Crystal RPG – the beginnings of a web-based game.

Last updated:

Last year, Cole and I decided to try our hand at making an RPG game together. Our goal was to make a game based around crafting, collecting items, and completing quests. We wanted to make everything from scratch – the art, music, and code. I really wanted to try making a game in pure Javascript for the web, so we found the Phaser engine and gave that a try.

Phaser is pretty good, but it’s not perfect. In particular, we’ve had issues with frame rate when a lot of objects are in the scene. However, overall we’ve been having a great time working on this game, and I finally would like to share it! Please note that it’s in very early stages, and may not be so “fun” in its current state.

The controls are not yet obvious. At the current time, you move with WASD or the arrow keys, click on NPCs to speak with them, and open the inventory/crafting panel with “E”.
