Nex



What is Nex ? A turn-based RPG taking place in a fantastic world. It is a hardcore/dark rpg game.
The game itself is progressing fast, I've been working on it for about 2 years now and it is slowly transforming into what I wished it to be. This game is not about graphics, its about good, intense gameplay and crazy replayability.
For now there's about 5 hours of gameplay but since I've spent so much time on the system, the hours of gameplay will rain soon enough ! And once its completed I would like it to be about 70 hours of gameplay minimum.
The strongest inspirations for my game are the Dark Souls series (obviously), Pokemon and I guess every Anime I've watched for the past 10 years.
If any scripter or artist is interested in the project please pm me, if you are none of those things but wish to contact me to comment on my game you are highly welcomed to do so !

Is the story any good ? In Nex you play Totems, which are a species able to connect with Animas (Spirit Animals). Each Totem has a particular Anima; Rat, Lion, Boar, Honey Badger. There are only examples of the diversity of the character range. For now the game contains 31 playable characters each with a unique set of skills, masteries and backstories (which ranges from boxing champion to simple cheese store owner). Totems are going extinct and may it be for your personnal benefit or for the greater good, you must reclaim all 7 Kingdoms (Sun, Cloud, Sand, Sea, North, Thundering, Night). In each Kingdom reigns a King or Queen and you must defeat them in order to complete the game. To reach these Queens and Kings you must first defeat their Champions. As for the characters backstories it will be revealed through flashbacks, finding certain spots will reveal additional information on each character.

Character design much ? I do like character design and it is clear in Nex. Right at the start of your quest you are allowed to choose any of the 31 current characters (Ultimately there will be 155). Since describing all of them would be crazy, let's be iiiiinnnsaaaannne !

2.Saving; Save points are scarce in Nex. The first one is located in the starting area (the catacombs) and the others are located in dangerous zones but the player will need to find special items hidden across the kingdoms to unlock the save points !

3.Crafting; A unique crafting system allows the player to farm Champions artefacts ! The player has to eliminate each spirits in a very specific way to obtain crafting materials.

4.Flashbacks; Has mentionned before each character possess a unique backstory which will be revealed by observing flashbacks from your character's past life.

5.Immortality; The player never dies, it returns at the catacombs everytime the party wipes. Killing enemies reward the player with ''Memories'', granting it experience rate bonuses and boosting all stats. Memories are lost when the party wipes.
