Re: Is Basilisk Games dead?

If I ever have to close the studio, I would announce it. I wouldn't leave anyone wondering. And yes, RPGs are in our blood and I'll always be working on something related to role-playing. I don't think I will ever feel complete until this sci-fi RPG gets released, even if it takes 10 more years. And...

Re: Is Basilisk Games dead?

Dead?? Nope! :D We're here. We're working. After converting from BlitzMax to Unity, and moving from a 2D isometric engine to a 3D engine, and now back to a hybrid 2D/3D engine, it's been taking much, much longer to make any progress. RPGs are giant and require a lot of design work. Also, we've been ...

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: Back from being banned

Glad to have you back! Apologies for the ban, but it makes sense that it was through a VPN. We sometimes have to block entire subnets of IP addresses because we start getting bombarded.
