Fame 0.9.4 Released
« on: October 30, 2011, 12:41:38 pm »
Hello everybody :). My roguelike called 'Fame' is under development since 2000, but is haven't been published on this board since now, so you may not know it yet:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/untitled-rpg/

RogueBasin entry:

http://roguebasin.roguelikedevelopment.org/index.php/Fame

The game is far from being completed, but nevertheless is playable. There are a few locations to visit and some quests that should take several hours of playing (or I believe so). I'd love to receive some feedback so I could know what to work on for the next release ;).

Nice.

When at the shopkeeper you have everytime to put his gold in the "exchange" column otherwise he gets your stuff without paying, right?
I discovered it after giving away like 20 mushrooms..

Oh, I've just received 60 gold when trying to sell the bottle of poison but the bottle kept being in the "sell" column so I took it back..

Are mushrooms stackable?

.. I entered the cave dungeon to solve the merchant quest.. oh man, I guess I'm at level 150 now.. I hope there's something like a town portal down there..
edit: I gave up, sorry but as it is, that dungeon is way boring and pointless

Thank you for the post!

You are right about the trading mechanism. I guess I need to implement some warning message to prevent players learn it the hard way :).

Mushrooms, as well as other food items, are not stackable. That's because they start to rot after some time and thus some 'per item' value must exist. I know it's inconvenient, but currently I have no idea how to solve this problem.

I'm going to improve the dungeon a little bit, but it exists basically to provide the player some place for training at the start. There will be a couple of more interesting dungeons in the future :).

An unlimited dungeon is a good thing but you should at least increase the difficulty curve (I'd say adding a new monster type every 2 or 3 levels instead of the actual 10).

It's a nice game to play: immediate, fast and clear (I enjoy to hack my way through dozens of slow dumb enemies leaving a lot of different corpses), but still too much incomplete to be interesting. Items should be added, problems fixed and the system should be made more understandable. I hope you keep working on it because it has potentials.

Certainly I will. Currently I'm working on improvement of the scripting language, but soon I'm going to return to adding more gameplay stuff.

What exactly do you mean by "more understandable system"?

0.7.6

Quote
I was very lazy this time. Out of 5 weeks since the previous release, more than 2 weeks were wasted (at least for Untitled's point of view, I was working on Fuge). Many features have been just shifted to the next version when I realized I am completely out of the schedule (well, I don't have any schedule, actually). The decision was to release immediately. The change log looked long enough:

    *alarms (when hero attacks some of the NPCs in town, other NPCs may respond to the attack)
    *a message is displayed when the hero's equipment gets significantly damaged
    *explosions can damage hero's equipment
    *poison/freezing/flame effects do not damage items on the ground
    *scrolls, when thrown or kicked, are no longer damaged or destroyed
    *drinking poisonous gas or exploding potion has side effects
    *multi-plane world (underground locations are no longer present on surface)
    *the cell viewed through the Look window can be changed with arrow keys
    *unvisited locations are darkened on the world map
    *unrevealed cells can no longer be examined with the 'Look' command
    *windows with a default edit box do not require setting focus to type in that edit box
    *changed importance level for some combat messages in the log
    *U compiler feature temporarily disabled
    *bugfix throwing/kicking a poisoned corpse no longer crashes the game
    *bugfix NPCs casting spells while being outside the screen no longer crash the game
    *bugfix kicking or throwing items towards boundaries of a location no longer crashes the game
    *bugfix all special bonuses given by unique items are correctly removed from hero when they throw the item away
    *bugfix chance to succeed in smithing or founding is calculated properly
    *bugfix unrevealed areas have proper (black) color in the automap
    *bugfix all kinds of dungeon floor appear correctly on the list in the editor

As of plans for the next version... I'm hoping to add more content at last. The gameplay isn't currently very interesting. When the player gets bored with random encounters in the wilderness and with the Random Dungeon (I know that almost nobody likes non-persistent dungeons), there's not much left to do... This is going to change in the next release.

But now - enjoy 0.7.6!

Nice set of improvements and I agree with your reasoning on keeping some aspects a bit secret so you can get something more cohesive going---keep at it!   8)
