Thank you everyone for the great feedback and Constructive Criticism. This has been a very fun game jam full of amazing projects both from first timers and long time developers. If there were to be another I would not hesitate to come back again. I have gone over the feedback both positive and constructive (negative in a good way) and I have solutions for the future of Slime Guardian.
The most common negative is how slow the pace of the battle system is, I agree its super slow.
I have three solutions for this.
3 Second Turns
I have a way to shorten turns to 3 seconds by animating the attack while also doing the attack instead of doing them separately. The only exception are critical attacks that will have a few extra seconds in a slow motion effect.
Optional fast Turns
Some people may think this system is too fast so I will make it toggle-able between four options.
Option 1 Jam Speed aka Slow - This will keep the speed of the jam
Option 2 Normal Speed aka Normal - This will be faster but slower than fast
Option 3 3 Second Turns aka Fast - This is the 3 Second Turn option
Option 4 0 Second Turns aka Instant - No Animations just a damage effect.
Turn Pause Toggle
There will be two options, if Turn pause is checked (checked by default you will need to press a button to go to the next turn, the other option will make turns happen one after the other with no pause.
Lack of Battles
It is true only one battle exists but do no worry as there will be more, in fact I will start the game from nothing and focus on the battle mechanics first, including player, allies, enemies and all sorts
People like the graphics that is one of the main comments, of course I only had time to make a limbless character with barely any animation, however as you can see from the picture he will have arms, legs, a neck, new hair and more.
No one said anything about him being called just Hero however in the final game you will have the option to name the hero, even change the characters gender as well.
Many New Features
Hero is not the only Human that stands up for slimes, Meet Annabal the Slime Breeder. When she was little her house was set on fire, with no way out and no hope a miracle occurred, A lava slime who happened to secretly be living in the house consumed the flames and smoke around her keeping her safe, to this day it has been her loyal protector (Right slime on the picture) it was named Blaise.
