A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

A Game-Boy-style hybrid of Mega Man Battle Network and Final Fantasy Legend II.

Created for Game Boy Jam 6 in a bit over a week. The original deadline version (0.0.1) is also here for posterity, but it's a buggy unplayable mess, so I'd prefer you play 0.0.2. If you're curious what changed, there's an included changelog.md. 90% of the extra work was fixing bugs.

A sequel to the text adventure Bardolf's Curse.

KNOWN ISSUES

Had an extra two days for bugfixes, but still ran out of time! Here's what's left (that I know of):

  • In the overworld, wait for movement to finish before opening the menu - otherwise a battle might start and all Hell breaks loose!
  • Don't press SELECT at the victory screen! Bad things happen :(
  • Claim card is super buggy - if it works, you're lucky!
  • On occasion, iframes can be sketchy especially if you mash
  • The damage noise is awful and if it plays enough it'll stop, like it knows that it's annoying
  • The knights aren't supposed to get into the same cell but sometimes they defy all logic and do anyway
  • Linux and Mac OSX versions are untested, but should work fine. *crosses fingers*

GAMEPLAY - BATTLE

Battle starts with a Spell selection menu. Choose up to five spells, but they must match in type (name) to take multiple into battle.

During battle, you can use your main weapon as much as you want but Spells are much more powerful! Keep an eye on the top of the screen to know when you can get more spells.
