TTY GFX ADVNTR Press Release

Knoxville, TN – November 2013 – Levi D. Smith presents TTY GFX ADVNTR, his second game published on the XBox Live Indie Game marketplace. TTY GFX ADVNTR puts the player in the role of a hero who must defeat the dragon to save the princess.

The idea for the game was originally conceived through the Mini Ludum Dare 45 game jam competition, where the theme was to create a game using a low level programming language in 48 hours. The game was inspired by BBS DOOR games of the mid-90’s, and it uses a graphical style of games that were played through a computer terminal (TTY). After receiving positive feedback from the Indie developer community, Levi decided to port the original game to the Xbox Live Indie Game platform so that it could be enjoyed by a wider audience.

As the hero, the player must battle monsters across five different lands to gain the experience needed to conquer the dragon. Long time RPG fans will find the battle system and mechanics very familiar. While on the adventure, the player will meet various allies who will assist the player in progressing through the story. Weapons and armor crafted by the blacksmith will give the player the needed power to complete the adventure.

    This is a cool little game. I liked it, and my daughter has been playing it nonstop all day. One question, though: is it possible to save the game? Every time we close the (Xbox 360) game, when we open it again, the only option is new game.

    • Thanks for playing, Mark! Sorry, there is currently no way to save. I’ve been wanting to make a new release of the game, so I will add saving to the list of requested features to add.
