The Makers

Andrew, Krisanna

Tale of the World


Something sinister is going on in the castle! But before you can investigate (ie. talk to a handful of NPCs and get a long-winded mission assignment from someone in charge) you must first escape from your guild hall!


Fight lonely old men, various monsters, and some boss monsters that are pretty big in this epic adventure!


But wait, there's more!


If you order (we mean download) now (and into the future) you get:

  • The ability to customize all your items and gear! (Dual wield Greatswords? How about a magical wand that triples your experience? Maybe a healing item that also buffs every stat for 100 turns?!)
  • Change Classes at will!
  • Unlock different Classes!
  • Use a class as a Sub-class!
  • And even more Class line items to make this list look huge!
  • A fully customized battle system that uses combos, happens on-screen, features 3 characters at once, and even uses animations that are only mostly ripped off from the default Ace animations?!
  • A lengthy adventure that is as long as you want! (If you want it to be 80 hours, just leave it running on your computer for several days!)
  • Collectors set of figurines (Disclaimer: No, you actually don't, this is a complete lie!)


Project History and Continuation


This was an entry created in 2 weeks! (Yes, all art and scripts and resources were done in 2 weeks! Except for like the tilesets and icons, which is in the credits section, we didn't even make those and both would take us way more than 2 weeks!)




Meet the Cast


Blanc


Posted Image

Our main heroine. I don't know why she is dancing backwards or who she is going to punch by going in that direction.


Name: Is the name of a pudding... like everyone else!

Weapon of Choice: Depends on her current class!

Likes: Her own table-top RPG game she's making

Dislikes: Having to go through combat refresher courses



Blanc is a recently appointed mercenary in the nameless guild of Boudin. She is excited that the castle has called for her services on some important mission. Maybe it will change her life?

Posted Image That is her bored or, "Oh really." look. It is used quite a bit actually!


Junket


Posted Image
I claim this rock in the name of loin-cloth!



Name: Surprisingly, it's the name of a pudding.

Weapon of Choice: Depends on his current class!

Likes: Manly stuff. Being a jerkhole. Women.

Dislikes: Thinking and monsters that are 'bigger' than him.



Junket is a mercenary of some renown. I'm not sure how much, but it is definitely quantifiable as 'some.' He's nicer when you get to know him, which basically means he's a jerkhole but you get used to it.

Posted Image This is his most intelligent looking face. I'm being nice by using it. (Where have I seen this face-pose before...)



Ashure

Posted Image
What? Where's the cleavage? I thought female armor only covered...


Name: Okay, this is totally weird, but like everyone else in the game, it's a type of pudding! What a coincidence!

Weapon of Choice: A sword! (No, actually it's based on her class, gotcha!)

Likes: Money, money, and sometimes men (with lots of money that will die soon.)

Dislikes: Not having money. Men that want something in return for money. Men she could marry for money that want more from her than her having their money.


Ashure is a lady who likes money and fancy stuff. If it doesn't turn a profit, it doesn't turn her head. Overall she's really not a very nice person, but she kinda acts nice because it makes her look fancy. And fancy looks like money. I think you're starting to get the connection.

Credits

Giving credit where it's due:

1. Mack & First Seed Materials: Tileset and Sprites!
2. Lunarea: VX Tilesets!
3. Whitecat: Extra icons!

I'm always impressed with how much content you and Krisanna generate in such short time!

Played the intro and I loved the witty banter. Faces and their emotions were fantastic. I will keep playing asap, but I wanted to say you did a fantastic job! I hope you won the contest. :)

Thanks for the call-outs everyone!

@Luna: No one has won yet! Glad you got a bit of a kick out of the banter. I'm still not much of a writer, but I think I've greatly improved from 5 years past. : )

@Ness: I wasn't sure what to do when someone died in battle, then I realized there was a coffin graphic and BAM - dead characters in coffins.

I've been a admirer of your projects for quite some time, Anaryu ( I sometimes lurk over at RMN: Aetherion and Cast Aside come to mind ), and it always amazes me how you tend to keep a consistent style throughout all your games. The two of you make a very talented team. :) And your projects are always such a huge sucess. ^^

And I had to laugh when I saw that coffin graphic for a dead character. lol

Parallax mapping is the biggest sin known to RMkind.

Wow just love the art! Interesting mechanics as well I must say. Though I have noticed an error that can really screw up your game. Once you get all three party members, its noticable that you cannot walk through your party. I don't know if this is intentional BUT there are situations where you can get stuck. For an example, in the first town, go speak with the weapons smith in the lower left corner. Your other two party members will block your way, making you stuck. Just thought you should know...keep up the amazing job!

It's very intentional actually!

If you get 'stuck' just 'talk' to one of your members, they gather and you can move. I have it so you can't walk through them to avoid having your party all on top of themselves during combat.

Ok cool, I guess I didn't try that. Well thanks for the help! I'll continue playing and Ill tell you what I think as I go along.

Gosh your going to hate me...I think I found a real problem this time. When using the synth ability from the menu, try using a red slime with a red slime and choose synth. You get this error message.

That's odd - can you PM me the save file or add a bit more detail? I checked that code and I don't know how it could have gotten to that point with a blank effect. I've added an extra check to keep it from crashing, but would really like to figure out how it crashed so I can fix the source problem!

Thanks!

Er, I'm not sure what you mean? Your X key by default (or use Escape key) should open the menu as long as you aren't in combat or in a cut-scene or have any dialog windows open.

I actually had to play it twice since I couldn't save... yup the second time I pressed almost every key on my keyboard TT;;
Even Esc, even X.. it was after he said open up your menu to assign skills or something.. nothing worked and I talked to him again and he wouldn't let me continue until I did that.

I'm sorry, I have no idea how to help on this. The only thing I could suggest is pressing F1 during play to get the Keyboard config up and see if your buttons are set to weird characters or something. : (

Sorry for the double post, I've just posted a new version that fixes item Synthesis.

The version where I fixed the crashing apparently also fixed it so you COULD NOT SYNTH AT ALL (go me for testing this!)

Also, you no longer get a Game Over, it just takes 10% of your gold as was intended (there was one fight in the game you'd get a game over from, but that wasn't really important.)
