Tic Tac Tower - World's First Tic Tac Toe RPG



Tony D and myself wanted to share our latest work with you guys. Tic Tac Tower, The world's first Tic Tac Toe RPG. I had the idea for this game when "powdering my nose", if you will, in a restroom stall at the Bakersfield Airport business park in of the hangars. There was no air conditioning and it was at least a 110 degrees in the restroom. I
found myself glaring down at the square tiled floor when the idea came to me. I don't know if it was the universe sending me the inspiration or if was it simply because I was about to pass out from heat exhaustion!? Regardless of Tic Tac Tower's humbling beginnings we are ready to start sharing it with you and we hope you will like what you see so far!

Let us know if you have any questions!

Story

The Royal Xnights of the Xingdom defend the realm by use of the four towers. Each tower protecting one the four corners of the land. The evil Ork Captain coveting these lands for himself is always scheming against the Xnights to capture the Towers and turn them against them.

Late one night when the youngest of the Xnights, Sir Xandor, was supposed to be guarding the tower keys, fell asleep. Always watchful and waiting for the right moment the Ork Captain snuck by the sleeping guardian and snatched up the keys. Sir Xandor awakens to find the keys missing and Towers in the control of the Ork Captain, his four lieutenants and their horde of monsters.

Help Sir Xandor reclaim control of each Tower in this Tic Tac Toe RPG hybrid. Battling your way to the top of each tower and defeating the Ork Captainís four Lieutenants.

Basic Game play Gif



Overview

Player moves across dungeon by connecting three (Tic Tac Toe) squares together, Direction you move in is determined in the last moveís direction from starting square to landing square in 8 directions. Each move you make will be followed by a move from the Ork forces whom will begin to occupy squares around you.

Reach the stairs in each dungeon floor to climb to the next level. Make sure to watch your health and keep the enemy Ork forces from getting three enemies in row or your mission will be short lived.

Collect coins and gems scattered throughout the dungeon, allowing you to buy items of use to aid Xandor and crew in their quest like Potions, weapons, and magic sigils.

Coming Soon for iOS App store and Google Play

Lol...beeeen there buddy

Powdering tha nose eh? Inspiration springs forth from the combination of euphoria and finding oneself in odd and uncomfortable situations; been there =D
I have actually thought about tic tac toe as a possible mechanic for a mobile rpg/strategy type game before, glad to see someone has had a similar idea and is actually putting it into action! Love the idea, so far it looks great, let us forum rats here know if you need any beta testers!

Glad the intial reaction is positive! This week are working on intergrating the rest of the Royal Xnights into the game, currently we have planned 6 different Xnights to fight the Orc horde with. Xandor is available at the beginning and you can unlock new ones with Gems.

Here is a little about them...


Sir Xandor
Special: Attacks with light hits at enemies as he slides by, when moving around board.

Sir Xavier
Special: Lands a medium hit to any enemy in the grid next to his final destination in the direction he is moving.

Sir Xerxes
Special: Hammer attack can smash breakables with one hit.

Dame Xandra
Special: Dagger attack has high chance of poisoning a enemy.

Dame Xenia
Special: Shoots arrow at all enemies in gameplay area when moving

Xia
Special: hits all bordering enemies with single hit

I take it you have been to Bakersfield then?

I took a programming job for creating data collection apps for Android and iOS which brought me out here for the oil industry. Did some cool stuff with it. They recently promoted me to self employed after we successfully delivered the final product. So yeah I am stuck here it would seem for now.

Hopefully will show some of the Xnights it action by saturday!
