Pyrodactyl who released The A.Typical RPG are working on a new game called C.R.A.B which will also use emotions like with their last game and develop them deeper into “Mood”, “Content” and “Tone” which will offer much more combinations then in the usual cRPG.
The graphics isn’t looking that good and the developers are aware of that, that is why they are looking for artists to make the game look great.
“It’s been months of silence at Pyrodactyl, while we have toiled away, working on something big. That something is codenamed C.R.A.B., and it features RPG elements, a branching story and 2D brawler gameplay.
Check out this work in progress video :”
“As Ian mentions in the video, we are looking for 2D environment and character artists. If you think you can help, please email me at arvind [at] pyrodactyl [dot] com !
Now that the recruitment info is done, here’s what I can share so far about our plans for C.R.A.B. :
1. It will be bigger, better and more polished than The A.Typical RPG
2. All the lovely people who bought the Extra Cheese With Lightning Bolts Edition of ATRPG will get the game for free.
3. The characters shown in the video probably won’t be in the final game.”
Thanks to Grzegorz Budny for letting us know of those good news.
The GNU/Linux binary was released at 9th of April but no GNU/Linux gaming website reported about it, so I think it could count as “news”
The A.Typical RPG is a quirky game that seeks to put you in the role of a college student having the weirdest week of his life as he shapes his destiny, while trying to keep a social life and decent grades. With hand drawn graphics and retro-yet-modern music players will have to play football, cheat on exams, use raw emotions to sway people’s opinions, brawl with bullies, rebel against teachers and much more!
Can our hero save the world? Can he pass the exams coming up next week? Is the world in any danger at all? Can he face the girl of his nightmares? The game plans to answer this and many other questions.Get ready for an experience that is – well, atypical.
Contains mundane yet exciting situations, tactical gameplay, hand drawn art, modern yet retro music, branching storyline and lots of awesomeness!
This game makes an exam feel like an epic battle. Beat that, Call of Duty!
While the graphic could be much better the game offers unique approach to dialogs.
Instead of picking up the sentence you want to say like in most RPG’s you can pick emotions and tone of voice with the sentence to get a different results.
