    EDIT: Version 0.5 Released - Details in a post below.

    Hi everyone!
    This is the public release of a game in which I've been working (slowly) for more than 2 years. It's a one on one fighting game using the card-based system from Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, where you choose your character and fight against another player or the AI with the game rules. It's called Mezquita Hearts: Degree in Medicine as the stage and the characters are professors from the degree in medicine at the University of Barcelona (that's what I'm studying actually). It's been a long time developing the game step by step and although it's been playable since early stages I thought now is a good time to show you its progress and ask you for feedback.

    Game features
    • Card based gameplay (very similar to that of KH Re: CoM)
    • Free character movement
    • Plan strategies with the deck editor and the deck assistant
    • Set on the Faculty of Medicine of the Universitat de Barcelona
    • 2 completely playable professors with 60 different cards
    • Local multiplayer (2 players) or single player against the AI
    • High level AI competing in equal conditions, even creating new decks
    • 4 skill levels and 6 difficulty levels for the AI + customizable difficulty
    • 100% customizable inputs
    • Player profiles with different settings and statistics
    • Designed to go direct to the fight
    • Complete help section (only in Spanish)
    • Pause menu with battle information: player status, statistics, decks, card effects and special states.
    There are some incomplete things, such as the translations (my native language is Spanish) and the characters themselves (only 2 at the moment), and more things I want to add before calling the game as complete (game modes, options, different battle rules,...).

    To show you a bit of how it looks like, here's a gameplay video:



    Below is the link to the game itself:

    <iframe src="https://widgets.gamejolt.com/package/v1?key=MsxtDCZa" frameborder="0" width="500" height="245"></iframe>

    As currently I have only shown the game to my classmates, who know the teachers represented and to other people within the University's sphere, I don't know how a game like this could have impact on people outside this world, so I will appreciate any kind of feedback to improve the game.

    Also, for the ones who would like to give a more detailed feedback and more precise answers about how is the game developing, I have a Google Form created for the occasion here.

    Hope you like it!

    I liked kingdom hearts card system and this looks very similiar, i haven't tried it yet but from what i see from your game feature i don't see any mention of multiplayer.

    Would you consider online or local multiplayer?

    The idea looks very fun and creative.I m gonna try it when i can.

    Oh sorry, I didn't mention it but the game itself was disgned as a local multiplayer (2 players) as this was exactly what we thought the card system deserved, and after that we added the AI so, yes, it has local multiplayer (I will edit the post now).

    I'd really love to make online multiplayer mode, however I know nothing about networking so it could take me a lot of time...

    Hi! Do you plan to have more characters in the final version? Players usually like it a lot in fighting games, although it already feels fun in this prototype.

    Yes, I do! My idea is to make lots of them, with different playing styles and cards, but I don't know how much time it could take as its me and only me creating this game. However, I want to focus first on more single player options than the quick fight to make it more interesting and addictive! Glad you're enjoying it!
