After 9 months of hard work, we are pleased to announce the full release of Lodestone2d Chapter 1!
General Description:Lodestone is a 2-dimensional RPG currently in construction by university students. The impetus for this project was a common love for video games and more specifically Roleplaying games. Using what tools we have available, our mission is to create a vibrant, rich, and immersive video game.
We are planning to create a six-chapter game, with each chapter delivering 3-4 hours of gameplay. To those who enjoy a homegrown RPG experience, Lodestone2d awaits.
Chapter's 1 Plot:
In Chapter 1 you will begin Lodestone in an army camp, and as a member of a special unit that is being deployed into a hostile city. This is to be your last mission before you are allowed to return home to his love, but things end badly and you are forced to escape. This starts your journey. From this point on you will have to struggle across dangerous terrains and deceiving puzzles, battle through technologically advanced enemy soldiers, gain and lose friendships and encounter unique and deadly monsters.Characters:
Traeus is a Myrian noble sent to war by the newly-ascended king Jecter so that he can marry Meia. Jecter started this war for an unknown reason, and rumors abound that it was simply to boost his own ego. As Jecter is not really liked in the kingdom, he could not have ordered Traeus killed without his own position being precariously jeopardized. Traeus has trained in the art of combat in the court, but has no real combat experience. To this end he makes an average soldier from the beginning of the game, but is elevated to the rank of corporal because of his rank at court.
Meia is another noble from the Myrian court. She is betrothed to Traeus and will marry him when he returns from war. She is missing in the beginning part of the game except in dreams and memories. She will appear later in the game.
Gabriel is a lone fighter who has a vendetta against the Glaucians and feels betrayed by his homeland
