Project is postponed indefinitely. The stresses of everyday life is getting to be too much to handle, and this is too large a project to work on with no fruition. I'm sorry...
NO, I'm not giving out hackfiles.
NO, you can't finish what I started.
NO, you can't have my sprites/music/tilesets.
YES, I'll leave the thread up.
DRAGONFLY'S ISLAND QUEST
One night, a young fearsome crocodile named Luca had a dream after countless nights of nightmares. In his dream, a giant dragonfly greeted him. It warned him of great, incalculable forces threatening to plague the island chain he (as well as the dragonfly itself, at one point) calls home. Not even the dragonfly knows exactly what's in store. With the help of the dragonfly, and even the spirit of the island's guardian, Luca must journey through the depths of the island chain just to find out what's going on. He feels it in his very blood, that the dastardly deeds of Dinosaur Land would be as child's play.
Over a short time, new and strange creatures have taken over the once peaceful island.
In the dream, the dragonfly hands Luca a letter and warns him not to open it until he wakes up. Bemused, the crocodile agrees and suddenly wakes up with a gasp.
In his hand is a letter... from the Dragonfly. Along with it are two tickets to a sky liner bound for... "Dragonfly Island"... That place is but a short swim away, though. Why would he need to take a ship over there?
Well... that dragonfly seemed pretty important, so off he goes! Let's hope nothing goes wrong...
The hack features Luca (Which is Italian for Luke) as the one and only player. In early responses you see him mistakenly referred to as "her", but that's OK. In their defense, I hadn't specified his gender.
"Why does he wear an animal skull on his face, and what happened to his eyes?" -- Well, let's just say there's a reason he's called a *fearsome* crocodile.
There are worlds, but they are not numbered. Why is this? I wanted to give the hack more of an RPG feel, where the player isn't limited to just one path. The worlds do have names, though! These worlds, in no particular order are (Some come with with SPCs so you can feel the ambiance!)
The OW is just "The Island"
El Cielo --Spanish for "The Sky"
Tea Tree Woods (TO BE DECIDED)
The Wreckage - Made my own port, will release soon!
I-Namor Desert (8 Eyes-Egypt, ported by Gamma V)
Bottom of the Ocean (TO BE DECIDED)
The Forest (TO BE DECIDED)
There you have it, the story in a nutshell.
As I update, I'll be leaving up whatever screenshots I uploaded in the past, so I(and you) can compare how I was then to how I am now.
