The 2 main characters stories are heartwarming. I'm going to have to give this game a shot. Art looks really good too but I have a soft spot for souls that are hurting.

It looks fun, and I like the graphics. I like the simplicity of the user interface you have, with weapon and shield selection. Makes it easy to visualize!

@Kalombi Thank you, simplicity was exactly what I was going for. Just need to edit the icons a bit so it matches the game style better : )

The map tiles remind me a lot of old school Final Fantasy, but with a bit more detail, looking good.

You mentioned that you were looking for some ideas. Have you considered making Alysia playable? Reference, Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. You could title the game based around her passing, example: Alysia Lost.

For better ideas, try searching for words that reflect what your story is primarily focused on. I used the word, effervesce in my project. Effervesce was a word I used for of a liquid, and vivacious. This describes the protagonist being named after wine, and her personality.

The other word I used was fallacy, because her primary quest is to find the Stimulant, but the Stimulant, or even the quest itself may be a fallacy depending on the player's actions. I'm old, so I used a physical dictionary. I'm sure you could find better resources for different words you can use in your title on a website.

@Stimulantwasfound I have at least one special scene planned for Alysia where she's playable.
I do have a second character I might make playable in most of the game, not 100% sure yet but I will look into it today.

Not a bad idea with the title, thanks!

These graphics really take me back! And I love that you're telling a story with a brother and a sister. I'm really close with my sister so these kinds of games really speak to me.

Reeeally nice looking game, sweetie! I'd probs keep the game contained to just Aryen, with short periods as Alysia. That'd make the story tighter, deeper, and more involving!

@alice_gristle Thank you! That's exactly what I will do. Alysia will have max two scenes (most likely just one) where she's playable, but it will only be in the full game. She will be included in cutscenes but that's it. The focus will be on Aryen and his story.

UPDATE:

- Alysia's sprite has been edited and this will be her final look.
Alysia.png
-Kian joins in as a second playable character. You can change between him and Aryen through the menu.
Kian.png
- A new feature: Collect memories. How many there will be in the demo is unknown at the moment.
- I've made two special areas so far, I plan to have six in the demo.
- I'm done with the town Estercrest - screenshot added.
- There will be seven locations to explore in the demo, not including the special areas.


Not sure why but in screenshots and characters everything has been separated into two spoilers sections. Can't change it so it looks a bit messy.

What? I got two spoilers with pictures in them, if that’s what you mean. I can’t change that though.

About time they finally press the kill switch button for older makers.
Sorry everyone, I am here sporadically. After 6 years of delays after delays in my life, I try to do all mat once and that means that I spread thin everywhere because it just is impossible to crunch 6 years in one or even two, but I try! I wish many of that I would already given you and put behind but... well...
I'm looking for an experienced gamer who has played a few games created with RPG Maker, who knows what an alpha build is, who may remember the old days when cliché was the favorite word on Creation Asylum, who, if a reviewer, would ask for my permission before making a review to post on YouTube, or whatever, since I will be messaging you a 10 minute, or so, DEMO based on an alpha build of Effervesce Fallacy™.
