Gauntlet is an Action RPG that pits groups of up to players against a linear dungeon filled with enemies, traps, puzzles and bosses.
Gauntlet is a side project I started this week. The goal behind it is:
- Learn the Gameplay Ability System in a networked Environment
- Implement multiplayer online using AWS and Playfab
- Implement relevant parts of the Wizards of the Coast D20 SRD into the ability system
- Learn multiplayer Mod Support
This post is to create a bit of accountability and show weekly progress on my journey. The goal is to create a prototype using just a 1 Character then enable Mod support and try implementing the rest through it to ensure it’s flushed out enough.
I’ve worked with both AWS and Playfab in the past so the real challenge is taking point on them to understand their systems better and learning GAS/Mod Support.
This will be a long term project but so far it’s been fun.
