6v6 combat preview is now available. Ren'Py is such an amazing engine, IMHO.
It's been a challenge to get to the stage where I'm able to create games like this.
But the time was so well worth it.

Can't wait to finish the remaining characters!

Thank you! The artwork is from OpenGameArt (credits of everything in YouTube description).
I am focusing on giving them the combat spirit, hahaha. :D

I was able to easily modify the code, so enemies become larger, based on a Health multiplier!
I'm not sure if anyone else is working with SpriteManager, but I will share the simplicity that worked for me!
I plan on making a nice tutorial in the future, to show how I have been able to manage the SpriteManager with complex games.

Code: Select all

    # Set Sprite Data
    self.sprite = sprite
    if multiplier == 2:
        self.health = int(self.health*multiplier)
        self.sprite = At(sprite,sizeup2)
    elif multiplier == 3:
        self.health = int(self.health*multiplier)
        self.sprite = At(sprite,sizeup3)
    self.show = manager.create(self.sprite)

Code: Select all

transform sizeup2:
    zoom 2.0
transform sizeup3:
    zoom 3.0

Image


In the worlds to come, enemies will be tougher.
Higher health pool means active skill will proc more often.
This makes some stages a real challenge, and mixing & matching units will become necessary to advance!

More to come throughout the development! :)

UFO abducts the enemy at the beginning of combat.
Here is a preview.

Did I say how much I love Ren'Py? :D

There has been a lot of progress since last video, so I thought I'd share another sneak peek!

That large reptile went and got his dragon friends.

This was the last Hero for the Alien Universe.
3 of 9 worlds are complete! :D

Multiverse Heroes is nearing completion, so I decided to launch a proper website for the game.
http://www.multiverseheroes.com

I'll be keeping this Work in Progress until the game is completed (1-2 weeks).
Afterwards, any features or updates, will be announced on the website, rather than WiP.

Looking forward to this. Still have skills for slightly more than half of the characters to go.
Luckily, most of the mechanics are already implemented!

Okay, back to work for me. :D

Hey, SypherZent, good to see you again! I have to say I'm impressed at how quickly you work. ^_^ This game looks super cool, and way different from a lot of the other things I've seen made in Ren'Py. I'm looking forward to the release. c:

Hey Zelan! Good to see you, too!
And thank you for the compliment!

Currently in testing, and polishing everything so that it runs smoothly across different systems.
Had a few issues I did not expect, but already solved (*whew* lol :3).
Will be releasing soon. Looks like mid-February, from here. :)

Will definitely post in the Forums once it is ready...
Hoping it will be fun for everyone! :D
