A downloadable game for Windows
In Development (v0.79)
Tempest Tale is a young pegasus living just after the Great Chaos, when the world was rearranged. His village of pegasi, unicorns and earthbound has been cut off from the outside, and it's time for explorers to see what's out there!
canters centers around facing a series of challenges with several skill checks to overcome (a dangerous hike, a path to find, a monster to fight) and then coming home to boast at the tavern for fame and learning.
Inspirations include the tabletop RPG "Fate" and the card games "Space Pirate Amazon Ninja Catgirls" and "Ninja Burger", along with a particular cartoon. (Art/music credits are in-game.)
-Chapter 1 and most of 2 are playable, with 15 quests.
-Tavern screen allows party member recruitment, learning and fame.
-Buy and equip items.
-New roulette-like system for completing challenges without dice.
-Random quests (first pass).
-Some basic NPC interaction in town?
(This game is free, both since it'll be my first complete game rather than a mere "demo", and because it obviously uses content similar to a popular cartoon. I'm interested in making it open source if anyone would like that. My goal is to complete it, then proceed to a better and more original game using similar gameplay with some more ambitious improvements.)
