Epic of Serinor: Dawnshadow Coming Soon!

Thanks everybody! It's good to hear from so many familiar names. Because honestly, even I'm surprised a new Verge game is coming out. But I've always wanted to make a game, and after all these years, Verge was the system I knew well enough to make that happen.

Serinor has changed a lot over the years. Dawnshadow happens in the same world, but it has a much narrower scope than its predecessor. Which I'd like to go back to someday. But this one had to be something I could do on my own.

I'd be happy to share the changes I made to the engine! I'm not sure how to make that happen, necessarily. And I don't know that the way I did it is the best way to do it. (I'm a writer, not a programmer. ) Dawnshadow essentially has two binaries: a Steam one and a DRM-free one. But it works!

Realistically, Verge needs some updates before I'd use it again for a major project. Which makes me sad. I love Verge, and I don't want to learn a new system. Verge is very good at what it was built to do, but 10-15 years later, licensing and expectations have changed. If it had a free sound engine and I could publish to platforms other than PC, it might be different.

I'm mostly rambling now, but I'm stuck in the airport, and my flight is delayed three hours.

Edit:
And apparently that's the publish button on mobile! Who knew? Anyway, Dawnshadow goes live two weeks from today. Make sure to grab a copy! (I will never like marketing.)

A place to talk about whatever you want

Hi! What's everyone up to these days?

Hi guys,

I just started freshman year of college (ME-CS double major [I would have done just ME but thanks to Verge I'm studying CS too]). The adjustment to college has been a long one, but with semester 1 almost done I'm looking forward to abusing my vacation time by working on a Java game my friends and I are developing and I have an idea for a new Verge game too! I also am trying to learn some better HTML/CSS/Javascript to make my website a little more professional looking.

I'm still playing around with the story a bit, but Kildorf's Simple Quest inspired me to keep it short and sweet. I guess this'll be a test of my not-so-great-but-developing pixel art skills too.

Anyways, it's great to see this place alive again. Here's to finishing projects!
