Default Noahmund: Development Challenges and Creating an RPG From Scratch

July 26th, 2018, 01:57
Hello Everyone!

Creating a game is no easy feat. It can be challenging to manage assets, code, scripts, and production schedules. However, nothing is more frustrating (or frightening) than losing game data or important information. This happened to Estudio Ábrego a few times during the creation of Noahmund. As the team gears up for the game’s release, we’d like to share just a few nightmares they faced during development:

After a conference at Gamepolis 2017 to discuss Noahmund’s soundtrack, they lost the entire manuscript for the game. This meant that all the fixed dialogue and scenes for the game were lost. This forced the writer to rewrite the whole game with a whole new vision. It took a year for him to complete it, but he’s happier with the characters, scenes – and of course, the ending. It was a major setback at first, but it allowed the narrative for Noahmund to evolve into something even better.

If that wasn’t enough to deal with, every time Estudio Ábrego moved from one office to another, their game repositories broke – and days of work were lost in the process.


Despite these challenges, Noahmund is nearly complete and will be available on Steam soon!

What are a few of your game dev nightmare moments? Let me know in the comments!

I don't know what I'd do if I lost all the current code/writing for the project I'm working on. Probably just throw my laptop out the window and then start planning a new game. On the other hand, though, you presumably only lost part of the work, so you still have a bunch of assets that you can't waste. Good work on pulling through!

Mercifully, I haven't had any massive disasters. I spilt a cup of tea on my programming laptop the other day, so that has slowed down development as I need to get it fixed. If that's the worst that ever happens, I will consider myself blessed.

Hey there!

I wanted to share some more about Estudio Ábrego – the creators of the awesome tactical JRPG Noahmund. The company name refers to the southern Spanish wind that brings rain, water, and life.

Estudio Ábrego believes video games help people improve their emotional and mental health – to make friends and take a break from the real world. Video games allow players to travel to and explore worlds without moving at all. They are dreams that come alive – and that is exactly what the team hopes to share with the world. Their stories – Noahmund included – revolve around themes like freedom, love, friendship, and equality. We want to send our dream into the universe and spread our stories with everyone.

What started as a 2-person development studio now has 11 passionate members who are excited to launch Noahmund soon!

Oof, yeah, even accidents like that are pretty harrowing. Best of luck to you!

Hi Everyone!

This is Nile from Estudio Ábrego. Our new game Noahmund is an old-school tactical JRPG inspired by classics like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy. It’ll transport you to a vast world ripe with dungeons and demons – which you’ll explore by way of a classic grid system.



Noahmund features an award-winning soundtrack and has been accepted into the prestigious Square Enix Collective.

This is an unforgettable adventure you don’t want to miss. We hope you’ll enjoy setting forth on an epic journey to stop a devastating war in a mythical world full of monsters and heroes in Noahmund – available now on Steam!
