Well, with the release of SRPG Studio pretty much doing this and more and as well at the recent revelation of this, I hate to say I am cancelling this project- I also won't be releasing what was finished as a safety precaution (also, the project isn't in a usable state as is, anyway). I am sorry if I have given everyone's hopes up on this.
@JtheDuelist, That's okay man. I understand that this project wasn't always the main focus of your work and if it needs to be dropped for you to move on with other projects I support that decision. Thank you for updating all of the people on this thread as that is a brave thing to do that takes some courage. I hope you keep going on strong and making projects that you love.
I'm starting to wonder if I should go the Half Minute Hero route with my game. The character's main weapon is logistically way too strong. So I can't really let the player continuously grow it.... But if they had to build it up each time like HMH, that could work. Also it lets me take advantage of my randomly generated maps so much more. Hmm... This could work!
