Story and Gameplay
 ​
A. Story (Synopsis)

          An university student and a magic user, Senjutsu Minerva (19 years old), was forced to participate the Magus Survival Game. Therefore, she must has a duel with other Magus to survive in five months (Magus: magic users; every magic users have one or two unique magic).
          But, Senjutsu Minerva is doubt. Because she doesn't want to murder anyone or hurt anyone as she understood when someone was hurt by the other, or when loss the other.
          She decided to enter the Magus Survival Game and has a group because of her beloved older sister (nee-san), Nirvana Violet Senjutsu, who is Magus too. "As long as nee-san didn't murder any innocent Magus, or have a selfish desire, I will join you", that's her reason. Yes, Magus didn't prohibited to make a group, a group of Magus to survive.
          Who will be survive in the Magus Survival Game? Will Senjutsu Minerva murder anyone? But as a philosopher, what is her reason? What will the winner ask as the prize for the Magus Survival Game? Those questions will be answered in the game and the end of this game.



B. Gameplay: story progression
• How to finish the game (the goal)          You, as player, can finish this game if you can defeat every Magus who attack your protagonist (your characters). Yes, every episode has different protagonist (see episode list above). So you need to be able to manage well every protagonist with their unique ability (Manage well: manage the duel team member to be able to defeat the Magus, who attack your protagonist's team. And manage who will be stronger in every your leveling up effort).
          But you need to complete the story, in every episode, before you can have the duel with the Magus. You doesn't need
to read every dialogues, you can skip them (if sometimes you are not interested with the summary of the dialogue or play this game primary for the duel). So think about anime Gintam*, for example. The anime tell us the story of the characters before they have a duel (the duel not so often, though).
          The dialogue is over, but there isn't any Magus who attack my protagonist; what must I do? Simpily, read the character's To Do List. You will see to do list, and do it to go to the next necessary dialogue (necessary to complete the story, in the episode).
         So yes, you will experiencing different character with his or her story. What you read on the synopsis above is one character's story. But every character's story is connected. So think about anime or manga; sometimes you didn't watch or read the main character's story. But, the supporter character's story is connected with the main character's story.




• uNPCs focus          You can skip every unnecessary NPCs for finish the game. What is unnecessary NPCs? Every NPCs which you don't need to meet for finish this game because your character's To Do List did not mention them.
          Think the unnecessary NPCs as random people who passed you when you walking on the street, on your life. So when your character talk with them, they will talk about their life, the government, or anything. But, in this game, their subject always has a relation with the moral issue in your character's town. I call this uNPCs focus. And every episode has different moral issue to enrich and practice
the philosophy subjects in this game.
          So, the uNPCs focus has nothing to do with the story? It depends on you. You can get an argument note. And when you in the twelfth episode, you can choose how to defeat the Magus who attack your character: duel, or go to the court. If you choose to go to the court, definitely you will need the argument notes. You must collect every argument note if now you decide to choose to go to the court for the twelfth episode.



• The Argument Notes Minigame / side quest mechanism
          Will be explained in the twelfth episode's update.

• Philosophy focus

          If a blue background message appear, it mean you are facing a philosophy discussion and that's mean you are not facing a fiction anymore.
          You can get an argument note too after the philosophy discussion. And as I mentioned before, you must collect all of the argument notes if you are planning to go to the court in the twelfth episode.
     • What is philosophy?
          There are many definitions about philosophy but what I mean in this game is: philosophy is about daily life common problems, actually (for example, think about, how can I know I was right?). Yes, but philosophy is more deeper than that (it is discuss about every "I'm doubt I was right" event! So, doesn't talk just one case. But case by case in common).
          I think my definition is not proper definiton about philosophy but at least it could be a good start to know about what is philosophy. And what could
you dealing in this game.



