The story behind the episode one of the game is that long ago a group of powerful mages created this world to be a haven for mages and a bridge between the many worlds in existence. They created a generator underground below the nexus that serves as the heart of this artificial world. This generator creates and maintains the magical barrier protecting the world from the void that contains it and is surrounded by a smaller barrier to prevent unauthorised access. The generator draws on the key locations connected to the nexus to help stabilize and maintain the shield. One day two people with the potential to become powerful mages arrive in this world with no memory. The two meet the librarian of the arcane library of the nexus and are told that a powerful wizard plans to take the outer shield down destroying the nexus and the magical world leaving only himself and the core with its shield intact and maintained serving as his base of operations as he sets about asserting dominance over the many worlds of existence. You are the one that will protect this land or potentially destroy it.
There are going to be random encounters on the overworld and inside the dungeons there are going to be enemied that when you run into it starts the combat, like in Lufia and similar rpgs. I'll try to make time to work on this as often as possible and I'll try to keep this thread updated often.
Hopefully it won't be too long until I have an alpha release ready.
Okay I have a pre-alpha release ready, it shows the basics of the combat system and a few simple spells. For the alpha release it's going to have the nexus at least mostly completed and the tutorial will be polished up a bit. The pre-aplha is more to show the concepts of the spells and give an indication of how the tutorial will go. Feedback and constructive criticism is appreciated.
