    Dance of the Damned is an RPG with Puzzles and minigames. It tests both mind and body. Using memory and reflexes you must guide your adventurers past many perils. As your characters regain their skills it will slowly unlock new features. This game has innuendos and a few suggestive comments. But otherwise pretty mild. I also have a Deviant Art page where you can find backstory and past adventures with these humorous and incorrigible misfits. https://tanarex.deviantart.com [​IMG] Features.png
    • Hunters and Gatherers- Find and collect various herbs, gems, and meats from animals.
    • Once more with Feeling- Characters and townspeople now show emotions on their face graphics. Which usually consists of eyes open. Eyes closed. Mouth open. Mouth closed. So...yay! Real emotions!
    • Quest Journal- Now features a new quest log to keep track of objectives.
    • Crafting System- Create an assortment of potions, poisons, foods, beers, weapons and much more.
    • Lights Out- New lighting effects to give the game a spooky vibe.
    • Hit the Ground Running- The new equip feature includes footwear and accessories. Footwear will have magical properties that will affect the map. And Accessories will boost certain states.
    • Trailblazers- Run, jump, push and climb past numerous obstacles.
    • The Gatherers- Mine, find herbs, collect weeds, and chop down trees to gather resources.
    • Find new ways to complete quests.(Coming soon to a downloadable game near you.)

    Date: Octenberg 25th.
    "For weeks on end our dreams were invaded, the Curse of the Demore Mansion was upon us. The night terrors acted as both a summons and a warning. Enter the mansion or suffer madness and death, so like a moth to a flame, we were drawn. Each step we took seemed to leave a part of us behind. We begin to lose our identities, skills, abilities, everything but our past. As if to taunt us, so we could remember all that we had lost. The town of Demore had their own trials for us, to help remind us of who we are. Although some of the tasks we were set upon were deadly, we were once again whole. For cannot a warrior recall how to fight without a battle? A thief to steal without a prize? A hunter to stalk without a prey? We rose from the proving ground stronger than before, but would it be enough? We had just finished one gauntlet only to arrive at a far more dangerous one. The mansion itself loomed before us. We took one look back at the assembled townsfolk, they waved and shouted words of encouragement. Now, that we know their secret, it was a cold comfort. They wondered if we would return victorious or become sacrifices for the Dance of the Damned."

    Talk to Crazy Crofton every day. He may sound mad but there is wisdom in his cryptic clues.
    You can also check the Innkeeper's Logbook every day. Each day something funny is written in it.
    There is a limit to the amount of money in this game. So spend it wisely. There is no way to grind for experience or gold. No endless amount of supplies to mine, harvest or collect. No creatures drop gold. Why would a rat have gold anyway? Is he going to the rat mall? Become a mallrat? No, of course not. But what about the racketeers in chapter 3? Don't they drop gold? Nope. And if they did drop gold, it would have been stolen from the shopkeepers. So you basically would be stealing from them. And that makes you bad guys. Since this isn't a solo adventure with Brent, they'd give the money back anyway.
    After you acquire the woodworker ability you can create staffs and crossbows at the woodworker shop.
    It is cheaper to make your own stuff than to buy new ones.
    There is a hidden conversation in the intro scene. But only with the unencrypted game can you see it.
    After speaking about the rabbits with the Innkeeper, return to Gabbie for an awkward talk.
    The Innkeeper can help guide you if you get stuck.
    Later on, the Watch Captain will also be able to help you.
    Open to suggestions and feedback.
    New Update: Added Tips, Advice and Easter Eggs in game development. If you see any resources that I have not accredited let me know and I will add them.
    Newest Update: Problem with the game has been fixed. It is now playable.

    Nice to see I have one fan of my game. But you might be a little bias since you made 50% of it. Maybe I should have a poll and ask if I should keep making this game or don't quit my non-existence day job.

    I think you should keep making this game. It looks great! The only thing I don't like is the fact that your main menu has this totally different art style then the game itself. Looks strange to me. All the in-game screenshots look great though, especially the one in the dark around the camp fire! I would definitely give it a go if you decide to complete this project.

    I'm not sure what you mean. The main menu is the default one. Guiguimu tried adding a new one but it was causing problems. I was hoping you'd like the funny characters and story. Since she did all the art stuff. How about I do one chapter for each comment here from a different person? For example, I'll finish 'The Gatherers' Chapter because you responded.

    I think you should link to this thread in your signature. Way more people would see it. I could make you a cool developer banner like I have in my signature if you want. Would you like that? Also link is broken :kaosigh:

    Took me way longer to find my game. But the new link should work. Already have my Guiguimu working on a banner. Almost done with it. But thanks. Nevermind that was the wrong copy. Will be sending encrypted one up in 10 minutes.

    The one I had up was for Guiguimu unencrypted. So she can do the mapping and stuff. My mapping is bad. But encrypting the right one now. Sorry about that.

    The download link is working for me. :)

    Heeyyy I know who made this title screen! It makes it more interesting to try out your game ;) I really like the system-menu colors in your screenshots.

    Will play it asap.

    @starlight dream hi :kaoswt:
    Should definitely give it a try, it's a story driven rpg but really interesting in my opinion. ^^ I can't say much about this part, but I can't wait to get to a certain part... I wanna meet someone, someone really mean...
    I'm having a lot of fun helping in this project, doing maps!!! My favorite part, and I'm doing it!


    @Tanarex of course you should keep doing this game. For better and worse, you have invested a lot of your time to it, and if you enjoy making it, don't stop. It may take a while to finish, but you will finish. And again, you have at least a fan of the game already, you need to do it for the people! Sooner or later, more people will give this a go, you'll see ^^

    @Thomas Smith are you... Are you trying to steal my job here, buddy? :kaomad3:
    xD jk

    I'm trying MEGAsync. Dropbox keeps giving me trouble when I tried to DL. Hopefully, it will work.

    I've added a new link. For some reason, the unencrypted link worked fine. But when I tried to DL the encrypted link it says I have files missing. Maybe it is just my computer. Let me know if you have any trouble.

    Okay, it's working. Wow, 550 MB? Yikes...

    EDIT: @Tanarex Great, another problem. This appeared when I opened the game.