C. Gameplay: for the duel
• Magic          Magic drains energy, so your protagonist's magic is limited: you can use magic just for two times in each battle. This depends on who is your protagonist, though. So there are an exceptions.
          Magic also has a condition to use. For example, Senjutsu Minerva need to know the opponent precise location (for example: in front of her?) before she can use her magic: Reading Mind. This affect the story and sometimes this affect in the duel: your protagonist could not use their magic if they have a duel with a Magus who can handle their magic's condition.
          And the magic itself definitely affect the duel: if your protagonist can read your oppenent's mind, it could be easy for them to avoid your opponent's attacks!, for example.
          Because of the magic is limited and has a condition to use: how often you will use the magic? Will you using your magic every duel? Build your own tactic to defeat the Magus!




• Mastery Level (MLvl)          Every protagonist has a grade and their mastery level of their techniques :) magic or just ordinary fighting techniques; Punch, for example). Yup, the grade is the level of your protagonist. So whenever your protagonist up their grade, probably, you will get a new technique. And you need definite mastery level to be able to use the technique.
          How to up the mastery level? Every time you win a duel, you will get a score. Then find this duel support NPC:
          [IMG]http://www.rudisihabudi.tk/images/IT-M/pic_17.png[/IMG]Uhm. Hello.

          And give your score to up the mastery level of your desire technique. Or just keep your score high and play with the provided techniques: every technique that don't need to up your mastery level to be able to use it. It's up to you, choose your own challenging gaming experience!




• Online Play: Group and Couple System          In the online areas, the group or the couple system is functional. Sometimes you need to join a group to finish a side quest and get a reward for stronger your protagonist. You need to join a group, sometimes, because you could not finish the side quest in the online area by yourself; you need another player too (the other players's information, to be exact; or probably the other player's goods).
          Will you playing online for stronger your protagonist, or just use your default weapon?

A. Story

• New playable character: Kiken Kotori

     • Background: how Kiken Kotori became sadistic girl
          Kiken Kotori was active kid, cool, kind, and care with others. Everyone didn't surprise if someone likes her. Even every people who ever live around Senjutsu family ever said, "You don't have a friend? Talk with Kotori!" (in fact, Kiken Kotori has many friends, childs even adults). And she used to played with Senjutsu Minerva who really quiet little girl (and cute!) and didn't have any friend, except, her beloved older sister (her nee-san), Nirvana Violet Senjutsu.
          But.. Kotori's parents really different with their daughter. Her parents didn't care with others even her mother has sadistic personality. When her parents back from a very long vacation (their vacation just after Kotori's birth), her parents showed that the world can be really fun, in sadistic terms. Everyday Kotori was bullied by her own parents, even was persuaded (and forced) to enjoy sadistic things by her mother, Senjutsu Kiken. As the result, Kiken Kotori, sometimes, enjoy to see blood from the others, also when the others suffered (including animal):
          No more cats, but the cat's corpse with full of blood is cute!
         The other results, Kiken Kotori murdered her own parents (who she thought as her enemies) in sadistic way. And she is very pessimistic with the word "love" or any kind of it (because her parents tends to say, "This is our love for you. So, listen, Kotori!!"). And her further experience showed that love is absurd (non-sense..).
     • Magic
          Kiken Kotori's magic is transfrom any kind of bringable things into very heavy form (think of metal, but stonger). Then, sharpen its corners. So, when she don't has a knife, she can use a pen!
          She calls her magic, "Sharpen Gift" (Yes, her magic is suitable with her personality which sometimes :) unpredictable), need to torment the other as soon as possible and in very sadistic way: slowy but sure..).
          The consequence is, she needs any bringable things whenever entering a Magus Duel. Or just fight as ordinary people. So her magic is useless without any or many "weapons" (any bringable things); her magic is more limited than others (as the condition, she can transform bringable thing just in 45 minutes and of course depends on her energy).
          But, because of her magical weapons is stronger than metal, she could use her magical weapons as a great armours: slash-resistance or bullet-resistance, for example. She calls this power, "Metal Defense".




