Wolf Spirit - Trials of the wolf clan

Post by vnsbr » Wed Feb 03, 2021 7:41 pm

Hello all!

We have been working on a new NES platformer called Wolf Spirit, it will be divided in some episodes, and the first one is called "Wolf Spirit - Trials of the wolf clan", and is the one we are working on for the competition.



The first episode will be set in a native american theme, each episode is expected to have it own narrative, background theme, ambiance etc we also want to have some changes in gameplay in some of them. But since it is very early in development it is not set in stone yet ;)



I was aiming for NROM for this competition, but might expand a bit to UNROM 64 because we are coming close already.

Team:
zollio - Artist/Game Design
Valdir Salgueiro - Code
Tuï - Music



thank you!

================================== ROM ================================

After countless days of hard work, we present our entry!

thanks man! credits goes for zolio for bringing the world together, im just the coder :lol:

here is one possible skill, we are not sure if it will be in the 1st trial or other stages because of the gameplay we are looking for, but really cool nonetheless :D

Oo! is that a dash? I love the dash mechanic. props!

The NES game Nebs and Debs introduced me to it last year.

Just curious. A wolf with a dash move. Is it a reference/homage to Altered Beast?

We ended up not using the dash, but replaced it with something else that will hopefully be more interesting to the thematic :D

I love your sprites/tilesets! One of the best homebrew graphics I've seen on NES, good job!

Thanks! I really want to make the full game after the competition, i think it has a lot of potential and the demo is coming up quite well too :)

Edit----

We went internal testing and fixed a lot of balancing issues. The game was too hard, but not in good terms more likely unfair. We did some changes to make it more fair while keeping it fun.

We want to try and squeeze at least one more enemy, totalling up 6 and probably make some tweaks to the existing ones. It is really close to deadline but i think adding one more will be cool if we can make it :) also missing ending screens and possible music tweaks!

We went for a final map a bit different from the first ones, it will be familiar to those who played SMB but with a little twist to it!

I like Attack2 the best, so I chose that one. attack1 (last animation) second-best, attack3 (first animation) least/not very much
