Flippin' finally found enough inspiration to finish the updated bust for the final boss. It'll be a treat for all those hentai tentacle porn fans. Hmm... Now that escalia-ated quickly.

I just love the style of your game. Can you tell me which tilesets did you use?

Hello BCj :)

Just joined the forums (Long time RPG Maker user, but never been to the forums.....) and sort of found my way to this little project. I am impressed with the current demo, Kudos to you for the effort put into it.

Was a pleasure to play, looking forward to seeing it continue. :smile:

Hello all, it's been a long long while. Loads of stuff happened (my mother got severely ill (she's in remission now thankfully), I had to have several surgeries, and I still have one coming). However, I have resumed work on Escalia again slowly.

Here's some things I have been working on. It's mainly updates of some scripts and additions I wasn't happy with.

I've been tinkering with a new lightning system which is a lot more dynamic (does require RGD).


I also got the water tiles animated:



And got a weather script ported to VX Ace


Animated Battlebacks


I've been tinkering with a visual novel style for the busts instead:

(Yes there are differences in the text from the IGMC version, can you spot them all? :D)

It's not as noticable since Caelmor and Alexis don't change faces, but the faces can change every message, and even mid-sentence.
Quick sample:


And Olivia has a new face.


And some other minor graphical overhauls.

That being said, since quite a lot has changed so far, I'm looking for beta testers. I'm also looking for people to spar with for (minor) storyline ideas, as I got a bit of a writer's block at the moment. I know where I want to go with the story, but the steps in-between are not so easy to flesh out, so if you have any ideas for mini storylines, quests or anything you'd like to see, poke me and I'll see if I can add it. In due time I'm also looking for people to help with tiles and an OST. Some of the music I've been using needs to be replaced in the future, because the terms have changed.

Thank you Luzi! I really dig your UI/Graphical artstyle by the way, Eternal Dawn and Revenant Gods look gorgeous :)

Hello all,
Originally I was planning to upload the new beta this week, but seeing as I have to undergo an emergency eye surgery tomorrow (my retina is unstable/loosened) I have decided to postpone the beta release seeing as I still have to sort out some bugs/implementations first, and I'd rather not rush-upload something today that isn't completely ready-for-testing. It'd also be hard for me to reply to feedback or questions seeing as I won't be able to see properly for a few weeks.
That said, the beta is coming, and I'd love for people to tst it out in about 4 weeks time, when I should be mostly recovered.

Hello all, I'm about 4 weeks post-op now. Sadly my eye was quite bruised/damaged during the surgeyr and my sight still isn't doing well (seeing double, crooked and some deformation) and I'm afraid I need more time before I can start work. Been a hard month for me. Still hoping it'll recover, even if partially.

@BCj Been following this in the shadows for a long time (actually made references to the slime soup in most of my games :p) and just wanted to wish you a quick recovery and the best of the best. The curve ball that is the quest for said soup is a RPG classic for me at this point and can't wait to try the new version, loving EVERYTHING you overhauled/added on it. Thank you for Escalia, it's an inspiration to me, and as I said, hope you get well soon, but don't rush it :kaoluv:

Whoa, that's actually very sweet that someone got touched by the project in such a way. Makas (and his obsession with all things slimy) was a pleasure to work on. BCj and I were discussing his future story arc (among many other things), and I'm sure that in later versions of the game this boy is going places, so to say. Even as a (kind of) comic relief character, he does bring a lot of dynamic into many conversations between him and the two main chicks. So yeah, Makas for president, y'all!

Take your time, BCj. Your recovery is your first priority.
And yes, I'll look forward to the updates of this project.

That's so lovely to hear! I'm so happy that Escalia inspired other people as well. What games have you made, if I may ask?
And yes, as eDeus said, Makas will play a bigger role in the upcoming game, and I'm sure you'll love his addition :) there might even be more slime-related stuff!


Recovery is still going slow, I have another checkup the 13th, hoping for some good news. And in due times, new glasses/contacts! I sooo need them. My prescription is a tad off due to the surgery.

@BCj Let's hear those good news! As for my games, they are not released :aswt: but as most of my friends who play them have played Escalia they get the joke (the finished one is some kind of classic jrpg mixed with pokemon-like flow, if that makes sense) :kaopride: More slime-related stuff is what makes me get up in the morning :kaojoy: Makas for king!

Have played IGMC version before

So let's talk about the experience of playing this game

First of all, this game is very special and unique. Why do you say that?

Because in the battle system of this game, its defense mechanism is very special

Because players can only use it once during the entire battle.

This is testing the wisdom of the players and the ability to respond and respond in the field.

How to use defense mechanisms well This is a science

Next The protagonist of the game Fabulous genius daughter Fayhe Corin

Plays a quite important role in this game battle

It ’s very important to restore and restore the team ’s MP and HP.

Looking forward to the release of version 1.1

Because I'm curious what role will he play in this game? XD

A young person is brave and often hastily makes decisions. Heir to the heritage of the famous hunter.
