This is a non profit fangame purely made for the love of the franchise
The game is currently in pre-alpha; mechanics are being implemented and UI is being coded so there is no story at the moment. A story is currently being written.
Here's some screenshots of current progress; I'll update them as development progresses and upload some gameplay videos to YouTube.
These are a list of features that I hope to implement into the final product. Some may have already been done but I'll come back to this list to confirm what has and what hasn't at a later time.
A completely new single player story with a cast of characters
Unique Skill Trees for each character (weapons & other types)
DQ11 battle equations (e.g. damage/skills/stats are built like DQ11)
Gamepad and Keyboard support
Gamepad and Keyboard configuration (for PS/XBOX/Switch controllers)
Familiar & new items/weapons/skills
Quest system similar to DQ11s
Options menu to change text speed/controls
Party formation change
Choose the battle theme for generic encounters (DQ1 -> 11)
Ability to dual wield (weapons of the same type) & use two-handed weapons (swords, axes, boomerangs, shields)
The resolution of the game is 480x270 which is a significant increase when compared to the original SNES games.
The window resolution is by default x3 times bigger, meaning the window is 1440x810. When the game is in fullscreen it fits nicely into 1920x1080 monitors. Other monitors will work fine but may display the game with black bars on the side. I will implement the possibility to change the window size to 480x270 (x1), 960x540 (x2), 1440x810 (x3 default) and some bigger.
Just me! If you are interested in helping me out, let me know on here or on Discord: NotADev#9389. Currently I am need of artists.
