Legends - Video

by Skavenhorde, 12:07

Here is a blast from the past for all you indie watchers out there. We first reported about the game Legends three years ago. Since our first newsbit the developer has slowly been making progress with the game. Now there is a video to show off the latest build of the engine and a few locations that appear in the first couple of chapters in the story. Just in case you forgot about this game (I did) here is an overview of what the game is about:

So what is Legends? It's a project that has been in development for a number of years now, the aim being to create a role-playing game set in an original world that mixes aspects of fantasy literature with elements of early medieval history. To do this the first step has been to create the Legends CRPG engine that gives the player a three dimensional first person view of the world. For all the technical details of what makes up the Legends engine please refer to the Development Page. If you are more interested in what type of gameplay you can experience with Legends then please read on.

As the Legends game has developed the goal has been to create an environment where the player can shape his or her avatar as desired. Characters may become a thief not through selecting a class prior to starting the game, but through their actions. Just as character classes are not explicitly selected, characters statistics will not be explicitly shown. While status bars will show fatigue, strength, etc there will not be pages of numbers stating that a certain character has an intelligence of 18 and a level of 12. Weapons will not be described as a 'Sword +3' for example, it being assumed that the player (with feedback from NPCs in the game) will be able to work out that mail armour is more resistant than leather.

Legends - New Indie Revealed

by Dhruin, 21:23

RPG Codex has noticed a new indie RPG in development titled Legends (not to be confused with Master Creating's Legend: Hand of God).  The site often refers to the project as an RPG engine but a full game is obviously in development.  A tech-demo is available to download from the site.  Here's a snip from the intro:
