Cocoa from Kawaii Kingdom (Lonely developer's blog)



Hello, guys!

Game Concept
A cute and adorable fantasy item shop tale with dungeon crawler elements.

It's a game about an adorable catgirl Cocoa and an item shop she owns. It brings you cute pocket nekoes and great Recettear-like gameplay experience.

+ Game goal is to fulfil item orders, coming from customers (Like in Recettear)
+ You can take quests or just visit dungeons to find loot (Dungeons have monster encounters and action panel like in MMORPG)
+ Loot is needed to craft equipment or items for sale


About Me
I'm lonely developer and don't have much experience (and it's my first Unity game), so I'll study programming+gamedesign and implement game features on the way. I'll post game art here (hope you'll like it) and gamedesign notes to discuss with you.


What I have now (04.04.2018)
Made a dungeon crawling part.



Here is how it looks like:

I also have an item shop / visual novel part and here it is:



Now working on trading in the item shop part and translation into English.


Subscription or support

+ If you like the game, you can subscribe to animated in-game gifs I send twice per week. If so, please PM me.
+ Or you can even support me via Indiegogo (2 199$ and 60 days left). There are mostly 1$ - 8$ tiers.

What I have now. I have simple mini-game (video below) in location, resembling Ragnarok's Nifhelm.

Nifhelm:


Skeletons are inspired by this cool guy, living in Payon cave dungeon:


I've also made item shop screen and filled it with goods, that can be found in dungeons and sold later.


Now I'm planning to add several dungeons and Payon cave dungeon will be the first of them. Also I'll add several loot items and various types of monsters.

Still have to make different monsters and loot though.

My artist made hunter village preview, inspired by Payon from RO.

I'm working on progress bar, displayed when running a dungeon. Added a little bit of dynamics to it: moving slime and obtained loot.
I'll work on monster encounters next.
