About this game
Samphi is primarily a story driven RPG set in a randomly generated, destructible sandbox universe. You will fight across many randomly generated levels, craft, build, level up and collect gear. Most importantly; you play the game how you decide. With 2 game modes, story & freeplay, you can either play through my story or create your own.
Samphi is a game about the end of a relationship. By travelling back through memories and re-experiencing them retrospectively you see the relationship in a new light. Each memory is a lesson, and only by learning these lessons can you overcome your obstacles and reach 'Girl' at the end. In some memories you will actively be reliving them but in others it will be your job to safe guard them and the lessons they carry.
To add something new to this kind of experience all memories are set in randomly generated sandbox areas which gives a whole new level of freedom. Instead of just carting the player from A to B with fixed dialog I want you to be able to create your own worlds, play how you want and ultimately apply your own significance to the game. Also with the addition of RPG features such as character progression, skills and pets I hope to really immerse the player into the world they create around themselves making the experience much deeper.
- The story behind Samphi is about the reflection of an ended relationship. The characters are 'boy' & 'girl'. They have no dialog, no mouths, just their memories. Experiencing these in a sandbox world allows you to follow the story in your own way.
- Play as either 'Boy' or 'Girl' and travel through the memories of their relationship. Each memory will find you in a randomly generated area in which you replay the memory. Complete all memories in the timeline and their tasks to learn the story behind 'boy' & 'girl'.
- Samphi's story is me sharing my own experience. Almost an interactive diary. The loose telling of the story will allow you to add your own significance to your experience. If that's not your bag there's always freeplay mode where there's no restrictions.
Since I've created a whole sandbox universe for Samphi, as well as a story mode there is also freeplay where this world is your own. There is no goal, just sandbox goodness.
Create your own world, live your own story, use your skills to survive and hone them to master the world around you.
- Each world is made up of randomly generated areas. What you do in this world is up to you! Dig, build, gather and create your own world. Don't take too long; things go bump in the night.You have plenty of materials at your disposal so let's see what you can create with them.
- Once you have gathered your materials you are ready to craft. Use what you have gathered to forge new items and equipment to help you build your world. To craft better items and building materials build yourself a crafting bench.
- Now you have your items and a shelter its time for the final step. Food! There's multiple ways in which you can get food including gathering, fishing and farming. Time to get back to your house, rustle up a campfire and cook your spoils.
- While doing all this you will be gaining experience and improving your skills. The more you hone your skills the more competent and masterful you'll become.
- Accompanying you throughout your adventure is your own pet. As he/she accompanies you you will find your pet grown stronger alongside you. The pet is currently a dog but I hope to add more later!