• New playable character: Cloyd Yale

     • Magic
          He hasn't any magic. He just ordinary people. But he has antique big sword which heritage from his father; the sword is very very heavy, and sharp. He calls it, "The Red Sword".
          The consequence is, he only could attack an opponent (quickly) in the close range. But his attack damage is very big once succesful.
          The other consequence, he could not move fast, so he easily being hurt. But, he can use his sword as a strong defense.
     • Comparison
          This just as comparison for better understanding about the playable characters's abilities, and the comparison doesn't mean it is the good strategy to win the duel.
          With Kiken Kotori, Cloyd Yale could be the defender and the attacks spicer. Because both of his attack and his defense are doubled than Kotori's. And Kotori could be the good (fast and strong enough) attacker due to her magic.
          Against Kotori, once Kotori attacks, and her move locked, Yale could be the winner.




• Theme: Is There, Love?

          The theme is about relationship between Kiken Kotori and Cloyd Yale. How they are meet, dating at the first time, and helping each other in the Magus Duel facing Ukai Ryutai. In short, their love story. ^~^
          And their love story will answer one question: is there, love?




• Quotes

          Kiken Kotori:
...
          I said it is illusion, because, actually, everyone just think, then behave based their self-interest. In other word, everyone is egoist.
          There isn't people action that solely for the other interest or the other needs. Therefore, love, or any kind of it, doesn't exist.
...
          Therefore, if his sweetheart no longer fulfill his self-interest, his sweetheart will be easily ignored.
          When his sweetheart loss her beauty..
          When his sweetheart's time is reducing..
          When his sweetheart considered less perfect than the other girl..
          Therefore, do not trick me with love words, with the pledge of allegiance, with promise will do anything for me, and just for my happiness.
...

          Ukai Ryutai:
...
          I tell you, kid, there is not nature responsibility for someone to care with the others.
          Find something that could give, YOU, benefits, that is goodness.
...
          Moreover, responsibility to helping the others, comes from the selfish kindness.
          Listen to me, the older man, carefully, kid.
          If you do something that hurt the others, you will be hated, insulted, and harassed; don't you? Even, they will punish you!
          Therefore, you should care with the others.
          See? Responsibility to care with the others comes from selfish kindness.
          Respect the others, and they will respect you. It sounds just like that, doesn't it?
          So, do anything as you wish, just like me, kid!
...




• Setting and the uNPCs focus

          While Senjutsu Minerva is living in the North of Jupiter, Kiken Kotori is living in the South of Jupiter which also known as the town for students.
          There, there is also a moral issue but about love between one kind or known as the homo issue; Every moral issue will be solved in the twelfth episode (The Socratic Court).




• Philosophy focus

          Probably you already have idea about the philosophy focus in the second episode. Yup, it is about Psychological Egoism and Ethical Egoism. ^^
          Which one is rational? Or both? Find out in the second episode!

• About the ending video:




          It is spoiler about the fifth episode (The Holy Punishment). Here the synopsis:
          After someone's death, grudge arise in Kotori's heart. No, it is not only about him or her, but with the whole world, as Kotori has so many bad experiences since she was kid and now reach the climax. The world which created by Minerva the Great doesn't good at all but it is bad due to so many sadness, also deceptions.
          As the result, Kotori decide to destroy everything in the world as a protest, struggle, to Minerva the Great who create the bad world, also as punishment for the world itself who doesn't care with Kotori and people. Kotori finally decide to win the Magus Survival Game and her wish is become Minerva the Great itself. So, destroy, punish, and re-create everything!
          Now, which one, Senjutsu Minerva will choose: join with her beloved cousin, Kiken Kotori, or, against her beloved cousin? Well, as you can see from the video, in the end, Senjutsu Minerva will against her cousin. But, what is her reason?

1 Mysterious Online Bug
(solved?)

 ​
• Online Play
          I could not Sign In, and the game closed by the game itself. But when the game closed and I tried again, the bug doesn't happen anymore.
          I believe this mysterious bug because of the free hosting service. Since the counter of the game official site increased by the search engine bots (I believe), the site become a big site and it mean the advertisements sometimes will show up. And as stated by the script author, the advertisements (additional codes) will cause an error to the online system. Someday I will buy, or subscribe to the premium account from the hosting provider so the advertisements will not show up anymore. I hope!
          But, it is really rare, the server sent an advertisements to the game. So it's alright, I guess.

