Digimon World Ace: The Lost Symbols
A medieval-style Digimon fangame

DEMO AVAILABLE!

Full Version Release: TBA

This project is now in Hiatus. More information can be found here:
http://rpgmaker.net/games/6879/blog/15224/

Hello, guys! This is the Digimon project I've been working on for some time.
It's still on its early stages, so I need a team to continue on.
 
***FIRST OF ALL***
This project contains mass content from the official Digimon media, such as sprites and music.
All of these contents are properties of Namco Bandai.

This is a non-commercial project made for entertainment purposes only.
 
Engine: RPG Maker VX Ace
 
- SYNOPSIS -

An ancient prophecy of the Digital World says that a destined child will be able to find the legendary Lost Symbols and release an immeasurable power. Knowing this, The Master devises a plan to bring the chosen one to the Digital World, take ownership of the power and use it to expand his control beyond the Braveheart Server.

In the real world, rumors fly all over the internet about a mysterious website with the words "The gate to the Digital World will be opened" which attracts the attention of thousands of children, especially our hero and his friends. However, no one imagined that the site's words were telling the truth. With this, more than four thousand children are abducted from Earth, leaving to the Master the task to identify the destined child.

As the chosen one, our hero has the mission to find the Lost Symbols and use their power to stop the Master's plans and bring all children back to the real world. He then embarks on a great adventure, becoming friends with Digimon that will help him to locate the symbols and bring peace to the Digital World once again.
 
- CHARACTERS -
The Hero
Tyson.pngDefault Name: Tyson
A middle school boy addicted to games in general, especially online games. He is very reliable for his age and has a strong sense of justice. He was never a huge fan of Digimon, but the adventure that he will live on the Digital World is sure to change his life forever. He is always seen wearing his favorite red headband.
Main NPCs
Stuart.pngStuart
Tyson's best friend. He loves Digimon and believes that the Digital World really exists. He also has a crush on Violet.
 
Violet.pngViolet
Tyson and Stuart's only female friend. Some people in school call her "Stylish Nerd" due to her high grades and exotic looks. She hates Digimon.
 
Keith.pngKeith
Tyson's neighbour, classmate and rival since kindergarten. He loves nothing more than being better than Tyson in everything. Very popular among girls at school.
Villains
The Master_Temp.pngThe Master (non-official picture)
The main antagonist of the game and the self-proclaimed ruler of Braveheart Server. A cruel dominator that does everything for power. He never takes off his mask, so no one knows his true identity.
Picture from the RTP.

Wisemon_Face.pngWisemon
The Master's devoted counselor. He is said to be the smartest Digimon in the whole Digital World. Acts as the brain in most of The Master's plans.
Picture by BANDAI.
Playable Digimon
These are the main Digimon that will accompany the hero in his journey:
Monodramon.pngHawkmon.pngLalamon.pngGabumon.pngTsukaimon.png
Monodramon       Hawkmon            Lalamon          Gabumon          Tsukaimon
 
NOTE: Since they play the most important roles in the story, I won't spoil their descriptions.

- SETTING -
The Braveheart Server


Footage of Boot City

All of the action is set here. A Server in the Digital World is equivalent to a country in the real world, with the difference that it's impossible to go from a Server to another by normal means. Braveheart is a medieval-looking Server inspired in the MMORPGs. The Master wants the symbols to break down the walls between Servers and control the whole Digital World.
 
Only some few scenes will happen on the real world.
 
 
- MAIN FEATURES -
- Turn-based battle system
- 5 playable Digimon, each with unique playstyles and digivolutions
- More than 80 digivolutions
- Digivolutions in and out of battles (like in Digimon World 3)
- Sidequests
- Summons (FF8 style)
- Post-game content (New Game+)
 
 
- SCREENSHOTS -
Here are some previews of the work so far:

As one of the Digimon fans, I can't overlook this. Count me in for mapper and writer. But I'd like to say that since english is not my primary language, maybe I'm on the same boat as you. I can help with script too.

Hey, BlackMage!

Thank you for the first reply ^^

A writer that can map too sure would help a lot. I don't really mind that English is not your primary language (anyone with a better understanding than me is more than welcome  :)  )

I'll send you more details later.

Wouldn't mind helping out as a mapper and a spellchecker, English being my native language. I would offer to do art, but I'm slightly busy with the contest right now, and for the next several days.

When you say 'modern tiles', what did you have in mind exactly? RMWeb Resource Pack or, say, custom?

I'm an alright writer. Can't script-write very well, but am good at brainstorming. I am American, so English is my native language, so I can help there. On top of that, I've watched the first 5 seasons in their entirety. Big fan. 

Check out my work here: https://www.fictionpress.com/u/214890/Miles-Montgomery

Not trying to brag, or get readers, just letting you see samples of my work. :)

If you also need voice actors, I'd be willing to play a villain. I don't have the best mic in the world, but it'd be fun. :)

Let's face it, my mic sucks. It's part of the laptop and I have no headphones with a mic. But if you're just doing this for fun/free, it'd still be fun.

Voice acting sure would be nice! I wanted to voice too :D

And just like you, I don't have a decent mic xD

But still, I'll think about it.

Bumping this. This is turning out to be a great project. We really need an artist and another mapper. If you're out there, and willing to help, we could use you. :)

Just thought I'd throw this out there. If there's any animators out there who could maybe make CGI scenes for this game, feel free to contact us. We'd like to take this game the distance. We're passionate about this game and it's already looking to be huge.

Unfortunately, all services would have to be free, as Digimon is copyrighted, and we can't make the game commercial to be able to give royalties.

Well, today is the project's birthday! It's being fantastic to work on this game for 1 month so far. :D

A supporter, Ozone, has sent us a logo as a gift. Thank you a lot, Ozone!

I also updated the topic with a full-size screenshot this time.

Now it's time for a great announcement: our Demo it's about to be released!

We'll let you get a glimpse of how great this project is turning out.

The demo will be released on August 30. Keep this date in mind and stay tuned for news!

And, as always, we're still taking applications. If you (really) want to help and make part of this project, it's not too late to apply for one of the remaining jobs.

Thanks :)

I hope you all are keeping safe. <3 If you need a shoulder or an ear, I have two of both and am more than willing to listen & support you! Times are weird.
My dad, super frustrated by seclusion, asking me how I live like this. I shrug. "It helps to not like what is outside."
Apparently it's not just people who are hit by corona virus. My phone has set itself to English language on its own. Not that I'm complaining... :D
I got a new computer and can't find my product activation key for MV, what do I do ;-;
