Started a bit late on this since I didn't really know about it's existence till yesterday. But still it'll be a nice challenge to make an rpg.
So I didn't have much of an idea of what to do until I saw this spritesheet over at opengameart. And I gotta say I really really liked it. So I'm going to try to do it justice.
I still haven't decided on a story or anything like that, but I do have a simple WASD moving character.
I have simple textboxes going on when you click on a sign with your cursor. Nothing too fancy.
As for the battle system, looking at the icons that were in the sprite sheet I decided to do like a simple rock paper scissors gameplay style. The winner of the game gets to do their selected action of either Attacking, Defending, or Healing. Still haven't fully programmed a workable fighting system but I feel like I'm halfway done.
