What is it?

#ProjectRiptide is the codename for a long term project: a full immersive RPG adventure in Minecraft. It contains fully custom mechanics, world, and more. The development is being documented here (full playlist).

You can find the latest devlog here.

Phase 1 (Current)
Phase 1 is the first release of #ProjectRiptide. It will be a mechanical test of gameplay not unlike a demo. Imagine a single quest or dungeon. The release date of Phase 1 is undetermined but is set to release relatively soon.

Phase 2
Phase 2 will take the feedback from Phase 1 and create what's called a 'Vertical Slice'. A Vertical Slice is feature complete but not content. This means the mechanics of a game being present, but not all the hours of gameplay. A good comparison is the Great Plateau in Breath of The Wild.

Phase 3
Phase 3 is the complete game, both mechanically and in content. Phase 3 takes what is learned from the previous phases and puts them into a single project. Phase 3 will more than likely feature an expansion of the development team as the goals and lessons from the previous phases cement the spirit of the game.

Devlog #7 : by Devons_Desk 11/11/2022 2:37:11 pmNov 11th, 2022

In today's update, we added a STEALTH system. That is correct. Now, by crouching in bushes, you'll slowly become more and more hidden to enemies' eyes. We also added rocks that the player can find in-world and pick up by right-clicking them. The rocks are used to trigger interactables like the beenest and explosive barrel. In the future, I'll add an attention system that combines with the Stealth and Rocks. Rocks and other events will be used to draw enemy attention away from the player, so that they can continue sneaking around. Things like explosive barrels and beenests may also be used to draw attention. Overall, should allow for a lot of fun strategy.

Next devlog, we're going to work on level design for Phase 1. It's been put off for a long time, but we're finally just about there. Most of the core mechanics are in the game and we can aim for a player test (the purpose of Phase 1). I'm pretty excited to see real player feedback but don't want to rush it. We've gotten this far by just playing by ear and working on it only when I want to. For at least the first phase, I want to enjoy that gap. That being said, I'm going to aim for a Phase 1 release before the end of the year. No promises, but it is something that I'd like to do. Thanks for the continued support, y'all. I hope you'll enjoy the game once it's here.

To be determined! It's still in early stages, focusing on feature code and testing out mechanics in Phase 1. If we DO do open world, it'll be in Phase 2 or 3.
