Tales of Yore

Well here we are again, it’s been a while with a lot of changes. Last year started out as some of the awful times of my life. I found new lows to which I could plummet and ended up being off work for a prolonged period. It really wasn’t the best of times, just the worst of times.

It did give me rather a lot of time to think and remember the joy that building Legends of Yore gave me. So I started a new project, as you can see below, Legacy of Yore. I love the game very much but it wasn’t really bringing me any new ideas or joy – so I decided to do thing I’ve told everyone I’ve ever talked to about game development not to do – pick an enormous project and just start.

Tales of Yore is an online multiplayer role play game. It’s based in my world of Yore, but it’s real time and lets people explore together in one persistent world. I don’t call it a MMORPG, since not many people play it, but hey, maybe one day!

To build Tales of Yore, just like previously, I’m using an amazing asset pack – this time it’s Minifantasy which is available over on Itch.io. It’s a really great set that I’m now an active patron of.

It’s been 7 months since I started building Tales and it’s really starting to become something that I can be proud of. There are regular players, there are tonnes of items and quests and the world of Yore is always growing. It’s not any sort of exaggeration to say that the community around Minifantasy, around Legends of Yore and around Tales have saved my life this year. Things could have turned out very differently. Thank you all the fantastic folks therein.

I found my passion again and I couldn’t be happier that it was all there waiting like a cozy tavern for me when I needed it.

Legends of Yore

Took some time, but I think I’ve got it back to building at least for the web. This gives me the option to repackage it and ship on iOS and Android as Legends of Yore Redux.

Test it out and let me know how you get on:

Legacy of Yore v209

Just uploaded Legacy of Yore release v209 – check it out at https://legacyofyore.com

This release changed a lot and added a tonne of stuff. It took longer than I’d like but I did get distracted by another project and the Gamedev.js Game Jam (I didn’t place last!). Looking through the tickets in Trello here’s a run down of some of whats new:

  • 2 new locations
  • 4 new dungeons
  • 20+ new monsters
  • 6 new quests
  • 20+ new items
  • Level vs XP rework – its now a much more sensible system
  • Android App available
  • iOS App available (though I’m holding the release on that one at the moment)
  • Items are now labelled (well with an icon) for their slot
  • Monsters can now use magic attacks
  • Monsters can now use ranged attacks
  • Show monster names while they’re attacking
  • Items and monsters can now resist magic
  • Bugs
    • Fullscreen iOS issues
    • Gems stacking
    • Music stopped while in background
    • Dead monsters getting attacks
    • Monster icons not showing on rooms
    • Treasure rooms blocking exits
    • Inventory closing after using an item is ANNOYING!
    • Hatchet is overpower
    • Make it obvious that paging exists in inventory

Hope you enjoy playing, let me know!
