Synopsis: You start on your 18th birthday deciding to become a Pixa Battler, after taking a small test you're given a Pixa as your starting companion which you'll then be able to level up, and go through the world battling others. The game will have some basic creature collecting mechanics you'd expect in any game of the genre, as well as some not so unique features such as how to gain extra Pixas. This game is being developed around the board game my company is developing, and will feature elements as such. After defeating an enemy you'll get random items, these can range from a Pixa to add to your PC which you'll be able to add to your party from, to equipment that will help you out along your journeys. An entirely Pixelated world at your disposal with a linear quest to follow, extra content to branch out in, puzzles, fights, and legendary Pixas to find. Oh, on top of all of this, there's literally tons of references/easter eggs in the game. These range from anime, older cartoon and games. There's only 4 elements in the game as well, Earth (an even mixture of gameplay), Fire (more combat oriented), Water (Defensive and Tank filled), and finally Soul (Healing/Support). Each one has it's own unique playstyle and abilities that can both compliment one another.

Characters: There are 185 unique Pixas you'll be able to collect throughout your journey, some common, other rare and some still can only be found in specific areas in the map making exploration something to strive for.

Those are just a few, and the larger images are the final Pixilation's of the Pixas. A Pixelation is when you give them to someone that turns them into the better form of themselves. Most Pixas have three Pixilations, however some have 2 or even 1.

The game is still in early development, however there's currently over 40 unique abilities (around 75 after everything) all with pixelized graphics. currently over 15 unique 8/16 bit music, as well as some animations around the map. Below are some gameplay GIFs for your viewing pleasure.


This first video showcases the test you take, depending on your answers you can get 4 different resulting Pixa starters. So your starter will match your playstyle more or less based off of your answers.


This is a GIF showcasing the basic starting area.



This GIF showcases the jumping mechanics. This is slightly hidden and allows you to go to areas that you wouldn't expect to be able to go to. Sometimes having hidden treasure, or areas with more rare Pixa Spawns.



And finally this video showcases the current combat of the characters. It's your standard RPG Maker MV combat, however it works pretty nicely with the whole Creature Collecting Genre imo.

One of the most long and repetitive things I've had to do in a while was to resize 185 images, then rename all 185 images, and do it all over again 4 separate times to get this to work. But the results are totally worth it!

I've also slightly changed up the battle screen. Adding a more unique feel to the game.

So a massive update on everything!

fishing-gif.8697


I've added in a unique fishing mini game which will be the only way to collect Water Pixas.

On top of that after 3 days of work I've managed to fully create the Deck system which allows you to withdraw, and take out any pixa you've obtained based off of it's ID number.

And finally I've finished a promotional video of the game!
