Announcing: Eden's Last Sunrise

Hey, y'all! I'm thrilled to announce my next game project: Eden's Last Sunrise.



In a nutshell, it's a tactical RPG with a setting and characters very roughly based on my old series of games. It's got all your classic tactical RPG favorites, and a few new twists as well: isometric turn-based battles, a job system, custom weapon loadouts, socialization mechanics, branching paths, and multiple allies to recruit and train.

So, what comes next? Well, I'll be drip-feeding updates and previews of the gameplay and soundtrack on the web site, so be sure to head to the media page and sign up for emailed updates if you want to stay in the loop.

The Kickstarter campaign starts January 9th, 2018, and a playable prototype demo will be released at the same time. Start spreading the love now, y'all!

My Next Project - Reveal Coming Soon

Happy Cyber Monday, y'all! This is just a heads-up that I am finally revealing my new game project next week! I wanted to give a little advanced notice, since I'll be crowd funding this one in the coming months. But don't worry; I've got a functioning prototype, a design document, a project plan, and all that good stuff. It's not just a couple of ideas scribbled on notebook paper, I promise!

If you want to stay in the loop, I've set up a landing page here where you can sign up to get notified by email as I get things ready on my end: http://www.sungazersoftware.com/ELS/

And what sort of game is it this time? Well, here's a little hint about the genre:



Check back next week for the full premiere! :red_dracon:

About This Game



The Tenth Line is the first commercial game project from Sungazer Software. During your adventure, you'll guide the princess of the tiny nation of Easania, far from home and desperate to escape the clutches of a mysterious cult in hot pursuit. Along with her unusual but reliable companions, you'll explore a vibrant world of humans, beasts, and dragons, all struggling to coexist in the tension following the assassination of the king of the nation of Skyweather. Troubled times are ahead, indeed - the long-prophesied end of the world is fast approaching, and with only her wits, her blade, and her royal upbringing to guide her, can she make it home to her family before the end of days?



Gameplay involves adventuring through distinct areas using traditional 2D platforming mechanics, but with a twist: each character is controlled separately, and can move, attack, and interact with the world in unique ways. You'll also visit the occasional village or safe haven, and have an opportunity to take on new quests, play cards, and chat with the locals. Enemies roam the wilds, meanwhile, and can be engaged or ambushed by your heroes, thrusting your party into battle.

Battles are turn-based with an active timing element: you'll decide on commands for each character, then carry those attacks out using careful timing and targeting. Then, it's the enemy's turn to retaliate, giving your party an opportunity to defend. And, with up to twelve enemies on the offense at one time, survival is not always a safe bet. Fortunately, eliminating large numbers of foes at once will leave fewer attackers behind to retaliate, and will also grant your party more momentum, allowing for even more powerful skills to be used during the next attack!

Progression is handled solely by finding and applying items to your characters. Items are plentiful, and have multiple uses, so smart distribution of your treasures is key to survival. Characters can use items for training, powering up their skills and their defensive abilities, or use them to empower their "specialties" and gain a personal, tactical edge in combat. Your party members can also gain "power levels" by winning battles, completing quests, and collecting power fragments in the world. Power levels can be spent on the "Power Flow" board by playing a puzzle-like minigame to increase stats and unlock new skills. It is a challenging, refreshing method of "leveling up" that rewards careful planning and smart decisions.

A standard dual-analog gamepad is highly recommended, though the keyboard is supported.
