Hi all,

Armed For Battle is my brand new strategy game for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
I've been working on it for over 2 years, and it is nearly ready for a cartridge release.

At Midwest Gaming Classic (April 12 & 13 in Wisconsin), I will have a special demo available to play.
I also have a demo available to play right now at my blog.

Here are 3 trailers showing gameplay (a little old now):

Trailer 3 - showing Battle View

Trailer 2 - showing World View

Trailer 1 - showing Castle View where you build your town

(this view has been modified just a bit for the final product)

 
More recent videos (gameplay tutorials) are on my youtube channel.

The box and manual are currently in production.

Or you can watch my blog, which gets updated about every week.

Wow, look at those high graphics, all those details. It must be the latest in technology and I must have it. I'll take it for $100. I know it should be worth $150, but I'm rough on cash right now.

Rizz I think I'm in love with you.

You are doing exactly what I think people should be messing with these days. Making exciting games within the limited confines of the best gaming platform ever created.

I use Context for writing code (6502 assembly).  I use Tile Layer Pro for graphics.  For sound, I put it straight into code and then test it with my sound engine.

Thanks!  One thing that I really like is that it can be done by one person.  The NES was lacking in RTS games, since that genre emerged after the NES's time.

It's pretty neat that you're making a NES game and putting it on actual cartridges. 

I tried out the demo, it seems pretty complicated though, I couldn't get very far before I got a game over screen for some reason.
From the screenshots it looks like there's a lot of depth to it. 

 

 

Have you worked on anything else for the NES?

Glad to hear you tried it out.  I have a feeling you got a game over because you were attacked and had no troops ready for the battle (in the demo version, pressing the start button will automatically cause an incoming attack).  I hope you'll give it another try - I recommend building a Bow Workshop to make 20 Bows, and Build an Archer Guild to make 20 archers... and then press the start button for a battle.  Once you have a few basics like that, then you can try out some of the other buildings & troops.

 

I have written code for the NES and studied NES coding 2 or more years prior to this project, but this is the first game release I've had.

Wow, that looks insanely nice, and the way the website is set up with the game's presentation is also extremely well-done as well.

Thank you Tundra Fizz.  By the way, I see you are at Digipen?  That's where I was in 1997, at the original Vancouver school.  :)   How's Claude?

Wow that's pretty cool that you went to DigiPen too :'D

 

He's doing well, though I don't see him too often now since I'm taking two summer classes (and have one class on Monday through Thursday).

 

I heard some horror stories about DigiPen's previous location, with one of the worst things being how there was no air conditioning so it was extremely hot and stuffy. I'm kind of glad I didn't have to go through that :o
