Disclaimer: As per subforum rules, this game contains elements of gender identity (which is sometimes held as political), and mild references to sex and religion. Player discretion is advised.

Setting out as an adult into a new village, Raziya the lioness was different from those of the humble settlement. For one, she wasn't human. For another, she was a trained martial artist with mystical powers.

And yet another, she was transgender.

Saving up to afford a more permanent residence in the village of Dawn's Light, Raziya kept her head down and did her day-to-day work. She helped out at the inn she was staying at, and brewed potions for the owner of the local general store. Despite this, she kept to herself most of the time. Until one day...


"A Maned Lioness" is the start of something I've been holding off on doing for a long time -- telling stories revolving around Raziya, a character I've created years back. While she's evolved alongside me, my anxiety and doubts have prevented me from giving her a starring role for others to witness.

That is, until a RMN user named Zorga egged me on to take place in an event on RPG Maker Network, known as "A Rainbow of Positivity". Thus I figured it was due time to share this character with others outside of lesser-known niches.

Guide Raziya's hand as she fights through a fateful chain of events in her new life in Dawn's Light.

Features
  • The short-but-sweet playtime you'd expect from me thus far, clocking in at ~25 minutes
  • A narrative-driven focus to the gameplay, interacting with the villagers as well as witnessing Raziya's inner monologues
  • Actually being able to interact with most objects for lines of narration
  • Some dialogue changing based on what you have and haven't done at certain points of the game
  • With any luck, an LGBT-positive vibe and experience

If it had an ESRB rating, probably "Teen" but pushing it due to themes and harsh language near the climax.

Khloe the innkeeper, chill as can be


Raziya contemplates booze, and demonstrates the ability to interact with most objects in-game


Not quite the birds and the bees



Something to be said about a child's point of view


Due to the solo gameplay, Raziya's defend command also heals HP and MP

What I'm Looking For
As the game's been out a while on RMN, I'm posting this here for a few reasons: a) to share something that I completed something with RPG Maker Web, b) to spread interest in my works, c) to motivate myself into my next project and d) to ask for critique. I feel I know some things I wanna polish for this upcoming project, but I might've missed something between the review and Let's Play on RMN.

Made a surprising amount of progress in these past two days. Really helps when parallax mapping breaks limitation and allowing me to be creative and make maps that match my vision.
Let's promote our amazing artists in RPG Maker community! I posted right now about my game Phil Alone on Twitter and I decided to thanks Lime Zu, the amazing artist that did all the pixel assets for my game!
I just realised that the reason behind me not being able to make a game may be the lack of my original resources. I just dont like the look of MV faces and sprites, lol. Guess I will have make my own art.
I'm posting a commission art soon! :kaoswt2:
So here's a fun/tragic fact about me: I have an awful memory. But to be correct, I have memory "leaks". My memory is actually amazing, my issue is I can't keep memories for long, in fact, I once forgot my name. :kaoswt2:
