This is a Single Player Java Game, powered by LibGDX. The easiest way to compile and run Java games is through Eclipse, and this one has the .project and .classpath files set up so you can do that without issues.
You’re some sort of a Soldier, with amnesia. You do remember your wife, so you head to your house (The one without lights), and after a quick conversation… she joins your party. Next thing you know, you’re fighting Zombies all over town. Sadly, the LPC Entry is incomplete. The RPG Battles are automatic, and there’s no access to an inventory or stats screen to see your character’s progress. Other than watching auto-battles take place (Sort of like in recent Final Fantasy games, hah) and explore the town, there isn’t much to do.
However Talas (the developer) hasn’t given up on his project. I fired up a much more recent version of his game. The battles now let you select your enemy, and attacks. There seems to be a bug that’s drawing each Zombie twice but I’m sure that’ll be fixed later. The newest copy also includes a Zombie Tower Defense minigame, where you place Archers and Trees to stop the Zombies from going north. Aside from that, the game is still incomplete, but it’s starting to get a bit more polished.
This is an entry worth checking out from time to time to see how it’s going. It can definitely serve as a great base, particularly for those that would like to build off a Free Software Java / LibGDX RPG.
