    "Once there were life and light.
    This world... so peaceful it was.
    Our everlasting princess reigned fair and wise and did not age nor die.

    But at this one day, without premonition, without farewell...
    ...she disappeared.

    Thereupon the light was gone.
    And only darkness remained."


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]
    The story takes part in two different worlds. One of them is the world we all live in.
    So does Josh together with his father and his brother Alex. Josh loves videogames and books and isn't much interested in his own reality.
    But his father disapproves this and blames his son. This became worse as their mother died.
    But then on one day Josh finds a game in a small shop. It has no real cover and only one word is written on the CD-case.
    Erayu - the games title. Josh takes the game home and starts playing.


    [​IMG]

    The other world is called Erayu. It's the games world, where once an immortal princess reigned. But one day she disappeared and so seems the light.
    Some places in that world are fallen into darkness and more followed soon. One, who gets into that darkness never returns; not alive nor dead. As if he never existed.
    When the game starts, one plays a boy, who awakes among some travelers.
    His memories are gone and so he tries to find his way through a world he can't remember.

    [​IMG]
    Main characters
    [​IMG]
    Name: Josh
    Age: 14
    He spends much time reading books and playing videogames.
    He is a bit shy and his only real friend is Naru.
    [​IMG]
    Name: Unknown
    Age: probably 13 - 14
    He doesn't remember anything. Nor his name.
    So the only thing he can do, is exploring the world he forgot.

    [​IMG]
    Secondary characters
    [​IMG]
    Name: Alex
    Age: 12
    As his brother he reads a lot and is a calm person.
    Their father favours him and often tells him not to waste his time like his brother does.
    Alex tries to stay neutral because he understands his father and also Josh.
    He isn't very happy about that situation, but tries to keep domestic peace.

    [​IMG]
    Name: Jeremiah
    Age: 43
    Josh's and Alex's father.
    Since his wife died, he isn't the same person anymore. He no longer has any contact to his family
    and spends his time mostly working. He can't understand Josh's passion for games and tries
    to keep him away from them.

    [​IMG]
    Name: Naru
    Age: 14
    His parents are from Japan but he as himself never was there.
    Josh is his best friend and togehther they are talking a lot about
    games. He plans to become a developer someday.


    [​IMG]

    The gameplay is split into two parts.
    The first is to simply follow Josh's storyline through his days. Here you won't have any spectacular mechanics.

    The second part is the game Josh plays.
    In the world of Erayu the gameplay is similar to a Point and Click Adventure.


    Therefore you have:

    Ringmenu
    [​IMG]
    Every object you can interact with will open a small ring-menu.
    Here you can choose what you want to do with that object.

    Hints
    [​IMG]
    By pressing SHIFT you will see every interesting object or exit on the map.

    Combining
    [​IMG]
    You can combine objects either with other objects on the map or objects in your inventory. You can also try to just use them for various effects.

    Journal
    [​IMG]
    In your journal you can read what happened and what you have to do next.


    [​IMG]

    Collectables
    [​IMG]
    There are different items, which are unnecessary for the game itself but will unlock
    some artworks in the main menu's gallery.

    Savegames
    [​IMG]
    This picture is a savegame (and yes, at some point in development it worked.... but is now probably not compatible anymore... whatever. The ones the game makes are working :p)
    The savegames are saved as png.files, which are created ingame. On them you will see:

    - a picture of your current location
    - your collectables
    - your playtime

    Sometimes you will get some special pictures. So if anything weird happened
    you should consider saving your game. The picture is shown in the savemenu and
    is also available in the games folder. (feel free to use it as signature or anything else : D )

    ^//^ Thank you both. I'm glad you like it.

    @Ruby:
    It's a lot of work to translate everything, so it will take a while complete the rest : (
    Though the first two chapters are available in english.

    Oh my goodness! The mapping in this game looks so cute! The image of the camp atop the mountain is gorgeous to look at.

