Title :Darkness of Hope - Save The Heart of Painful
Code Project : DoH - STHoP
Genre : Short RPG, Comedy, Drama
Duration : 30 - 60 minutes





Overview
 
It's the side story of the main project, Darkness of Hope. The game tells the story of Checilia Silviana and takes the setting in 5 years before the main story of Darkness of Hope begin.

Even though it's an RPG, there is no experience, level, stats or such--it's a completely linear RPG.
 

Synopsis
Darkness of Hope: Save the Painful of Heart tells the story about Checilia and her search for the reasons behind her clans's discrimination,by the other clans.
"Why?" She asks her parents, but no clear answer is given.
"Why?" She asks her sister, Eris, but, still the answer didn't satisfy her.
Thus, she was left in the dark with neither answer nor clue ....
Then, one day, there came an unknown army that invaded their residence. They killed her father, and her mother. Eris, took Checil into safety. But was it really safe?

Features
Unique yet Thrilling Battle System!
May fortune be with you. While it's all based on randomness, try your best and not to be trapped in endless battle.
 

Solve the maze, cooperative way!
You can't solve the labryinthine paths alone..

Here's my very quick and sketchy take on the game (link for info on why it's so short and all that jazz)




 
+The combat style was fresh and interesting.
+Good use of combat animations/pictures.
+/-Mapping layouts were promising, but really lacked good tile use and detail.
+/- A lot of custom art, but some of it is a bit bland/falls flat (to my eyes).
-The intro is way too fast and compressed. It’s impossible to process even half of what’s going on.
-None of the characters were appealing, and the child was a pain in the neck.
-Writing is very unnatural (especially that child) and really need work.
-It seems to try to use Japanese manga-style sounds and uses, but comes across as really tacky.
-Custom sprites really do not fit the maps.
-That windowskin border color is really distracting and bright.
-The dungeon map seemed very lazily done compared to the house.
 
To the developer: it seemed like the gameplay in parts would be quite nice, but it’s bogged down by bad scenes and silly dialog. Overall it does not do a good job of making the player interested (and I can say that child’s unnatural dialog really turned me off. You can’t really expect players to accept such unsubtle messages).
If the presentation was more carefully remade and the text updated you could be up to something. The combat was interesting, but too caught up in unnecessary dialog that slowed things down. It’s an rpg, but it seems to be built like a minigame in a visual novel.

I didn't know, if this game not work in windows XP :(


I am just play in windows 7 and 8, this game work perfectly :)


Thanks about for this issue,

-The intro is way too fast and compressed. It's impossible to process even half of what's going on.
Perhaps because bgm only 1:10, I had to cut a long story into a very short XD


It's a little hard, I had to learn about timing again: D

-None of the characters were appealing, and the child was a pain in the neck.
About this, try playing until game end~, there will be many surprises in Dungen: D

-Writing is very unnatural (especially that child) and really need work.
We need to learn more about writing, thank you.


Our promise to polish it later on :)

-It seems to try to use Japanese manga-style sounds and uses, but comes across as really tacky.


-Custom sprites really do not fit the maps.


That windowskin border-color is really distracting and bright.
I should learn more about the UI, : hmm:

-The dungeon map Seemed very lazily done Compared to the house.
Iam agree, this dungeon very lazy, because tight deadlines. ehehe ...


I hope you can play it again until the end :D


Thanks for playing ^^


Thanks for the advice we will fix it :D

Looking at Code abd knowing that it made sense at one time. Ugh..why did I ever stop? Well I guess it will come back to me.
Well, Blizzard... thanks for making it easy to decide what to delete to free up some hard drive space... I guess. Ugh.
So far, I've rated 5 of the games out of the 120 submitted. Competition is fierce! There are a few which I played and thought "Well, at least my submission is better than this one." but there's at least one which is far better than mine (at least by my judgement.) Trying very hard to rate games fairly and only comment when I have something constructive to say. Good luck everyone!
