Valchion is a action RPG with retro graphics and simple mechanics. It features bright, GameBoy Color-styled visuals, and a (hopefully) memorable soundtrack. It should be released for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It's also being made with the Blender Game Engine, which features fast game creation and no time spent exporting to an external engine.

Hello!

It's been quite awhile since my last update here, and devlog video on my YouTube channel. After some time thinking about it, I've decided to stop development on Valchion for the time being; I just wasn't making progress and wasn't doing the idea I have for Valchion justice.

It's unfortunate, and I'm sorry to pause development after literally years working on this thing, but I don't think I should finish it just because I started it, but rather because it's going to be a good game. If the game's bad, it's better to stop development on it, even restart if it has potential, rather than forcing the game out and having a failure on your hands. I hope to work on it in the future and develop it into something really cool.

 Anyway, thanks so much for following me on this journey of game development. I certainly hope to work harder on more projects that are fun and interesting to play.

Thanks! Hopefully I can merge that solid old-school quality with newer gameplay and ideas.

Thanks a lot. I don't think this and Sparky are even in the same neighborhood of Overgrowth, but that means a lot. :)

Maybe not in scale, however this is really interesting to me as a hobby programmer because you give more depth and you are making visible progress. keep it up, This and sparky are the most fun to follow, their art is fun, and loud and holds your interest.

So how does that work for collision detection? Because the plane is paper thin does it have negative effects on 3D collision models? Or do you apply a custom bounding box that has depth.

I have a custom collision shape - it's a sphere. So even though you see a flat sprite, it takes up 3D space.
