We are excited to announce the first in a series of mini stories using the Nox Archaist engine to demo the newest features in the game. The Nox Archaist story line is still under development. Any names or characters used in these mini stories are not intended to depict real or imagined NPCs, events, or bovines in the actual game. Any similarities are coincidental.
Nox Archaist S1E1: Shattered Sword
In this episode our hero travels to town and faces an epic struggle to get his sword repaired after breaking it over an ogre's head.
New game play elements to look for in this video include:
- Conversation with NPCs
- NPCs moving between locations on the map based on their daily schedule
- New interactive tile graphics
Most of the new graphics were designed by our team member Bill Giggie. Bill is a professional graphics animator in the movie industry and is really helping bring the world of Nox Archaist to life!
About Nox Archaist
Nox Archaist, by 6502 Workshop, is a 2D tile based fantasy RPG with a classic Apple II look and feel. Our mission is to develop a modern evolution of the Apple II RPG genre, while exploring how gameplay might have advanced in tile-based RPGs if large scale development had continued on the Apple II platform after the 1980s.
