[0.8.5|Endless|16|YASD] Very avoidable death
« on: January 12, 2020, 10:19 »

I still play this game once in a while, and this run was going really well, up until I died very suddenly, in what I'm sure was a very avoidable way.  I guess I neglected to check my hit points; I thought they were at 15, and I was berserk, so I should have been taking reduced damage, so I was not expecting to get killed by a Wraith, but I guess my hp were lower than I thought.  I had four Fairydust, so there was no reason not to heal myself; I was just careless.  :(

Oh well...  I decided it was good enough to post anyway.  :)

The game needs stronger scaling of difficulty :P

Judging by the other active thread today, it's quite difficult enough - it's just that when Tormuse plays things, they look a lot easier than they actually are =P

Balancing for Tormuse is not balancing for everyone else - something I'll have to be sure to keep in mind as my own current project approaches a release-ready state.

Edit: Decided I'd try to play Berserk! myself - never played before - and the download links seem to be failing for me(I was looking at the Beta Board, the two WIP threads). Is there a better place to get it?

Yeah, Scavengers can be troublesome.  :)  I wrote a mini guide for BerserkRL a while back that might help you out.  It's a game with unique gameplay that has it's own interesting set of challenges.

Reminds me that I haven't played Viridian Abyss in a while.  Maybe I'll have another go at that.  :)

I'll have to take a look at that guide then - I am currently quite woefully underprepared for Berserk!, lol.

*Sereg mentions having something release worthy*

Nothing that will resemble a game for a long time yet, though I'll probably have something playable, in the sense that you'll be able to walk around and not much else, pretty shortly*. If you're interested in that just as sort of a snapshot of progress, I can send you a download link via pm, but I probably won't be posting an official development thread until I have something significantly more substantial, which may be a few months or more.

*assuming the Engine I've designed for it works as intended and doesn't take weeks to sort out in and of itself...

Reminds me that I haven't played Viridian Abyss in a while.  Maybe I'll have another go at that.  :)

It's still as unpolished as I left it, but it is a complete game in some sense of the word =P I'll admit I've fired it up myself once or twice while working on the new one... but I definitely plan to offer a much more complete experience next time ;) Still, I'd be interested to see if you (or anyone else) can discover the alternate ending...
