Tomes of Mephistopheles gameplay

By - | Views: 14,119
So Alex from Kot-In-Action has finally given us a sort of demo trailer for some gameplay of what will become Tomes of Mephistopheles. It looks interesting and as usual from Kot-In-Action the graphics are already looking rather good.

I have asked how the player will get the bombs in the game, will be interesting to see if it uses a crafting system or if it's buying/selling from dungeon dwelling venders or what. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Bomberman 3D? :)

Hmm.. The video doesn't show up here :/

Initially, in alpha, we will give bombs to player. As development goes on, we will add crafting system for several pieces of gear. Most likely the ordinary bombs can be found by looting chests and picking 'em up from the dead enemies.

I don't understand why people think breaching the walls is a main mechanics of the game :)

Well until they see more it's all they have seen remember of actual gameplay, I can't wait to see the finished game.

It's certainly more interesting than the previous video on deformable walls. I guess I'm still more interested in what will become of the map generator and the ability to randomly generate interesting (perhaps infinite) levels in that kind of engine.

I am not really following you :/

It already can generate infinite dungeons. It's just a matter of how powerful you PC is and how long are you willing to wait for it to finish the job. Basically, the game will come with pre-generated dungeons. Otherwise I can already hear "why does it take time to generate the dungeons?!" If you wish to play a new dungeon, you just generate one and play it.

I just like the replayability a game (like an RPG) can have with randomly generated content. I haven't seen many first good looking first person game with randomly generated maps. That and the deformations in the first video (with the rainbow bomb) did not look as impressive as this latest video. So I was more excited by the map generation. Sounds like I may have made a bad assumption about how it would be used though.

Also, I may be bias since I had a pen-and-paper RPG campaign once that had sprawling subterranean maps with with villages spread through out them. The ability to generate that kind of world and the ability to create connecting tunnels between adjacent areas just seems interesting to me.

I guess one thing I meant to imply but didn't say clearly, the tunneling in this video looks pretty good.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY ...ehm, sorry, what I meant to say was is there a way to preorder yet? Like with SS2?

Thanks :)

Basically think of Daggerfall or Diablo when thinking of randomly generated dungeons. Plus, if it works well, same on the surface - valleys, hills, lakes, villages, etc. (no terrain damage though).

Right now we are debating whether to supply pre-generated dungeons so player doesn't have to wait for the first game to be generated (if you start new game, it will generate a new dungeon) or supply no dungeons and every single user will have totally random dungeon on their first launch.

The "pretty" factor is determined by the amount of art we have. Since the game is made by only 2 people, don't expect all the cool architecture to appear at once. The first dungeons are gonna be pretty much what you see on the video with various decorations and slightly different wall types, and different doors. As people vouch for the game with their dollars, we will add more and more content. That's what alpha funding mean. Basic core gameplay, minimum art assets, lower price tag. The more people buy it the better art and more features game gets.

We can open pre-orders now, but since the game is very close to be actually played, we want to add more stuff and release it under alpha funding model. This way people get it and can play alpha right away. Plus, as we add more stuff, you would just download update and continue enjoying it :)

So end of January is when we want to release first alpha.
