Thanks for releasing the binary to try out, I like the colors and those are some nice bookcases ;)

I just tried it out on VSS here at work. It's a cool idea John, a little strange to play this type of game (with 'reading signposts' and 'enter the building' as found in later 8bit and 16bit games) on the 5200!

 

It's cool how your character presses against the bookshelves prompting his on-screen thoughts to show up.

There will be quite a few changes in the design. Right now I'm working on the engine for the game. The maps and rooms you see now are just test rooms. It will be quite a different game when I'm done.

 

Ideas at this point would be great. I want my game to have the feel of a zelda game, but I want it to be different enough to not get in any trouble.

When I saw the title of this post, I thought it was a new Adventure game... 3D Adventure actually. Since I was thinking Z meant the Z buffer commonly referred to in modern 3D games....

 

So I'm not sure if Nintendo would have a fit over a game or title like that. It's not like you're equating yourself with Zelda... are you?

 

Still good though... I would like to give it a shot.

Well I Did change the name to Irata's Quest: Doomed Isle. That way I can have other installments later. The "Z" didn't lead to many story ideas for me. :)

It may be my perverse net connection, but the ROM image seems inaccessible (error 404)...

 

My bad--when I changed the name of the game from "Z-Adventure" to "Irata's Quest" I forgot to rename the binary and ZIP file. It's now fixed. :)
