Trytuges, A Quest, and AAA

My magnum opus (TutOHRial) is a no-brainer; I'm absolutely going to polish that up a bit in the coming days or weeks and put it on my itch.io page where it can go some real good.

But I've been considering the other games in my library and which ones could meet with moderate success.

Trytuges
A very basic RPG. Basically complete as-is but I plan on increasing most of the heroes' base accuracy by a bit, fleshing out the random encounters and treasures for the final dungeon, and adding the ship parking script. If we got a "vehicle override map music" setting the way we got a vehicle encounter override setting I'd use that (I had music for sailing the ship planned before basically anything else).

Snake Hallway
Possibly too thematically similar to the other two games I already have up; I don't want my audience thinking this is all I do. It'd probably be ideal to polish up something about it by then; in general I don't feel most of Marina's spells are very powerful compared to their cost.

A Quest
Honestly I think this is a good example of an RPG still being fun even without any status afflictions. I would add a couple of shortcuts to make backtracking easier after certain amounts of progress; an exit to the fairy forest clearing after beating Magimaster, a shortcut to Westfort unlocked by defeating the Flaming Knight.

This game has a distinct style and I like it. I've had suggestions to change its name, but can't think of an alternative.

AAA
A really compact, simple RPG with exactly all the scripting it needs.
In the past, I apologized when I was in the right because I was afraid of peer pressure. For this, I apologize.

The list I'm working from. I haven't done today's yet...or yesterday's as of this posting. They're coming this afternoon.

To keep myself doing something, for the month of October I've been doing a minimum of 1 monster sprite per day, following a list I made last year because I had a lot of fun with Inktober.

For some days, I had enough ideas to make three or four sprites fitting the same theme. I'm sharing only one of each in this thread, and will be releasing the entire package once it's finished.

I was hoping to make myself return to the forum and share my monster list sooner so others could follow along on the challenge. Also I think it's weird that there's no option to manually arrange attachments within a post and it always displays the most recent upload on top when it'd be more intuitive to go the other way.

Is there anywhere I can see more of each game?

Ichitachi here would be the starter in a hypothetical monster collection game, and would be able to be replaced with an "evolution" for every elemental type.

Some sort of obstructive rooster.

The name of each game in the OP is a hyperlink to its download/description page.

Axeolotl.
Still unable to think of a good name for A Quest as I was when I first started, I decided to just put the word "the" next to it and wound up making the name Athe Quest. It's not literally A The Quest, but somehow that name feels more specific and evocative.

Athe Quest is, by design, not my prettiest game or my most elaborate, however I do think it's unironically fun to play and well designed. Some of the sprites from it (ghost, slime, skeleton, gashadokuro) are also going to make their way into my free graphics recourse folder.

I ended up voting for that one because it's the only one that looks like it has non-human playable characters, and I'm always looking for new games that have those.

Cu Sith. A different palette might be a less magical friendly doggo.

I don't know what you'd call this worm.

A cannister robot.

A pooka is an all-black goblin with glowing eyes, known in particular for its ability to shapeshift.
Today's theme is "fairy" so I just went for one of my favorite fey creatures from Celtic folklore.

A harpy with a harp. That's the kind of wordplay I like. Harpies are still disgusting, hideous creatures.

Is it any surprise for me to say I'm not much of a breast man? I decided to touch this up a bit after taking the screenshot.

For "Ancient" I went with the player character of my first ever game.
new RPG0072.png
"Dehydrated" and all I could really think of was a skeleton with some tattered cloth or skin hanging off.

Still trying to settle on a name for this giant dog monster. "All-Seeing Eye Dog" is currently my top choice.

"Yourself" So here's yet another drawing of my fursona. I can never get tired of drawing the same handful of characters numerous times!

Not feeling good lately. At a certain point even a complete antisocial shut-in like me needs more time outside.

Been putting a little work into Athe Quest here and there. I ought to illustrate the scene with the heroes being introduced to Owlder and still need to draw a new title screen.
