TerraCraft is a pixel-2D side-scroller survival sandbox RPG (Role Playing Game) that’s been made and developed in Unity. The objective of the game, like all RPGs, is to invest a bit of time and effort into the game to complete multiple tasks, explore the world and gain XP (eXperience Points) to invest in learning skills to become stronger. The player is also not limited to what they spend their XP on, as the game will be fully flexible and will offer the player freedom of choice. The game will feature a dynamic day/night cycle, which, when in use with the parallax effect, will give off an aesthetically pleasing 3D effect. At certain times of the day, i.e. midnight, different enemies will spawn, e.g. zombies, mummies, etc., to give the user a unique experience for each time of day, making it a little bit harder to survive.

The game will be built using C# in Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and is aimed mainly at Windows PCs. All the graphics used within the game is of my own design, using fonts created online by myself on FontStruct, and using images (sprites) created using Adobe Photoshop CS6. Data for the game, i.e. save data, will be stored locally on the players’ PC in their AppData folder, ensuring the data is easily obtainable using a persistent data reader.
