Description:
Epic Inventor - The Side-scrolling Action RPG!

A New World

Epic Inventor will present a light story to give you an idea of the background. Essentially, you are an inventor who has found himself stranded in a strange new land. In order to survive, you will have to make do with the things you find around you, while also fending off the strange inhabitants of this place.

You will need to gather materials, such as Wood and Stone, to make weapons and armor (among other things). These will require a workbench, and other early items you make will require a forge. So far, this is very similar to Terraria, hence the comparison.

But this is where we begin to move away from that...

This is a JAVA game, so you'll need JAVA installed.

Additional Info
Here is Epic Inventor.

The game is written in JAVA, and is quite memory intensive, so for CC model, you'll need a Swapfile, and some patience. It seems fine on 512Mo model like Rebirth or Gigahertz.

I have adapted a bit the default Keymap:

DPad to Move (only Left/Right in fact)
{X} to Jump
{B} is Action
{A} is Robot
{Y} is Inventory

Also, in game, {R} is mapped to Left Mouse Buttons.

Left Nub is Mouse Buttons, Right Nub is Mouse (but you can change that using the left_nub and right_nub files inside appdata/epicinventor).

v0.7.0.02
@edgex004: I don't think the update button will work. Online needs the later sources, but the only one available are this one. Maybe someone should ask in the official forum of the game if the sources can be updates.

So it turns out you can still press those buttons even though they overlap, so no big deal there. Now that I've been getting further into the game, I'm interested in trying to get multiplayer running! Is there a way to check for updates on startup, since multiplayer requires the latest version?

Wow I'm really enjoying this one! (More than Terraria actually) is it possible to have the pack/crafting show up in front of your main HUD? As you can see in pic 4, some icons get covered.

Looking good. Having some keybindings to scroll the recipes and create would be nice. Also the inventory shortcut doesn't work in Pause mode.

Swapfile is, I afraid, mandatory for the CC (I tried, but no way). The game is quite fun, the kids are playing it, and after a short while, you get the game mecanics in head and it became fun (plays like a 2D Minecraft).
