Hey, hey, hey, it’s time for another BroQuest update!
As some of you know, it has been almost a year now since this iteration of BroQuest started. It’s hard to believe, really, but it has been that long. As a sort of celebration of that, and because we can, we took a working detour and developed a side project for the month of July. The title of this new thing we’re doing is Shoulderon Gaiden, and it is flash-based.
It is in a advanced playable state right now but is still missing a lot of content for an actual release. It should be ready for a beta some time in August at the earliest, so do keep an eye out! If you are starving for details, Shoulderon Gaiden is not a side scroller like our previous flash game, but it is related to Yorick’s Quest in a way. Shwig, our resident artist, is temporarily back from the military and is doing some cool artwork for Gaiden.
Expect the unexpected.
In terms of BroQuest itself, things have slowed down a lot because the game engine is still unfinished. Once Shoulderon Gaiden is out of the way we’ll see what happens. But that is reserved for a different blog post.
Concept Edit: This seems to be a bit misleading for some people. We didn’t stop work on BroQuest to work on this. We have some bottle-necks, one of them being the engine overhaul, that leave a few of us with free time. While we are waiting on those bottle-necks to be complete the rest of us are working on this flash game.
