Story

Whether you seek glory, power or peace, you have come to the land of Ashdeen.
The land that decades ago was the center of a great conflict between The imperium and the Orcish hordes.
When men first came to Ashdeen it belonged to Orcs, Goblins, Trolls and the greenskin like.
Humans came in search of fabled artifacts once belonging to an ancient race that lived below the ground.
Orcs were enraged that humans came to their lands claiming the artifacts for their own use. War was declared!
Fierce bloody battles were waged, but none could really claim to be the victor.
An uneasy peace Was signed between the humans and the greenskins, and now all the races of Ashdeen live in a fragile peace governed by orcs and humans.
Now the efforts are once again focused on excavating the ruins of the ancient civilization that had vanished so long ago.
Powerful artifacts, strange ruins and forgotten languages are discovered during the first expeditions.
Elves and a few other races fear that there is something sinister in the depths, and further expeditions should be stopped.
But who knows what will be found amongst the fragments of the past...

About the new engine

News


Hiya!

Sorry for being away form this project for a while. As some of you might know I said I would make a new engine for this game and post pictures once I have something else to show than different colored geometric shapes well today is the day.

So there still isn't too much to look at but the core engine is almost 100% done. You will also notice a lot new things compared to Remnants fragments of the past. This was supposed to be a new engine for remnants but its now forming to its own game.

As you can see most of the graphics are place holders, most of the stats, skills etc are missing so this will still take some time to be finished. Thou you can see thirst and hunger icons as well as more inventory space, inventory load, a lot better quickslots and more of them. Also character appearances can now be customized. ( also the dude is hiding in the bush as I haven't made any armor graphics yet )

I hope you liked it I will post something new once I get it further. Please leave a comment =)

No comments make me a sad Panda =(

This is pretty huge, looking very nice, 2d games with lots of content are awesome especially if they are a dungeon crawler with a open world to explore also.

Yes =) I will post the game here at some point it's engine is completely ready and I ripped most of the graphics from modern Castlevania games to keep it up to date and I drawed other graphic. Most of the areas are yet unfinished thou.
Oh and I fixed all the buggs from the original Simons quest game and modified the annoyances like dying in water at cities and most of the hints missing or translated wrong.
Many new things were added too but I wont reveal them yet =)

The camera angle remembers me a bit about Grand Theft Auto 1 PC game; you got a pretty huge list of interactivity for you game, which is something I do enjoy a lot(RPG fan here); hope I can achieve at least part of that interactivity at my game project. I'm feeling really tempted to try a demo of your game as soon as it appears to see some of the land of Ashdeen and their inhabitants.

Thanks for you comment. Im trying to release alpha test version2 at the end of this month. In alpha test version 1 there are few music reletad bugs that may crash the game but they are all fixed for the version 2. Perks should also atleast work for few levels in the version2.
I just managed to make Rogue game mode to work. The game mode allows you to play the game as a normal rogue like but offcourse fitted in to my engine.
