The Dream King is a unique blend of multiple genres into one Side Scrolling Action Role Playing Game! It is intended to capture the magic of the childhood classics of the early 80's and 90's gaming era!
The Dream King will be available on Windows, Ubuntu, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Ouya, and hopefully Steam and Gamestick in 2014!
The game will immerse the player in a high fantasy world with a wide range of developed characters and story! It is being produced for multiple platforms (including PC, Steam, Ouya, Gamestick, Android, and Iphone) and it is scheduled to be released in 2014. It offers the player an immense world to explore with a compelling cast and plot!
The game features elements from other classic games such as Mega Man, Final Fantasy, and Castlevania, but it will also feature Street Fighter moves and local cooperative and versus gameplay!
The Dream King plays in a non-linear "Metroidvania" style, where the player must navigate throughout a large world in order to find artifacts, weapons and abilities so that they can advance to other areas. It also combines elements from other genres such as vert-shooters with "bullet hell" or "curtain fire" gameplay!
There will be an enormous cast of over 20 playable characters, each one being unique in how they help support the team in reaching the goal! A great amount of teamwork can be used to reach new areas, and the right combinations of characters and skill sets can be used to the teams advantage! The game will also feature a Versus Mode in which the players can battle one another and test out their skills!
Also, just like in the popular game Final Fantasy VII, Endica VII will have fun mini-games available within the main quest. These mini-games will be the dreams that the players have throughout the game, and can later on be accessible at any given time for even more 4-player excitement! Some of the mini-games aren't so mini, a few of them even resemble some other famous titles, for example a mini-game that largely resembles Bomberman!
Although the characters and story are a high priority during development, the quality of gameplay has already been well established! The engine is being created using my "Mega Man Perfect Harmony" fan game!
Footage from my separate 4-Player Mega Man Fan Game.
As mentioned before, the game combines the best elements from a broad range of genres to create a perfect mixture of entertainment. It plays almost as if it were a Mega Man game, with action, platforming, and quick reflexes being a big part of it.
However it also plays like a Final Fantasy game, with a very long story where a player can invest over 50 hours of gameplay! Characters can also progress in their abilities, and there are even towns and shops to purchase better equipment and speak with non-playable characters.
There are also elements and influences from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The player must navigate a vast world while collecting items and abilities in order to progress onward to other areas. Certain move inputs such as the "Hadoken" motion can also be used to perform special abilities, and there's also a very wide variety of weapons each with unique special abilities
Both of my games feature cooperative and versus modes. I plan on releasing several sequels for both games, but most of my time will be devoted to seeing The Dream King completed, so that I can turn my hobby into a full time job and continue doing what I do best!
The Versus Mode for both games plays a bit like Super Smash Bros, with a lot of the
same menu options, play mechanics, and so forth such as items and
enemies you can turn on and off! Test your skills against one another in 4-Player Time, Stock, or Frag Limit matches!
The game will also seem a little bit like Legends of the Mystical Ninja, in that it is a cooperative action RPG with a lot of mini-games within it! The Dream King will include a ton of really zany 4-Player mini-games that are accessible via dreams within The Enchanted Castle!
In the world of Endica, ancient prophecies tell of a hero who will bring peace to the world.
is an orphan who believes he can achieve the impossible! With help from
his friends, he is absolutely determined to climb the tower in order to
break the curse on the world and usher in an age of peace!
This is a story truly designed for people of any age, race, or gender in mind. The future king himself has the blood of every race within him, and the adventures he and his friends go on are sure to entertain kids, teenagers, and adults, male or female.
The tone and atmosphere is very dark, and yet the story and characters seem to always remain bright. It has strong messages of peace, love, and remaining positive, especially during the darkest periods of your life.
The characters and story have received the most attention, they are created out of a love for art and storytelling. As a fan of classics, I believe the characters are the most important part of any story, and I strive to create ones that everyone can adore! Here is a brief summary of a few of the main characters:
A poor orphan with the blood of every race
who carries the weight of the entire world.
A bold, powerful mage in search
of someone from her dreams.
A young adventurer with hope for
the future, his destiny is in your hands.
A close friend of Dash since
childhood, she was once a bandit.
A lost girl raised by Fairies
searching for her true identity.
A modest Elven traveler who
is loyal to his companions.
Also known as The Lightbringer, the legendary swordsman
who is infamous for his immense strength and attitude.
