Crayon Chronicles (now at v1.0.5) $
« on: May 19, 2013, 12:06:02 PM »

Free Demo available, available Dev Direct for $3
Their successful Kickstarter:
Steam Greenlight:

    -On Windows PC NOW! (and eventually Xbox Live Indie Games)

Crayon Chronicles has a relatively short (2-4 hours per play-through) but action-packed RPG experience that randomly generates the level layouts each time you play.

You are encouraged to play through the game more than once thanks to the random nature of the environment layouts, but also because we keep track of the interesting facts about each play-through (in our newfangled "Heroic Hallitorium") so you can compare your adventures to each other as well as to the adventures of your friends.

Crayon Chronicles offers:

    50+ enemy creatures
    200+ items and gear to find
    13 different environments to explore
    Saving and continuing (if you stay alive)

Your character will be able to carry:

    A helmet
    A main weapon
    An off-hand weapon (unused when you have a two-handed weapon equipped)
    A ranged weapon (recharges shots as you use melee attacks)
    A skill power (recharges as you defeat enemies)
    4 consumable item slots

The helmet, armor, main weapon, and off-hand weapon will all visually update on your character's avatar in-game.

Your story:

As the story goes, your friends have been kidnapped (tragic, I know), but as it so happens, you are brave enough to attempt their rescue. With help from a "stranger" you are soon set on the path to their salvation from the despicable Lord of the Swampyards, Stratolustrious Von Danderbeak the 37th (or Strato for short, his name is a mouth-full). If you succeed in rescuing your friends and bringing down the Swampyard Tyrant, then glory, satisfaction, and maybe a nap await you.

How do you play Crayon Chronicles?

On PC you can play using:

    An Xbox 360 gamepad  (A-Button to Move & Attack, B-Button to Pick Up Items)
    The mouse only  (Left Mouse to Move & Attack, Right Mouse to Pick Up Items)
    The mouse and keyboard

Latest changes:

Version 1.0.5
        Added "-width [pixels]" command line option for the game's shortcut to adjust window size. (ex: -width 1280)
        Made the desktop shortcut created during installation editable.
        Potentially fixed the crash caused during SetViewport.
    Version 1.0.4
        Fix for giant font bug caused by number format OS settings.
        Fix for crash when parsing numbers also caused by number format OS settings.
        Fixed a minor bug in chapter 3 where fog would show up inside a building when there should have been no fog.

    Version 1.0.3
        First version released to public.

Looks to be very polished and positively shining with charm and character.   8)
