The future is now, and now is the future. Note: This game may contain a small amount of mild language. Also one of the characters has a somewhat suggestive outfit. Hello people! I see you saw my thread and got interested...so I will jump right in! If you would like to support me, please put this badge in your signature. (Credits for the text go to https://cooltext.com/. Credits for the face go to Frontier Works.) I am currently in need of somebody willing to do three animated actor battlers for this game. The details can be found here. https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/i-need-three-animated-battlers.94652/ And I have a Discord server for this game. Here is the link: https://discord.gg/f7jam7K I would love it if you would give me feedback. I want to know how I can make this better, and I am sure there are some bugs in it that I completely missed that one of you guys might be able to help me with. A lot of the game takes place on a fictious planet of fire and sulfur, and the planet is named Neplounides. That is the name I thought of for it, even though it will not be seen for a while in game. Spoiler Special Thanks to @Sauteed_Onion, for his willing assistance toward this project, including making amazing music, and for his constant support of it. Special Thanks to @Jchurch9, for his work on the writing for the game. He is working actively on it and it sounds great! Special Thanks to @Puruiro, who made a fabulous battleback for my game. Special Thanks to @Starmage, who made amazing battlers for my game.

Not all of these creations are on Earth. Ever since man had thought, man had wondered about what the universe had hidden within its vast, cold expanse. What might be there, past the sea of shining stars. Desires like these have burned in the bellies of humankind, leading to discovery after discovery. Man has uncovered more than could ever be counted. Finally, after so many turned to dust, burning away in the flames, chasing after the secrets of the universe, man’s dream has finally come true. Man has unlocked the door of the stars. It is the year 3018. Earth has placed their hopes in three brave explorers; hoping they can find and charter the mysteries of the universe. They are to find new planets, to explore them, to learn them, to charter them. Their names are Nova, Pandora, and Andromeda. And this is their ship. The Falcon S7. Spoiler: More story (spoiler alert) Earth is destroyed by an unknown object as they argue on their ship. They decide to make a time machine to take them back to before Earth was destroyed and warn Earth about the coming danger. Time travel is complex! The background in the character images is by Guiguimu. Spoiler: First Pandora the proud and selfish one Every game has to have one character who is selfish, rude, and mean. Pandora is a good example of that. She was raised spoiled, and she has never really grown out of that. Spoiler: Second Nova the cool and collected Nova is rather a lonely man. He tries to do what is right, and acts calm in most situations. His parents were shot when he was young and he grew up on the streets. Spoiler: Third Andromeda shy and kind! Andromeda is different from both the other characters. She is shy but very kind and generous, and tries to find the good in everything. Spoiler WARNING: FOR WINDOWS ONLY.

NOT the ones above. @Puruiro made some really cool fan art for my game! It's right here! @NeoFantasy made a good drawing of Andromeda, found right here! Spoiler: Game Outline I made an outline for the game in a Word document. This is the game's entire outline, and includes major spoilers. It's not finished yet at all, but more will be added as I think of it Spoiler: Itch.io Page I also put the game on itch.io. Here is the link to it, for anyone who is interested. https://thomas-smith.itch.io/delta-origins-rise-of-nexus This game has very little RTP. Very little. But it does have some, and it is not included. You will have to download the VX Ace RTP. It includes DLC, and thus the file is encrypted. This game is my "dream game". I will see it through to completion, no matter what.
