Developer's note
I’m Kevin, an independent game developer working on my game and passion project Eniko: Ghosts Of Grace.

Eniko: Ghosts Of Grace is a story-rich action adventure rpg that pays hommage to jrpg games and 90's gaming through it's unique retro 2.5D pixel art look, but is bold and refreshing enough to carve it's own path.

A demo will be released Q4 2021 and is currently being tested!


Synopsis
The great Fenrir Wars lay in the past but in Belrynna, the heroics of the war's Champions is celebrated zealously in the Arena. Livia is a promising young Warrior training at Zigmond Academy. Gusty but ambitious, she will both have to fight the mighty Fenrir in the Arena and deal with the political games outside the Arena. Will Livia be able to climb the ranks and become a champion of the Arena? After a fateful encounter, everything she believes in will be put to the test.

Join Livia on her adventure through a tale that explores what it means to be family, betrayal versus loyalty and the long-term effects of indoctrination and a brutal war on society.

Closing Words/Q&A
When will the game be released?
Undecided. A demo will be released Q4 2021.

Will this game be commercial?
Yes, i'm planning to sell on Itch.io, Steam, GameJolt, RPG Maker selling platforms, ...

I want to be involved in the creation, is this possible? Can I contact you?
I'm open to any suggestions, ideas etc. Send a PM and who knows what comes of it? I am mainly looking for someone who can help with the story, script and dialogues. The story is super important to me and actually the main reason for this game. However, I'm not a native English speaker and with so many aspects of building a game, it would be great to have someone who can build on my story and character ideas and help them come to life.

What more can I expect in the coming time?
This thread should evolve a lot over the next months. I'm working on custom character art, I'm planning on sharing the OST soon and of course more gameplay info, screenshots and updates.

I'm also getting a lot of questions regarding the use of the MV3D plugin. I'm planning to start making MV3D guides and tutorials to explain everything how it's done. Let's just hope I find the time :aswt:

"I'm planning to release a demo at the end of Q1 2020 and build on it from there. "

I'm sure you mean 2021. Will keep an eye out for the demo.
Looks good. I like the 3d visual style. I don't know how it plays so I'll have to wait till the demo to see.

Yaay! I dig the clumsy-lookin' 3D environments! Also, story premise seems pretty intriguing! Will keep watching. :biggrin:

Thanks! ^^ Funny how people's eye catches those boats so often. The perspective is off so that's why they look a bit funky, I'l replace them with a custom version at one point. I do like the floating "animation" though. or do you mean the bigger ships in the back?

Yaay! I dig the clumsy-lookin' 3D environments! Also, story premise seems pretty intriguing! Will keep watching. :biggrin:
Wooh! I totally agree! I know some things are looking a bit clumsy or quirky but most off it adds to the character of the game imo, i love it ^^ Story is what I'm excited about the most. I kept the story a bit vague and superficial in the post, but once I released a demo I can dig deeper into that in posts.

This is outstanding btw. It's amazing to see someone do something so unique with a 2D engine. I'd love to play it and test it out if you ever need it :)

Thank you a whole bunch @XyphienLLC ! It's alway a big step to present your ideas to the "outside world", so far the reactions have been very positive and it's all a bit overwhelming, but it motivates me hugely to deliver :)

I'll definitely need some playtesters before releasing a demo. If you're up for that, you can follow the itch.io, Facebook page or Twitter as I'll announce it there.

I like that Octopath Traveler-esque nostalgic vibe. Definitely keeping my eye on this.

Thank you for your reply :) I only learned about Octopath Traveler graphics's after I started this project but I agree, that game has very similar graphci style (albeit more professiona/high-budget).

I have shared a devlog post on itch.io about the game, read it here!

The main new thing is the character art that the talented @Kato-A is making for the game. The finished up version will be ready soon, but here's a preview of Livia's character art:

Oh, also, things I really like: your font, your menus, and the fact that (from what I can see) you buy licenses to acquire skills! :biggrin:

@alice_gristle thanks ^^ and correct! Buying licenses is one of the ays to improve your stats and skills. At some point I'll write a blogpost or make a video explaining the systems in the game.

Everything's looking great! FFXII-esque license board got my hyped actually! : D

The 3D look sets this apart from many other titles already, but everything looks very polished otherwise too.

@orange~ Thank you! :LZSproud: I also always loved FF XII's system.The system in Eniko is not a copy, but it definitely is inspired by. My main goal for the 3D was so that I could build location that feel new and not another rtp copy. If you already know how a game will look and feel after playing 2 minutes, it takes a lot away from the magic. Custom tilesets or my approach here are two ways to break that mold.

The first piece of character art is finished! Big thanks to @Kato-A ! I was also able to update the banner because of it and I'm very happy with the result :)

Every once in a while I keep forgetting MZ added an Attack Skill Trait you can use to set the basic attack of an Actor to something else.
