I was inspired by many of the RPGs I used to play as a kid and how they would make you do all of these quests to find a way home. The layout of the village was inspired by some old flash game (I forgot the name) I used to play back in elementary school

What it does

In this game, you are a lost cowboy on a mission to find the two sacred treasures. These treasure are located in a small town, where everyone needs some help. Help the residents of this small town to find the two sacred treasures and win! Use your arrow keys to move around, Z to see the current mission you are on, C to open the map, and X to interact with other people. Note: When you are on a current mission you can't interact with other people not involved in the mission

How I built it

I used the Scratch engine to make the game, Bosca Ceoil to make the songs, and Piskel to make the art. They way this is built is that the entire map, characters, and borders are moving when you press the arrow keys, while you are changing you sprite, giving the impression that you are walking around the town. If your character is touching any of the yellow circles around the map, it will determine who you are talking to and give you your mission. The way the mission work is that once you complete a mission you can talk to anyone, and start a new mission. All these mission being completed will lead up to you find both sacred treasures and beating the game.

Challenges I ran into

Some challenges I ran into was making borders for this game. The way I did this is by making a rough sketch of what I wanted the borders to be, hid the art of that element, and when it the character touch it, it would push the player back, so it would look like you were just walking in place.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I've always wanted to make a decent RPG game, and I think this came out pretty well!

What I learned

I learned how to make music with Bosca Ceoil for this game. I've always used some royalty-free music when it comes to games, so I decided to watch a tutorial and learn how to make my own music. Bosca Ceoil was the best choice for this because
