My new game: Luminesca

Hi, all! Long time no see.  Laugh

In the decade since making Legion Saga I've now got a degree in game design and I've worked at EA for nearly a year. But I'm here to bring you news about a new game I'm working on called Luminesca. It's not exactly an RPG, more of a side-scrolling underwater game, but thought you might be interested in seeing what I'm up to these days anyway. Here's an introductory video which will say a lot more than words can:

[view the video on YouTube]

Soon I'll be launching a Kickstarter page to try and gain community funding for the project. I intend to work on this full time, for which I need money! More details will follow as soon as it's ready, but for now I will make a special promise for the old fans of Legion Saga:

If I reach my funding goal on Kickstarter I will answer LS3's unanswered question: who was the Hooded Man?

If you like what you see you can follow my progress in all these places:

this looks oh so very promising indeed XD

P.S: as the video progresses I see the visibility radius increases. do pearls or the powerups extend it?


The project still lives!

Thanks!

Yes, your visibility increases when you grab a planktid (the glowing blobs that power your esca, the light stalk on your head). Planktids function in a similar way to mushrooms in Super Mario Bros. You can take an extra hit and your abilities are more effective. They also play a part in the story.

Wow, Kamau! I remember Legion Saga way back in the day! You made this post only about a week ago, so I'm not too late in saying welcome back and I look forward to all your future projects!

Ah, I don't know, mystery is a mystery, The hooded man really didn't matter to me, though I annoyed the hell of the community about the reveal, but It left things open.  Hot But cool to see your working on something new.  Thumbs Up
