Twisted Guardian is a ARPG game based in the fictional world of Nether.

Story

You, the lone hero find yourself inside a dungeon cell with the cell door ajar. On the cell door you find a note which reads "I have opened the cell for you. How you get out of here is up to you. My debt is settled. G. i. R.". You have no recollection of what brought you here, this note is the only thing connecting you to your past. A high ptiched human scream echos down the hallways. No time now to ponder the past, you head for a near by chest in the hopes of finding something that can help you get out of this dungeon...

Gameplay

In Twisted Guardian you start by creating a new customized character, choosing a set of starting skills and setting your starting attributes. Through out the world you will gain experience, find wondrous items and discover new and exciting skills which will help you survive the many dangers you will encounter. The game is based on a classless system in which you decide what skills you want to use and which ones you want to discard, ultimately resulting in a character that is unique to your play style.

Cool effects so far, I think you should add some kind of reaction of the enemies when they are shot by the fire but I can see that this is still very early development stage. Anyway, looks cool, like where you are going with this :)

Thanks!
Spell effects on enemies and specialized reactions are definitely on the todo list. :)
