91 is a role-playing game in a modern-day setting. It uses today's design sensibilities in a retro roguelike-like format.
You can play the Beta release by clicking "Play Beta" above. I'd love to hear your feedback! An account on this site lets you save your progress.
Hooray! After 3 years of development, the Beta release of 91 is now live! To celebrate, I ceremoniously changed the link above to say "Play Beta".
This means that now you can play all the way through the game, from start to finish. The ending is very dramatic :D
But development isn't over yet. As you play through the game, you may notice that the content gets more and more sparse as you go on. There is still plenty of content to fill in, dialog to write, numbers to tweak, skills to create, and more. These types of refinement will be my development tasks for 2013.
So check it out, and always get in touch if you have any ideas or find any bugs!
Just finished filling in content for an area that I wrote the map for a few months ago. It's a University, complete with book store, and a football stadium in which one of the most dangerous combat scenarios in the game happens.
Next I plan on making what will probably be the most "secret" dungeon. I haven't laid out the map yet, but I hope to make it the most crafty maze in the game.
Here is some of what I've worked on over the last 3 months:
* Added the city map
* Added fleeing AI (I may add this to more existing enemies)
* Fixed a bug with how enemy ammo is decremented
* Fixed a couple random AI bugs
* Added a separate inventory for key items, need to convert old quests to use this
* Code to transform NPCs into enemies based on events
* Can now level to 20
* Removed old debugging console, relying just on browser dev tools now
* Special death messages for bosses
* Code for items that remove effects
* New Colchester dungeon
* New underground dungeon
* New area south of the city
* Filled in Westbridge area
* Tweaks to a lot of enemies to work better with how armor is now calculated
There are 3 more dungeons to do, as well as the endgame. I want to finish all the main content, start-to-finish, even if I'm leaving it some of it kind of sparse. When the whole story is done I want to push an update to the demo, call it an Alpha release, then get to work fleshing out the content.
Here is the upcoming in-game world map:
This is part of the new "Progress" tab that will replace the "Console" tab. Here you will track your objective and key items. In the future I'd like the in-game map to show your current location and the location of your current objective, but I haven't done that yet.
I've also been working on boss fights, which will involve some new AI and enemy skills for unique challenges.
