faif – Battling with the odds

faif is our entry for Ludum Dare 28. It features a novel combat system based on… gambling!

INSTRUCTIONS After choosing 5 adjacent tiles you only get one! So play wisely with the odds and kill your enemies before they kill you. * Heart: +1 life * Skull: -1 life * Sword: +1 attack for every skull in the selection.


The concept

faif was a 12 hours concept we decided to make because of… well, Ludum Dare! We love the jam and we really liked the theme, so why not? After finishing and sending an early concept version of the game (no sounds and some single-battling against dumb AI), we started receiving really encouraging feedback. Lots of people seem to love the core mechanics we came up to!

What we’re working on (post compo)

Despite currently working on another game (The Narrow Path), we resolved on making a post compo version of faif. So we started working on a to-do list with some specific goals in mind. This is what we’ve achieved so far:

  • Infinite Battle Mode: fight one opponent after another until you are defeated! Every opponent has different behaviour and intelligence types).
  • New visuals and retrofuturistic aesthetics!

Jam version (up) vs Post-compo version (down). Retrofuturistic turn!

Here you can check some new menus!

We will be improving and uploading new versions of our weird battle game for players to enjoy it, test it and help us flesh it out! In the next days we will add new tiles and special powerups. (Note: Check our post compo version and please use the comment section if you have any suggestion o want to share any feeling about it).

So… are you ready to faif?

Thanks for reading and being so awesome! Cheers everyone!

    Just wanted to say that this is an incredibly beautiful usage of orthographic box rotations.