    I'll be certain to give this a try! :3

    @KrishGM

    Thank you :3

    The ring menu is made by me. And almost only with events. : D

    What save system exactly do you mean? (the savegame pictures? Or the ingame menu?)

    The ingame menus are also made with events. The script for the savegame pictures is from Rataime... but sadly I don't know anymore where I found it : (

    @Bitterbug:

    Thanks for the nice comment :3

    I hope you'll like it.

    Dear Lucy:

    GET SOMEONE TO HELP YOU WITH THE TEXT POST HASTE! It's such a waste of potential!

    The game looked to have the potential to be at LEAST a solid experience, but it really broke down due to the unintentionally funny use of English. With that part fixed it could have been a nice game, but I could not go through with it as it was.

    Aside from the broken English, I have few issues (of what I saw):

    -The game's "plot" seems like a very stock and tired thing, but then again it may be too early to say. I enjoyed the visuals quite a bit, but some maps feel TOO cluttered and are hard to navigate as a result.

    -The disabling of dashign and the slight delay to menus also make interaction a slow and sometimes annoying business.

    If you ever get the text fixed I would be ready to give it a whirl. As it is I think it breaks the game's feel too much, I could not take it seriously at all. More feedback as I come across it in the video.

    Yeah, I know about the bad english. I had someone to translate it, but the result is as "good" as my own try *sigh*

    It's not that easy if it's not you'r first language. (though I didn't thought it would be that difficult) xD

    And untill now I didn't find someone who speaks english as well as german.

    I recommend to play with the mouse. Because it's more intuitive : D
    Point n Click controlls just with keaboard are a bad thing.

    You're right. I'll delete some of the clutter °^°

    Thanks for your try. I'll watch the video and see what I can do to make it better. :)

    Sooo...... here we go!

    All five chapters have been translated. (Not by myself this time xD)

    So the demo is finally at the same progress as the German version. \o/

    A lot has changed. The keyboard controls are completely gone. They caused too many bugs and problems.

    Therefore the game has now full mouse support. (Tested over and over and over again @.@ )

    Also the first chapter has changed a bit to be a bit more logical.

    And last but not least. The game includes a complete walkthrough now. (Not very well written, but helpfull :s )

    So, have fun and leave some feedback :3

    Lucy ❆


    Edit

    If you played yet, you sould've encountered an error message while saving.

    I fixed that bug, so if you redownload the game again you will be able to save and load again :3

    Sorry for that ._.

    Corrected translation and progress

    Hey gamers o/

    I've uploaded a new version. It includes a corrected translation.

    Also I want to tell you that I'm currently working on the end of the game.

    The last part will contain a lot of story, some gameplay and two different endigs.

    I hope I can finish the game till the end of the year. So stay tuned! :D

    Why two endings?

    Because there is no right way to end this story. There are two equal possibilities and you should decide, which one you whish to see.

    (But the choice for it is at the end of the game. So you still can reload and watch the second if you whish so :) )

    Have fun o/

    I know you are waiting for the full version ;D

    I think I can maybe manage to finish the game before January, but then the last
    part has to be translated and tested etc.
    So the final English release will take some more time.

    Most of the last chapter and the first ending is done.
    All that is left is the second ending and the credits.

    So... preemptively...
    Have a great new year!
    And stay tuned! :D

    Update 1.1


    A huge thanks goes to shayoko from rmn (I see, here is one too, but don't know if they are the same person xD), who did a great job and corrected the translation. ❤

    Also:

    - There were some impassibility errors, that are now fixed.
    - More German leftovers are fixed
    - A bug, that could result in a gamebreaker at the mill is fixed
    - The sword in the swamp is moved, so you don't have to walk all the way back anymore

    That's everything for now.
    Have a nice day.
    Enjoy the game.
    And leave some feedback. The more you give feedback the more I now where the game has it's problems. :3

    - Lucy (⌒.⌒)☆

    Update 1.1.1
    Another mini-update, which fixes a logic issue with the snowmen puzzle.


    It wasn't possible to solve the puzzle without walkthrough, so I fixed it now :3


    Have fun °u°/)
