FIGHT FOR YOUR MAGICAL FREEDOM!

HELLO GAMER! Are you ready to experience 20 levels packed full of action, adventure, romance, near death experiences and full on religious epiphanies?  If so, you may be ready for ARENA!


WHAT IS ARENA??

It's a game! A computer game, but it's also a moving painting!

What's that? Yes! Arena's graphics are hand painted!


WHAT'S IT ABOUT THEN?

Arena is about fighting to exist as your magical self.  

As you may know, for many ages, magic was banned in the land of Kazu. Our story begins when you are caught practicing magic in the wilds by a patrol of Kazu city guards. The king is disgusted by your magic and sentences you trial by combat. When you awake in your prison cell the next morning, you realize that you are about to engage in 20 levels full of action, adventure, romance, near death experiences and full on religious epiphanies. Your body is ready, you can feel the magic coursing through your finger tips, the question is gamer, are you ready?


STATE OF THE GAME!

As of 4/20/2019 Arena entered the alpha testing phase. 

On  6/2/2019 I released alpha version 0.5 which include leaderboards! I've had this game on private for a few months and now that leaderboards are in, I want as many people to test it as possible! :)

good video dude keep working

Thank you. Grinding' every day. :) 

Hey, not too sure if the issue is on my end but I was easily able to connect the server before and now I can not play the game at all for lack of connection at the beginning of the game

Oh no!!! I’m going to add an option to skip connection for the next update! Someone else had this problem. Right now it automatically connects to check for updates.

Heh, I had this. Skipped connection by hecking it. But let's wait when our developer release new update. 

Yes, music is great.

I've got this funny bug. It happend when I after loosing went to main menu, disabled anti-aliasing and started the game. Maybe anti-aliasing doesn't matter.

I am not sure, but I think there was a bug in the shop, when I bought 2 times in diffirent rounds the plants scroll. 

That’s the plant spell upgrade!! It makes them a little cheaper and you can spawn 4!

(1 edit)

No, that the point that I bought the first plant scroll (2 plants only) 2 times.  

Though, maybe I am really wrong, if spells upgrades are a bit random. Nvm it much though, should play it more.

haha, about that screenshot you posted, I did know that they do that sometimes, I just didn't think anyone would notice ;) thought I could patch it next time.

Clay, I must say, the music you've made for this game is absolutely charming! My favorite is the boss music ;)
If at any point you decide to release the soundtrack, just know that I would totally pay for it! Such stellar tracks. 

aw thank you!! :D you like the metal?? I will probably release the soundtrack with the final game :)

Im trying to run your game as quickly as possible (currently a 6.37). That run I got was because I got lighting upgrade as the upgrade offered after flame. Most times I have played this, fire is followed up with shield upgrade. I was wondering if you could tell me the probability of getting what upgrades after what amount of time. Also, is the time only in battle time or is it the entire run through including idle time like running around the arena and buying upgrades?

wow! i just saw your score on the leaderboards!! that's crazy! you're better than I am haha. and to answer your questions: 

1. time is only tracked during rounds. 

2. spells appear in the order: plant, fire, rocket, shield - with a 10% chance that you'll be offered an upgrade spell instead. 

the spells that have upgrades are lightning and the plant spell. you should do a speed run video!! :)

Just took it down again to even lower! I am really loving this game :) I will make a video of me trying to beat my PB. And thank you for that explanation, now I can reset the round quickly if I don't get the opening offers I want. (my new PB had an opening store of plant and lighting upgrade which is optimal for me)

4.63??? how the heck??? i'm so curious how you did it! 

I recorded a speed run with a finish time of 4.05m

Can I list you in the credits as a tester? If so, what name should I put down?

and thanks so much for playing! :D

Where did the gate music come from and WHERE can I get it 

what is the gate music??

i made the sound track! 

It keeps saying connecting to server. Maybe after 5 attempts make game run offline? Looks great game.

Oh shoot! We’re you able to get through? I haven’t heard of that happening yet, I’ll check out the server

Also, v0.8?

Yes, the v0.8. Can you make a small fix?

hmm. I just checked, and I logged in just fine. Are you on mac or windows?

Windows 7, 64bit. 

maybe reset your internet? I will add a timeout however

oh wow. first off, really like the game's combat and hits the right amount of difficulty. your art though is amazing! looks like i was in a miniature arena made of paper. love the art direction you are going with. the sound was also funny to hear. can't wait to see more updates with the game and keep coming back to it. keep up the great work! my partner and i played this game together and it was a blast.

oh my gosh!! this is the sweetest video :) I'm honored! Also, version 0.7 is up now!
