Thanks a lot, Blue Dwarf, for ruining my game by correctly guessing what we are developing. We chose this game because it's something I really want to play on my phone when I'm traveling or just sitting in front of the TV. It seems a shame that mobile devices have had no NPC Questing for all this time. I've also had this idea for expanding NPC Quest almost since the original was made, just gnawing at my brain. So it's time.
All the information below is subject to change since the game is not even in a tech demo state yet.
Yes, the greatest game in Hamumu history is seeing a sequel! NPC Quest 2 is the story of a village full of standard RPG NPCs who are troubled by the sudden disappearance of Baldric The Max-Level, who should've conquered the final boss by now and saved the world. So, with heavy hearts they set out to do what no NPC should ever have to do - stop standing in one spot and adventure.
NPC Quest 2 is being developed for mobile devices primarily, but will almost certainly also have a PC (maybe Mac too? Linux?) release. It's a whole
lot more game than NPC Quest was, but the idea is the same: you are playing as an NPC, so you can't actually control your character (NPC means "Non Player Character", you know). There's much more interaction than in the original game though, with a couple of special abilities you can fire off when needed, potions you can use, 4 "moods" you can switch your NPC between (like the "run away" button in NPC Quest, you can choose which priority your NPC has), and interactive objects in the environment you might want to tap on to help out. There's also a little tiny skill tree, all sorts of loot, a village to upgrade, a bunch of classic NPC character classes, a story of sorts, and a unique world exploration mechanic.
NPC Quest 2 - coming someday
from Hamumu & friends.
