BGMC 30 | Puppet's Quest

Gregory - the counselor of the Iluminia kingdom - always shows a proud bright in his eyes. With the finest knowledge and abilities, he is used to overcome the plans of the evil mage Boris, who wants to take over the kingdom over a long time. Today, however, Gregory is feeling strange… Wait, Gregory is feeling something? He should’ve not feel anything, Gregory is a puppet!

Suddenly, a strange glimpse from the same magic which gave him life shows that Boris was able to merge the world of Iluminia and the world of the puppet’s operator, transforming almost everyone into mindless monsters. The same glimpse shows that the puppet’s operator is being kept captive by Boris, and it seems he is the key to bring everything to normal again.

Will Gregory be able to save the operator and both worlds?

Puppet’s Quest is a simple hack and slash game. The goal is to bring to life the following mechanics:

  • Three types of sword enchantments (fire, ice and lightining, along with normal sword)
  • Simple combo based combat
  • Modular open world map
  • Dynamic minimap, following the game scenery layout
  • Random enemy spawning

I’ve started the project too late (at wednesday), but I think I’ll able to finish in time for the jam.

EDIT: I was able to (somewhat) finish it in time. It has all the listed mechanics, although most of them aren’t polished.

The game crashes in UPBGE 0.2.3 (2.79.1)

Thanks for reporting. This problem was reported to me by @peidolinobr before … I can only assure the compatibility with vanilla Blender 2.79. I will remove the ‘UPBGE compatibility’ in the first post.

UPDATE: Now multiple enemies can be hit with a single attack. This adds value to the gameplay, as lots of enemies couldn’t be defeated and the better strategy was to run to the goal. This feature should’ve been added while the jam was running, but whatever.

Congratulation Joel. Excelent project, models, mechanics and history.

Thank you! :wink:
I was not expecting good words about the models, but they are welcome as well. Haha
