I think I’ve been sitting on this for too long, and figured I might as well just release it. People who were at Evo West last year had a small glimpse of this game, and it’s changed quite a bit since then.
Dreamscape was a game I made two years ago with a couple of my friends from Carnegie Mellon’s Game Creation Society. The original idea was a super customizable fighter, something like CVS2’s groove edit mode, but at the same time balanced between all of the options that you chose. Of course, we never really got that far, and ended up only having three customizable options (meter bonus, roll/dash, and parry type).
The art style is akin to Rumble Fish, since without an army of sprite artists I don’t think there’s any other way to do it and maintain some resemblance of 2D-ness.
At this point, I probably won’t be updating the game anymore (onto bigger and better projects!), but if anybody’s crazy enough to attempt to balance or improve this game, it’s pretty easy to mod. There’s a little bit of documentation, but for the most part once you open up a character data file, it’s pretty self explanatory.
We used C++/OpenGL/SDL to make this game, so it should be portable to any platform. But once again, I’m currently not looking to revive a 2-year old project, so it is Windows only at the moment.
Hope you have fun!
