Divine Knight Tests The Game Boy Waters For Their July Game

Amazing Mazes by Divine Knight GamingDivine Knight Gaming’s most recent entry in their One Game A Month challenge is taking them into the realm of Game Boy game design. Divine Knight is taking part in the Game Boy Jam and wanted to test the waters before diving right into Game Boy territory. The resulting game is Amazing Mazes.

Amazing Mazes is a bit of a return to simpler fare for Divine Knight. After the ambitious Alex’s Meadow RPG, something simple helped cleanse their creative palette. The premise is a simpel one. Navigate the maze and find the flag. There is a timer that keeps track of your current and best time for each of the four mazes.

Divine Knight Tackles RPGs For Their June Game

Ale's Meadow RPG by Divine KnightDivine Knight has been working on a one game a month challenge this year. So far, they have successfully completed a game every month, except the month of May. For their June game, they decided to tackle a really ambitious project, an RPG. The result is Alex’s Meadow RPG.

While it is not a full fledged RPG, there is no leveling or stats to build, it still plays like one as it has turn based combat, and a fantasy setting. The game features four playable character classes each with its own ability to help you as you fight the various monsters in the game.

The most unique aspect of this entry is the fact that the lead developer’s son, Alex, designed the world in which the game takes place.

Divine Knight’s May One Game Failure

As we all very well know, not all game development efforts are going to be a success. There are times when even the most basic of games cannot get done or just don’t turn out right. In these situations, we simply must buck up and take what we can learn from them and do better next time.

Divine Knight Gaming had just one of those experiences in their efforts to create one game a month. In the month of May, they set out to make a Bomberman clone but due to issues outside of game development, they were unable to complete it. However, there are two things they learned while making this game.

Divine Knight Continues One Game A Month Challenge For March And April

Board Game Quest by Divine Knight GamingI am continuing my coverage of Divine Knight Gaming’s effort to create one game a month, for the challenge of the same name. I missed timely coverage of March’s game and felt I better get on with covering it and April’s game before we ended up with May’s game on the docket. So with that out of the way, we have a couple of interesting games to show you.

For March, Divine Knight Gaming created a game called Board Game Quest. This game is a tactical board game prototype with a fantasy setting. Inspired by the Lego Heroica series of board games, it features four warrirors on a quest to defeat a demon at the center of the dungeon. Each character has its own unique ability that will come more into play as the game moves from prototype to full fledged multiplayer game.