Actually there are a lot of grammatical errors throughout the whole post.  Perhaps you could team up with someone whose English is better?  (Note: not everyone who has English as their first language is good at grammar.)  I think you need to have someone who proofreads everything.

          Someone said that there are a lot of grammar errors in the whole (game) post and suggested me to team up with anyone who advanced in English and proofreading everything. Yup, I would take the suggestion. Thanks for pointed the grammatical problem. But for some reasons, I prefer studying English with someone who advanced in English (probably I will take an English course) while updating the game.
          And yup, now about the second episode ^^ :

A. Story



• New playable character: Kiken Kotori

     • Background: how Kiken Kotori became sadistic girl
          Kiken Kotori was active kid, cool, kind, and care with others. Everyone didn't surprise if someone likes her. Even every people who ever live around Senjutsu family ever said, "You don't have a friend? Talk with Kotori!" (in fact, Kiken Kotori has many friends, childs even adults). And she used to played with Senjutsu Minerva who really quiet little girl (and cute!) and didn't have any friend, except, her beloved older sister (her nee-san), Nirvana Violet Senjutsu.
          But.. Kotori's parents really different with their daughter. Her parents didn't care with others even her mother has sadistic personality. When her parents back from a very long vacation (their vacation just after Kotori's birth), her parents showed that the world can be really fun, in sadistic terms. Everyday Kotori was bullied by her own parents, even was persuaded (and forced) to enjoy sadistic things by her mother, Senjutsu Kiken. As the result, Kiken Kotori, sometimes, enjoy to see blood from the others, also when the others suffered (including animal):
          No more cats, but the cat's corpse with full of blood is cute!
         The other results, Kiken Kotori murdered her own parents (who she thought as her enemies) in sadistic way. And she is very pessimistic with the word "love" or any kind of it (because her parents tends to say, "This is our love for you. So, listen, Kotori!!"). And her further experience showed that love is absurd (non-sense..).
     • Magic
          Kiken Kotori's magic is transfrom any kind of bringable things into very heavy form (think of metal, but stonger). Then, sharpen its corners. So, when she don't has a knife, she can use a pen!
          She calls her magic, "Sharpen Gift" (Yes, her magic is suitable with her personality which sometimes :) unpredictable), need to torment the other as soon as possible and in very sadistic way: slowy but sure..).
          The consequence is, she needs any bringable things whenever entering a Magus Duel. Or just fight as ordinary people. So her magic is useless without any or many "weapons" (any bringable things); her magic is more limited than others (as the condition, she can transform bringable thing just in 45 minutes and of course depends on her energy).
          But, because of her magical weapons is stronger than metal, she could use her magical weapons as a great armours: slash-resistance or bullet-resistance, for example. She calls this power, "Metal Defense".




• New playable character: Cloyd Yale

     • Magic
          He hasn't any magic. He just ordinary people. But he has antique big sword which heritage from his father; the sword is very very heavy, and sharp. He calls it, "The Red Sword".
          The consequence is, he only could attack an opponent (quickly) in the close range. But his attack damage is very big once succesful.
          The other consequence, he could not move fast, so he easily being hurt. But, he can use his sword as a strong defense.
     • Comparison
          This just as comparison for better understanding about the playable characters's abilities, and the comparison doesn't mean it is the good strategy to win the duel.
          With Kiken Kotori, Cloyd Yale could be the defender and the attacks spicer. Because both of his attack and his defense are doubled than Kotori's. And Kotori could be the good (fast and strong enough) attacker due to her magic.
          Against Kotori, once Kotori attacks, and her move locked, Yale could be the winner.




• Theme: Is There, Love?

          The theme is about relationship between Kiken Kotori and Cloyd Yale. How they are meet, dating at the first time, and helping each other in the Magus Duel facing Ukai Ryutai. In short, their love story. ^~^
          And their love story will answer one question: is there, love?




