    So... I won't be finishing my demo in time for the Birthday event, but I am still working on it, and it will be released once finished and quality-checked. This week has been bad and good - good because the hubby and I have started going to the gym, bad because I came down with a stomach bug out of nowhere. >_>

    Well, you tried... that's all that matters :) Better luck next year, besides working on your game is what your goal is, the event is just a side-goal :)

    Hope the stomach bug gets squashed soon though.

    Hey guys! Just wanted to give the thread a quick update - I haven't given up on things, just needed a little break! I've added a special (and much smaller) side project that I can switch to so I don't get burned out again while working on DISHARMONIA. :blush::thumbsup-right:

    I am a stubborn red-head (surprise surprise!) and usually end up letting myself get to the point of near suffocation before I realize I need to breathe, lol.

    Oh, I haven't forgotten. Things have been pretty good lately; I had an eye exam today and I'm happy to be back in contact lenses. :rock-left::D:rock-right:

    Hey guys! Just wanted to drop a little update: I'm still working on my demo, been making little tweaks here and there. My quest log plugin works, the merging event for my bosses work (SO happy about this), and I'm finally starting to see the finish line. Here's the final title screen for you all to ogle; done by @HawkZombie B):thumbsup-right:

    FINALLY!
    :2k31:
    My demo is finished, and I have a (Windows) link for download! I will be adding another link for Mac users as well, fear not.B):thumbsup-right:

    No, there isn't a credits scene yet (there will be a proper one in the finished first Chapter), and I am certainly not claiming I've done this project all by my lonesome. Many, many amazing individuals have helped in more ways than one. As I mention in the demo's introduction, please contact me here or in PMs to let me know of bugs, errors, or any suggestions you may have. Instead of giving it an ending, I've left the demo open so that you can just run around (to find bugs!) even after finishing it.

    Which brings me to this (yes, I know, TL;DR that mess, Seed!):
    The controls are basic for both keyboard and controller (no fancy settings).
    There will be a proper Combat/Gameplay tutorial in the finished Chapter.
    The World Map and Quest Journal are just pretty icons in your inventory (for now).
    Talk to everyone, and then talk to them again! I'm not hiding stuff in barrels or boxes (for now), just those nice wooden and steel chests.

    If you like watching people stream RPG Maker Let's Plays, check out HawkZombie - he did a stream of my demo (a previous version), and others, as well as finished RPG Maker games, on Twitch! Steel and Teal of StudioBlue will also be doing a review (TBA)!

    Not a bad little demo. I enjoyed it! It wasn't perfect, sure, but there is a LOT of potential here and I can't wait to see what Fel comes up with.

    Hi, Fel! Like I said before, great job on the game and I really loved how far this game project has come. I recently managed to do a full livestream of Fel's game and here is my personal critiques on it:

    I'll start with the pros. There is a lot of potential for a great title here. Even in the very little that I played, without spoiling anything major, characters seemed to have their own voices, their own methodology, their own way of thinking, and everyone felt unique (although some tropes and cliches got a bit overused for my own personal taste). Sprites are wonderfully done with the 2 tile high instead of the chibi 1 tile high. Maps are beautifully done with polish crested in every detail. The World Map takes on a wonderful Chrono Trigger style where the map zooms out and the chibi sprites are shrunk to give the feeling that the world is much more grand in scale than it actually is. Maps are RTP right now but I talk with Fel every day and she said she is currently in the process of converting everything over to FSN, so kudos on that! There are planned Side Quests for the game so there is always something to do and something to explore in the world.

    Now I'll move to the cons. When I played through, my biggest gripe was how...easy the combat was. I like a bit of challenge with my game but the final boss of the demo ended up being a bit too underwhelming for my taste. There were a lot of convenience errors as well, like not having an option to not move forward off a map which takes you all the way back to the beginning. Combat was probably the biggest killer of all, and it was very very basic without very much strategy at all: simply push the Attack button, use a couple of skills, and decimate everything. The enemies in the beginning of the area were a bit too tanky personally, but that's because I have balanced and rebalanced and rebalanced the heck out of my game for months now trying to find the perfect numbers. There was also a few too obscure things that players could easily miss without a clear sense of direction. These are all easily remedied however.

    So overall, more good than bad, and the bad is easily fixable. I would give this a solid B+. It has a great load of potential, but Fel needs to work on hammering the overall balancing of the game, project a better sense of clarity and "handholding", and fix just a few of the bugs that made themselves apparent when I played through the game.

    Great job, Fel! <3
