I am currently working on the basic game-play The player will control a party of heroes and visit different locations with different encounters. The encounters are a bit similar to FTL where you get a small piece of text and then some options. I would like to actually create chains of these encounters, but that will probably prove to much work to complete this month.
For the combat part I will probably keep it completely automatic for now as I plan to spend February on the actual combat.
I hope to have a basic playable version this Sunday, after that I will start adding some polish like graphics, sound a main menu etc. and add some more content like encounters, enemies and allies.
