerate MP very quickly.
! Rogues
! Rogues are quite the stealthy bunch. Rogues use weapons such as knifes, daggers, and short weapons. Their MP consumption isn’t huge but their MP regeneration is also slow. They have light weight gear as they are very stealthy.
! Circuits
! Circuits are very powerful and are skilled with mechanical weapons. They have medium or heavy weighted armour they do not consume MP. Instead they have EP (Electrical Points) and they use chip sets to improve their skills.

Can’t wait for the BETA in June

Same XD

@[member=“Danito”] we have to get a lot! of work done before June! I should also have some screenshots to share next week and some more concept art.

yea but i need the engine to do anything XD

Ya sorry.

XD send it over skype

Uploaded some more concept art the bird one hope you enjoy its in colour!

Feedback on sketch is appreciated 😄

Sorry about that but, OMG ….

@MartinQua What? Why?

Hahaha wtf XDDDD

I think the concept art is cool, but you’ll probably just have to find non-copyrighted sprites that resemble what you’re going for.  I know there’s generic birds in the engine that a lot of game developers here use, and maybe some other free-ware throughout the internet.

So again, cool art, but an actual pixel artist might be tough to pull in.

Ya…  @[member=“OmegaXtc”]

I’m learning pixel art myself and SEB might be helping me but I’m trying to find a pixel artist. Thanks for the feedback though 😄

If you need a guide for pixel art then look HERE

.-. i could make sprites

Hey everyone,

I should have an update on Saturday or Sunday so stay tuned!

UPDATE

I’m not going to be here from Wednesday April 22, 2015 to Friday April 24, 2015 so if you are sending me any PM’s, or If you want to come on TFH you won’t be able to on those days, I will be here on Friday April 24,2015 only after 4 PM EST. So please keep that in mind but if you are intrested in joining the team you can still PM  me but I will only answer it on Friday, after 4 PM EST and onwards. Either than that news. Stay tuned for some awesome updates coming very soon!

If you want to come and help me map just PM me the server is up and there is no hamachi required!

*Staff UPDATE

@[member=“Cici”] has joined the team as a story/quest writer!

I would suggest that a mod/admin takes a look at this thread. Continuously self bumped with pointless information that could easily be done in a PM. Hate to be a **** but it’s went on for long enough.

Usually it’s because the owners of these threads are really excited about what they’re working on, which is great BUT they usually lack a lot of pre-production so every little update seems like a big one. My suggestion to Hackertatio, work some more on the design of your game, clean up the thread, add more screenshots and add more details. Post updates when people DO join the team, talk about their involvement. Update us when you add a new zone, a slew of new skills, etc… If you are accumulating a bunch of small updates, save them for one post rather than a bunch of separate ones.
