About This Game

Nice Spice takes JRPG-like elements (in-depth story segments, towns, equipment, leveling, etc) and combines it with randomized action-platformer battles.

SETTING OVERVIEW


In an enigmatic hellish underworld, different queer furry folk on their own journeys find one another and quickly form friendships and band together. They learn of mysterious arcane spices that when consumed, giant monsters and dungeons are summoned. With different personal goals and needs they decide that working together to collect the spices and conquer the dungeon is the best way to move forward, even if the path is full of dangers and peril. They travel through caves of guts and bones, goo, etc.

The story will feature themes of sexuality, mental health, queer comradery, and finding a sense of place in a hostile world.

CHARACTERS


The game has an ensemble cast of playable characters and NPCs, such as:
  • Oregano, the perpetually anxious green canine who must rescue his boyfriend captured by a cultist.
  • Yonko Donko, the donkey who taps into her inner butch badass when she learns to channel her punk idol.
  • Preston, the nudist burnout shopkeeper who scavenges the ground for items.
  • Marble, the otherworldly latex-clad being who is a total sweetie.
  • A furry dragon with a thing for being tied up.
  • Clyde, mysterious mummy, possibly hibernates in an egg made of bandages.
  • Two mysterious canine demons who love prophecies, and have a floating head mascot creature pal.

GAMEPLAY


The fighting revolves around action-platforming and randomization. Once you get into an encounter with an enemy in a dungeon or in a random battle, you must complete a series of random-generated rooms with varying terrain and enemy placements, as well as random powerups when you defeat enemies, etc. You'll also be focusing on managing XP, equipment, coins, finding shops etc.

Aside from the action segments, the other equally major focus of the game is on the story segments. You'll spend lots of time getting to know the ensemble cast, spending time with eccentric townsfolk, and progressing a large story. The main story will be linear but you'll be given freedom to explore and find denizens to hang out with to also further the plot.

In all there are several different views and modes used to traverse the game's world:
  • side-view random-gen action platforming battles
  • side-view to explore towns and caves, very chill
  • a top-down dungeon-crawling view, very trippy
  • a SNES-style psuedo 3D overworld
  • and scripted story segments will bring you to new areas too
