Alpha Dev-Update #12 – Putting support and a forum in place
Samphi is Greenlit!
Description
Release date: Early 2015 if Greenlit!


Samphi is a randomly generated survival/rpg set in a 2D sandbox universe. What will hopefully make Samphi unique from the other games in this genre, is the greater focus on RPG, world management and the story.




The story of Samphi is about travelling through memories to re-live a broken relationship before letting go. A recent comment hit the nail on the head in what i'm trying to acheive. "Terraria meets To The Moon. Interesting. Got my vote." That's just what i'm trying to do. It will be a while before the story is up and running (I'm a single-man dev currently at University as well!) so for now in order to drum up a community the game is out in alpha giving you the freeplay mode in which the world is yours; This is only 50% of the game :)

To add something new to this kind of experience all memories are set in randomly generated sandbox areas which gives a whole new level of freedom. Instead of just carting the player from A to B with fixed dialog I want you to be able to create your own worlds, play how you want and ultimately apply your own significance to the game. Also with the addition of RPG features such as character progression, skills and pets I hope to really immerse the player into the world they create around themselves making the experience much deeper.
  • The story behind Samphi is about the reflection of an ended relationship.
    The characters are 'boy' & 'girl'. They have no dialog, no mouths, just their memories.
    Experiencing these in a sandbox world allows you to follow the story in your own way.


  • Play as either 'Boy' or 'Girl' and travel through the memories of their relationship.
    Each memory will find you in a randomly generated area in which you replay the memory.
    Complete all memories in the timeline and their tasks to learn the story behind 'boy' & 'girl'.


  • Samphi's story is me sharing my own experience. Almost an interactive diary.
    The loose telling of the story will allow you to add your own significance to your experience.
    If that's not your bag there's always freeplay mode where there's no restrictions.



Since I've created a whole sandbox universe for Samphi, as well as a story mode there is also freeplay where this world is your own. There is no goal, just sandbox goodness.
Create your own world, live your own story, use your skills to survive and hone them to master the world around you.
  • Each world is made up of randomly generated areas. What you do in this world is up to you!
    Dig, build, gather and create your own world. Don't take too long; things go bump in the night.
    You have plenty of materials at your disposal so let's see what you can create with them.


  • Once you have gathered your materials you are ready to craft.
    Use what you have gathered to forge new items and equipment to help you build your world.
    To craft better items and building materials build yourself a crafting bench.


  • Now you have your items and a shelter its time for the final step. Food!
    There's multiple ways in which you can get food including gathering, fishing and farming.
    Time to get back to your house, rustle up a campfire and cook your spoils.


  • While doing all this you will be gaining experience and improving your skills.
    The more you hone your skills the more competent and masterful you'll become.


  • Accompanying you throughout your adventure is your own pet.
    As he/she accompanies you you will find your pet grown stronger alongside you.
    The pet is currently a dog but I hope to add more later!


Samphi is in its most infant form. This is the first real build of the game so there's lots still to implement.
The funds raised through alpha funding are going to allow me to dedicate more time to development and make the best possible game.
Here's SOME of the features that I have planned for future development.

  • A solid story based on the description above
  • Greater RPG elements such as character progression, skills and pets
  • Larger worlds with more biomes
  • Local and online multiplayer
  • Many, Many more items
  • More weapons and enemies
  • More features I don't even know yet!

@Licensed Stupidity, Don't worry dude, I didn't misinterpret what you were saying or take offence. :)

Criticism is good; makes sure gamers get the best from the dev and are informed. I'm not one of those dev's that will block bad comments and things like that. :D

@TITOMOSQUITO187 I was trying to give advice, i maybe flipped out. @Greeny Game Studio, Actually i would buy, depends on the price though, never overcharge for games, they never sell. I Heard the multiplayer is going to be better than terraria's sloppy IP connect, i'd reckon it could be fun.

@TITOMOSQUITO187 Thanks for having my back! It's great to see people are willing to give it a shot, and it's fine that others might not be so open to it.

Each to their own.