• Quotes

          Kiken Kotori:
...
          I said it is illusion, because, actually, everyone just think, then behave based their self-interest. In other word, everyone is egoist.
          There isn't people action that solely for the other interest or the other needs. Therefore, love, or any kind of it, doesn't exist.
...
          Therefore, if his sweetheart no longer fulfill his self-interest, his sweetheart will be easily ignored.
          When his sweetheart loss her beauty..
          When his sweetheart's time is reducing..
          When his sweetheart considered less perfect than the other girl..
          Therefore, do not trick me with love words, with the pledge of allegiance, with promise will do anything for me, and just for my happiness.
...

          Ukai Ryutai:
...
          I tell you, kid, there is not nature responsibility for someone to care with the others.
          Find something that could give, YOU, benefits, that is goodness.
...
          Moreover, responsibility to helping the others, comes from the selfish kindness.
          Listen to me, the older man, carefully, kid.
          If you do something that hurt the others, you will be hated, insulted, and harassed; don't you? Even, they will punish you!
          Therefore, you should care with the others.
          See? Responsibility to care with the others comes from selfish kindness.
          Respect the others, and they will respect you. It sounds just like that, doesn't it?
          So, do anything as you wish, just like me, kid!
...




• Setting and the uNPCs focus

          While Senjutsu Minerva is living in the North of Jupiter, Kiken Kotori is living in the South of Jupiter which also known as the town for students.
          There, there is also a moral issue but about love between one kind or known as the homo issue; Every moral issue will be solved in the twelfth episode (The Socratic Court).




• Philosophy focus

          Probably you already have idea about the philosophy focus in the second episode. Yup, it is about Psychological Egoism and Ethical Egoism. ^^
          Which one is rational? Or both? Find out in the second episode!

• About the ending video:




          It is spoiler about the fifth episode (The Holy Punishment). Here the synopsis:
          After someone's death, grudge arise in Kotori's heart. No, it is not only about him or her, but with the whole world, as Kotori has so many bad experiences since she was kid and now reach the climax. The world which created by Minerva the Great doesn't good at all but it is bad due to so many sadness, also deceptions.
          As the result, Kotori decide to destroy everything in the world as a protest, struggle, to Minerva the Great who create the bad world, also as punishment for the world itself who doesn't care with Kotori and people. Kotori finally decide to win the Magus Survival Game and her wish is become Minerva the Great itself. So, destroy, punish, and re-create everything!
          Now, which one, Senjutsu Minerva will choose: join with her beloved cousin, Kiken Kotori, or, against her beloved cousin? Well, as you can see from the video, in the end, Senjutsu Minerva will against her cousin. But, what is her reason?

E. How to Add the Patch



Please read carefully and do the instructions below:

1. Extract "Patch.zip" file in your IT,M? game folder.

2. Open the "Patch" folder, then you will see "CUT" and  "CUT AND REPLACE" folder.

• Don't forget to check every folder in the "Patch" folder. Because, sometimes, you will see "CUT" and "CUT AND REPLACE" folder again. Please take a note about those kind of folder:
• "CUT" folder: it means, you must cut every file in this folder and then paste it in the match folder (in, your IT,M? game folder).
     For example, if you find "CUT" folder in the "BGM" folder (in, the "Patch" folder), cut the files and paste it in the "BGM" folder (but
, in your IT,M? game folder).
• "CUT AND REPLACE" folder: it means, you must cut every file in this folder and then paste it in the match folder (in, your IT,M? game folder). and REPLACE the default files in the match folder.

3. Congrats! Your IT,M? has been updated! ^^ (and now you can delete the "Patch.zip" file and all "CUT / CUT AND REPLACE" folders!).
• If you see any "DELETE" folder, it means you can delete the match files on YOUR IT,M? game folder. Then you may delete the "DELETE" folder, with
any files in it.
• Please don't forget to rename the extracted "Patch.zip" file folder with "Patch" (so, do not name it as "Patch 2.01a" or any else).

Even though the game is cancelled, I'm still doing art in my spare time and seeing how it'd look.

It's a lot of fun. Wish I could be an artist!

Look at the pretty pictures, they're so lifelike, touch them... Yes... Do so.... It will be fine... Promise. :LZSgrin:
