Lugdunon is a 2d multiplayer RPG / sandbox game that is reminiscent of the 16 bit console era. Lugdunon runs within your web browser, so no client download is needed. Lugdunon can also be played ‘on the go’ on mobile devices such as iPads and Android tablets. Players can engage in combat with each other or with NPCs, craft and trade items, empower their character with the advancement system, place and decorate in-game signs using the full-featured sign editor, and more! However, what is really interesting about Lugdunon is the ability to take the game and truly make it your own. With powerful in-game editors available to players who have been designated ‘Game Masters’ and the ability to run your own server, the sky is the limit! Currently, from within the game itself, Game Masters can create new crafting recipes, add and edit NPCs, paint the landscape using up to 16 terrain layers, raise and lower elevation to create cliffs and chasms, place items, and edit NPC spawn points.

Alpha 0.5.1 released. Small update that includes action bar tweaks, a way to quickly travel to a home point, charge or 'casting time' support for actions, a new quest, and bug fixes.

This release is smaller than usual, but serves its purpose in laying the groundwork for the next couple of updates to come.

Players can now quickly return to their 'home point' (currently defined as the family farm) by using a special item that is rewarded at the end of a new, simple quest given by Uncle Owain.

The action bar got some attention this release. An action button's keybind is now displayed just above the button, and the remaining time for a recharging action is also displayed in the top left corner of the button (in addition to the 'filling' animation that was already present).

Updated Action Bar

Actions can now specify a charge, or casting time. Actions with charge times are vulnerable to being interrupted while charging via movement, initiating another action, or by taking damage. The charging duration is represented on the character's unit frame as a thin yellow bar overlaying the health bar. It is also depicted on the action's button via a reverse filling animation and remaining charge time in the top left corner of the button.

Charged Actions

Also, a new underground tileset (ruins) has been put in place as well as a new resource node, in preparation for the spell crafting system that will be arriving in the next release.

The full changelog is listed below:

  • Action bar buttons now show a reverse filling animation (with countdown text) while an action is charging.
