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.
Features.png
  • Hunters and Gatherers - Collect various herbs, minerals, gems, meats, etc, from various sources.
  • 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. Including Bonus Objectives and Secret Ones. What are the Secret ones? If I told you it wouldn't be a secret.
  • Crafting System - Create an assortment of potions, poisons, foods, beers, weapons, and much more.
  • Lights Out - New lighting and shadow effects to give the game a spooky vibe.
  • Trailblazers - Swim, Skate, Climb, and Move heavy obstacles with magical footwear.
  • Achilles Heel - Discover the Strengths and Weaknesses of both Characters. For Example, Firewind has a condescending attitude to other people. Causing humanoid enemies to hit him harder. And he has no idea why.
  • Sticky Fingers - Steal from enemies in Battle. There is also a chance to find something rare and one of a kind.
  • Picked Clean - By dealing the death blow with a specific skill a party member can find unique.
  • We are all Special Little Snowflakes - Each Character has their own set of skills and abilities. Vincent specializes in Stat debuffs and long-range Attacks. Brent can steal, cause ailment, and do other cowardly things. Firewind is the only Spellcaster in the group and can really bring the Thunder. Jedd is the tank of the party. He has a taunt ability and uses Formations to give Stat bonuses to everyone else in the group.
  • Does this hurt? - 4 Different types of Weapons cause unique types of damage. A new Weapon Master Book has been added to explain them.
  • What's under the bed? - New Monster Catlogue added. Discover the enemy's strengths, weaknesses, and other useful info.
  • Everything is Magic- A new magic book has been added to explain the magic system.

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 its 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 staves and crossbows at the woodworker shop.
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: The 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'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.
