Default Arena.xslm - An EXCELent Game

March 26th, 2013, 13:56
For those who are not bothered by the lack of graphics here is something that might be interesting: A RPG made in Excel. The name of it is Arena.xslm and it has the following features:
  • Random enemies: Over 2000 possible enemies with different AI abilities.
  • Random items: 39 item modifiers result in over 1000 possible item combinations and attributes.
  • An interesting story with 4 different endings depending on how the player has played the game.
  • 8 boss encounters, each with their own tactics.
  • 4 pre-programmed arenas followed by procedurally generated arenas. Each play-through has its own challenges.
  • 31 Spells. There are many different strategies for success.
  • 15 Unique items. Unique items have special properties and can only drop from specific enemies.
  • 36 Achievements.
  • This is all in a Microsoft Excel workbook.
At the very least it shows some impressive Excel skills.
