Atlas Warriors, First Alpha Pre-Release

10/24/2014 04:57:00 pm Posted by Lachlan No comments
Tl;dr - First prerelease of Atlas Warriors is out, download from https://github.com/lkingsford/AtlasWarriors/releases. It's not quite finished yet.

I've opened up access to the first public pre-release of Atlas Warriors!

It is not finished yet, and shouldn't be considered to be so. There are still features missing (some minor, some glaring) and still some bugs that need fixing (again, some minor and some glaring). But it is playable, (theoretically) winnable and sometimes even fun.

But I really want to emphasise that it is still a work in progress. It still needs more stuff done before I will even consider moving it to Beta.

I finally wanted to get some feedback on how playable it is before starting to move on to attempting to balance the beast. So please - feedback away! Tell me what you like about my game, and tell me what is horribly wrong. There is an issue tracker for bugs and the like on https://github.com/lkingsford/AtlasWarriors/issues. Could you please report any minor or (far more importantly) major bugs that pop up?

You can download it from https://github.com/lkingsford/AtlasWarriors/releases. At the moment, I've only got a Windows 64 bit binary there (so if it doesn't work, that might be why).

You can also get the source from there. It's under an MIT license, so it's fairly open slather what you can do it. If you're running linux, you should be able to play it from source with Python 3.3 and Pygame. It's rl.py that contains the game proper.

If you'd like to support development financially, you can do so on https://pledgie.com/campaigns/27179 or by bitcoin (eek!) sent to 14PgnsEcgqgSrCFxTjVvczfu5Fyh85hjbU (barcode at the end of the post).

I don't think I've made it clear inside the game how some of the weapons work (although you should be able to figure it out fairly quickly). I recommend having a quick look at my previous post (http://www.nerdygentleman.com/2014/10/on-weapons.html) for a bit of a hint. You might also find the descriptions of the monsters on (http://www.nerdygentleman.com/2014/10/meet-monsters.html) to be helpful.

I'm not sure what else to say, so good luck (to both of us...)
