Description:
Recently I took part in a "make-an-rpg-in-48-hours" contest (for fun). Now, you can't get that much done in just a weekend, but here's what I came up with: The Amazing Adventures of Kassandra. It's got a bit of fighting, some levelling, and a bit of dialog and story.

I guess my main question is this: Is it worth developing this further, into a real "for sale" game, and if you think it is, what needs to be improved or redesigned to make it good enough?

Requirements:
Should run on any Windows version.

Download game - 13.3 MB (http://www.colossusentertainment.com/Downloads/Kassandra_1_4.zip)

Looks cool. Unfortunately it crashes on launch on my generic XP based PC. Requires fancy graphics card maybe?

It worked fine on my XP laptop, though there was just a bit of slowdown on the screens with the wolves.

I played until the end, and I think with a lot of expansion (inventory, equipment, etc.) and a less linear "story" ;) you could have a nice game. RPGs require lots of content, however.

Weird... it should really run on pretty much anything... It uses DirectX3 with a GDI fallback, doesn't use hardware rendering and needs about 16 Mb of memory... Did you try it in windowed or fullscreen mode?

It goes full screen when I double click the .exe and then crashes a few seconds later.

Feel free to send me a debug build if you have something that can give you more info, lennard@rustyaxe.com

Thanks, that would be great :-) I'll get a debug build to you shortly.

Oh, and btw, the source code is available here if someone would be interested

Sorry for taking so long, but I'm pretty sure I have sorted any crash bugs now:
