You can definitely run around like a traditional rpg. Final fantasy is a big inspiration for the game! You can even walk around to find wild monsters!

Iíll definitely keep my eye on this one .
There are tons of special abilities. You can protect someone to make them not take any damage. You can burn, stun, poison, and even haunt enemies. You can raise your player's stats, and of course heal too! Heres a demo of one of the battles!

Players can pick up items, equip them, and have the itemís stats be added to their characterís stats! I have also added chests to the overworld that contain powerful equipment! This will be primary way to pick up relic items!

You can click on any item slot in the unit page, and you will be presented with a list of equippable items. Just click on the item you want and it will be equipped! Players have 5 different equipment slots to put gear into: helm, cloak, armor, relic, and weapon! Helms and armor fall into three categories: heavy, medium, and light. Each class can only equip heavy, medium, or light armor. Heavy armor has a high defense rating, and low (if any) resistance. Similarly, light armor has low defense and high resistance. Medium armor has a relatively even amount of defense and resistance, favoring defense at higher levels. To remind you, defense reduces the damage taken by normal attacks, while resistance lowers the damage taken by elemental attacks. Similar to armor and helms, each class can only equip a few types of weapons. Whether they are swords, axes, maces, staves, bows or even spears.



Players will be able to really customize their characters by their characters based on which cloaks and relics they select. Cloaks can have any type of stat on them and do not necessarily have defense or resistance on them! Relics usually do not have stats, but rather effects! These effects could be extra critical strike, extra damage, piercing to ignore a portion of enemy defense or resistance, the ability to self revive in combat, resistance to certain elements, and much much more! The possibilities are endless and I want the players to enjoy the experience of discovering them! Iíve also added an inventory screen so you can view all the items you have and even filter by the type of item!



Players can buy and sell items from the blacksmith shop as well! This is helpful for getting some basic starter gear as well as selling some old gear for more potions! Iíll look to add in some more fun gear later on!



You can also buy potions from the alchemist shop! You just walk over and click yes or no! (You canít buy it if you donít have enough gold) these potions are now fully functional in combat also!

New Dungeon, Map, and Trial

I havenít posted in a while but I have been quite busy with a whole bunch of new stuff for Pixelot!

Rangerís Trial - Pixelot will feature several trials that you need to complete to progress the story. These trials are very similar to gyms in Pokťmon in which you battle a series of enemies culminating in a final battle with a more powerful enemy. Alike to how gyms in Pokťmon are based on types, trials in Pixelot are based on the class of enemy. In the rangers trial you will climb a tower defeating several rangers before battling against Austin, the head ranger in Luma. After (a really cool boss cutscenes above) defeating Austin, he will warn you that the Silver Mine is very dangerous and will join your army.


South Wood Continued - once you have completed the rangerís trial, you will be able to travel north (the guard blocking the path will be gone). In this new region you will find more powerful bandits, more chests and more wild monsters. These new monsters include mushrooms with powerful elemental attacks. If you travel to the west you will come upon a map that looks identical if you travel north west or south. Traveling back to the east will return you to the South Wood. This new region is a homage to the lost Wood in The Legend of Zelda. Hidden in this wooded region is a powerful weapon ďthe spirit bladeĒ that is of epic quality and has very good stats.


The Silver Mine - once you have cleared out the bandits youíll be able to move north to the first dungeon in the game. This game features quite a few Mine cart puzzles. To solve these puzzles you ride mine carts along tracks on the ground to reach new areas. You can then hit switches to adjust the tracks and open up new areas to explore. Youíll also need to collect keys to unlock doors in the dungeon. Some key events that take place in this dungeon include getting Capitan Garrett to join your party, defeating Xaan the leader of the white skull bandits, and defeating the final boss to get the earth shard.




Other Updates - Iíve done a lot of work with classes, including adding the Lancer (Garrettís) class. Iíve also added 50 different items to the game, some found in chests, others from defeating enemies. Iíve added an element typing system for attacks and monsters. The element system can be split into two parts. First, holy attacks are strong against shadow enemies and vice versa, while holy and shadow attacks are weak against their own type. Next, fire attacks are strong against earth, which are strong against lightning, which trumps water attacks, which in turn are strong against fire. Going backwards in the cycle will result in a weaker attack (i.e. Fire is weak against water). Finally, having more party members will increase the number of monsters you fight making battles more complex but also more rewarding both in fun and in game xp and gold!

I would love to hear what you guys think of the latest development!

I am still finishing up the dungeon, but will most likely release an alpha / demo of the game afterwards!

Pixelot - The Adventure Continues!

So if you have gotten a chance to play the Pixelot Beta, then you know the game stops just after you defeat the first boss. No longer! I have been hard at work continuing and fleshing out the story in Pixelot! I have added two more recruitable characters and a brand new map with plenty to explore.

