    @HawkZombie and @Arin - thank you both so much for taking the time to play and stream my lil' demo, it means a lot to me! I've been doing my best to address and correct/balance any issues with combat (it seriously is a pain in the butt), and I'm trying to make sure that the quest dialogue from characters will give enough hints without seeming too direct.

    For anyone else who has played my demo, please be sure to let me know of any bugs/feedback/suggestions here!B):thumbsup-right:

    I Just finished downloading it but I'll be without internet for the next 24-48hrs due to switching providers (except on my phone but to do a full feedback with auto-correct.... :o) so you'll hear my opinion sometime after the weekend :)

    UPDATE (8/23/2019):
    Went ahead and did some more work on the demo ('climbing' sprites for the well section, clearer hints on where to find Jacen for Hide-and-Seek, and a few other things) because why not. Updated link below!

    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 talk to them again! I'm not hiding stuff in barrels or boxes (for now), just those nice wooden and steel chests.

    :popcorn:WINDOWS LINK: ENJOY THE DEMO!:popcorn:

    BadSeed is a good friend of mine, and when she told me her demo was going live--I couldn't wait to finally try it out!

    It's a project of love--you can tell this from the opening all the way to the end. My favorite location has to be the town of Bhokse. The place is just booming with life--something I enjoy in a town. There's also... a special bee there, y'all should go talk to him, no spoilers but he's my favorite character ;)

    Combat is very straightforward--it's a double-edged sword in that regard. It's easy to grasp, but it's also not incredibly challenging--however, being that this is a preview of what's to come, am pretty sure it'll get tough.

    Maps are very pretty, I do love the cavern maps and I love the underwater cavern the most. I think with a bit more detail, the maps would be phenomenal moreso than they are now--but they are a really good sight to see.

    Conversations are enjoyable, but gosh... maybe it's just me, but I really want to follow these NPC's more. I hope later down the road, there's gonna time with them, and more time to develop them. I feel these NPCs are just waiting to tell us a silly story.

    Fortunately for me--I'd been witness to a lot of Seed's development over the months, so I plowed through it with my memory... but to be honest.. a lot changed in such a short period of time. I was impressed by how much had changed since the last time I had seen it.

    Keep it up, girl! Make this happen!

    @samkfj - thanks so much for the words of support and encouragement. If memory serves (lol old person joke) you and @Finnuval were pretty much the first couple of people I got to know when I joined the forum back in January. I want to make DISHARMONIA the best it can be, so you can be sure I'll do my damnedest! ;):thumbsup-right:

    Just a fun little bump with a map of the next area, the Kovek Region. There will be LOTS of things to do here, and plenty of interesting characters to meet. Also it never fails to make me smile just how much can be done with Yanfly's Doodads:

    *sigh* Once again, I find myself wondering about my title screen. What do you guys think? Stick with the solid black background, or add some kind of design?
    And yes, that's a new windowskin I found, made by @Zero2505

    keep it black. If you do want to spice it up ad a little something logo-wise or something but no 'background'. it does nothing favorable to the lettering (which is awesome btw)

    @HawkZombie did a great job on the lettering, I agree. And what could I add logo-wise?

    Honestly I don't know haha
    Is there any symbol or item (etc.) in game that holds a significant story value... you might make a stylized version of that into a logo... I would need some thought but it would be better then crowding the background, imo.

    Still, solid black is better then that mist in my opinion :)

    I think the solid black is good too, but I worry about having too much open space, I guess. >_>
    What if I faded the 'mist' to where it's just barely visible?
