Thank you, and have fun!Features
Kazeko and the Midnight Guild is an action/stealth game. All in-game systems (stealth, lockpicking, combat, items/equipment) have been developed by myself, with a combination of scripting and eventing. K&MG incorporates some light RPG elements. You will not gain experience points or level, but you will be able to tweak your stats (attack, health, & speed) with different equipment (the equipment you run into in Kazeko 1 is slim, but there's a good selection in Kazeko 2). By default, you will have low attack and health, but high speed. You can carry heavy arms or wear heavy equipment to increase your attack and/or health, but at the expense of your in-game movement speed. Note that Kazeko will never be overly strong. No matter how good your equipment is, or how well you understand my combat system, stealth should always be your top priority.The Remake
AKA "Why the heck did you remake K&MG1 instead of working on Kazeko 2?!"
This is the remake of the original Kazeko and the Midnight Guild
. Created on a slightly modified version of what I like to call, "the Kazeko 2 engine"
, the remake is a way for me to have Kazeko 2's gameplay get reviewed. I'd like to know which features players enjoy, which ones they don't, and if I should implement more, or different, features. Here are a few changes I made when developing the improved Kazeko 2 systems:1.
Guards can no longer see through collisions so you can take cover behind a wall or some other obstacle.2.
Guards generally don't make 180 degree turns. Guards will no longer do a full 180 just as you are running behind them!3.
Guards can figure out how to get around obstacles (large structures, even) instead of running directly into them.4.
Homemade combat system. Loosely based on Paper-Rock-Scissors, my combat system is fast paced and high risk!5.
Action & turn-based systems. While the Kazeko 2 engine is mostly action gameplay, during certain events, such as combat and lockpicking, the game switches to a turn-based system where every action you make allows 3 seconds to pass.Kazeko &
- The patrons of the the Midnight Pub meet every night for a pint of ale. The Midnight Pub might seem like an ordinary pub, but when the clock strikes midnight, the patrons leave their sanctuary and run across the city, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, for they are Medaeva's guild of thieves, The Midnight Guild
! The cheerful, young, and talented ex-ninja, Kazeko
, owes The Midnight Guild a favor. The Midnight Guild calls upon her to help with their largest heist yet: to steal the Crown of the Crimson Bloodline! The dedicated master thief of The Midnight Guild, Quinne
, is partnered with Kazeko for the mission. The powerful and proud, Macys
, with his guards and soldiers, patrols the chambers of The Crimson Castle
, an old castle where the Crown is on display.Special Thanks
Thanks to all those who play! Double thanks to those who left feedback! Kazeko Sprite
