After shifting our base from Rocksalt Games to Ogre Head Studio, we setup our development stuff and got back to what we love the most, developing games.
The question was, what will work on as our next project??
We love RPG and RTS along with medieval fantasy and mighty weapons, which is what Ogre Head Studio is all about! So we came up with this idea of prototyping a hack and slash rogue like game inspired by Indian theme and culture and await ASURA!!
We sat for 3 days straight and came up with the prototype of the initial idea that we brainstormed!
You can play the prototype here!
What is the game all about?!
Asura is a hack and slash game where you play as the legendary demon Asura as hordes of enemies come to challenge you in the battle arena. After obliterating each wave you will be rewarded with runes which you can forge in your weapon to make it mighty and epic!
Check out the character, hacking and slashing!
A screenshot of the prototype!
There are many kind of runes in the game, all elementals like Fire, Earth, Wind, Water, Soul etc. Depending on the rune you place on your weapon, the attributes will increase anc stack
The combination is limitless and its completely upon you to decide how you want your weapon to be forged. You can literally go crazy and unique on the kind of weapon you want to forge casting deadly spells on the way.
Your weapon will also look different with the kind of runes you place, for ex. if you have added lot of fire runes the appearance will be more like a molten weapon of doom (just a fancy word for a fire weapon)
Some runes like frost rune or cleave rune will let you cast passive skills like frost wave which will freeze the enemy or cleave damage with which you will deal damage to all enemies nearby
You can play the prototype to understand more about the game-play here.
Whats in the prototype?
The Prototype was created in 3 days and its our initial setup for the game! The current character in the games are 3d models of an old RPG prototype we were working on and is going to completely change, its just all place holder art!!
- Currently only one weapon in the game
- Select from Fire or Wind rune after completing each wave to increase the attribute
- Try surviving as many waves as possible
We have yet to think about the plot and many design aspects of the game and are working on it. In the mean time, if you have any idea or suggestions, please feel free to shoot them! We are currently brainstorming about the different kind of runes and its attributes.
More updates will follow soon as we march ahead!
(Please note that these are just WIP and will be polished as we move ahead in development!)
The blocking of level in 3DS max with occlusion render!
Day and night cycle of the arena in the game!
The arena in Unity engine.
Some initial concepts of the main protagonist. All of this will be scrapped since the character is going to be an Asura (a demon).
