Evernight, a shard of Dynasthir quite unlike any other. Dynasthir as a world is like a patchwork. Most of the shards are connected by physical threads. From place to place. Evernight is different. Evernight is bound to the concept of "forest". While traversing any forest in Dynasthir, you might suddenly find yourself in Evernight. Many a traveler has come before you. But they were all consumed. Foreword Evernight aims to be a difficult but fair game, full of exploration and intense and interesting combat encounters. It's a dark and twisted fantasy world that attempts to impose an atmosphere of extreme struggle and dispair while giving players that lush sense of archivement of overcoming and figuring things out on their own. NEW Download V0.6 here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxxcWwkV7p-8SmRTR2kxS25qNzg/view?usp=sharing OLD Download V0.59 from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxxcWwkV7p-8OElTWHU2bElhQmc/view?usp=sharing - Game + hotfix for controllers and a small NG+ fix Screenshots Spoiler Spoiler Features Spoiler Spoiler *Obscure world - Through actions and their order, rather than from complex dialog *Explore and interpret - Piecing together the lore from bits and pieces around the world *Unlockable skins - Playable skins you can find through exploration *Action Battle System - Borrowing the power of XAS *EnemyAI - Enemy AI knows when you heal, hit or is low on stamina(amongst other things) be careful! *Interesting and challenging bosses - Patterns and functions that while punishing are mostly fair. Be ready for sacrifices! *Unique Healing system - Will you gather the one time use heals? Or dare you venture into the dangerous world to to find them, and then returnst to the start to combine them into refillable healing item?. The choice is yours *Unlimited Ng+ - If you can't get enough. Heavily tied to the story and lore *Smithing - Simple yet effective *Monster capture - Some monsters can only be captured, not killed. Enjoy! *Parralax mapping *Diagonal movement Time & the game Spoiler Spoiler The game's first Ng+ could take anywhere between 25 minutes to five hours. I would expect the latter, however it is a very speedrunner friendly game IF you know your way around it. Should you like it, subsequent Ng+es up to three has some significant surprises and lore points. The nature of the forest is tied to the Ng+ function. Technical Spoiler Spoiler Reccomended you play with an Xinput controller. Just feels best. Default controls are a bit odd at first but feels good when you get used to them. End word Spoiler Spoiler I hope you will enjoy Evernight as much as I enjoy making it. It's been one helluva ride & I spend many long days and nights with it. Evernight is loosely based upon my Pen & Paper roleplaying setting Dynasthir. I've taken inspiration from games such as Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, The Ys Games, The Legend of Zelda to some extent with my own wicked ideas thrown into the mix.
