This is the titlescreen from Diceworld Kingdoms, its an adventure board game.
The dice decides most actions in the game but you can increase your odds by smart shopping and making the de right decisions.
I tried to make it a non verbal game with explenations done by symbols and animations so that its easier to understand nomatter what language you speak.
First option the flag option means local game start.
Second option the globe lets you play over the internet but the one that starts a game has to open a port on their firewall for friends to be able to join... i know i know very amaturistic but the best i can do at this moment :), click HERE to see how its done !.
Third option is a music room.
Fourth... a floppy yes... load a saved game.
And last exit the game.
You might have noticed the oval button on the middle right, for now you can only buy new worlds there with GG (GrinGold), you can earn them by winning a game.
Later updates i will make more worlds, characters and other stuff..
How many players ?
When you start a game you first have to choose how many players will join the game, the maximum is 4.
The upper row is for your friends, first select this one, then the bottom row, thats for how many computer players will join :)
In network play you wont be able to choose a computer player.
Choose your World
After you chose the amount of players you can choose what world you want to play, at first its only possible to select the first 3 worlds but when you win some GG you will be able to buy more.
If you select a world that you dont posess yet it will be locked.
At this moment there are 8 characters to choose from but im planning to make more as unlockable character in the future.
If you chose a computer to join you they will be selected last.
You can encounter up to 4 enemies at the same time and your weapon is the dice, ofcourse you can upgrade your weapons attack that will be added to the dice and upgrade the amount of dice.
You can buy or win armor that will decrease the amount of damage the enemies do every turn.
Its also possible enemies drop loot but they will definately give you experience that will increase your live and coins/gold.
Currently there are over 60 animated enemies in the game and many tough bosses you will encounter.
Lots of sidequests and secret items, over 70 weapons, 16 types of armor and tons of items to either help you or punish your friends.
And becarefull not to slip and fall into the river it will drag you back a long way :)
Besides battles, shops and annoying your opponents its also possible a lucky event drops on you.
In this case its a weapon trade but there are MANY !!!!, trade places, armor trade, secret boss battle, lucky chest and many many more.
Exclamation marks on the board will give you a choice out of 4 lucky events while question marks will give you a tough mini boss.
Shop Shop Shop...
Shops are fun right ?, well this one is :)
Here is a list of what you can do in the village
- Sleep to restore your HP

I build in 3 types of gambling and at random they will appear in the shop.
Ratrace - Choose out of 3 rats who will cross the finish first.
The arena - Choose out of 4 gladiators who will win.
Wheel of furtune - Says it all just look at it... fortunately i got a weapon yay :))
A long long time ago in a village far far away.... hahahaha
Nah just some animals that became aggressive beeing forced out of their natural habitat because of an invading army of monsters...
