Arduventure (RPG)

There is no need to add wires to short out. Just press the red RST button on the Arduino Micro, before starting the upload.

Sorry, you are right^^ I´am so stupid^^.
But, it works with wires, too!^^


Dude, you need to raise you own kickstarter for this game, I’m serious, would be glad to help fund it.


I don’t think it would be that successful ^^’ Besides, Arduventure should be free for all anyways :wink:

Currently not working on it anymore though, kind of busy with my main (not Arduboy related) game project (Tales of Lena). As I said earlier, this is one of the projects that would really benefit from an Arduboy with SD card so I’ll probably wait for that.


Even with SD you’d have to build more of an “Engine”… things like quests, NPCs, dialog really needs to find a way to be pushed into the SD to have a truly expansive world. You can’t just code all the logic in C… but engines are fun.

You’re definitely right about that :wink: I mainly programmed it to see what an RPG could look like, I’d probably write it from scratch when there’s an Arduboy with SD card slot.

For those who just got their Arduboy and would like to give this demo a try, I just made a little download page:

Good news: It seems like the recent changes in the Arduboy libraries makes the demo work without triggering the bootloader glitch so no reset should be needed afterwards. If it does happen and you have trouble uploading another game afterwards check this out: How to Reset Arduboy if it's Bricked


When we get around to an Arduboy Plus with SD card then for sure we will find the best way possible to promote this game! It’s the most popular thread on this forum for a reason!


Your link is dead ^^"

Thanks that would be great :smiley: Have been thinking of making a simpler game in the meantime but so much other things on my mind ^^’ I’m sure when I’ll get my Kickstarter Arduboy I’ll get back to it (hope that’ll be soon).

@CalMan Thanks for pointing out, it should work now :slight_smile:


Thanks, my wife love your game!


I want to ask that I got some problem when upload the game file into my arduboy device,the error message is under below.thanks for the gmae:)

Arduino:1.6.9 (Windows 10), Board:"Arduboy

C:\Users\Window\Desktop\Arduventure\Arduventure.ino:3:21: fatal error: Arduboy.h: No such file or directory

#include <Arduboy.h>


compilation terminated.

exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduboy.

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Is this the first game you try to upload or have you successfully uploaded other ones before?

I’ve successfully uploaded DICE_AB_v10 into my arduboy

Have you installed the Arduboy library as instructed in Step 2 of the Quick Start Guide? DICE_AB doesn’t use the Arduboy library but Arduventure does.

thank you a lot it have been really a great game!!


Just updated the zip to make some fixes in the code (changed deprecated functions). Even though it is working it’s best to redownload the game :wink:


So I got my tracking number a few days ago and with my Arduboy arriving soon I felt like getting back to this project :smiley:

I’ll be rewriting it from scratch, adding the features of the demo one by one and optimize where possible. I’ll also have to dump it down here and there cause the demo was just a bit too ambitious ^^’

Hope to show some progress soon :slight_smile:


Seems like people would really enjoy seeing this game come to light @DSSiege11. You demo looks pretty slick. Maybe it can be procedural as all get out! Who knows, maybe… well whatever here’s a tweet for your demo : )


While optimizing the code I’m also reworking the graphics a bit :3




I’m excited to see this come to light, and to play it:)