Once you defeat the first dungeon, you are transported to a mythical realm and confronted by Astrum, a powerful wizard that has summoned you to the land of Pixelot, to combat a dark power that is sweeping over the land. After defeating the first boss you come into the possession of the Earth Crystal, one of 6 crystals that will be paramount to stopping this darkness. Not only is the crystal important, but it also gives your characters new passive powers such as reducing damage taken, increasing power and even causing your attacks to heal you. Each class has its own new power! As you progress in the game you will collect new crystals and in turn new powers. You can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/1AIgTyPVSmk

Returning home, you get the opportunity to talk to the village elder, who thanks you for all of your help by giving you some very rare silver ore. He urges you to see the Blacksmith Ryan. Upon doing so, you are able to recruit Ryan to join your team. Ryan boasts incredible offensive powers and a number of defensive to boot. This also allows you to have a full four man team! He also comes equipped with some truly stellar items

In addition to recruiting Ryan you can also leave the town of Luma through its southern gate. This leads you to the brand new area, the ďMortal PassĒ, a valley riddled with treasure, mercenaries, and dangerous enemies. You will have to watch out for bears with great defenses and eagles that rain lightning upon you. A notable new enemy is the ďMimicĒ. If you have ever played Golden Sun, or Dungeons and dragons, then you know that a mimic takes the appearance of a treasure chest, but is actually a boss! This enemy has a powerful attack that puts all of your best abilities on cooldown! You can watch the epic battle and the blacksmith in action here: https://youtu.be/CwA-MsFdFYc

The mercenaries present a terrible problem as you try to navigate the Mortal Pass. There are knights with incredible defense, hammer wielding warriors that will stun your team, and axe wielding madmen that attack your whole team at once. Luckily you can recruit a powerful ally to help you combat them! Chase the Gambler! Chase has a unique play style in that his attacks could change each turn! You really have to roll the dice when playing him and you can really come up big! This is also a big deal because it forces you to pick your four favorite of the five characters you have, giving the player a lot of free will.

All this has been a lot but there is still sooooo much more to come! Iím working on the mercenary hideout now and there will be 4 new hirable characters in there! Yes you heard me, 4! Iím also working on re adding the oracle class to the game as a playable character from the beginning! Stay tuned for more updates because I promise you they are coming!

Pixelot - Mercenary Hideout

The Mercenary Hideout a new mini dungeon where you battle a series of mercenaries to get back the gold they have taken! There are several different types of mercenaries that attack your whole team, stun you, or are just hands down tough to kill! After battling your way through you will reach the treasure room and confront the four mercenary bosses! These mercenaries are tough and itís the first time you will have to fight another party of enemies that actually works together! Ellen, the cleric, will actually heal her allies each turn and must be handled very quickly. Unfortunately you will have to balance that with Kevin, the berserker, who deals massive damage by attacking your whole party. Fred, the Mercenary, is very difficult to kill, and Brock Lee, the fighter, will periodically stun members of your team! You can watch the entire battle here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XETA7Mz_NXY


After defeating these tough enemies you will have the option to hire them on to your team! The hire costs are quite high so chances are you will have to choose only one unit to hire at first until you can come back with more gold!


Ellen, a cleric with potent healing powers, is the least expensive unit to recruit. She is a very good choice if you did not choose a class that has a healing ability, or if you just want a little more healing on your team. She also comes with a potent area of effect attack. Similar to the sage class, she has the ability smite, which deals massive damage to dark enemies (sneak peak the next dungeon is the shadow one!)


Fred, a sturdy mercenary, has several defensive abilities as well as very powerful row attacks. He also comes with a power stun called knockout. His signature ability counter already has a high power but will also do double damage if he is attacked that turn!


Kevin, a powerful berserker, has abilities that raise his attack and intimidate his foes to lower theirs. He comes with the blacksmith ability sunder which lowers enemy defense. He has two abilities that will cause him to berserk and enable more powerful versions of his default single target, row, and area of effect attacks!


Brock, a balanced fighter, also comes with the ability knockout and is the most expensive unit. He has a powerful chi blast attack that regenerates charges. He has an ability called zen that will also instantly generate charges. Finally his signature ability reverse, will cause enemies attacks to deal damage to themselves instead of him!

The dungeon is completely optional but you can find a lot of gold, experience, and more characters! With the addition of these characters players have even more freedom when choosing their party members! Iíve been hard at work adding new classes and new updates so please stay tuned!

Thank you for reading and I hope you have an awesome day!

Pixelot - Game Improvements!

Now that the mercenary hideout is complete Iím taking some time to add in a few improvements to the game! To start I revamped the animation for the slime enemy to make him look a little more 3D. Iíve also added a new class and made some improvements to the battle UI / UX.



