”Hi everyone, it’s about time I introduce you to my game project. Yes, there’s one thread about it in the Project Recruitment tab, but this will be the place where you'll find more details, including development updates, episodes and the demo's eventual download.”

For the record, this project is done by a voluntary crew, although we might have stuff like supporting platform later on if anyone is willing to support us. For now, let me introduce the game first.




Bloom In Abyss is an introductory episode for the main Crossfate Saga game: it will serve to kickstart the relationship between players and the Crossfate realm via lore, characters and game mechanics.

We’ll have a HUB menu screen to navigate between story, shops and side quests; the majority of the gameplay will be focused in battles and the story will be told in a style reminiscent of that seen in Visual Novels.

The general thematic is rather serious, for it will be filled with dark and negative emotions representing how intense all the subjects' conflicts are, including suicide and child abuse, which will be warned at the beginning of the story. This is the kind of tale that you can call ‘seinen’ by its characteristics, filled with psychological damage, action, drama and mysteries.

We'll keep everything PG 13 at least.




To compensate the lack of maps to explore, there will be various event CGs to be found and unlocked, and a gallery wherein to see them.

The Art Section is mostly done by me whilst Red also assists with the sprites' workings

and more

and more




In a world called Etherim, there's a peculiar orphanage named Milthorn House, known as a strange and mysterious rehabilitation facility managed by a being revered as The Lost One to create and nurture demons. About 13 special children, named Grimchilds in honor of their benefactor, were gathered by their efforts, but is the last one whom will change things drastically, not only affecting the house itself but other regions entirely as well.

Bloom In Abyss will take three different perspectives wherein the player will have to resolve strange incidents, find answers and survive terrible horrors.

Looks very promising! Well-designed and very pretty.

No need to worry about not having maps to explore - if physical exploration isn't an important dynamic in your game, it's best to get rid of it entirely and abstract it like you're doing - it lets you deliver the stuff that is awesome more directly, such as narrative, sidequests, combat, and character-building systems.

Large-scale battles with 6 characters sound cool; just be careful to make sure that these "difficult", epic-sized battles won't cause the pacing of your game to drag. :)

Looking forward to trying out a demo or completed game!!

February 2020 Update Blog

We finished the basic game system thanks to Ludo's awesome works.


Currently start pouring the story into the game build progressively.
Within March or April maybe we can have something to see. Just need few backround arts first to do first.


See you later.

I apparently forgot to reply to this a couple months ago, but if you still want me to help alpha test, yes, feel free to add me. :)

Am I allowed to make a recruitment thread NOT for RPG Maker stuff?

Like for a group project?
(NOT RPG Maker project.)
If the new RPG Maker's character generator produces full busts and can match the art styles of previous RPG Makers, that might be a big incentive to buy it. An easier way to craft custom map tile sheets though would probably be an even bigger game changer.
