Aurora - Official Forum

Aurora Forest… is here.

What is Aurora Forest?

  • Aurora Forest was originally an idea I got from playing StardewValley, but eventually turned into a WAY different concept
  • Aurora Forest is a platformer rpg with… magic

Is it a story game too?

  • Simple answer, yes… Aurora Forest is a story game, there will be a lot of dialogue produced.

Here’s the character holding the staff (controlled with your cursor)

At the current moment, your staff points at an object that always goes to your cursor, I did this so that even when your cursor was still hidden the staff still pointed at where the cursor last was.

Should I keep this or take it out?

  • Keep it…
  • Take it out…

looks neat! a nice low resolution art. Reventure has a similar style, maybe check that out.
(try to keep pixels the same size, it looks weird when the grass pixels look so much smaller than the character pixels)

Just remembered, the grass is the same pixel size as the character actually…

I resized the player with code so it looked bigger, now the pixels are bigger, it’s only 2 times the size so if I do a 4x4 on the grass I think it’d look more natural.

I’m going to use Reventure’s art style, I like it a lot, so in conclusion I’m changing all the art but the player sprite and staff sprite.

Guess I’m keeping it!

Thanks for participating in the poll everyone!

Reventure’s grass sprite was my reference, basically the same but I like it.

Hey that looks a lot better, actually! A testament to how you don’t need to try to make it look realistic if it works with the style.
Glad reventure is such a positive inspiration!

UPDATE!

CURRENT ENEMIES:

  • Slime! Reacts to all enchantments and has neat animations, cute but deadly

OTHERS:

  • Tutorial is now finished
  • Added a slash attack, balances game for frost and stealth enchantment players, so they can do damage
  • Polished things, added animations to magic staff, and you get different color staff for whatever your default enchantment is
  • Another thing to go with polishing, added hit-points when taking damage or forcing damage on enemies

UPDATE

Blaze enchantment has been renamed to the “Double Damage Enchantment”

You do 2x the damage as your slash attack. (slash attacks will be upgrade-able in the future)
