Tagline
You don’t have to be good to save the world. You just need the right motivation.

Premise
There is no such thing as Monsters.
Or rather, there was no such thing as monsters, until someone let them out.
So what does one do when they have just loosed such a plague upon the unsuspecting world? Why set themselves up as the worlds first (and only) Legitimate Monster Hunters, and charge a lot of money to get rid of their little infestation.
But no one can fly high forever, and something is about to happen that is going to bring everything crashing down.
Things have just gotten personal.

World
Long ago all the Monsters of the World disappeared. The hows and whys have been lost through time and the humans who now live believe the stories of Monsters passed down from parent to child, to be mere fairytales. Humans have grown without Monsters, moving past the need to defend themselves against the creatures of darkness. So when Monsters once again roam the land, subjugate their towns and kill their people, what can they do?

Well, here is my contribution to the NaGaDeMo (National Game Development Month). I hope you all like the idea and will play the game when it is finished. Feedback is always welcome. (I've posted this now so I can stick the link to it into the NaGaDeMo regestry)

DEMO AVAILABLE
(Fixed problems in Demo that Rebellion Of 7 pointed out, this one should work fine)

As there are things happening in my life that unfortunately will end up meaning I might not get this finished within the month, I thought I would share ACT 1: THE BEGINNING with you all, to give you a feel for the project. Reading about it only tells you so much. It isn't a long part, in fact, the whole game itself isn't long, and there is very little in the way of battles at the moment, the real heart of the gameplay starts in ACT 2: THE CONFLICT, where you get to travel the world and go on quests.

ACT 1: THE BEGINNING is to introduce the characters and the world and to get you used to how the game is played.

I hope you enjoy it.

Okay, so I took a look at it. I'm at your first "dungeon".

A few things:

You may want to look into polishing your first dungeon. I've noticed that the bookshelf with all the bread on it, in the room with the bookshelves (trying not to spoil for others) can be walked through.

Also, in general, I really didn't know where I was supposed to be going once you gave me control of the first three characters. I kinda remembered but I wasn't sure, so I wondered the world map until I found it.

I do applaud on you on the sliding bookshelf- it's impressive. How did you event the "going through" animation?

The second floor balcony has no way to get back inside (I'm writing this as I play) so I'm stuck now. I'll have to reset.

Also, you have a staircase on the bottom left side of the castle map that does not work.

EDIT:

I went ahead and explored your city on my second playthrough.

I love the old man in the church. "Hustle and bustle", +4 cool points.

Most of the houses are locked, which is okay, I guess. It'd be nice to explore a bit, you know?

2nd EDIT:

Kudos on redrawing the Castle F2 map. I didn't even notice what it was until later on. I'm really impressed.

Also, the guy in your guild hall that talks about the quest journal, brings up an error.

The tower is still locked after getting the mirror.

Its only a quick game. So full exploration of the towns will likely not be available unless I release a 1.2 version. I'll look into the tower thing, thought i'd fixed that.

I'll also see if I can make it a bit clearer where your supposed to go.

Thanks for letting me know the glitches. i'll get on them quick and repost the demo link (without the RTP which should hopefully make it quicker).

I'm glad you liked the edited castle. I'm rubbish at mapping myself, so I having the pre generated maps was a godsend, not I can just edit them to look different without getting myself all frustrated that I can't map things from scratch the way I like. The rest of it will likely be edited too, but again, that won't be unless I do a 1.2 version. (have to actually finish the damn thing first.)

As to the moving book shelf... I'm going to make a demo/tutorial on it... eventually...

Theres still so much more to do. I'm thinking I might have to do some major streamlining to get it done. So most of my special features will have to wait.

Let me know what you think. Thanks.

This game is AMAZING!! I really do hope I can create something this good.
The story is very interesting as are the charecters, I love the way the battle system and menu's look!
Did you create those yourself ?

I'm just using the defualt RPGVX battle system for now, it makes my game look like swiss cheese compared to yours xD
The swearing wasn't all that bad, i found the charecters all funny and entertaining in there own way.

The dungeons and world maps where well designed and I really found myself wanting to play more which is a really important part of a RPG, or at least I'd like to say so :P

It's late at night so i'll need to continue playing tommorow !! Can't wait to uncover more =D
Keep up the hard work, and let me buy the full version when its done okay? :D

Thanks. I'd appreciate any feedback.
I'm back and working on it again, so hopefully I should have it finished soon, I did manage to get most of the main plot written into the rpg maker, just the eventing and quests and stuff to do now.

I hope to have it done by the end of this month at the very latest.

I'm curious what the key items do!

Your mapping is average, so nothing to complain there. I am curious of the last three screenshots in front of an open chest...I'm not sure what's going on there.

The story sounds like something that you do hear a lot in old RPGs with the "save the world" syndrome, but the characters not filling your typical hero role could prove interesting.

I like the idea of hidden passage! A lot of RPGs stopped doing that recently.

The key items are fun, they can be used for a bunch of things in game.

It's just a little scene from later in the game, I thought it was amusing, but it might not make too much sense in screenshot format.

Yes, the story is pretty generetic in terms of "save the world" but the characters certaintly aren't in it for the greater good or to actually help the world. lol.

I love secret passages! so there didn't seem much sense in not having them.

Updated with some awesome pics of the characters drawn and coloured by the marvelous Cosmickitty!

Give it a go. The demo itself isn't dark or anything (that comes later) so you should be safe enough, though when the full game comes out I would say heed any warnings.

I could always use the feedback.

Ooooooh unstereotyped animebigeyescatears graphic design!!
This + your scenario = I download it :P
But I will play it a bit later because tales of the drunken paladin got me stuck :P. But I will sure try it, my promise!

Btw you should really upload a version without rtp added it would raise the download motivation level of every vxace user in this forum :)

I had thought it was a non rtp version... hmm, that is unlike me.

At any rate, please enjoy and let me know what you think. Just bear in mind, the maps are all placeholders. The story should be fairly solid though... I hope. lol.
