Momento Temporis: Arena (multiplayer PvP)

Post by ReFreezed » Fri Jul 14, 2017 5:28 pm

Image

This game is a spin-off of another game of mine - Momento Temporis: Light from the Deep (a metroidvania). Someone suggested that the game should have some multiplayer functionality and I said "nah, I'd rather make a separate multiplayer game". And thus, Momento Temporis: Arena was born!

Arena takes place in the same universe as Light from the Deep and features the same creatures and similar gameplay elements, such as melee combat, magic casting, some platforming and stamina management. It draws inspiration from traditional PvP arena games such as Unreal Tournament. The game also comes with a level editor!

I tried this by myself (sad) and it seems to control really well. The magic powers seem great. The graphics are awesome. The whole thing really looks AMAZING.

Sadly I don't have an Xbox controller, so no chance of giving it a shot with some actual competition. Is there a way to play with two players on one keyboard? I think that could be really fun. Like one players on WASD, and one on IJKL. This also gives the opportunity for hilarious/annoying actual physical jostling at the controls.

@robotron9000
Thanks a lot for trying out the game! I'll put "allow multiple players on keyboard" on the TODO list. :) It's probably a good idea to also add a settings page for changing keyboard bindings, in case the default layout doesn't work well.

The thing about jostling actually gave me an idea for a new spell that would allow you to take control over your opponent for a short while, or reverse the controls or something like that. :3

I'm curious, how are you saving the arena to a file? I saved one and couldn't seem to find the actual file. Only asking since I'm not too well versed in LOVE.

There's a button with a folder icon where you load an arena in the editor that should open the save folder. Otherwise they are in these folders:

Windows: %APPDATA%\Momento Temporis - Arena
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Momento Temporis - Arena
Linux: $XDG_DATA_HOME/Momento Temporis - Arena

itch.io Update!

This small update makes it possible to configure uncommon/unrecognized gamepads. Also, when dying, a spirit now moves between the death and respawn locations. Makes it easier to see where you're respawning. Read full changelog

This is also the first version to appear on the brand new itch.io page for the game! I figured that's a bit better than having a folder on Dropbox.

Go to itch.io and download beta 0.11.1
