Re: *** CrazyBernie's Mega Fan Fiction Hangout! ***

They say that on cold nights in early April, under the shrouded moonlight that is filtered through the still bare maples trees, you can sometimes see the ghost of old man Bernie. He often appears to be sweeping, sometimes whistling a haunting tune that sounds both mournful and melancholy. Though, h...

Re: The State of the Basilisk 2018: A Year in Review

can't you use the Zodiac engine to throw together like, uh, a space tower defense game or something for a quick cash grab? :D The funny thing is, Zodiac was supposed to be a quick "cash grab" in terms of a short development cycle. The problem was that I couldn't cut corners; every time I playtested...

Re: What *exactly* are the differences between the classes?

Yep, that is correct! Although a class doesn't limit you in any way, it does "suggest" a career path via attribute shaping. For a real-world example, I was a skinny kid in high school- I could have played football but that was not what I was best suited for. Instead I played a lot of computer games ...

Re: The State of the Basilisk 2018: A Year in Review

Yep, I am the only full-time, regular paycheck employee, but I don't like to say "me" and "I" all the time. Other people, even fans, contribute to the creative process with ideas, suggestions, and donations. I work with other artists sometimes, or music composers. I may purchase an asset made by som...

Re: The State of the Basilisk 2018: A Year in Review

That said; Zodiac!!! No, seriously, you put it on the shelf since you got bored. Well, don't you ever become unbored? Just blow the dust off and finish it already!!! :D I was just playing this last week. It is still very fun despite it mostly just a partial game with large pieces missing. It's alwa...

The State of the Basilisk 2018: A Year in Review

It's that time of year again, where I get to sit back and reflect on what Basilisk has done and what we have coming up n the next year. This year I am disappointed that we are not talking about release dates, and sharing cool screenshots and a game trailer. Our big Sci-Fi RPG, code named "TRC", is l...

Re: Who wants a sneak peak at TRC?

I'd love to see a screenshot of that high-def isometric with Eschalon's textures, just so I have some eye candy to drool over. :) Unfortunately I don't have that running anymore (guess I should have grabbed a screenshot). But do you guys want to see what the game used to look like when it was in 3D...

Re: Who wants a sneak peak at TRC?

This sci-fi RPG is really unique in several aspects, in that nothing quite like it has been done before as far as I know... Will the change to isometric affect this uniqueness? A pity that you didn't go the Kickstarter route since you have a working demo and from what you've posted it was received ...

Re: Who wants a sneak peak at TRC?

I don't think you'll hear many Eschalon fans being upset about switching to an isometric engine ;) I'm glad to hear things are going well. I saw via RSS that you posted a similar message a couple of months ago but then quickly took it down. I was concerned that that was a bad sign. Well, it's been ...

Re: Who wants a sneak peak at TRC?

How did September and October go? Thanks for asking! It went very well. I had pages of suggestions to implement and technical issues to address. The game concept was very well received and everyone is excited to see the game move forward. There is a problem, however. TRC as a full 3D game is, unfor...
