In preparation of building new features for Axel I started a basic rewrite of Runworlds, my autorunner rpg. It was going to just be a simple prototype using the new graphics such that I had a playground to test new Axel features. And then I got carried away and it became a full project (sorry Diamond Hollow 3 fans, I haven’t forgotten about you, you’re just locked in the side cupboard for now until I finish this).

Quick rundown: Terminal. It’s an autorunner. It’s the end of the world. Your goal is to reach the Stargate built long ago in Finality to escape the planet before it’s destroyed (the monsters have drained the planet dry of it’s life energy and it’s going to implode). As you run you face off against hordes of enemies as they also try to escape. You’ll gain levels, find items and gold, learn new spells, etc. The name Terminal is kind of a mix of the fact that it’s the end of the world (the world is terminal) and terminal velocity.

Just wanted to show you what it currently looks like. I’m trying to finish it as soon as possible, mostly because it was supposed to be a tiny side project, but it’s completely taken over my free time. Really looking forward to getting back to DH3 and For Fate!

I’m thinking about porting it to Ouya when it’s finished, but that will depend on whether or not I just want to throw it to the world and never touch it again once it’s complete.
