    Demo:

    Click here to download!
    Some notes:
    -The demo is about 30-45 (more or less) minutes long, encompassing the whole prologue.
    -The text has a skip function (by pressing shift) so be careful with that.
    -If you're not too sure of how strategy combat works, read the combat manual when prompted.
    -I took out the old demos. If for any reason anyone wants them, Pm me.

    If you'd rather play the demo in french, Matsuo Kaito did an awesome work of a translation. You can get the french version here.

    Features and notes:
    -The game will consist of five chapters (plus a prologue and epilogue) and will be completely story driven. Combats will be strategy based.
    -Lorelai, Queen happens in the WORMVX universe. In fact, it was created especially as a content project for WORMVX. As such, the mappings is 99% RTP (there are a few customs here and there, but they are minimal). I don't think there will be much customizing outside of combat, so don't expect a script festival or godly parallax mapping. Of course, it can be a stand alone and you don't need to know what WoRMVX is to enjoy it.
    -The game will mostly focus on story and events, with combat being a minor feature, so if you're the kind that can't stand all that dialogue before the fights start, this project is probably not for you.
    -There will be many references to other kingdoms and places, and it's on purpose. It's mean to give some context and ideas to add to the WORMVX universe.

    Game Progress:

    What's done so far:
    -Prologue (completed in demo)
    -Plot events of chapter 1 and 2 (no sidequests).

    What's coming next:
    Full game. In this case, doing chapter by chapter releases is not a good idea. Some script functions like titles only work from new games, so it would be nasty to import.

    What's needed:
    Beta testers. I need people to read over the dialog to make sure it runs smoothly and to find any bugs/inconsistencies. If anyone is interested please send me a PM or say it in this thread, thank you.
    If by some odd miracle anyone wants to help to do anyone else, I'd be glad to give you work (this being a rather fantastic situation, I don't think it will happen, but just in case XD).

    Support:
    Here's a support bar. I will be flattered to infinity should I see it around XD

    I really fangirl Lorelai (if you have not noticed). You have great and strong female characters and I always get good laughs, interesting plot points and tears when playing your projects.

    I really hope sites stop putting up contests, so you finally settle down and finish Lorelai! D8< (Though, I love your other projects too. unu) Seeing creative people work is very inspiring. Pentalen's art is something that's really got me going with art, as well, you are what has gotten me developing my projects more seriously. :3 My muse~

    Your screens look great and reading over your story has made me excited about playing your game! You're characters seem well developed and thought out. A definite plus. I'd love to take it for a test run and give you my opinion on it. Best of luck releasing the entire game at the end as I know that's a daunting task.

    Wow. I wasn't impressed with Lorelei's character at all at first but after the first ten minutes I just fell in love with her. The end of the prologue is fabulous. Battles are interesting, if easy. I can't wait to see what all you do with this game. I'll be stalking this page like a ninja. :ph34r:

    This game radiates a promising energy, downloading demo right now. One question, are those custom-made face graphics? Really, if they are... there monstrously good looking!

    "Go and show your beloved your love-nest, Darian."

    Hahaha, that's probably the best quote I've seen in a RPGM game to date. I love the battle system as well, and the story is catchy and engaging. Can't wait to see more!

    @Irili: Glad you liked her! She's the one you see the most, so not liking her at all would pose a problem ><

    @Risk Breaker: Not YET XD (but they will be, in the future). They faces from a japanese artist.

    @Deadsong: The king is a perv and enjoys teasing Darian. It is a fact.

    Overall I have to say: Lorelai is on hold (briefly-ish) until I finish In Search of Dragons (which should take...a couple of months? I can't say with precision). Once I finish that, I'll be comign back to Lorelai and probably port it to ace.

    Since I've made a few talented friends since I started Lorelai a year (was it a year? I think so) ago, I'll be investigating the possibility of custom faces/cutscenes, and better mapping (initially Lorelai was made on VX RTP on purpose for the Arum world, but since the rules for it have gotten much more flexible with tilesets I'll prob give the maps a facelift.

    I enjoyed this very much. The plot seems intriguing and I really like Lorelai, even though at first I thought she'd be a sort of a mild mannered, apathetic lady with DID, but such is not the case and she turned out to be something else entirely. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the game :)

    Very happy to hear In Search of Dragons will be finished soon. Played demo and love it! Well, played both demo's and loved them. Lorelai would make a great movie but an even better RPG :)
