NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEW CHARACTER! I don't want to reveal too much of the story at once, so I'll just announce the new character.
Cloud is from the web comic Sandra and Woo. He, like Trace and Peanut, will be one of the first companions you meet. Now having Cloud as a companion instead of Sandra was a complicated battle in my mind. I wanted to have Sandra as a companion because she's the main character, and there's not to many female companions planned so far. But she doesn't really have a way to defend herself (though you could say the same for Peanut and a few other planned characters). The MAIN REASON is because Cloud can defend himself AND allows me to make a bunch of Final Fantasy 7 references
*AHEM* Anyway, their world will be a balance of side quests and story arcs since there are both small stories and adventure ones. Cloud will specialize in attack and have a medium level of magic, much like Cloud from Final Fantasy (see what I did there). He will learn very basic magic spells like fire, ice, heal, ect. Like all allies, he will be able to travel with you to other worlds in the case you need to do a specific task that only he could do. Here are some screen shots of the game play with Cloud:
If you'd like to make any suggestions as to what I should add to the game, or suggestion as to any web comics I should read, please feel free to say so in the comments section bellow. The next character reveal might take awhile, I'll try to get it up within 2 weeks. Till then, TAKE CARE!
PS: look, I changed the magic system back to normal! Trace now has 2MP to start with BTW
PSS: Ummm, ignore the text at the side of the screen. That shows up when I test the game, those are just the default controls and will probably be changed later.
