A side project I’ve been working on….Dragon Lord

Dragon Lord is an old school text based PBBG browser game. You are a dragon that must fight your way to the top to earn your kingdom and defend it against other dragons. As you fight, you discover that there is an enemy more deadly than the other creatures and dragons fighting for your territory, and you alone must stop it from destroying the world.

Your dragon is a character in a larger story, make your dragon story into a legend!

I have been working on this game on and off since 2012. It has been on my bucket list to make a game using my art and story telling, and I’m very close to having this dream become a reality. Right now the game is in closed alpha so that I can iron out bugs and add features before I make an open beta release.

It really is a fully homebrewed type game, and those who have played online text based PBBGs back when the internet first became widespread will recognize the format and style. I fully retained the old school look while trying to add my own artistic style that makes it look old in another way, like an old book you have just opened to an old story from long ago. It’s an experimental style using a mix of digital layers and inking with traditional sepia sketching techniques that were scanned and added to the image layers. The game begins with 3 classes of dragons that a player can pick from: Arcane Dragon, Warrior Dragon, and Ranger Dragon. Here is the cover art for the game showing the 3 avatars, as if taken off the pages of an old leather bound book:
