(note some of the features are listed sarcastically or jokingly due to the jam's theme)

- GORGEOUS mapping, utilising only the default tilesets of the RPG Maker VX Ace engine!

- Be utterly DAZZLED by the sheer depth of the characters!

- Fantastic and well-balanced story pacing, nothing feels awkward or rushed or whatever... nope

- Such an original plot totally not ripping-off elements of much better series

- Super challenging boss fights and random encounters that you must use all of your skillz to defeat!

- Brilliant mind-numbing plot twists that will break your heart and quite possibly your brain

- Voice acted event scenes, because we can! And nope, you can't skip them~

- Spacebar (or Enter) whatever you see, because it might harbour a secret item or at least some dialogue with important choices!

- A truly reflective cover art to display the great wonder of this masterpiece... totally not an epic-cover-to-entice-you-to-play-this-crap scheme, right?

- There's also 5 original musics in here <3

- Oh, and IT'S FREE!

DEV NOTES
I am proud to reveal our third completed project, "Crystal Captor: Memory Chronicle Finale". This was an entry for the "So Bad, It's Good!" Jam at itch.io, and man, did I have a lot of fun writing this! We had 1 week to make this game. This is my first finished game on the engine RPG Maker VX Ace. It has voice acted cutscenes, about 600+ lines are voiced by a total of 10 of us--everyone was quite speedy in their delivery. The script was written in about 2 days time. The cover took about 3 days for my artist to draw, I believe? Most of the bulk of the work was mapping and eventing and modifying moves, making new ones, adding items, etc. Now since I am so used to making visual novels, the cutscenes can run a bit on the long side, so this is pretty story-heavy--therefore, I made sure to event in Save Screens in between certain cutscenes that may run a little long as you can't save in the middle of dialogue. We really hope you enjoy the game, we certainly had a lot of fun making it! As per the theme, I think you have an idea of what to expect hehehe~ Nevertheless, have fun!

ASSETS:
Inkhana (the beautiful cover art), Doodled (5 original musics), Alcaknight (free to use end song), Chocolate Mint Tree (a couple sprites/facesets), Division Heaven (one faceset/battler), freesound.org for a couple ambience, HimeWorks Battle Music script, EVERYTHING ELSE IS DEFAULT RTP. Writing/Eventing/Mapping by Kokoro Hane.

Wooow! This looks really pretty, Kokoro! <3 I freakin' love the trailer, it's art presentations and the voice actings! ^_^ <3 <3 :) I'm DLing the game and give it a try indeed! ^_^ :)

EDIT:

So I played until the mysterious white haired guy appeared! And OMG! You do not know how many times I legit laughed so much with this game! XD :D I freakin' love it! <3 The voice acting is really good btw! ;)

Every character was really lovable and funny in their own ways, but I'll vote for the "Adopted Brother" here, because he's hilarious! lol! XD :D I can't stop laughing at Aunt Mona and being called an old lady. xDD And OMG, can we even take the time to appreciate Mr. Cabbage man?! <3 Lol! His VA is golden! xD :D I also love the part in the INN library, which was kinda ironic that everyone wishes for us to be silent there, but then the NPCs there had voice acting! Lol! XD :D

Really though, poor Moses! hahah xD :D His reaction when his parents suddenly decided to adopt this random blue haired guy was priceless! XD :D

It was really fun! Though it's obviously very story focused and gameplay factors weren't really too important, I still really loved and enjoyed it with what I played so far! Gave me quite the good laugh and the VA's are once again really good! :D It's like watching anime! XD :D

I'll prolly play some more and see where I end up haha xD :D

@Starmage I am pleased you are enjoying it!! This was a fun game to make, and it only takes approximately an hour to complete. I recommend in the final dungeon not to open the blue chest though. If you intend to, save first and you'll see why xD
Very VERY pleased you like Mr. Cabbage because he is voiced by my brother and seems to be the fan favourite haha. I can't wait to here your opinion on the rest of it! Developing it was a really fun week.

I am actually working on a sequel nobody asked for too, haha, which I feel is even better so I look forward to the day I can present that crazy piece to the world xD

Ohhhh! So the game is getting a sequel huh?! XD :D Niceee!! ^_^ I cannot wait cause I just finished it hahah xD <3 Love it! <3 :D

Had a lot of good laugh most esp. at the part where the whole party's voices turned to Cabbage Man lol! XD :D It's hilarious! xD And that twist at the end was really funny! XD :D TO think it was that guy the whole time! Thankfully, AMina had some tricks up her sleeves. xD :D

The ending bit with Auntie Mona's interaction with the cast was still just as funny! Lol xD :D Again, I really love the characters! They're all super charming and funny in their own ways! XD :D I feel like this is truly how many comedy RPGs should be done! :) ^_^

Amazing job with this game Kokoro Hane! :D ^__^

Btw, you did a great job voicing Amina! XD :D And your brother's Cabbage Man is still super slaying it xD :D Everyone did amazing! :D

@Starmage Well get super hyped! The sequel is called Rebellion of Gilfer's Bay hehe. I will be posting a WiP of it later when I got some screenshots to show. First I will be completing the script which should not take long. Prepare for more wit, more intriguing plot, intensity, new characters, same beloved characters, mind numbing twists, voice acting, Mona's dazzle and plenty more cabbages ^^

Yes, I love making comedy stories and fantasy RPGs is so ripe with many possibilities!!! I enjoyed developing the world, and you'll learn more about the world in the sequel (like what the regions are actually called, etc.) I'm literally gonna take the story up a notch (or 5 lol). And happy you liked my voice for Amina despite my fail attempt at a British accent, but it works for the theme of the game =P

Did anyone else get a 'sever error' a little while ago on fourms? because I did...
So... today was a friend birthday and she explicitly requested this little scene, otherwise she'll come to my house and shot me with a water gun.

Kinda late to the party but if you're trying to make a game with relatively large roster, my suggestion: be ready for a long, long ride yourself.
were the servers acting weird a few minutes ago for anyone else or was it just me?
I finished playing Shadows of Adam. With just the increased stat monsters and keeping gear from completing game, I didn't feel much motivation to play new game plus. I feel that there should be new content to discover if new game plus is part of a game, like Chrono Trigger's multiple endings, or the Diablo series' vast collection of loot and lore items.