Oracle - the oracle is one of the original six classes, but was not included in the demo / beta because it still needed a lot of work. This powerful class is now selectable as your starting class! The oracle boasts strong healing powers, and great resistance. It also has a higher defense than most casters, in addition to wearing medium armor instead of light armor. The oracle has an ability, grow, that restores health initially, and continues to restore health for a few turns. Once you have collected the earth crystal this ability is enhanced to affect your entire party! The oracle has strong offensive attacks and is a great choice for anyone starting the game!

Battle UI / UX - Iíve made too helpful updates to layout in the prep stage for battles. First, abilities that suddenly become active, such as combo attacks, will now have a gold swirling animation that will help to catch players attention and remind them they are now available! Second, after selecting an attack you can click on it again to view its power, icon, description and itís elemental color!

These updates should help players get a better experience playing the game and go a long way to improve their play. Iím looking forward to working on more things along the way as ideas pop in my head and as always I love getting feedback from players! Until next time!

Pixelot - New Town!

Hey guys! So I have been really hard at work on a lot of new features and areas for Pixelot and I just wanted to take some time and share it with you!

First up, we have a new town! Once you cross the mortal pass you come upon the town of Lyte, which is desperately in danger and needs your help! After defeating some skeletons you get to recruit a sage named Luke and assist him on his quest!

Lyte is a pretty cool town where you can not only buy stronger equipment, but also interact with many NPCís and collect some neat loot from treasure chests. The biggest feature Iíve added to this is Quests!

You can now take Quests from NPCís and get really great rewards from new items, to even recruitable characters! These Quests will show up in a little book icon that now appears in the menu. Youíre also able to view the main quest and see what you are supposed to do next! When you start a new quest, NPCs will have an exclamation above them, when they are in progress they will have ďÖĒ and finally when a quest is complete it will show a ď?Ē. Iíve also added a little preview image of where the quest takes place to help guide players in the right direction!

One notable character you can recruit is Billy the guard. Similar to Garrett this class is the only other class that can use lances. Billy specializes in high hp, and what he lacks in attack he more than makes up for in defense. Billy is meant to protect your other team members through damage reduction, lowering enemy power, and even commanding foes to attack him instead of his buddies (what a swell guy). I hope you like the updates and I look forward to updating the beta / demo soon so people can get a chance to check out these Quests!

Thanks for reading!

Pixelot - Shadow Crystal!


Youtube link | Pop Up


Oh wow do I have a lot to cover in this post! First and foremost, I have finished everything for next update of Pixelot! This means new characters, new dungeons, new items and new monsters!






Iíve added a whole bunch of different enemies to the game, including these three jokesters! (Iím sorry if you donít like punsÖ) now that players have more customization of their party, and access to several healers, Iíve made the enemies a little more difficult and given them more hp. The main theme of the new dungeon and map is the importance of handling damage of time effects (burn, poison, haunt). To make this easier Iíve added the ability to click on a player portrait in combat to view the damage over time effects on the player, and the current stat bonuses they may have.


The main feature of this update is the new dungeon, the dark tomb. The player will journey into the graveyard and purge the darkness that has been haunting the town of lyte. This dungeon is split into three main parts. The first two parts can be done in any order.


On the left (red) side of the dungeon you have more physical, melee and ranged enemies to deal with. This side involves sneaking past enemies, or using raw power to overwhelm them. It also includes some valuable equipment! The boss of the red side is a powerful skeleton lord that will counter attack your abilities if you are not careful.


On the right (blue) side of the dungeon you will fight powerful skeleton wizards and their elemental slimes. These enemies are very dangerous because of their status and damage over time effects. This side also hosts tons of different puzzles that the player must navigate! Iím hoping for this to just be the start of puzzles for future dungeons! Youíll have to defeat a powerful skeleton mage in order to finish this side of the dungeon. Be careful as he can reflect your abilities back onto yourself!

Once you have completed both sides of the dungeon you will be able to proceed to the final room. In this room you will show down with the white skulls once again. Be careful, this time they have bows! When you reach the end you will face Xaan once and for all in an epic rematch. If you are able to defeat him, you will be rewarded with the shadow crystal!!




The shadow crystal (like the earth crystal) gives all of your characters an additional effect! This helps classes be more unique and allows them to be even more balanced! Youíll also get a magical leaf that you can use to recruit the alchemist class! The alchemist boasts powerful stat increasing abilities, the ability to use potions, elixirs, and revives for free, as well as some potent damaging abilities. These will be increasingly important skills for the content to be added in the future!

I hope you are as excited about this new update as I am and I canít wait for you all to play it! Thanks for reading!
