Title: Crimson Twilight (C64 CRPG)
Post by: aNdy/AL/Cosine on February 16, 2021, 22:10:28 PM
I'm a member of a C64 group called Arkanix Labs (as well as Cosine) and we're working on a large project called 'Crimson Twilight'.

Within the main RPG game itself, there are mini-games that give you the chance to boost your health, sillver hoard, food rations, magic ability and so on.  I've taken on the coding responsibility for these mini-games and here are a few in action...

Who had the idea?

Everyone in Arkanix Labs threw ideas into the 'pot' of what the mini-games should contain and how they should play and then I just ran with that with the overall design, graphics and code.

Wtf mate, this looks awesome. Why didn't I hear about this yet?

Little story. When I was about 13-14 years old, my best friend had an 800XL, and we were playing M.U.L.E. which was awesome, but sadly there was no port for the "bread box". So we started programming the whole thing...... Took forever, ambition vanished at some point, never finished. So basically the project is still alive.

@DeadVoivod:  get that conversion finished!

Thanks to everyone for the kind words.  Updates to the 'Crimson Twilight' project will be made on the Arkanix Labs forum here: http://www.arkanixlabs.com/forum/index.php

In the meantime, here are the game sprites (multicolour with hires overlay) I pixelled a few years ago.  Apologies for the small size, low quality and fake scanlines - these were added because someone tried ripping off the graphics a while back... :(
