Lugdunon is a 2d multiplayer RPG / sandbox game that is reminiscent of the 16 bit console era. Lugdunon runs within your web browser, so no client download is needed. Lugdunon can also be played ‘on the go’ on mobile devices such as iPads and Android tablets. Players can engage in combat with each other or with NPCs, craft and trade items, empower their character with the advancement system, place and decorate in-game signs using the full-featured sign editor, and more! However, what is really interesting about Lugdunon is the ability to take the game and truly make it your own. With powerful in-game editors available to players who have been designated ‘Game Masters’ and the ability to run your own server, the sky is the limit! Currently, from within the game itself, Game Masters can create new crafting recipes, add and edit NPCs, paint the landscape using up to 16 terrain layers, raise and lower elevation to create cliffs and chasms, place items, and edit NPC spawn points.

Alpha 0.5.3 released. Important features: modifiers (buffs and debuffs), visual character effects, item and modifier tooltips, a proper implementation of player and NPC death states, and more.

Character modifiers (buffs and debuffs) finally make their debut. Modifiers for your character appear in the upper right hand of your screen. Modifiers have a fairly robust API, and can be extended to modify a character's stats, behavior, and more in a large number of ways.

Buffs / Debuffs Bar States

Here is a quick demonstration of what modifiers look like when they are applied and when they expire:

A Buff Expires

Actions and modifiers can now apply various visual effects on a character's sprite. Modifiers can specify an applied effect, expire effect, and an effect that persists for the duration of the modifier. Actions can currents specify only an effect that is triggered when the action occurs.

Here is a demonstration of several of the effects currently available in game:

Visual Effect: ClawVisual Effect: SlashVisual Effect: Interrupt
Visual Effect: ShieldVisual Effect: HealVisual Effect: Resurrect
Visual Effect: DispelVisual Effect: Flare

Taking into account the increase in the number of items and item types, as well as the addition of modifiers, the need for tooltips quickly shot to the front of the development queue. Tooltips appear when you mouse over (or touch on mobile) an inventory item, or a modifier icon. They provide a wide range of information such as: a short description, crafter, whether or not the item can be crafted, or is used in crafting, tool and weapon use, equipped and modifier effects, and more.

Tooltip: Tool and Weapon
Tooltip: Equippable Item
Tooltip: Direct Damage Spell
Tooltip: Buff Spell
Tooltip: Buff
Tooltip: Crafted

A proper death state is now implemented. No longer will NPCs simply disappear, and no longer will players immediately respawn at their home point.

When an NPC or a player dies, they will fall down dead. Attacks, heals, and modifiers will have no effect on a dead character. In the case of an NPC, their corpse will disappear in 30 seconds, and players will be presented with a dialog informing them of their death. Pressing the button on the dialog will respawn the player at their home location.

In the future, players will be able to wait at this dialog for a party member to resurrect them.

Death! (animated)

Bears are now roaming the land. Beware!

Bears!

Another important addition is that players are now informed if they are attempting to load the client with an unsupported browser, or if certain features are disabled on a supported browser. In the case of an unsupported browser, the player will be presented with download links to several supported browsers.
