Every two levels you’ll get to select a new skill for your character, these are triggered just by moving around (for example, cornering an enemy against a wall or jumping on a wall to evade them)

Backstory

Rogue one was pretty cool, so I decided to mod Rodney and transform it into a new game.

It was not a straightforward conversion tho… Rodney has no ranged combat, which is essential to the Star Wars universe, so I had to implement it. Needless to say it was no easy task since the game was design to have all action happen sequentially (i.e. the outcomes of all enemies actions happened immediately).

I also removed the “light source” mechanics (which are a pretty big thing in Rodney) since they didn’t make much sense on this new universe.

The online features of Rodney (basically a “community” level where people could move around and chat) were also disabled since the websockets server for Rodney is disabled, I couldn’t invest time into that and I’m not sure it even adds something to the game.

I’m thinking on making a graphics version, since Rodney already supports graphics, but I’m trying to get some help from a pixel artist. Please contact me if you are interested.
